Single Track World

Although I wasn’t sold on bum bags to start off with, using the Palos has changed my opinion. It’s a great riding pack that is just as well suited for short post-work trail rides as it is being used while you cut hot laps of your favourite trail centre.

One of the comfiest bumbags we’ve tried, with a great reservoir, but you need to cinch that waist strap up tight.
