Bikepacking and cycle touring bags: our design ethos
Our bikepacking bags are innovative, lightweight and durable using the most advanced technical fabrics and expert construction. We make them at our small factory on the edge of the Peak District.
Our X11 fabric has a 100% organic cotton face and is climate neutral: made from plant-based and recycled materials and manufactured in factories that only use green energy.
Our British made bikepacking range is backed up by our 25 year Alpine Bond and our team of skilled and dedicated seamsters offer full custom bikepacking bags to make your bikepacking rig as individual as you are.
For bulky, lightweight items like sleeping bags and down jackets
Ideal for carrying tubes and tools on day rides or large items like tents on longer trips
For heavier items and spares without affecting handling or balance
Water bottles, food and snacks, phones and electricals go here
