Bikepacking Bags and Rackless Luggage since 2008

Inspired by our own 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





Limited Edition wax cotton bike luggage

A limited edition run featuring some of our best selling bike luggage in wet waxed cotton, a classic, natural material. Visually they ooze class, and the complete set (available as a bundle) is going to turn a few heads as you pull up for a coffee stop. Waxed cotton is a well traditional material with some great qualities. It was used extensively for technical applications between the 20s to 50s for anything from waterproof jackets to sailcloth. It may have been pushed aside by higher tech fabrics, but it still has a place for those who appreciate its classic looks and soft touch.
