Perfect bit of minimalist kit for the trails. (no more sweaty backpacks!)
Prior to purchasing this, I used a Cactus backpack which was a fantastic piece of kit but ultimately, the Hightop is so much more comfortable. No more sweaty back, much better ventilation and the amount of stuff I can pack into it is amazing. Looking to get the bottle holder attachment for it as well, and the straps. Looking forward to attaching the Hightop to my backpack I take to work without having to carry multiple items of gear.
So far I am very pleased, it’s comfortable, doesn’t shift
I also like the fact that it can be compressed and isn’t always the same size
Hands-down, the Hightop is the best hip pack I have come across. Build quality is as you expect with any Stealth product - second to none, but fit and functionality is where this bag really shines. I never thought a hip pack would work for me due to my lack of hips, but alas the hightop fits great and doesn't budge even when sending it down the hardest tracks I can ride. I can carry almost nothing in it or I can carry everything I need for a long day of riding. It has completely replaced my Camelbak. Thanks, Mike!
I have only just received the Hightop and taken it on a few rides. First impressions are excellent. The build quality is really, really good. I have ridden with it in pouring rain and with the custom waterproof insert everything has remained 100% dry.
The bag fits well, is super easy to open and close and has replaced my backpack for most of the riding I do. I'm looking forward to taking it on my bikepacking adventures in the future!
Take your adventures further than before with the Hightop.
The Hightop is a roll top bum bag with a maximum of four litres volume – giving you the option to ditch your backpack and ride with your gear in a lower and more comfortable position.
The Hightop features a custom Polypropylene and EVA foam back panel, reinforced by an alloy strut, enabling the bag to hold its own when things get rowdy. Rest assured the contour of the alloy strut and supple padding of the EVA foam will remain comfy even as you're heading into the later hours of your journey.
The 38mm waist strap comes complete with extra wide and long load spreaders that will hug your waist tight. The strap is easy to adjust with dual adjustable buckles. A simple roll top opening creates a wide entry to the bag, making it easy to pack and variable in size. Once packed, it is easily fastened closed with a few rolls and a quality ITW buckle.
Each side of the bag features our brand new modular attachment system. Both sides have a short daisy chain of webbing combined with a webbing tab at the bottom. For extra capacity the Bottle Pouch (purchased separately) or Zipped Pouch (purchased separately) can be added to the bag with a nifty attachment set.
There are two loops on the bottom of the bag which can be used to attach straps, such as our Voile Straps or Stealth Straps, to carry a rolled up jacket, camera tripod or anything that takes your fancy.
The optional HF welded waterproof liner (purchased separately) can be dropped into the bag if the forecast is looking wet, ensuring your contents inside the bag stay dry.
The Hightop can be used for a wide range of activities from quick laps of the bike park to all day backcountry missions. Simply select the components you need and enjoy the ride in style.
