Wingnut Enduro- Let's take a close look

Let's take a look at what makes the Wingnut Enduro a Wingnut!


The pack is made from DimensionPolyant Sail Cloth. It's lightweight, abrasion resistant and waterproof. Everything you need for a bikepacking pack



There's lots of room in there. The pack sports 1100 cu in. I call the way it opens and the way it can be loaded is like a suitcase.


Seal zippers


This picture is the bottom of the pack and the start of the Compression Lacing System


On the left shoulder strap you have a pocket for a gel flask. It will also hold a cell phone. If you notice the routing for the drinking tube is under the arm not over the shoulder.


This is a detail I really like. The belt clip that hold the tails of the belt strap. On most other packs they have a rubber o-ring that will break. I think this one will last for a while.


The wing pockets. One of the problem with most packs is that you cannot get to your things while on the move. The wing pockets lets you get to your stuff without having to stop.


The only thing I do not like is the key hook inside the bladder pocket. It is a little Mickey Mouse and looks like it would break the first time that you use it. I also do not like having a key in the bladder pocket. I should be giving it a test ride next week
