V2 StraddleBag, $45

(6 customer reviews)



A versatile bag that securely mounts on either side of the top tube and can be opened and closed with one hand. This bag is highly flexible with the Bikepackers Foundry integrated Velcro OneWrap mounting system determining shape and width. The roll-top closure can be left open and used to secure water bottles, bear spray, and other bulky items. Internal stiffener hold the bag in place while still allowing access to frame bag zippers and other closures.  An elastic cord (not shown) connects the bottom of the bag to the downtube and prevents movement. V2 StraddleBag can be use as a single bag or in pairs.

V2 StraddleBags are designed to play nicely with top tube “gas tanks”, handlebar mounted feed bags, and most frame bags. Up to three pairs of bags can be mounted to most bikes, including full suspension rigs.

    This bag is the best! It was a piece of gear I was missing without knowing that I needed it. Riding a medium framed bike I always found that I could not always fit everything I needed in an easily accessible place. When I added the straddlebag to my current setup, it made for a perfect place for my multitool and sunscreen on one side and fit a day’s worth of snacks on the other. It was always super easy to access and kept my candy dry throughout even the worst of Patagonia rain storms.

      Thanks for the review Ainsley! Glad you are enjoying the StraddleBags.

    These bags are a super neat addition to any bikepacking setup, as well as being great for stowing the couple of pieces of gear you need to have with you around town. I’ve been using them for bike locks, spare gloves, keys, cards, phone, emergency snacks, even a coffee! And when you’re out fully loaded, I found them the perfect spot to stow my waterproof gloves, or a buff and a hat – those small extra layers that you really want handy, but that sometimes end up getting lost in bigger bags. For someone on a small frame, this is a great way to expand your bike storage, and keep those few items super handy instead of having to stuff them into a bigger bag, where they end up getting lost (especially after a convenience store stop, when my eyes are bigger than my bike bags, and I end up having to shove food ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE!)

      Thanks for the review Megan, greatly appreciated!

    I have been using a pair of StraddleBags for almost a year now and I use it on my bikepacking bike and my daily rider also. It adds just a little more carrying capacity without adding bulk. It is positioned so it does not interfere when I stand up on the pedals and it also provides easy access to a few key items I carry with me without having to stop to access them. Brilliant Design. One of my favorite bags without a doubt!!!!

    These little straddle bags are so handy 👏 They can hold a lot more than you’d think at first look!! I’ve used them for two months now and find they are very secure . I keep my tools on one side perfect fit closed tightly, and a water bottle, iphone a snack or a buff on the other. Or can hold bearspray and a water bottle securely . Definitely recommend 👍. I use it with my roll top frame bag and it stays flat against the frame . When you aren’t using them they are not in the way at all but you will always find a good use for them even on short rides!!

    I picked up a set of these babies at the last Bikepack Canada Summit. What a great addition to the kit. They are perfect for utilizing dead space up by the head tube.

    I use them for food mostly. They are about the same size as a ZipLock sandwich sized freezer bag, so I use those as a lightweight liner. I usually stuff mine with nuts, cheese, chocolate etc. They are the perfect little snack holders and with the rolltop and fastener system, you can get in and out with one hand.

    When it comes to function, design and workmanship, Guy is the…. well, he’s the guy!!!

    Thanks Steve. I’m actually just the dad, Sara is the real maker. Cheers … Guy

    These bags are great!Way less clutter than a bar type bag. You hardly know their in the bike and add a lot of food storage space. Perfect size for PB&J sandwiches. Great for Bikepack or gravel racing where you want a decent easy access fuel load.
