Klim Scramble Pack
A lot of bag- for better or worse.
I ride with a Klim Badlands jacket, sandwiched (generally) between a tank bag and drybag. The Kim bag is well made with a quite large center pocket and 2 large side pockets. I found it far too bulky (for my needs). To large to put under the jacket, and if you put it over the jacket, you know what inevitably happens some day when you make a roadside stop (ps, if you find a Klim bag on a road in nowhere Burma, you know where it came from).
But, if you are looking for an extra large belt bag. you are in luck here.
(note- Klim- please make a slim version to wear under your jackets. Key is a strong/secure buckle- don't need to dump all critical documents & money)

Durable, practical, well-built
This is my first Kilm product except for socks, and I am duly impressed. My purpose for this pack is to mostly replace (and occasionally supplement) my tank bag, which doesn't typically end up with much in it.
The material is high-quality, as is the stitching and all clasps; the wide belt and large buckle are examples of using the right hardware rather than skimping.

I no longer need my back pack on which was so hot to wear. Wish I had ordered this before now. My son loves his also.

Klim has a winner here
This is a short review for the Klim Scramble pack. I am not a rally rider and do not expect to use this pack to it's full potential. Think of me as a regular touring rider and a non-technical off road enthusiast.
I love waist packs and am usually wearing one whether on or off the bike. When on the bike I try to avoid putting items in my jacket pockets unless they are small or flexible such as keys or a wallet. Anything hard goes in the pack. My current waist packs work well but there are times when I need more space and want the gear on my body and not in a tank bag or panniers. The two side pockets will carry everything I usually want with me. My wallet, phone, Canon S100 camera, my keys, earphones, and a small flashlight (Jetbeam PC10) fit perfectly in the two sides with room to spare. The back pocket which is designed to carry small tools has plenty of room for everything else I need to carry on my person. There is even a clear pocket for papers that runs the entire length of the back pocket and mesh pocket that is half the size of the back pocket.
What I really like about this pack is it's streamlined enough that I can have my Rallye 3 jacket over the Scramble or wear it outside the jacket. Either way it performs great. This pack isn't just for motorcycles either. I've worn it when mountain and road biking as well as just around town. For fifty bucks and free shipping this is a great buy!
