12 litre welded seatpack for weatherproof bikepacking
Fiana 12l highly water resistant seatpack
We do rain rather well here in the UK so it is no surprise we have developed a penchant for products designed for UK specific conditions. Our Fiana seat pack meets this criteria. Durable, sturdy and water resistant, Fiana isn't going to be bothered by miles of muddy bridleway or a day of spring showers.
The benefits of a rackless luggage system speak for themselves: there is minimal weight penalty, you don't need a bike designed for load carrying and it encourages you to travel light and free.
Fiana has a capacity of 12 litres and will hold a lightweight down sleeping bag (like our PipeDream 400) and Filo down jacket with ease. Stuff in some additional clothing, strap it all down and forget it for the rest of the day.
Fiana uses a water resistant TPU fabric and a welded seam construction method to create a bag that is showerproof and resistant to the wear and tear of life on the road. The TPU coated fabric is robust and water resistant, a thin plastic endoskeleton is built into the underside of the bag extending along the seatpost providing shape and structure to improve stability and make it easier to pack. The contact points between the seatpack and the saddle are reinforced with a Hypalon panel. This protects against abrasion and provides extra grip to help prevent sway.
Attachment is simple and does not require tools. 2 wide nylon webbing straps wrap around the seatpost and a lateral strap threads under the seatstays. The angle of the seatstay straps are optimally designed to pull the bag into the sweet spot in the base of your saddle. This is secured to the base of the bag by Duraflex S.J. buckles with CamLok® to provide enhanced stability and prevent slippage due to vibrations and wet straps, especially when your Fiana is not fully stuffed.
A single roll-top closure provides access to your contents while the bag is attached to your bike. When closed up this is cinched down with directional straps that helps pull in the weight to your centre of gravity. Even though Fiana is very rainproof we always advise using an additional dry bag as extra insurance for items that simply must stay dry - or else - such as electronic gadgets or your survival critical sleeping bag.
On the top of the pack there is an external zipped mesh pocket. This is designed to accommodate a GPS tracker (not included) so people can find you if you get lost.
A bungee cord accessory strap holds on to your additional items, items that you hadn't figured on carrying, hadn't left space for or items you want to have quick access to such as flip flops. Finally an additional Hypalon tab on the rear of the bag can be used to attach rear safety light.

Another great product from Alpkit
I already had the Analoko, but needed a bit more storage for longer days on the bike. This range is really well made from a very hardwearing and waterproof fabric. It is really secure and there is hardly any sway regardless of how the bag is packed. The only small issue I've had is trying to release all of the air when rolling the bag shut. This was easily fixed by taping a small piece of flexible pipe inside the bag to release the air. Unless it gets submerged in water the contents will still remain dry. Maybe a small resealable air release valve could be added to the MK2?
Great pack for traditional touring bike, would be nice to see some road bike compatability added
Great pack, sits snug and the fabric is really smart.
My only greiveance is that the buckles that attach to the seat rails are too big and bulky to go through any of my road saddles (Selle Italia SLR, Astute). So I can't use the pack for commuting by road bike, which is partly why I bought. Perhaps size of buckles could be listed on the spec?
Would be nice to have straps long enough for slightly bigger/ aero shape seat posts too on future versions.
Bought on sale for £56. Amazing value, would highly reccomend this product, just make sure you have plenty of saddle rail clearance.
My Airlok tapered dry bag goes really nicely inside for added waterproofness and organisation too!
