Backcountry Food Pouch
Materials & care
Simplicity and convenience at a moment’s notice, on any track or trail.
Ideal for stashing food, sunglasses, gloves, or a cold drink, the Backcountry Food Pouch is a convenient and easy-access storage pocket for frequently used items.
Attached firmly with a versatile three-point system, the stem bag easily fits on either side of the cockpit and works with aerobars and Jones bars. The bag’s contents are kept secure by a simple one-handed open and closure system, and a subtly tapered design prevents knee contact while pedaling out of the saddle.
The plus versions of the stem bag include exterior mesh pockets for catching empty wrappers as well as a mesh drainage hole to help keep the interior dry.
While the body fabric of the stem bag 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 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.
Wash the Food Pouch by hand, using a mild diluted soap if necessary. Afterwards, let it air dry.
Do not machine wash, machine dry, or iron.
