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 5 out of 5 by from I'm glad I purchased this... Surprising how much stuff you can fit in a 11ltr size bag!! My ride to work is a lot easier now thanks to this handy bag. No more sweaty back when I do a few extra miles riding into the snowdonia mountains after work. The only issue I have is that the bag is £22 more from Rapha than the standard apidura 11ltr bag. The xtra £'s must be for the go faster Brevet stripes!! ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A revelation. Rucksack be gone! No one likes riding with an oppressive chunk on your back. But how to carry those vital bits and bobs with you. The back of your Jersey can only hold so much, and panniers? No mate. No. This thing sorts it. And it's capacity is an eye opener. I use it daily for the clothes I need to change into. Jeans. Sweatshirt. Polo. All easily fit in with space to spare for a full size u lock and tools. It's also a great construction, the exterior wet storage rope extends it's capabilities even more and those stripes add that Rapha touch that makes us all come back for more. Brilliant item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adventure unlocked We bought a pair of these for credit card road touring through Ireland on a few overnighters. Not on the first 2 tries though, as they sold out quickly. And I can see why. We loved them so much we purchased the handlebar bags over coffee on the way home from our first trip! And these things look the absolute goods, as you'd expect from Rapha. Detailing, form and function as spot on, and they look so, so good on the bike. At an 11L capacity we had room for night time clothing (jeans, t-shirt, jumper, trainers, spare knicks) toiletries and chargers. We teamed with 8L drybags - it's Ireland after all - and found these easier, with the saddlebag left on the bike. Next trip with the handlebar bags we'll do a multi-night trip with a bit of extra gear. We used them on our road/race bikes and found on an XS compact style road frame for Mrs bike there, the bag sat very close to the rear tyre. It resulted in a little bit of bag sway when climbing and needed a bit of extra tension on the straps compared to my frame. Likely unavoidable for all of this style of saddle bags on such a small sizes frame, but something to consider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer! Has made my daily commute so much better and looks good! No more sweaty back. I combined it with the Rapha Mussete so I can take an Ipad with me and A4 pad around and it's just awesome. Hated wearing a heavy pack every day. This way you just feel free.

Is 11L the max capacity or when extended, is is greater. A range so show the compressed/max capacity would be useful. 

Asked by: RuMaJaMa
The max capacity is at full capability.

With commuting in mind, how easy is the pack to take off when I lock up my bike & put back on on return route?

Asked by: Tokyo Cyclist
Hi, this should be fairly quick as it has 2 buckles that can be easily un-clipped.

Just wondering if this has two clips for lights like the Apidura branded bags. In the photos is seems like the Rapha version only has the one spot for a light, which could make things difficult depending on how much is packed into the bag.

Asked by: Sam15
This model has two light clips, just as the Apidura bag due to being made in collaboration with them

Hi guys. I have a Cervelo S2 aero bike, the seat post is carbon and and accordingly shaped as in all aero road bikes will there be no problem with attaching the Apidura? Cheers.

Asked by: Trynidada
Hi, this will depend on the way your seat is set up. Usually on aero bikes the seat is set up very forward which means you will have extremely limited space for placing an Apidura bag. Should you choose to buy one to see if it fits, we have a 90 days return period for new/unused garments with tags and in saleable condition.

The height of the back is 15cm, does this mean if I have more than 15cm between seat - rear tire I can attach this?

Asked by: pixelplayer
That will be fine.

Hi, I've read one the questions here, someone asked is the pack has any feature that to attach a rear light, and your answer was yes.  But there are a several reviews that people commented there is no feature to attached rear light. Please confirm? 

Asked by: King Kong
The Light attachment points are on the underside of the bag. When rolling to close, they are positioned in the center strip of the bag, reverse to the reflective detailing.
