Poco Safety Notices – Featuring Escapist 32 – May 27, 2015

Bikepacking is the two-wheeled adventure that brings cycling and backpacking together. Because with a bit of planning and a little more gear, it’s easy to upgrade a fun mountain bike ride into an epic bikepacking overnight escapade. And there’s a good chance you already have most of the stuff you need; bikepacking is king of the “run what you brung” ethos…

Similarly, I’m going to run my Osprey Escapist 32. Having ridden with panniers as well as backpacks off-road, I like how keeping the bag on my back keeps the bike more nimble. And my medium/large Escapist can accommodate about 32 liters and up to 30 pounds of stuff. A hip belt and harness keep the bag steady and lower compression straps help me stabilize the load.
