Louis Garneau Tri Pack Revo

I present to you the Louis Garneau Tri Pack Revo. What’s so different about this tri bag you ask? Firstly, it dons a chair! Yes, a chair. A fold up seat to rest those tired legs in transition. Perfect for when the race is over and you don’t feel like bending down to take those running kicks off. Beyond the chair, there’s a plethora of pockets and zippers. One main as pictured below, which is sectioned off into additional pockets, and then another main. If you’re thinking this many pockets on a tri bag is overkill, then try to use a standard backpack for a race and see how hard it is to keep track of the insane amount of items we trek around to and from training and races. Everything seems to have a place in the Revo. With all these pockets to hold your gear, the bag may get heavy. Thus, LG designed the shoulder straps to be soft and ventilated, as well as putting in a cushioned and also ventilated ergonomic back.

  • Mesh pocket under bag
  • Adjustable sternum strap
  • Velcro fastener on one side for one pump
  • Buckle strap on top
  • Mesh pocket for water bottle
  • Helmet holder
  • Safety light holder
  • Water resistant 420 Deniers
  • Reflective
  • Full capacity: 46 liters / 2806 CU
  • Adjustable outer flap with buckles and barrel

Above is an open view of the inside of the main pocket. There’s a great soft, zip up pocket perfect to hold your shades as well as a larger zip pocket to better organize your items. This bag is also perfect for multi-use as a traveling bag. I take mine on airplanes, road trips, and any other place that I can get away with not needing to use a heavy luggage bag. The Louis Garneau Tri Pack Revo is what everyone needs for toting their schwag to and from races, training, and traveling, available at One Tri. Below I can be found utilizing my handy fold-up stool in the office.

Race Day Revo Review

Economical, budget minded, thrifty. Any way you word it the Louis Garneau Race Day Revo backpack gives access to top-tier features, found in other more expensive bags, while maintaining an entry-level price point.

The Race Day Revo all suited up and ready for business

You’ve seen the 10 gallon hat, now meet the 5 gallon bag

This transition bag, in this humble reviewer’s opinion, doesn’t strike an especially strong aesthetic chord with my discerning eye for what’s kitsch or cool, however the bag delivers where it counts. Louis Garneau manages to fit in numerous bells and whistles into the Race Day Revo, incorporating:

  1. Vented wetsuit compartment
  2. Double sided-internal dry compartments for shoes
  3. Vented towel compartment
  4. Sunglasses/goggle pouch
  5. External helmet connector

The Race Day Revo manages all of these extras while still showing off the usual assortment of side pockets and water-bottle holder.

Just another day as the office water-boy...

Constructed from extremely thin nylon, this race day bag is completely waterproof and collapsible to the point where you could just roll it up and pack it anywhere when not in use. The internal compartment doesn’t seem large, since the bag itself is smaller than most, however we managed to fit a 5 gallon water bottle inside with ease meaning that it will fit all of your race day gear, and then some. When you break it down the Race Day Revo’s weight is designed to be light (it won’t break your momma’s back) and when a problem comes along, the Revo whips it (whips it real good).

At a triathlon transition where space is usually scarce, having a bag too bulky would make things much too difficult.  One, you’ll likely peeve other people around you, and second,  merely getting organized ends up being a more daunting task if  you end up bringing too much to transition.  This is why the Z-Pack is a great choice.  Bring what you need to your training session or race day, so you can focus on what’s most important – your race.
