Lightweight Essentials Case to keep everything in its right place

Save fumbling around in your back pockets when out riding with the Rapha Lightweight Essentials Case, a durable and quick-drying nylon version of the original leather Essentials Case.

The case has a ‘slide’ access pocket for safe storage of a smart phone, and further space for vital cycling tools and valuables. 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+.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stylish, functional, too small Looks good, I was taken by the idea of a stylish little pouch to hold my goodies. The fabric is robust and the inner divider & zip pocket keep money & cards separate. It could do with being larger. One 700x25 inner tube straight from the box, so as small as it can be packed, and a set of tyre levers leaves little room for anything else bar a credit card. Certainly no room for a phone or anything other than the most basic of tools; mine includes a chain tool and won't fit. Other reviews seem happy with the size so maybe I need to buy skinnier tyres and more expensive tubes...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Extravagance An excellent addition to my ride kit. This lightweight case is perfect for the phone (in my case an iPhone 5S), credit card/cash, garage door opener. I'm not using it for tube/levers/CO2 but it will fit them in (just - its a squeeze). The construction is second-to-none with a soft feel to the case and well engineered zipper. There's little likelihood of the zip snagging your precious Rapha jersey going in/out of the pocket. Best thing is that the case dimensions fit perfectly (of course) in the Rapha Core Jersey pocket. Very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Case, Heavyweight Quality This is my go-to case for both short and long rides. It fits my iPhone6, cards, and cash needed for any situation. Whether you pop into a shop for a post-ride coffee or stop to buy more tubes after several flats, you can't help smiling at the message inside and the sheer beauty of such a practical item. Getting compliments from others and exclamations of "oh I need that, where did you get it?" makes it even more fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a long day in the saddle I bought this as a late birthday present to myself in advance of a long weekend ride through the UK & France. Whilst my iPhone 5c, cards, notes & a few coins fitted well, space was limited if I tried to cram in a sore tube, inflator, levers etc. I was able to squeeze in an Anker external battery & lead to extend phone battery & that's about it. In summary, I would say this is an excellent place to keep valuables during a ride, but pair with a saddle bag or similar for your tools & spares.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's just like a small zip up case You have two choices from Rapha; the expensive leather case or the fabric version, I chose the latter (primarily because of cost if i'm honest). Initially I was a bit underwhelmed ...I forgot I was just buying a zip up case!, it doesn't come in a fancy presentation box and has minimal external Rapha branding - a plus point in my opinion. My phone fits perfectly and I can easily store a few cards and coins too - for me, for this purpose, it's great and it's simplicity has grown on me. I don't try and stuff tubes, levers or CO2, they go in my saddle bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from clean lines compact, but I found I could get Id cash spare tube and gas and tire levers in but no phone, or ditch the gas and then the phone fitted in

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I bought this a few weeks ago and it's been in constant use since then fits snugly in my cycle jersey pocket :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Practical I had been looking for something to replace the clear plastic wallet I used to carry my "cake" money, and valuables in when cycling..and I found the perfect thing. This comfortably holds my phone, money, cards and valuables, it looks stylish and is practical. It fits perfectly in my back pocket. I wouldn't put inner tubes or multi tools in this, but for what I want it for it is just the job. The Nylon material is easy to clean and the zip fastener makes it easy to open.
