    Question Bum bags!

    Any body any recommendations on any preferred makes of bum bag? Something light? I know they're a requirement to enter some races. Thanks.

    Pete Bland's PB bumbag is definitely the lightest and best for races. Nothing fancy, but plenty of room for all you need to take.

    I don't think bum bags are compulsory kit in races, it is what you put in them which is compulsory!

    NMNC - Pete Bland does not appear to list his own bumbag anymore - just the 'mass produced' stuff..OMM, Inov8, Lowe Alpine, Hilly etc. I'm still using my Rock n' Run with side tensioning straps, that I bought back in '84.
    It's rather sad that some of the good old standby's have disappeared - Rock n' Run Ridge Runner & PB LiteSac rucsacs amongst them

    I think there were some PB bumbags in one of the boxes outside the van last weekend, 10 if I remember right.

    I've still got my original green Rock n Run bag although not used much now as the zip bust a couple of years ago. Don't know why I have kept it though ~ for old times sake I suppose.

    I now use one of the new OMM ones. The side pockets are great for gels and jellies, compass & whistle, while the main compartment just about fits everything else in.

    Yes he does, I checked on his website, see link above, a tenner as Cougar says, down at the bottom of the page.
