Spinner Review in the Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine

image

Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine puts the Green Guru Spinner pack to the test.

image

Unique you ask, well the Spinner has quite a few things that set it apart from other companies offerings. The first and most obvious is that it is made from upcycled bicycle inner tubes and recycled performance fabrics made from post-consumed water bottles. In fact every product that Green Guru offers is made from a combination of recycled materials.

Daily commutes to work, hikes, overnight trips, a gear pack, you name it you can use the pack for it. This thing is tough. The inner pockets of the pack have plenty of organization and at 1268 cu. in. of space it has room for everything you can imagine.

You can read the full review on:
