The SingleTrack pack is rammed with nice little features and all in a lightweight package that sits comfortably on your back, even with a full bladder and supplies on board.

The main body of the bag is made from a thin but surprisingly tough waterproof material that’s kept our gear dry on long, wet days in the hills. There’s plenty of space for a 2-3l bladder (not included, unless you pay £20 more), a lightweight rain jacket, tools and a pump, and it’s all nicely organised, with small internal pockets and a tool roll.
Your kit is accessed via a chunky waterproof zip that runs a long way down each side of the pack, making it easy to get to, even with gloves on.
The back and shoulder straps are made from 3D foam wrapped in a mesh material that Endura call ‘Spinechiller’, which is designed to help keep you cool while supporting the pack properly. That said, we didn’t find the SingleTrack to be noticeably cooler on hot rides than other bags we’ve used.
Like many modern packs, this one comes with a removable helmet-carrying system. We found that it would hold a trail lid securely but with a full-face strapped in, the helmet would shift about annoyingly as we pedalled.
