Swift Industries and Tenkara Rod Co. announce The Elwha Pack, a collaboratively designed hip pack and bicycle handlebar bag. Mounted at the bars of your bicycle, the Elwha hip pack straps stow discreetly out-of-sight, and the bag secures to the bars using a soft-mount webbing system. No racks or metal attachments are necessary. The 2.5 liter pack was built for the essential fly fishing kit, sunscreen, maps, and windbreaker, and can be easily integrated into a front bedroll harness. There are two exterior webbing straps on the base of the Elwha Pack to securely carry a Tenkara fishing pole (or new limited edition Swift Industries X Tenkara rod), and features details that optimize the pack for fly fishing.
The Elwha Pack measures 10 x 6 x 2.5″ (25 x 15 x 6cm) and has 2.5L (155 cubic inches) of volume. It’s made with a Dyneema Ripstop liner, 1000D Cordura exterior, spacer Mesh, and waterproof YKK zippers. The bag sells for $120, and the Elwha Tenkara Rod fly rod combo for $270 ($30 off MSRP). Both are available for pre-order at builtbyswift.com, and will be shipping worldwide starting on July 20th, 2018.
