A 100% waterproof, seam welded bikepacking front pouch that sits on top of your harness. New for 2023 is a Fidlock magnetic closure with adjustable spring toggle. This allows the closure roll to stay tight no matter how full or empty the bag is.
The rear panel has two rows of daisy chains to integrate with Voile® straps (sold separately). Horton is purpose built to be among the best volume-to-weight ratio front bags while leveraging the unrivaled stability and security of Voile® straps. The handle bar connection is variable, allowing multiple attachment locations. When used with our Barjam Harness, a single connection to the Barjam leaves a strap-free handlebar for a clean, uncluttered cockpit.

Horton Front Pouch is design to connect to your voile straps wrapping around your front harness.
It easiest to first load handlebar connections on the daisy chain. These come already attached when shipped out and connect to the daisy chain with a simple girth hitch. To remove and reposition, un-thread the webbing through the cam locking buckle. You may also use a single handlebar connector in the middle of the daisy chain if you can connect it to your harness (such as the bar from the Rockgeist Barjam Harness).
Next thread the Voile straps through the appropriate location on the rear panel daisy chains. The top of the Voile strap should be at the top row of the Horton daisy chain.
Then wrap the Voile straps around your dry bag and secure the straps.
What Packs Best in Horton?
With no zippers to fail, Horton is meant to be overstuffed with electronics, food, gloves, etc. Protect your gear and leave nothing essential behind.
“Aside from the fact that it’s waterproof, the great thing about the Horton is how easy it is to access what’s in it. It offers what I would consider the most user-friendly and versatile means of up-front storage.”
Horton is Welded in Asheville, North Carolina
