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 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! This little guy's the perfect size for my phone, a bit of lip protection, and the little zipper pocket is just the right size for and bit of cash and ID/credit card. And it fits conveniently in most all jersey pockets. Beats the 'ziplock wallet' for sure! More colors/styles please! I've yet to confirm that in a downpour my phone is completely protected, but it seems pretty safe and chances are I'll have a rain jacket on in that event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Essentials Case I also own the leather version of this case and, while it is beautifully crafted, it's well, leather. Sweat/Rain + Leather = Cracked Worn Out Leather. In all fairness to the leather version, I've had it for over a year, used the heck out of it, and it's still intact and fully functional. It just looks like it's been through a war. This case is exactly the same, but synthetic. I doubt it's waterproof, but it's certainly water resistant. Mine is also the color of police warning tape and I can find it pretty easily in my mess of an office. Both this case and the leather version fit perfectly into a jersey pocket. I fit my wallet and phone in the case (the smaller iphone 7). Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated Classic I have an original leather version but had to stop using it as my phones got bigger, this is slightly larger and fits the newer phone sizes. Internal pockets provide more functionality. Not waterproof, but not advertised that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent backpocket case I have been searching for an affordable protective case to carry my phone and other essentials, e.g. money and licence, while out on bike. This Rapha case is great! It protects my phone, slips easily into my jersey's back pocket and has three compartments to seperate money, cards and phone. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a portable light weight case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for.... EVERYTHING! I have a few of these cases, they are the perfect size for: - flat repair kit - sony rx100 camera - wallet essentials and phone - chapstick and sunscreen - basically anything! They help keep me organized and protect some of my favorite things. Highly highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Gift for Non-Cyclists & Cyclists It's lightweight--yet durable. It drips with Rapha style and is unmistakably a Rapha product. It is inexpensive and a perfect gift for anyone--not just cyclists. The material in interesting--with a unique, pleasing feel. It's a pouch--yup. And it has a thousand and one uses. Whenever I do not want to carry a wallet, this is the item I use for my stuff. Of course, fits perfectly in a jersey pocket, but I find myself using this more off the bike than on the bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits it all in there Fits a ton of stuff. Tube, tool, credit card, patches - no problem. Looks top notch and very functional.The yellow colour is sweet but gets dirty quick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish and Smart Second one of these. The first I use for spare tube, co2 and levers. This one is now my wallet, holding the iPhone 5S, cards and cash. One each side of my Rapha jersey and I'm ready to go. They're soft and light so don't dig into when in a jersey pocket. A great product that looks so stylish and keeps everything tidy.

Hi, the compartment for where the phone is supposed to go waterproof?

Asked by: Zako
Hi, this compartment would protect your phone in a shower, but is not waterproof.
