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).
