Cycle products from Montana-based outdoor equipment company Pacific Outdoor Equipment are now available to buy in the UK.
The line includes pannier bags, commuting rucksacks and messenger bags, as well as camping gear.
Pacific Outdoor’s One Less Car series is aimed at getting more people on bikes by providing high-end, good quality weatherproof luggage and accessories.
The kit we’ve got in includes the £37.99 Dry Hive under-saddle bag and £34.99 medium Underseat bag – both with handy quick-release clips which securely fit the bag to the bike when you’re riding, and can quickly unclip when necessary.
The £11.99 G-Pouch is designed to hold mobile phones, GPS devices or anything else you want to keep safe and dry, using both a rail zip and roll top. It’s got a belt loop and snap hook attachment, which gives you plenty of fixing options.
The £24.99 Half Zoom is designed to keep your digital camera dry and safe from knocks. With a padded liner, it uses a rail zip and the double-coated waterproof fabric rolls down to seal the contents and keep the interior dry.
The D-Pouch will keep your documents dry and clean
For riders who use maps or want to keep other documents safe, the £9.99 D-Pouch has a rail zip and foldable Velcro closure to keep everything dry inside. Invaluable on those rainy touring trips or off-road escapades.
First impressions of the kit are that it’s well put together and a lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into the design and construction. We’ll be testing the bits and publishing the findings on BikeRadar soon.
Pacific Outdoor Equipment are sponsoring the Cycling Plus Sportive at BikeRadar Live. Come along to DoningtonPark on 30-31 May and you can check out their kit for yourself. For more information, go to pacoutdoor.com.
