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 is finished with a “Bon Courage” motto. The case fits the iPhone 5 and 6, but not the iPhone 6+.

For 2015, also available with a data print print, a graphical representation of performance data collected from a single pro rider, which is a core design component of the latest Pro Team collection.

"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 4 out of 5 by from Nice and slim Nice sized case to slip into the rear jersey pockets, holds phone, ID, and cash/credit cards for when you're out on a ride. Looks nice as well when you stop in for morning coffee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from larger than before my old one has a zip that is broke, and the phone's got a bit bigger, and so did the essentials case, only minor point is the zipper that is in messing, which means that it corrodes under the sweat influences, winter as well as summer

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average piece of kit I admit it - I got carried away here and bought something that there was absolutely no need to buy. Why I didn't save myself £50 (in postage), and stick to my traditional freezer bag with my stuff in it, placed in my back pocket - I will never know. Be sensible - there is no need for you to buy this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential! I bought this in the data print style after seeing my younger brother using his for a month or so. It's large enough to accommodate an iPhone 6 ( not the 6 plus) together with cash, credit cards and loose change. You'd struggle to fit an inner tube in here and a mobile phone but a gas canister would be fine. I find myself using it off the bike too. Friends poke fun at my "purse" but I think I'm stylish/manly enough to carry the look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product. I bought this as I was going on a sportive and thought it would nice to have in my jersey pocket. It's nicely made with a good quality zip and leather. I couldn't get everything in like it says on the Rapha website. All I could fit was my phone, debit card and a spare inner tube ( just about ) defiantly no room for a gas cylinder or tyre levers. Besides all that I'm pleased I purchased it and look forward to using it again soon.

Will the leather dye bleed when wet from sweat/rain?

Asked by: Lanterne Booze
The dye is set and cured and will not leak from exposure to sweat and rain.
