After years of use and abuse, my Moose Tool Pack (ok fanny pack) has finally given up the ghost. Out on the market are a couple options. Ogio, KTM, Fox, Klim, etc all have their Tool Pack offerings, but Klim has always seemed to be the dependable choice with moto related gear. I had no idea what the insides really looked like, so I took a bit of a gamble, so hopefully what I show here and on my video can give you an idea as to what you’re getting into.
The Klim Scramble Pak has 3 main sections. The large center section and the two side sections. The two side sections are identical to each other and are not much more than an empty space. The main compartment is split up into several compartments. Unclip the two side clips and first you’ll see the outer pouch. This opening is about 6″ wide with enough room to fit your latex gloves or a couple rags, or maybe a few zip ties and odds and ends.
Flipping the top open, there is a large YKK zipper to access the main compartment. These zippers like all on the pack have a mild cover to them to help keep out the elements. Once the compartment is opened, you see your assorted slots, zip compartments, and elastic to keep your tools and gear in place. There is a big clear pouch which would likely be ideal for a phone, or whatever you may want a quick view at. One strip of the retention straps has a nice rubberized grip to it to help keep tools in place.
The side pouches themselves as noted earlier are primarily empty spaces. The outside wall of them is soft like that of a sunglass pouch. This outer wall also has a small elastic pouch to it. Both sides are identical and have YKK covered zippers on them.
The main buckle is a solid unit with a very strong hold to it. At the base of the pack there is a rubberized gripper to help keep the pack from rotating around your body while you’re riding. The padding on the inside of the pack seems to be plenty adequate and thick enough to keep tools from poking through the pack, without being too thick as to be bulky.
All in all, initial impression of the pack are very solid. I’ll be loading the pack up for some upcoming events and will do a year end review with it at the end of the season.
