North St. Pioneer 8 Hip Pack
There has never been a better time to purchase a North St. hip pack than right now! For every North St. Pioneer 8 sold between Oct 30th and Nov 21st, North St. will donate $5 to the National Parks Conservation Association. North St. has a mission to promote a more sustainable economy for our community and planet. The wild places on the earth are precious. We, at Endurance Review, hope that you will support North St. in their great cause.
The North St. Pioneer 8 is very similar to the North St. Pioneer 9 that we reviewed recently except in a slightly smaller package. The Pioneer 8 measures 8″ wide x 2.5″ deep x 4″ tall. I love the size. It is perfect for short day excursions, a day on the town, or a lazy sunday stroll. Especially when you don’t have pockets on your pants. The Pioneer 8 is big enough that it should be able to carry whatever you need, but small enough that you won’t notice you’re wearing it. The main pocket on the Pioneer 8 is very spacious and should be able to easily hold a wallet, phone, selfie stick, lotion, chapstick, point and shoot camera, and whatever else you hope to take with. The slim front pocket is perfect for storing a phone, protected from the rest of your items. An iphone 8 with a Tech 21 case on it fits with ease into this pocket.
The North St. Pioneer 8 packs a capacity of 90 cubic inches (1.5 liters) and weighs in at 7oz. It features 2 compartments and a fully adjustable sewn in belt, ranging from 30″ – 46″, for ease of use. Hand made in Portland, Oregon from rugged 1000 denier CORDURA® Nylon coated with Water resistant DWR finish on exterior, this thing is built to last. If it doesn’t, don’t worry, North St. has an amazing lifetime warranty. Extra long zipper ties are included to make your items easier than ever to get to. The zippers move easily and are very sturdy.
The North St. Pioneer 8 is offered in a wide variety of color options, and they all look fantastic. I especially love the green and brown Woods color option, shown in the photo below, as well as 2 of the photos above. This National Parks inspired option is a limited edition color and only 50 of them will be sold! So you better go buy yourself one as fast as you can on Oct 30th. With all of the different color options, why not get one for each of your loved ones at the same time?
