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 Should have bought sooner This replaced a zip lock bag and while yes, the zip lock kept things dry, they were not organized. And lets face it, pulling out a zip lock bag from you kit somewhat defeats the purpose of wearing nice kit. At any rate, should have bought this a lot sooner as others have commented.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Essential! This case is perfectly sized to carry all my essential items on the road. I can easily carry a tube. levers, multi-tool, cash, cards, and more. The smooth leather exterior helps with inserting and removing the case from your jersey pocket. The interior pockets are a bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality; perfect size I bought the essentials case to replace a saddle bag. I may be in the minority to do this, but the case works perfectly and isn't burdensome at all when in a jersey pocket. I am sure this case is also perfect for other essentials, except phablets. My Plus-sized iPhone doesn't fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the weight I was unsure if I should pack more weight but the convenience of putting a lot of essentials I have to have but don't need while riding in one place makes this a great option. Instead of a lot of stuff flopping around, this is better and looks better than my ratty zip locks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimalistic After deciding to ditch the typical sadle bag I bought this essential case and I haven't looked back. I'm very satisfied. Quality work Rapha! Thank you with helping me keep the race esthetic on my road bike.

Is it waterproof during prolonged rain/showers?

Asked by: perry8
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+.
