    Tail pack

    If anyone is thinking about a tail pack for camping or bikepacking, I just saw this PORTLAND DESIGN WORKS BINDLE SEATPOST RACK on the MEC site.
    Seems to have good reviews. Pretty well every review of the normal tail packs I've seen complained about them swaying and sometimes drooping.
    This solves the problem. And it's half the price of the cheapest tailpack I've seen. And MEC's price is quite a bit cheaper that the US price for the rack.
    Ordered one and a dry pack.

    Would be curious to hear how much it bounces up and down. I assume it needs to be well-loaded or pulled up against the bottom of the saddle to sit still.

    Instructions say the straps should be tight before using so you're probably right, needs to be pulled up against the saddle.

    Also, if anyone is looking for a tent, Atmosphere.ca has the Marmot Limelight 2 Person Tent with Footprint at 40% off with another 10% off for signing up for their newsletter. Works out to $172 before taxes. Seems to be around $250 in the US.

    Porcelain Rocket...

    also makes a seat bag that does not sway. However premium product, not cheapest.
