Bike Radar

It’s one of most comfortable and stable packs we’ve used. It’s sized to be female specific but works for blokes just as well, especially if you need a narrower fitting strap. The outside is free of clutter, so snagging on branches is less likely. Wings help wrap weight around the waist to further stabilise it.
