Restrap expands bikepacking bag range for 2017

Three new bikepacking bags from Leeds-based Restrap for 2017

Leeds-based Restrap has added to its range of bikepacking bags for 2017, introducing a top tube bag, stem bag and tech bag.

The company first debuted its CarryEverything range, including a frame bag, seat pack and bar bag, at the  Bespoked handbuilt bicycle show last year. Restrap makes all its bags by hand using largely recycled materials in Yorkshire.

Top tube bags are popular not only with epic distance bikepacking adventures but even shorter adventure rides, providing a useful place to keep food or tools within easy reach. The Restrap Top Tube Bag (£29.99) is made from tough 1000D cordura with a waterproof zipper, adjustable velcro straps to accommodate any size top tube and head tube. Internal mesh pockets keep the contents organised.

The Stem Bag (£29.99) is a good way to keep a water bottle within easy reach, or providing extra water carrying capacity on longer rides. It can also be used to store food, providing a handy snack bag to make it easy to keep eating during a ride. Adjustable velcro straps fits any bike and a draw string closure.
