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. "
Mark Cavendish on GQ.com »

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to carry on the ride I think this is my fifth one of these, they are great for holding your essentials on a ride. The leather holds well, as does the zip, even out in the wet. Rapha may need to think about the size now that phones are getting bigger, I can still get an iphone7 in though, but I wouldn't get the plus in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and Stylish This is my third essentials case and I use them regularly on my rides to carry my phone, credit card and some case. I bought this third one to use as my everyday wallet. The size is perfect for my phone and all the essentials that I need to carry around with me. The all black design is elegant and understated.

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 Love this case Used the case on a few rides and it's great. It's lightweight enough for the longer rides. I would definitely recommend this product.

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
Hi, current Essentials Cases are exactly the same size as previous iterations.

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+.
