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 Love this perfect little leather case I have had the black leather essentials case for about 4 years now and it still looks great. It has gotten wet from rain and sweat, and has even been used for nights out when I need a smaller wallet. I bought it recently in the raspberry colour just because.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I had been using a plastic sandwich bag to store my phone, cards and cash, and had been eyeing of the essentials case as an upgrade. It was a good choice. I have found the essentials case to be practical item I use on and off the bike. Ample storage for phone, cards, cash, keys and a zip pocket for change. Appears to tolerate damp conditions, I haven't been caught in a down pour yet.

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?

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+.
