Strawfoot Travel Kit

Bags upon bags. When I travel, I have at least four bags inside my duffel and when I spend long weeks on the road, it keeps me sane. I’ve always been a fan of Strawfoot bags and these new travels bags fit the bill in terms of mobile organization. Use them for electronics, tools or even as an oversized Dopp bag.

Big x Top’s Mini Saddle Bag
BigxTop_01

In the winter months, sometimes it’s hard to carry everything you need for a long-distance ride in just a jersey pocket. Oftentimes you’ll need a hardshell, a baselayer, arm or leg warmers and warm gloves. Sure you can put all that on and be fine, but as the day goes on and it gets warmer, you’ll shed a few layers. That’s why I like bags like Big x Top’s Mini Saddle Bag. It isn’t an all-out touring bag, but it offers some easy-to-access extra space for your gear.

Blackburn’s New Expandable Outpost Frame Bag
outpost-frame-bag-feature-open

The detail-minded readers of the site might have picked up on this bag last year in my initial review of the Niner RLT9 steel ‘cross bike. The photoset featured the newly designed expandable Outpost frame bag from Blackburn. Now, there are tons of options for bikepacking frame bags out there, but the Outpost had a few details that caught my attention. For one, there’s a water bladder port, an easy to set up divider insert, straps to secure the bag to your frame and a drop-down expansion flap for when you need every square inch. Now, a production frame bag won’t fit your bike as well as a custom one, but the Outpost has enough straps to at least secure it. See more details at Blackburn!

Brooks Metropolitan Collection

As a brand, Brooks has really grown from just making saddles by hand in England. While they continue their British handmade saddle heritage, they’ve also introduced a number of handy bags, for both on and off the bike use. Their latest additions being the Mott Weekender duffel and the Rivington Rucksack. As a part of Brooks’ new Metropolitan collection, these two bags are handmade in Italy and as expected, carry a stout pricetag. Stout, but well worth it in my opinon anyway. See more at Brooks England.
