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 Very pleased Love it. Was worried it wouldn't fit an iPhone 7 but it fits fine even with a case on it. Color is more burgundy than purple and will wear to a great patina.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The definitive Essentials case This is my Third leather essentials case, I bought a black one 2 years ago, I bought a navy blue in Petra Majorca last year and bought this one recently, it's not that I like these cases, I love these cases, they fit perfectly in a jersey pocket and I keep everything I need to carry when Iam on my bike, I wouldn't leave the house without it, when you buy one you'll wonder what you ever did without it, I've even convinced 2 of my club mates to get one also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential! I bought this in the data print style after seeing my younger brother using his for a month or so. It's large enough to accommodate an iPhone 6 ( not the 6 plus) together with cash, credit cards and loose change. You'd struggle to fit an inner tube in here and a mobile phone but a gas canister would be fine. I find myself using it off the bike too. Friends poke fun at my "purse" but I think I'm stylish/manly enough to carry the look.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average piece of kit I admit it - I got carried away here and bought something that there was absolutely no need to buy. Why I didn't save myself £50 (in postage), and stick to my traditional freezer bag with my stuff in it, placed in my back pocket - I will never know. Be sensible - there is no need for you to buy this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tidiness A nice pics, good quality, fit perfect in the pocket. I would be nice if it could fit a iPhone 6S hope Rapha make a new version soon.

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 Does what it's supposed to - and that very well! I was using a "Bakpocket" until quite recently. It also does what it's supposed to do, but the Rapha Essentials Case does it better. With the phones getting bigger, I had a bit of an issue packing my iPhone 6s with Apple leather cover through the opening slit in the Bakpocket, since it does not really open all the way. It's harder to get out for a quick photo or SMS as well. I find this to be much easier with the Essentials Case and the all-around zipper. I also like the fact that it has a side pocket for the phone and one with a zipper for the change. All the things I recently had in my Bakpocket just fit a little bit better - and the fact that the Essentials Case is made out of leather gives it a little bit more of a stylish advantage. Well done, Rapha! PS: I still use the Bakpocket for my cleat covers and multitool.

Is it waterproof during prolonged rain/showers?

Asked by: per08
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+.
