The Anatomy of Bikepacking

Bikepacking has been around as long as people have been riding bikes. Its recent popularity is inextricably linked to the explosion of new lightweight equipment.

We have been at the leading edge of lightweight bikepacking since 2008, innovating ultralight and durable custom bikepacking bags to carry everything you need, no matter the journey, no matter the destination. We think we know something about it.

What ever bike you ride, however far you want to travel, our bike packing bags are designed to carry what you need and keep your riding fun. Our rackless systems utilise all of those little nooks and crannies around your bike.Check out our custom pages to create your unique rig.

Custom frame bags for bikepacking

Designed by us. Made by us. Used by us.

Inspired by our adventures on two wheels, we’ve been designing and making bikepacking bags in our Nottingham based factory since 2008; testing them on local and not-so-local terrain.

We innovate and create ultralight and durable bikepacking bags to carry everything you need, no matter the journey, no matter the destination.

We believe in what we do: our UK made adventure kit is backed up by a 25 Year Alpine Bond Warranty.

Simplicity by Design

We've been making custom bike packing bags in our own factory since 2008. Designed by us, used by us, and made by us.

Material and Construction

Lightweight, strong and durable, we use premium materials such as VX21, CORDURA®, VELCRO® and water resistant YKK® zippers.

We understand Bikepacking

Our relationship with bikepacking began in 2008 when we start developing lightweight bike luggage for the challenging Iditarod International race.

Alpine Bond

We have confidence in what we make and give all of our UK made bike luggage a 25 Year Alpine Bond Warranty.


Put your brakes on, grab something cold, sit back and enjoy the flow.
