Gourdon 20 Proto
By alpjim | 11, Feb, 2008
Nick has been peddling this proto of a Gourdon 20 around for the last six months... stock is on the boat and will be here in March.
Ever since we launched the Gourdon range of drybags people have been suggesting further developments. The original concept of the Gourdon was a dry bag with straps, not a rucksack that is waterproof. We have taken a plunge following suggestions from customers to make the 20 litre model a rucksack through and through. So it features a same hydration compatible back system as the new 25 and 30 litre models. As well as 2 external pockets and a bungee / compression system on the front of the pack.
Nick has been using the proto version for the past six months and has been extremely pleased with it, the size is bang on for a days riding or the daily commute to work. Production of the this new model earlier this month and the stock should be here sometime in March.
