Electric Bike Action Product Test: Bontrager Rapid Hip Pack
The Rapid pack is designed with a symmetrical shape and large pockets on either side, along with a place to stow a water bottle near the middle. It features a combined storage capacity of 100 cubic inches or just over a liter and a half. The cargo pockets on either side feature internal pockets for storage and a foam back panel to create a layer of padding between you and your accessories.
The middle pocket is designed to carry a water bottle and is said to better centralize weight compared to other pack designs. The pack is held in place with a buckle and has an adjustable strap for a one-size-fits-all system. The overall shape is made to taper around your lower back, creating a more pleasing aesthetic than a bulky rectangular-shaped pack. With all the pack’s contents removed, it weighs right around 220 grams. Riders can choose between black and olive green.
