A high-quality pack that’s great for big days out in uncertain weather. The AirFlex curved mesh back provides good ventilation, keeping it comfortable and stopping your back getting too sweaty even after hours in the saddle.

The Splash Air is super-comfy thanks to the spring wire frame that keeps the body of the pack away from the mesh backing.
