Essentials Case

Ideal for training and social rides and perfect storage for vital cycling tools and valuables. Made from a robust leather, the case fits comfortably into a jersey pocket, and is finished with bound seams to ensure your gear stays as dry as possible. (Please note that the case is not waterproof.)

Inside, the case has a small sleeve pocket for carrying a credit card, while the main compartment is large enough to carry a spare inner tube, tyre levers, a gas cylinder, as well as an average-sized multi-tool or mobile phone. The case fits the iPhone 5 and 6, but not the iPhone 6+.

"Actually the other day Simon [Mottram, Rapha co-founder] sent me this leather wallet to put my phone and money in. I always just took a plastic bag, but now Rapha have made this, I will never go for a ride without it. "

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says on the tin...with style Bought a few weeks ago to keep my phone dry (broke my waterproof Xperia in a crash and replaced it with a non waterproof iPhone SE so I needed something) It fits my phone, car key, cycling Ireland license, cards and cash with room to spare and fits snugly in my jersey pocket. Have been rained on a couple of times, not heavy, but everything stayed dry. Really impressed with the quality too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it for whatever Been using this for about a week now as my wallet. This serves as a wallet, and more. There's an internal slot for my coins, that makes me a happy camper. Can't complain about the quality as it's top notch. I reckon it would last me for quite some time.

Hi, I have an older data print essentials case that fits my phone perfectly, but is in need of an upgrade. Has essentials case sizing remained the same?

Asked by: woody1402

Is it waterproof during prolonged rain/showers?

Asked by: perry08
Hi, the Essentials Case is not waterproof and the leather needs to be treated with leather balm occasionally, particularly after having been exposed to water.

Will this thing fit my iPhone 6 plus? I know that the case is approximately 1 cm too short for the iPhone 6 plus, but maybe it can be stretched a little. Has anyone tried that? If not, then it would be nice if Rapha could make a bit longer version.

Asked by: gymsko
Hi, as per the product details the case fits the iPhone 5 and 6, but not the iPhone 6+.
