I know about getting the weight off the rider on the bike, but I'm not struck on the long waiting times for delivery of the bespoke bikepacking bags and I'm not going the DIY route.
I've got a couple of Kestrel packs and don't find them too comfortable on the bike (Fargo with drop bars)
Racks and Drybags don't seem to be allowed, or is it just a fashion thing?
I have a Wingnut Hyper 2.5 for day rides which I really like; does anyone use any of the larger bags for bike packing?
I'm probably thinking of a Wingnut Enduro here:http://www.roughrideguide.co.uk/Enduro-colour-option-of-all-black-or-red-black.html
