AERC 50TH ANNIVERSARY CONVENTION IN RENO, NV
New design of top center pocket of pommel pack, EZ access and improved loss prevention.
AERC's 50th Anniversay Convention was so much fun! Bill and I loved meeting so many of you who already have True Grit packs. Sales were brisk and we hope our new customers love their new gear, thank you all very much. We took lots of orders and I will be working hard these next couple months to get them filled. We have a good supply of Slimline Universal Pommel Packs with the Electrolye option in colors Black, Royal, Purple and Red available for immediate shipment. These packs come with the 2 24 ounce True Grit water bottles, a 60cc syringe to dose electrolytes and a 10.5 ounce plastic container to carry your own mix of electrolytes.
In talking with so many of you I discovered that what I think is obvious re attaching the packs to your saddle is not always obvious to everyone else. I plan to make a short video to post on the website / or link to the website to give you tips on how to secure your packs for that great no bounce fit.
Per request from a couple of customers I did a redesign on the top center pocket of the Slimline Universal Pommel pack. The zipper is now on the top of the pocket which allows for easier access while moving down trail and your stuff in the pocket doesn't fall out so easily, yeah!!! I love input from you keep it coming!
Those of you that have the Specialized Aussie Saddle can now order a Slimline Universal, Tenn Pack, or 100 Miler Pommel pack. I have made a pattern just for this saddle with it's unique pommel and it works beautifully, I have one and looooove it. The packs are solid and look great on this saddle. If you wish to order one then message me and let me know the pack is for a SS Aussie, look for an option on the order page for this specific saddle soon. Below is my personal saddle with a Slimline Universal Pommel pack with Electrolyte set up.

Welcome to the True Grit Endurance Outfitters website. We are very excited to take this next BIG step in the growth of the company! Up until now each pack was made one at a time by me and though I love to sew this results in lengthy lead times for you to receive your new gear. As we have begun to outsource assembly on some products we now have the capability have packs in stock and ready for immediate shipment to you. Presently we have in stock the Slimline Universal Pommel Pack with the electrolyte container and syringe option in Black, Royal, Purple, and Red as this is our most requested pack and colors. We also have plenty of True Grit 24 ounce water bottles, 10 ounce plastic electrolyte containers, 60cc syringes for dosing electrolytes, and footman's loops to add attachment points to your saddle. Going forward I will continue to sew packs right here in the USA to fill your orders and we will work to increase our stock on hand as True Grit grows. I have numerous product ideas that I have not fabricated just yet but intend to, like cantle packs that include separate compartments and water bottle holders, expand current pack designs to create a line of gear specifically for the English style endurance saddle, recreate vet hold bags, (it will have a rolling cart option and lots of cool endurance specific design elements), and gear for trail and backcountry riders too. We welcome your comments, questions and ideas. Several of the design features of the packs on this site were suggested by endurance riders who tested the prototype packs. We are excited to take this next big step and look forward to filling your orders with great True Grit gear!
