Unit price per 



Welcome to the modern era of a product category we innovated a quarter-century ago. We use the highest tech pack material ever used in a triathlon bag. We offer many features and compartments that are beneficial to the most organized person; but we also understand that sometimes you just want to pack it all up quickly and get home. This is why we offer the large main interior compartment that overtakes the entire space of all other compartments. Throw it all in, zip it up and go home!

New Features:

  • 45 denier polyester with TPU (Thermoplastic PolyUrethane) laminate makes this pack highly water-resistant and very durable
  • TPU finish gives a high gloss patent leather appearance
  • Bottom entry wetsuit compartment has heat sealed seams making it waterproof
  • Inverted nylon zippers create a streamline appearance and ensure smoother operation
  • Zipper pulls made of round nylon mountaineering cord for durability
  • Ergonomic shoulder straps made out of high-density foam for improved comfort when the pack is full
  • Vertical daisy chain the on outside to attach straps for carrying additional items like a floor pump, towel, yoga mattress, shoes, fleece or down jacket.
  • 2 D-ring straps included
  • Breathable foam padding against back offers comfort and insulation to hydration bladder pocket (bladder not included).

Favorite Features Remain:

  • Exterior helmet holder, with quick open for removal
  • Large top-loading main compartment overtakes the entire space of all other compartments if you want a duffel-style pack for optimal space.
  • Vertical Mid-Belly™ zipper for easy access to items at the bottom of the pack
  • Long transition rack strap to hang the pack
  • Light-color interior for easy viewing of what is inside and to eliminate the "Black Hole" effect.  Red has a red interior, White has a white interior, Royal has an orange interior.  All have black wetsuit compartment.
  • Interior case made of soft-plush fabric for sunglasses or swim goggles
  • Inside pocket against the back holds a hydration bladder (not included)
  • Exterior pop-out pocket holds 32 ounces (1-liter) drink bottle
  • Mesh water bottle holder fits a liter-size bottle
  • Waist strap with a durable nylon buckle makes carrying the pack more comfortable
  • Large exterior zippered mesh pocket
  • Don't lose your keys again! - Interior key ring loop inside the large exterior mesh pocket
  • TSA approved size for check-in luggage (simply pull out the helmet prior to placing in overhead storage).
  • The pack has a volume of 4000 cubic inches (65-liter) including the expanding helmet holder.  Height=22 inches, Average Depth=13 inches, Width=14 inches

NOTE:  We recommend not exposing any pack or product made of TPU to extreme temperatures above 120ºF (49ºC) or below 32ºF (0ºC), due to the possibility of the urethane melting, or freezing and becoming brittle respectively.

Great bag for a great price!

I love the bag — it will be perfect for race day! And also makes a great bag for weekend trips - makes it especially easy to bring bike shoes and helmet along just in case you want to get a ride in. Lots of space, smart compartments, and seems well made.

Excellent transition bag

Love this pack. It has plenty of space, the dry bag separation is key, and the external pocket fits my aero helmet perfectly. The only thing I’d like to see is a couple more small zipper pockets for ear buds, etc…but I carry a lot of stuff!

Transition pack

In addition to caring everything that I need for a race, I was quite surprised and please at the number of compliments I receive from women inside the airport and flight attendants, while easily stored it in my overhead compartment. Another much appreciated innovation. VR, Steve

Super High Quality

After having been through several bags, very impressed with the design and material quality of this one. Little things like high quality zippers and fabrics make a huge difference. This one is top notch in both. The design strikes the right combination between having enough pockets, pouches, for good organization without being "too cute." One problem I've had with bags is them being too "floppy" for my staste, but the stiffer fabric on this one gives a nice free-standing structure to the bag, which makes it easier to find things, etc. Highly recommended overall.
