There are already several bag options out that fit the Jones Loop H-bar handlebar, but there were a few features Jeff Jones wished for — he wanted a similar Loop-specific bag that would be waterproof and easy to access with one hand. Jones just released the new H-Bar Pack that accomplishes both. It is a welded (not sewn) bag that is lighter and much more water resistant than other bags such as the Loophole. And according to Jones, “Careful placement of the four attachment points, combined with a new single, straight zipper makes the pack easy to open and close one-handed, which we really like!” The H-Bar Pack also comes with four additional pieces of double-sided hook and loop straps to add attachment points if need be.
The new Jones H-Bar Pack is made of a single-layer, TPU-coated waterproof nylon fabric and weighs only 95 grams versus the 162 grams of the Loophole Pack. It loses some of the organizational features of the Revelate-built Loophole Pack that Gin loves. But, it’s not meant as a direct replacement, rather, it’s another option for riders looking for a pared-down, less expensive, more waterproof version.
Features of the Jones H-Bar Pack
- TPU coated nylon fabric.
- Waterproof, welded construction with a water-resistant zipper for great water resistance.
- Long daisy chain sections along front and back of pack for very secure attachment.
- Single, straight-line zipper making it easy to open with one hand.
- Single layer construction is very light weight.
