This is a pretty straightforward seatpack that securely straps in place around your saddle rails and seatpost with easy-to-use Velcro fastenings. Our medium sized version (£14.99) swallows up a spare inner tube, multi-tool, puncture repair kit, tyre levers and even an 18cm mini-pump without much trouble – in other words, all the gubbins you’re likely to need to keep you on the road.

It’s not waterproof but the tough fabric keeps dirt and most road spray out while a rubber LED mount and plenty of reflective material help ensure you’re seen at night. It’s available in black/red, black/blue and black/grey colour options, and also available in small (£12.99) and large (£16.99) versions.

The Topeak ones are are cheaper and are top quality - I doubt f the Altura has anything better to offer.
