    Interestingly enough, I just got an email from them today. It was a reply to an email I sent on MARCH 27th!!!

    Not sure what I want to do at this point. I love the product, have had one since 07, but I'm not sure I trust sending my pack in to them for a repair.

    I just heard from Scott (Wingnut owner) today. He says that things are back on track.

    I heard from Scott as well this morning - says there was a material shortage but it should be back in stock next week. I'm ready to get my new bag

    Thanks for the update! Good to hear that they are shipping. I hope that you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine!

    The site is still pretty flaky.

    I have a 2.5 and it just ripped below the zipper for the water bladder compartment. I'm guessing that it would be better if I just take it to a local place to get some heavy duty stitching done on it. I need it in 10 days for a big ride and I'm guessing that it won't get turned around in time.

    I really hope they can keep it together. I love their packs. It would be hard to go back to a Camel Bak or Ergon pack.

    I like the Wingnut 2.5 that I have. The lower back position is great for keeping the weight off of my lame neck.

    My only quibble is that I've ripped both mesh wing pockets. Maybe they need to be made of a bit beefier material...or, I guess I should stop crashing!

    Anyone heard from Wingnut lately? I placed an order for a Hyper 3.0 a while back. No pack, plus their emails are bouncing, and the voice mail is full. I know they are a bit flaky, but just curious if anyone has received an order from them recently?

    That's a bummer. I absolutely love my pack and was >< close to ordering a new one, but you guys have me worried.

    I have an Osprey that I've been using to give my Wingnut a break... while I'm getting used to it, it's no where near as good for my back as the wingnut. Hope they haven't been responsive because they're so busy with orders

    Yeah, Scott is a character. Trying to reach him about a repair, emails keep bouncing back. Anyone have any info?

    Same problem here. I tried emailing about getting an adventure pack for bikepacking, but just a failed delivery email was all I got. I love my hyper 3.0, best pack ever, even though mice in Moab ate away at my mesh pockets a bit. Nothing beats it. Osprey might be my best option now, hopefully they will just sell their design to someone who has interest in making it.

    Neil... as a bikepacking supplier myself... I have to be careful what I say... a bit. There are a lot of flaky companies around in almost every capacity (bike, bikepacking, accessory, etc). Just look around the forums a bit. I don't mean to sound like I'm calling him flaky. Quite the contrary. However, as a small company I have to do almost everything (website, marketing, email, shipping, bank stuff... that's all before sewing & development, let alone going for a ride). My comment was meant more as sympathy/empathy than anything.

    Myself... I've spent the last week fighting a glitch in building a website and not sewing. Sadly, I still don't have a 'real' internet presence outside of Facebook/Etsy (look for SpoK Werks) and people who know me. In any case... if you're in Europe (the Euro/Dollar thing is a bit price prohibitive) I'd be happy to make something for you. I will say though, my feeling is that Porcelain Rocket is my example for how I want to be in a couple of years. Good, affordable, responsive and fun.

    Good luck with Wingnut.. They really have/had some interesting ideas. In fact, the new Inov8 running packs have a similar bladder and design.

    How do these type of packs (low rider) work with the large seat packs like the Revelate bags? Does the pack hang to low and get in the way with each other or is there enough room? Thanks

    What happened to Wingnut packs?

    Wingnut packs are totally adjustable for height. It you had it low enough to interfere with a seat bag, it would hang up on the back of saddle if the seat bag was not there.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I've used both together and had no interference issues.

    Got an update on my pack. It's in the build process and should be done in a week or so.

    I'm cool with waiting as long as I know it's workin its way to me.

    Are there any other packs that have a similar design to the WN Adventure Pack? I like the having the weight down low like a hybrid backpack/fannypack.

    Mountainsmith's lumbar packs paired with their Strappettes carry similarly to the Wingnuts.

    +1 thanks.

    I also found the Zimmerbuilt Pack which looks nice.
