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.

Got this mostly for the style. Wasn't expecting it to be as functional as it is. Compared to my much-used Osprey Seral, this is actually better for real MTBing. We have a winner. It's made in Seattle, so I guess it's more Swift than Kitsbow. It's superbly made, with zero loose threads and a nice light blue ripstop lining. It has one zippered pocket inside, against the back panel. Wish this was on the opposite side so my pump and tools aren't held against my lumbar. Top has a waterproof zipper. It fits my 2L bladder. The exterior roll-up function works great, which was my main issue with the Seral and all other lumbar packs--no room for shedding your jacket. In sum, this is a fantastic MTB ***** pack, not just a cute companion thing for an Icon.
This pack has been with me through gravel rides, mountain rides and hikes. It has held up exceptionally well through all the elements I have thrown at it. With the sidekick attached for hikes and removed for rides (With the option of the sidekick fastening to the stem), it has become a go-to pack of mine for multi-adventure days. This all stacks on top of the ability to shed some layers (My Icon) and store them in the cargo flap!
