 The new SixPack from Knox follows on from the success of the Aeropack, which set new standards for motorcycle backpacks. Designers at Knox listened to feedback from riders to create a modern day/weekend sack that fulfils their requirements at an affordable price. It is called the SixPack because it has SIX practical benefits.

1. Ergonomic. Like military kit, the SixPack is engineered so that the majority of the weight is carried low over the hips to reduce stress on the lower back when worn over long distances. Additional load adjustment straps and chest straps mean the bag can be tweaked until comfortable and to ensue a perfect fit for each rider.

2. 25-litre capacity. Easy access to the main 25-litre compartment is achieved via a 180º zipper, which is protected by an adjustable storm flap.

3. Laptop carry-case. Inside is a high quality laptop carry case that is detachable, removable and large enough to carry a 17" notebook.

4. Spare visor pouch. Don't get caught in the dark thanks to a soft removable protective visor pouch for a spare visor that fastens safely to the interior.

5. Additional capacity. For added practicality the SixPack is fitted with a compression strap system to carry the Knox Stowaway roll-up back protector, bedding roll, etc.

6. Helmet carrier. On reaching the destination, put the helmet into the water-resistant helmet bag supplied with the SixPack, then fit it under the expandable helmet carrier on the back of the rucksack so it can be carried safely and securely. (NB the helmet-carrying feature is not designed for use while riding).

The Knox SixPack is produced in black/red with reflective trim and sells for £39.95 inc. VAT. Coincidentally, it is big enough to carry a six-pack too!
