Mis­sion Work­shop The Axis bum­bag £105

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

Mis­sion Work­shop are known for their stand­out crafts­man­ship and lofty prices – both of which are present with the Axis ‘waist pack’. In­side the sin­gle, large, zipped open­ing is just one more zipped mesh pocket to help or­gan­ise smaller items. At least one more pocket or hav­ing the mesh pocket di­vided up would be use­ful to stop light loads shift­ing around. Even so, if you stuff a big tube, CO2 in­fla­tor, multi-tool, Leatherman-style tool, tyre levers, wal­let and phone into The Axis, it still does a great job of stay­ing put when the rid­ing gets rowdy. The stiff back panel isn’t padded but moulds to the shape of your body and is ex­tremely com­fort­able, even with poor pack­ing and lumpy items. Be­cause the waist strap is quite deep it spreads the load well and never digs in. Al­though pricey, the styling, qual­ity and com­fort mean we still re­ally like this pack.
