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.

This hip pack is awesome, putting my many other bike (under the saddle) bags to sleep, it’s very comfy and can carry lots of essentials, definitely recommend anyone try this out, it’s now my go to bag when riding. It’s well made but only time will tell how it holds up.
Most Comfortable Hip Pack I've Owned
I have used this pack for many rides over varying types of terrain, from the most mellow terrain to full on tech road gaps. This bag does not shift on my waist, keeps my stuff dry, and is comfortable to wear. Would highly recommend.
Great Bike-Specific ***** Pack
I bought the Anchor Hip Pack because the design looked cool and functional. I had been using an old-school ***** pack at times when I needed to shed layers on the ride and have a place to put them. This functions in that capacity and more. I dumped the saddle bag-tool kit on my woodsie bike and put that kit in the Anchor Hip Pack. I also moved my micro floor pump from a mount on the fork to the exterior straps on the Anchor Hip Pack. I did 65 miles on gravel last weekend and the Anchor Hip Pack performed exceptionally.
Put it to use everyday!
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.
