For off-roaders and trial riders, a solid backpack/hydropack/toolpack situation is vital. Some guys like a hip pack, some just a hydro, some use a vest, and some guys from the 80’s rock fanny pack (the same dudes still have neoprene bungies on their sunglasses). There are a lot of different setups available and Zac Speed wants to offer you the most configurable pack situation without having to have a ton of different packs. The Zac Speed system is based on three different packs (Sprint = small, Recon = medium, Dakar = large) that can be fitted with four different front straps, and an optional waist belt option. You can rock the standard straps that come with the backpack, or swap them out for a POV harness, vest, or chest protector – all of which integrate into the backpack using a “ladder lock” system. Basically, you open up the section of the pack that would be against your back, pull out a padded shield, then pull out the extensions of the straps. This not only allows you to swap the front piece/pieces, it also allows you to tailor fit the pack. Check the pages of Dirt Rider soon for a full review.
