Forget rummaging around in your backpack for those little items that always end up in the bottom of your bag. There's a new breed of backcountry bag in town, one that can keep your essential gear right at hand, no matter what you're doing. Sure, there are already fanny packs, but you can leave those to bingo halls and flea market shoppers, because RIBZ is here.
RIBZ Front Packs are the missing link for the outdoorsman and sportsman who need easy access to the gear they need the most often. Made from water-resistant ripstop nylon (210d), and weighing in at about 9 ounces while empty, the RIBZ pack can handle up to 800 cubic inches of gear (and up to 10 pounds in weight), and helps to reposition a part of your pack weight to the front of your body. The pack is designed to to be an addition to a backpack, but can also be worn alone as a gear vest.
