TYR Convoy Transition Backpack $179.95
Organize your life.
As we're sure that you know, the life of a triathlete is one spent on the road. And further complicating this lifestyle, is that your three disciplines require three different sets of gear. So, to bring some much needed organization to your life, TYR created its Convoy Transition Backpack.
This backpack features an ample 30 x 15 x 15in dimension to house all of your race day essentials. And for thoughtful organization of your gear, TYR included three internal mesh dividers. Accordingly, you're able to organize your pack by swim, bike, and run. If you're wondering where your wetsuit is going to go, don't worry. The Convoy comes with a wetsuit dry bag in order to keep your dry gear dry. TYR added two external water bottle pockets for hydration, while also adding external zippered compartments for either small goods or nutrition. Furthermore, the bag also has dedicated helmet storage on the exterior. Basically, below the closure, there's a stretchable mesh compartment that accommodates most helmet sizes. So, your internal volume isn't taken up by your TT helmet.
However, if all of these compartments and pockets are starting to paint the picture of a log-jam, that's only because we haven't told you how the bag opens. Essentially, TYR designed the Convoy to open like a tool chest. This way, all of your gear is presented on the horizontal plane, not leaving you to aimlessly dig into a pit of despair.
As for the construction itself, TYR made the exterior of the bag from a durable, water-resistant nylon. There's padding throughout the lower back, mid back, shoulder, and obliques, as well as a supportive metal frame in order to take the edge off of carrying weight. And furthering this concept are padded waist buckles that still grant easy access to the pack when buckled.
The TYR Convoy Transition Backpack is available in one size and in the colors Black/red and White/black.
