A revolutionary touring pack

In making a rackless saddle pack for bike touring, Apidura caused a sensation among randonneurs fed up of using unwieldy panniers. Rapha has partnered with the ultra-light packing brand to present a special version of their extremely successful Compact Saddle Pack which, when paired with the Handlebar Pack, will hold enough gear for any lightweight tours into the wilderness. The highly-functional pack straps on to the rear of the saddle with a three-point attachment, lodging tight without restricting pedalling or swaying around, and a roll-top closing system ensures your equipment is well protected. Rapha has added its distinctive Brevet stripes to the pack, one in reflective white and one in hi-vis pink, while all of the webbing and shockcord have reflective yarns woven in for extra visibility, too. A game-changing piece of kit.

Please note that while the body fabric of this pack is waterproof, due to the stitching process used to assemble the product, there is the possibility for water to enter through the seams when exposed to sustained rain. Rapha and Apidura recommend using an internal dry bag for contents that must remain absolutely dry (such as electronics).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy piece of kit Has enough capacity for weekend bike packing trip combined with bar bag. Secure attachment and expands/contracts to suit load. One point of note?- I have 185mm post extension (centre of top tube to centre of saddle rails) the bottom of the bag sits of my seat stay, not to concerned as it is just polishing my Ti frame in that area, but do wonder if this 'hot spot' will wear though on the bag and I'd be taking it off a carbon frame with the same clash condition.. Good bit of kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bag for all seasons A Christmas present. Easy to fit, light weight. Best to fit clothing in dry bags. Room to store clothing as the temp. warms up

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spacious It fits easily and quickly on and off. Plenty of length in the straps, I tied knots to shorten them. Did a 400k (24hr) ride last weekend and it had tempting amounts of room for extra clothing. I have my saddle set back a little on the seatpost so the backs of my thighs were cushioning against the bag, not unpleasant but it did set up a swinging motion especially uphill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roomy and Light This bag has a lot of room when you want it. It has a roll closure system, so you can roll it big or small depending on how much is inside. Well designed. The only downside is that there is no room left for a rear tail light. I wish they had made a loop on the bag for attaching a tail light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features ! Just arriving from Mont Ventoux Tour de France stage supporting Chris Froome. Apidura Rapha saddle pack is absolutely perfect space for many riding accessories. Wearing backpack is not comfortable for me, especially for climbing. Thank you Rapha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag I used this bag when cycling to the local climbing crag and it easily held my harness, climbing shoes and belay device! It was very easy to use and mounts securely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So versatile. Great quality bag, and easy to strap on to the seat. I use it to commute to work everyday. The roll up feature means you can make the pack as big or as small as you like. When the pack is big, you have to be careful to pack it so that its balanced as the nose end, which sits on the seat post, can slip just a little. But for the most part an excellent bag.
