Words by Sarah Bedford
EVOC’s Hip Pack Pro 3L is one of the more stable hip packs on the market, and it comes with a 1.5l bladder and mesh side pockets big enough for two water bottles.
The Venti Flap cinching system makes adjusting tension in the hip belt easy, so the bag stays put on even the roughest of descents.
With two main compartments, two well-sized side pockets and two open mesh pockets for water bottles, or those essentials you want within easy reach, the Hip Pack Pro 3L isn’t short of storage.
Its front-zipped pocket opens to reveal multiple internal, elasticated sleeves and compartments. This makes it easy to find what you need for fixing mechanicals on the trail.
EVOC emphasises the benefits of its Air Flow Contact System. These are shaped air channels and pads on the back panel claimed to evenly distribute the pack’s weight around the wearer’s centre of gravity while providing cooling.
The Hip Pack Pro 3L delivers excellent comfort and stability that’s close to the performance of one of the best cycling backpacks; a testament to its impressive design and construction.
The VentiFlap system also makes loosening the pack for climbs easy, and meant I didn’t have to re-adjust the main strap while on the move.
This pack exudes quality, with a great design that’s well manufactured.
Thanks to the body-conforming shape, it will fit your back and hips with well-positioned anatomically friendly padding.
The addition of a clip buckle only improves how easy it is to secure and tighten up.
Sweat and heat build-up is minimal with maximised airflow, which means it has become my go-to pack on most rides.
