Ogio Endurance 9.0 tri bag – review
Smart, but we’d save cash by going down a size for race day
Conveniently for those of us who get lost in our own homes, the stylish Ogio Endurance 9.0 tri bag comes complete with tags telling triathletes where to stash their kit.
There are designated areas for helmet and shoes, plenty of places to keep your tools and nutrition, with a ventilated waterproof storage compartment underneath for a wetsuit and a duo of insulated water bottle pockets.
As opposed to traditional tri bags from Huub, Amphibia and Blueseventy, the standout features are the armoured pocket for eyewear – a neat touch for not having your sunnies crushed in the boot of the car – and the backpack-style shoulder straps which are a useful addition to a holdall-style bag.
But is it worth the bumper £129 outlay? At 80-litres, there’s a sizeable argument to say that it’s actually too big for a race-day transition area (the 52l Endurance 8.0 at £89 would be more suitable), making this a fair whack to pay for a non-race day, non-airplane cabin-friendly gym kit bag. A shame, as it’s certainly stylish.
