What we think
USWE (pronounced - YOU-SWEEE) makes one thing: phenomenal product.
Lately, if you've been paying attention to some of the racing scene, you've seen these on some world-class athletes crushing events like Leadville 100, UNBND Gravel, or SBT GRVL.
USWE makes bounce-free action packs that provide the perfect fit on an individual level – developed and tested together with top athletes, pro mountain bikers, and core weekend warriors since 2007. Their mission from day one is to design packs that you can wear in action with a super-snug race fit.
Why is it different?
Outlander is a superlight race hydration pack developed and designed around pro mountain bike athletes originally. The pack is stripped off to go minimum on weight and to maximize the ventilation at the front. It’s like wearing nothing at all.
This pack has revolutionized what athletes experience when training and racing with a backpack. Before, it was all a gamble between comfort, unnecessary weight, and hassle. Now, the choice is clear with a pack that allows plenty of hydration but fits like a glove that truly doesn’t bounce around.
The Outlander 3 JR
This is a blend of their slim style of hydration pack with a big tanker of hydration for the extreme races. The Outlander 3 JR is stocked with a 1.5L Elite hydration bladder, high-vis features, and a detachable multi-pocket for any day out on the trails. It's suited for smaller riders or young shredders due to its XS harness.
No Dancing Monkey
Fitted with the award winning No Dancing Monkey™ 4-point harness that makes the pack 100% bounce free in action system.
"Since the dawn of the traditional backpack, people all over the world have experienced the same uncomfortable sensation. Like there is a wild monkey pogo dancing inside the backpack. A monkey that makes the pack bounce up and down and swing from side to side. For decades, the industry has tried to stop the monkeys but with very limited success. Of course, we are not talking about real life monkeys. But we think it’s the perfect way to explain the difference between a USWE pack and the traditional backpacks. That´s why we have named our patented harness technology to “No Dancing Monkey™. Hey, by the way! We really like monkeys, but we try to keep them away from your back. That is our promise to you"
