Backcountry Food Pouch Plus
Materials & care
KEEPS ALL THE ESSENTIALS SAFE, DRY, AND WITHIN ARM’S REACH.
An enhanced version of our original Food Pouch, the Backcountry Food Pouch Plus has the simplicity and convenience of the original, along with a few upgrades.
Designed to store anything – food, tools, snacks, arm warmers, even spare water bottles – within arm’s reach on either side of the stem (or both), the Pouch securely attaches with a flexible three-point system. Exterior mesh pockets are useful for catching empty wrappers, while a mesh drainage hole helps to keep the interior dry.
The Pouch’s contents are kept safe with a simple one-handed opening and closure system that’s easy to operate in the saddle. Meanwhile, tough body fabric and a padded interior make sure that valuables stay protected. An essential piece of kit for commutes or bikepacking rides long and short.
While the body fabric of this Pack is waterproof, due to the stitching process used to assemble the product, there is the possibility for water to enter through the seams when exposed to sustained rain. We recommend using an internal dry bag for contents that must remain absolutely dry.
The Backcountry Food Pouch Plus is made from Dimension-Polyant VX21, a four-layer laminated fabric originally developed for the maritime industry. Designed to fit the demands of off-road riding, the material combines waterproofing, light weight, low stretch, and high abrasion and tear resistance.
