We have noticed a lot of change in the bikepacking bag business in the past few months. From complicated saddle and handlebar systems to simple yet thoughtful top tube bags. It’s fantastic to see the innovation and creativity behind some of these bags, and it’s great to see some small manufactures get the recognition they deserve after putting in their time. In the past few months we have received 4 new top tube bags that certainly catch the eye. A top tube bag for many is an important part of the bikepacking rig. It is a handy spot to carry your snacks for the long haul, or a simple solution for all your essentials on a day ride. I like a top tube bag where the zipper glides open and closes with one hand and without much effort. The other thing I look for in a top tube bag is stability, a bag I can count on for when the terrain is rough. Becker Design, Bike Bag Dude, Rogue Panda Design, and Switchbag bags are either new to the game of bikepacking or have yet to produce a bikepacking bag, until now. Take a peek at these new top tube bags.
