For the biker, hiker, fisherman, hunter, walker, climber, and explorer. The Park Pack is designed to give you the protection you need, without interfering with the pure experience of your adventure.
This hip pack is lightweight and narrow - somewhere between “supportive” and “I forgot I had it on.” Wide hip straps provide lower back support and very little ‘flop’. A cube-like design is aerodynamic, letting you move freely with equally distributed weight on both hips. Its waterproof construction (600D Tarpaulin + YKK water-resistant zipper) assures your gear will stay dry so your adventure can continue, rain or shine. The Park Pack is an all-day comfort.
Both hip straps feature MOLLE straps, allowing both water bottle holders to detach, leaving room for alternative add ons - bear spray, fishing net, holster, etc. Inside the pack is a slim pocket fitted perfectly for our Triage Kit - covering your first aid and gear repair essentials (sold separately).

This pack is well designed and the triage kit it came with looks to be perfect for short outings. I bought this mainly for mountain biking and in the first few miles of using it I really didn’t notice it. Unfortunately I only got to use it for a few miles as I ended up taking a huge over the bars crash. This pack took the brunt of the crash and besides being a little dirty it’s still in perfect condition. It also doubles as a decent make shift sling.
The fit? Great. The bottle holders? Great. The med kit? Who doesn’t love a med kit when they need one. My only issue is more of a pet peeve. The high quality zippers can be a bit hard to zip/unzip but it’s only due to the water resistance material
I swore off hip packs after I got my first Camelback backpack 10+ years ago. I recently saw posts about the Park Pack claiming to provide a flop-free experience. I was intrigued, but I'm a skeptic. However, after a recent back-sweat-filled adventure with my Camelback, I caved in and bought a Park Pack. People... this thing is legit. My first experience was 3 days hiking the mountains in Montana and it fit so good. I began wearing it on my MTB for family rides and hard solo runs. You forget it’s there. My back isn’t sweaty. It perfectly holds a layer, food, phone, and kid stuff. The water bottles are easier to clean than a water bladder. Overall, 10/10.
