I’ve used a lot of hip packs over the past few years and it’s always hard grading them. A lot of it comes down to strap thickness, interior space, pockets and how well they carry weight since mine usually carry a small camera as well. High Above’s newest hip pack, the Lookout is the culmination of everything they’ve learned over the past six years of building bags. It’s loaded with details and features, including a water bottle holster for those mountain bikes with only one cage and is made in Washington. Check out more on the Lookout and the other packs currently available at High Above.
