Lezyne Caddy Sack
7 10

This neat little waterproof pouch from Lezyne makes it easy to keep those essential oddments in the right place.

I hate going out on a ride without my spare kit but I also hate having bulging pockets. It's not a good look, plus there's always the chance that you might lose stuff as you rootle about looking for an energy bar, not to mention the chance of things getting wet. This wee pocket pouch will easily hold a tool plus a spare tube, repair kit and a few other vital bits and bobs. It's sturdily made from tough plasticated fabric and the seams and zip are sealed so unless you take your bike bog-snorkelling on a regular basis, everything should stay nice and dry. The zip pull is nice and chunky too, ideal if you're fumbling for a tool with gloves on.

It's exactly the right shape and size for a jersey pocket and the stiff fabric keeps things in a tidy package rather than a shapeless lump. It's hardly the most vital piece of kit but it's surprisingly useful and more practical than an under seat pack if you have more than one bike.

Verdict

A neat and simple way of keeping things tidy on the road.

A really good idea but it's £13 for a plastic purse, you may as well just be done and get the Rapha one in leather with nice branding for £40.

It's probably a bit worrying too admit that I keep scouring John Lewis for just the right size single zip leather purse to fit the bill....

Pencil case from Poundland, £1.
Solution without a problem, £13.

Worth rummaging in those leather purses and wallet bargain bins you see outside shops. I picked up a jersey pocket sized double zipped leather case holds a tube, levers mini, tool, some folding stuff and a phone in a ziploc bag for £4.

As I said, it's not exactly an essential item (my kit usually lives in a washbag which lurks in whatever pannier/rucksack I'm testing) but it does what it's designed to do and it's pretty much waterproof. Given the number of people who use pencil cases, cheap leather wallets etc I'd say that it does serve a useful function, this solution just happens to be a bit more expensive that some of the others.

Just heard from the chaps at Lezyne who have told us that the Caddy Sack is now £7.99, not £12.99 - we've amended the review above accordingly

Seat pack much nicer. Tiny little Spesh one for mke (but could just have been a Lezyne one), winched up super tight so it doesn't wobble or rattle.

That leaves mobile phone, credit card and house keys for the jersey pocket.

But £8 isn't outrageous, even in the weird world of cycling, where £40 carbon fibre bottle cages are an "essential" purchase...  1

I have a little waterproof 'purse' that Mrs B got somewhere. Can get in my id, cash, key for mini bike lock and mobile at a squeeze. Nice to have stuff in one place and poundland type places do have suitable items.

1 more vote for the seatpack - keeps all that stuff away from your body. And if you've got a Fizik saddle there's no excuse not to get one of these if you ask me: http://bit.ly/c23jEu - unless you go for the slightly larger one, which I wish I'd done on reflection.
