Swift X Kitsbow Anchor Hip Pack
Born of a challenge to improve upon an already classic outdoor design — the hip pack. At 2.5 liters of capacity, the hip pack’s overall shape is streamlined for on-body comfort.
A key feature of the Anchor Pack is a unique feature which easily accommodates those extra layers without adding to the surface area contacting the body. This expanding sleeve feature, the Anchor Cargo Flap, is brought to life with a special Pendleton® wool lining and simply tucks away and disappears when not deployed.
But we didn’t stop there! We added convenient attachment points for an optional Sidekick Stem Pouch accessory bag to carry an extra water bottle, snacks, or a bike tool.

I use this pack, coupled with the side pouch, for daily offroad commuting of ~20 miles / day, and it has really made my rides more pleasant. I usually have to bring a full change of clothes (which fits in the outer straps), phone, keys, and other misc. items, and this pack is large enough to hold all of that without needing a full backpack (which really makes me sweat more on by back during the hot-n-humid summer months). Even with the side pouch, I can sometimes forget that I'm wearing this pack if it isn't loaded down too much, and even when it is, it still remains confortable.
Love this addition to my Kitsbow gear. Great size and comfortable to wear. I will also use it for hiking and camping.
I love this bag, grabbed this and the sidekick and went for a 20 mile ride, this thing disappeared on my back while i was riding. i get asked where I got it and I let everyone know that its worth it.
This is my first using a hip pack. I love it !!! Plenty of room for all my gear including my iPhone. I enjoy taking pictures from my trail rides and storing the phone in my hip bag makes that so easy ( rather than my old back pack ) beautiful style and awesome craftsmanship... and did I mentioned it matches my new Icon !!!! Thanks Kitsbow and Swift !!!!
The Anchor is super well made, lightweight, and extraordinarily comfortable. it has well thought out storage without a bunch of fiddly, extraneous pockets or compartments. The zipper is easy to open and close without turning the bag to the front, and the exterior storage is fantastic for outer layers, rain jackets, or knee pads- and if I'm honest, the fact that the flap on that storage matches my Icon is one of my favorite features. My only regret is waiting so long to buy one!
