New Product Discovery: Tough Traveler Trail Blazer & Hip Pack

Forget About It!

Tough Traveler Trail Blazer & Hip Pack

Tough Traveler is proud of its upstate New York roots and made-in-America products. It sells a wide selection of bags in a rainbow of colors, offering high-quality, washable nylon; YKK zippers; an adjustable waist belt; interior elastic top pocket; and a reflective exterior strip. The Trail Blazer hip bag is one of the sturdiest, most functional and comfortable utility packs you will find.

The size is deceiving, allowing you to carry more than you expect without even knowing you are wearing it as you pedal. We were able to fit a foldable toolkit with a 29-inch tube, 25-ounce CO2 bottle and chuck, a GoPro with tripod, a Rylo camera, a can of GUP sealant, an iPhone, a small phone tripod and a PB&J in a single sleeve pocket without maxing it out. The Trail Blazer dimensions are 15 × 5 × 3 inches and come in Royal, Orange Multi, black, yellow, orange, red, green and Surprise.

The REFL dimensions are 9 × 5 × 3.5 inches and come in Royal, Burgundy Multi, Grey Multi, red, black, yellow, orange, green and Surprise. Both have an MSRP of $65. Visit their website at for more info.
