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 is finished with a “Bon Courage” motto. The case fits the iPhone 5 and 6, but not the iPhone 6+.

For 2015, also available with a data print print, a graphical representation of performance data collected from a single pro rider, which is a core design component of the latest Pro Team collection.

"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 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 4 out of 5 by from Nice and slim Nice sized case to slip into the rear jersey pockets, holds phone, ID, and cash/credit cards for when you're out on a ride. Looks nice as well when you stop in for morning coffee.

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.

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.
