Bikepacking

Carradice is the original bikepacking company, making touring saddlebags from 1930 onwards.  We've taken our time getting into the new wave of bikepacking but here it is!  In developing our specific bikepacking range, we identified areas where we thought we could add something extra.

Visibility - Bike packers are often out early and back late when the light is not great.  It makes sense to maximise visibility with 3M reflector.  

Sustainability - We like to do our bit for the planet by making bags that can, with a little care, last a lifetime.  We have also incorporated upcycled inner tubes in the bag designs to grip and protect the frame.

Easy Access - A major gripe for large seatpack users, is the extra time taken to fit bags with the straps and tensioning needed.  We have developed our own bikepacking support allowing you to mount and demount the bag, one handed,  in seconds.  It also gives a rock solid anchor point which virtually eliminates sway, even when you're out of the saddle.

All the bags in our Bikepacking range are hand-crafted in our workshop in Nelson, Lancashire.
