Looking for that balance between lightweight and rugged, with the perfect capacity for the basics (and a few extra comforts)? You've found it.

The Pioneer 12 ups the ante from its smaller sibling the Pioneer 9, with extra capacity and a few key upgrades. The Pioneer 12 Pack can be a hip pouch, a bicycle handlebar bag, a crossbody bag, or even a dopp kit to organize your toiletries and essentials.

This bundle includes our standard handlebar kit for easy bike mounting.

The Pioneer 12 is also compatible with a removable belt, or the light-duty shoulder strap to upgrade your pack to crossbody functionality.

Featuring a clamshell zipper and slips on the side carry loops, the Pioneer 12 Pack opens fully, laying flat for packing, or to become a mobile work station in the field. Two rows of 1.5” Velcro strips allow for internal velcro-in pocket upgrades. A handy zipper pocket on the front is great for quick access items and will fit your smartphone easily with other essentials.

As a hip pouch at your side, on the handlebars of your bike, or a useful clutch in your hand—carry the Pioneer 12 Pack however it best works for you.
