Nelson-Rigg Backpack

Post by RockportDave » Sun Jun 17, 2018 1:49 pm



I got up this morning and decided to go for a ride into town to get a few things and then to church. After returning home, I packed for my return to work and went out the front door (we normally use the garage door) to put the dog and clothes in the truck and spot a package from Amazon Prime. I had just ordered a capacitor for the pool pump motor Friday and couldn’t believe it got here so quick. Opened the box and inside, even better than the capacitor, is the Nelson-Rigg backpack I won on this site! Had totally forgotten about it. THANKS to all!
I took it out, unfolded from the pouch that stays connected and tried it on. Had the wife’s helmet handy, stuck it in and put it back on. Her helmet is a half with a face shield and there is plenty of room for more stuff.


It is lightweight and comfortable with the helmet inside.
I decided to try to stuff it back into the pouch. Turned it inside out, rolled it up and in it went.
The phone beside it is an iPhone 6 Plus for size reference.




Once again, thanks to all and WingAdmin for also getting it too me.

I agree, those things are pretty cool - I have one myself now as well, and my wife wants one, too. I wrote up a review here: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=42600
