PNW Components just sent us over a sample of their newest bit – the Rover Hip Pack. In addition to broadening from cockpit componentry and launching into the apparel world, they’ve now taken the dive into accessories. We got the bag just in time to get some snaps to accompany the news, but we haven’t christened it on the trails yet. Stay tuned for a full review in the coming months. In the mean time you can have a read through the press release below…
[Press Release] – PNW Components today launched their new Rover Hip Pack, extending the brand’s expansion into soft goods and apparel offerings.
No frills, just pockets, the new Hip Pack is designed to simply and elegantly hold anything that riders want to carry. The pack features a main compartment for larger items, a secure neoprene padded pocket to keep riders’ phones safe, and two wing pockets that allow riders to easily access smaller essentials without having to remove the pack.
To ensure durability while keeping things light weight, the Rover Hip Pack employs tri-layer sailcloth laminate fabric. Each of the Rover’s wings are individually adjustable with tension locks to quickly and easily secure the pack, and a padded air mesh back panel optimizes rider comfort and keeps things cool.
The Rover Hip Pack is complete with polyurethane-coated YKK zippers to ensure gear stays dry, as well as an internal key clip and a detachable water bottle holder.
The Rover Hip Pack is available in two colors, Dark Matter (Black) and Star Dust (Light Brown). Retail MSRP: $69 USD
Maintaining PNW’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, the tri-layer sailcloth laminate fabric used in the Rover Hip Pack is manufactured from 100% recycled polyester, and the pack ships in compostable and biodegradable packaging. Like all PNW Components branded products, the Rover Pack is covered by the same Lifetime Warranty. PNW is committed to cover any failure due to a manufacturing defect and will repair or replace without charge to the original owner.
