Evoc Hip Pack Race – compact bag with 1.5litre bladder

Compact riding bags are becoming more popular, and the new wave of hip packs are damned good (check out the Source Hipster review right here).

Evoc Hip Pack Race 3L-1

Hip packs are back with a vengeance – and the Evoc Hip Pack is one of the best we’ve seen so far. Full review coming soon.

This Evoc pack is quite a bit bigger than the Hipster – so will appeal to those who ride for longer but still want to carry the minimum. It has decent internal storage; comes with a bladder and can hold a bottle externally too.

The Details

As with all Evoc products, it’s a high quality item and looks amazing. The construction is on point too – the Evoc Hip Pack is made from a tough and weatherproof ripstop nylon.

Evoc Hip Pack Race 3L-13

The back panel of the Evoc Hip Pack Race sits off your back for comfort, and has decent airflow.

The hip strap is wide and has two zippered pockets, and the main compartment houses and comes complete with a 1.5litre Hydrapak bladder.

Here are the details:

  1. Tough ripstop nylon construction
  2. Two zippered hip pockets
  3. Wide, comfortable waist strap
  4. Air Flow System for comfort and avoiding sweaty build up
  5. Light mount
  6. 1.5litre Hydrapak bladder included
  7. Strong magnet catch on waist band to stop hose flapping about
  8. Bottle holder
  9. Load straps – to pull the bag close to your body
  10. Quick access tool compartment with internal organiser – a compact version of the same system used on their full sized riding packs
  11. 3x colours – Olive green; Black or Red
  12. £56.95/76.95 with bladder
  13. Available from Silverfish UK 

The magnetic catch is really strong on the Evoc – more so than the Hipster pack, which means it should fare well out on the trails. It’s good that you can position it where you like too – some prefer on the waist strap but others might put on their clothing in an easy to reach position.


We’ll be out on the trails using the Evoc Hip Pack Race this weekend, and will report back soon with a review…
