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 Replace your tool roll with this After riding with a tool roll for a season, I found my back to have pain points from the clumsiness and bulkiness of tools inside a roll against my back. I found this case, and many others similar to this one online and thought this would help spread out the area where tools lay against my back instead of the bulky roll squeezed into the back pocket. As a Rapha customer, I knew the quality to expect when I decided to pull the trigger and order this. I was not disappointed. This piece is very well made, the ultramarine blue color is true to color on the website and looks awesome, fits all the tools I had in my roll, and most importantly this spreads the tools out over your back instead of clumping them in a roll. In addition, this is not a large case. It easily fits in your back pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't leave home without it! After my plastic pouch I used finally gave, I found the essentials case. Will easily fit a iPhone 6, and other items traditionally taken on a ride. Great quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A most useful item on and off the bike At the time of purchase I was not too sure just how useful this pouch would prove to be; was it going to serve a practical purpose when riding, or end up in a drawer somewhere provoking the question "Why ever did I buy this?" After a relatively short time, however, the question was rather "How did I manage without it?" Its small size is deceptive. Measuring only 15x9 cms this case made of high quality soft leather is slim enough even when full to slip easily into the rear pocket of any cycling jersey. Yet it has room for carrying items such as keys, cash cards or banknotes (in an internal zipped pocket), a pen, knife, small mobile phone or even cycling mitts when not in use. For added security the 20mm zip ring-pull can be clipped into a lanyard attached to a belt loop or sewn into the jersey pocket. A most welcome item, manufactured from fine materials and to the high standard of workmanship we have come to expect from Rapha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect Bought this for my husband to help him keep track of his cards, keys, phone, small change etc. He now brings it everywhere, either in his jersey pocket or off the bike in jacket pocket. Great size and very handsome piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i just lost mine and am purchasing it again I purchased this case a few months ago to use as a wallet for my phone/cards, and it just fell out of my jeans pocket while riding today (luckily without the phone in it) and is gone for good. I can't even wait a full day to order another one. The leather is amazing quality, and the case nicely fits my iphone 7, cash, and cards with room to spare. I only wish the card pocket was tighter -- I was using a separate tiny gift card pouch to make sure my cards stayed organized and didn't fall out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little of luxury in your pocket Long gone are the zip bags, I keep a copy of my drivers licence, my health card and a small first aids... I put money and the phone when I leave and its perfect. Keys are safe and I don't fear that they will be making a hole in my jersey. This was something I thought was not needed, a bit of a luxury, but I love the leather, construction and the feel of the case. Glad I got it and would have to replace it if I lost it. The only complain is that it a bit heavy, but I knew that from the start (leather vs the lighter version that Rapha has)

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+.
