Oveja Negra, based in Salida, Colorado, created the Bootlegger to provide a little extra storage on the fork without the need for a cage or straps. The Bootlegger is built around an internal lightweight aluminum alloy frame that bolts directly to standard three-pack water-bottle fork mounts. The body of the bag is made up of three layers, an outer layer of X-Pac or Cordura, a lightweight foam padding insert, and a bright colored interior nylon fabric. There is also an additional layer of Hypalon where the alloy frame is sandwiched in place. The cylindrical interior fits a 32 oz Nalgene bottle, a 40 oz wide Klean Kanteen, or an assortment of gear (two-liters worth, to be exact). The bag also features urethane-coated webbing for increased durability, a reflective logo, and includes stainless steel washers for a secure installation. After putting these things through the wringer on the Baja Divide and Arrowhead 135 bikepacking race, we can certainly vouch for their durability.
The pair up for grabs has a MultiCam outer fabric and a yellow interior. For Collective Reward #012, one lucky Bikepacking Collective member will be drawn to win them both.
