Restrap, the UK-based cycling portage company, has just updated their custom frame bags. Their full-frame bag comes standard with one (right side/drive side) large compartment with an internal velcro divider (optional) and a long slender document pocket (left side/non-drive side). Each bag is made with YKK zips, textured nylon outer, and VX21 fabrics. Included in all sizes is a slot for camelback/dynamo positioned on the top of the bag. Each bag is finished with Restrap’s classic label (PU leather/vegan-friendly).

While Restrap markets their new Adventure Musette as an accessory bag for bicycle touring, we can’t help but note that packable bags like this reduce paper and plastic bag use. When they’re this small, you can stuff them anywhere. These 70g bags are made in the UK, come in three colors (safety orange, olive drab, and black) and are available for ordering at Restrap for $37.49.
CHPT3 and Restrap have pulled together a collaboration, featuring CHPT3’s Devesa pattern, inspired by the bark of the trees in Girona. These bags feature monotone patterning with a bright orange label. Three Restrap products, the Canister Bag, Tool Roll, and classic Musette Bag, are screen printed by hand and laser cut in-house.

For almost two years, Restrap has been developing their new Adventure Race Range with their sponsored athletes. This lineup consists of one “on-body”, a musette, and four “on-the-bike” products including the Race Top Tube, Race Frame Bag, Race Saddle Bag, and Race Aero Bar Bag.
These bags were built with the highest quality, lightweight materials, from CNC/laser cutting techniques, and the entire lineup weighs less than 1kg in total. See the full lineup at Restrap.
-X21 waterproof materials
-210 denier nylon
Restrap has completed the second run of polka dot edition bikepacking bags, including their Canister, Top Tube, and Saddle Pack. The entire range is fabricated with the use of CNC fabric and laser cutting, alongside Restrap’s new printing techniques for crisper patterns. These bags use used milspec Hypalon, 1000D Cordura, YKK zippers, and magnetic fittings, all made in the UK. Check out the individual bags below.
For those wanting a little bit more room than a traditional saddle bag, but not wanting to go to a full-size saddle pack from their bikepacking equipment, check out Restrap’s new Saddle Pack. This lightweight 4-liter, waterproof saddle pack is made in the UK of VX21, is Nylon-lined, with taped seams, it has a roll-top closure, utilizes magnetic fittings, and unique magnetic compression strap. This allows for easy and reliable closure. The Saddle Pack is large enough for tools, a jacket, and food, it’s perfect for day rides or lightweight bikepacking.

As far as innovative randonneuring bag designs without the need for a decalleur, I’d say Restrap is onto something here with their Rando Bag.
There have been a few examples of a complete water bottle and cage interface redesign over the years. UK-based Restrap throws their cap into the ring with these Mag bottles. They’re designed to work with standard bottle mounts, yet offer an easy-on, easy-off attachment thanks to magnets. These are especially helpful while using half frame bags. See more at Restrap.
By using a base backpack with a series of attachments for other needs, the Restrap Unite expands in both size and versatility with a few simple clicks. Mix and match various attachments with three color options for the base bag. All bags are made in Yorkshire. See more at Restrap.
It doesn’t take much to get my attention when it comes to camera straps. Never one to shy away from innovative design, I was pretty stoked to see the guys at Restrap develop a new “quick release” for neck and wrist lashes. Through utilizing magnets, their design makes swapping straps between your 35mm rangefinder to DSLR and vice versa, a cinch.
Made in the UK by Restrap and at a damn solid pricepoint too!
