Acre Supply has introduced some really clean, well thought out hydration packs as of late. An entity of Mission Workshop, they have also been filling a much needed void in the MTB apparel world.
The USA made Hauser is available in a 10 Liter as well as a 14 Liter capacity.
The weatherproof pack accepts both Camelbak and Hydrapack reservoirs. The Hauser has waterproof zippers, as well as some other really unique features. The pack can have either reservoir system included for an additional $35.00
An internal tool roll can be added to any bag and keeps tools quiet and all in one place.
The waist belt and shoulder straps both feature two different attachment points. This ensures that regardless of load size and body type, one will be able to find the perfect fit.
We really dig the stowable straps for lashing kneepads on. It’s nice that they tuck away into their own dedicated pocket to keep things tidy.
The padded mesh backside has a unique shape and is said to be extremely breathable and stable while riding.
As expected, a full face helmet also lashes on nicely.
Colors are as follows :
*Red, Black, Blue, Grey and Camo
*Hauser 10 Liter – $195
*Hauser 14 Liter – $205
As mentioned before, Acre is making some refreshing apparel. Their goal is to make gear that is technical, comfortable and well made, but doesn’t look garish. Their jackets, jerseys, henleys and shorts look amazing both on and off the bike. The gear is something you could ride all day in, and then grab a beer with friends without looking like a knob.
Acre offers jerseys in both Merino and Synthetic materials.
Their riding shorts are 4 way stretch and feature a non stretch belt that is easy to cinch or loosen while riding.
The Orion shell was at interbike on display, but what really caught our eye was the Meridian Shell in the catalog. It’s available as a hybrid, full shell, and vest. More info here
Did we mention that everything from ACRE and Mission is made in either the USA or Vancouver?
Oh yeah, they also had the coolest booth at interbike?
