Zone3 have made a number of exciting changes to their transition backpack and it’s now packed full of new features making it extremely functional and more comfortable than ever. Holding a capacity of 40litre, it is a particularly innovative design and much more than just a bag to carry kit in.
The backpack has been designed with three main compartments to help organise your race kit. Within each compartment there are itemised zipped pockets to help keep items separate and easy to find.
The bag has been cleverly designed so that each compartment is accessed in a different direction to help maximise space and functionality.
Zone3 found that many of the other backpacks on the market were not sturdy enough to stand strong unless the bottom section was being used or if there were no compartments. Zone3 have overcome this problem by tailoring the inner linings between each compartment so they can naturally flow into the compartment below regardless of how full of empty the backpack is.
The bottom compartment lining is 100% waterproof and shares the space with the middle compartment. The top compartment lining is a highly flexible and soft mesh material which also can share the space of the middle compartment.
