Ergon BC3 bag


Price as reviewed:


Capacity: 25 litres

A rigid plastic frame keeps this bag away from your back, reducing sweat, and supports the pack on your hips.

No pack I’ve ever used feels as secure on my back but the rubberised hip pads are overkill as these can rub a little in use.

All compartments are waterproof and sealed with waterproof zips, and the main pocket features an organiser for your bits and bobs.

There is space for a drinks bladder and the front flap is adjustable for extra loads.
