Great fuel pod from ALPKIT
Despite this pod being large enough to (for example) fit a big anker charger along with a small gas canister, my handy alkip kraku and other assorted goodies, you barely even notice it's there! Maybe it's my skinny legs but don't most cyclists have skinny legs?! The build quality is top notch, i've had it out in the rain and despite appkit reminding us that this isn't one of their waterproof ones it stands up to the weather fine! The amount of different positions to choose to attach the straps is great for finding the right spot for keeping the thing tight on your bike - very satisfying when you find that sweet spot! All in all a great product, thanks ALPKIT!
Jolly usefull storage solution.
I've been using one of these for nearly a year now, sitting on the toptube of my Vir Fortis..
Build quality is good, nicely padded inside with a usefully sized glove friendly zipper pull. It also cleans up well under the tap, just as well really as it gets splashed with the Peaks District's finest mud. Its pretty waterproof as well. Webbing straps and velcro tape hold it in place pretty securely, but it can wobble a bit if it isn't tightened in place.
Great for my camera, food, phone, spare gloves and anything else that I might want to access without taking off my Camelbak.
The only downside is that my knees hit it if I'm not carefull.
Fuel Pod Large
The volume and quality are very much as I expected. The 3 velcro straps give you a lot of different positions to fix the pod to your top tube and steerer tube. An extra elastic can also be used to further stabilise the pod, but I don't have any room above the stem so I can't really use that. That might be part of the problem I have with the pod, namely the back of it moves a little sideways and when I'm a climbing standing up the pod hits my knees (actually my knees hit the pod) especially on my singlespeed. No problem for regular riding, nor I guess for fatbikes. The pod is very light and doesn't have any stiffness or structure, so the more you fill it the more this will occur. I'm going to keep on trying to find better ways to attach it to the bike to improve stability. If you're doubting I think the medium pod should be better being smaller. But still a very useful pod that for now is staying on my bike. Oh and the orange is really flashy!
The bag frayed after its first outing due to poor velcro design. When mentioned to Alpkit I was met with an unhelpful staff and no refund or return available. Disappointing when I bought £200 worth of bike bags and was promoting their brand on Instagram. Lost the love for the brand after how this issue was handled.
Chris contacted us as his bag had picked up some cosmetic damage in use. We cannot offer refunds for wear and tear but in this case we did offer a partial refund or alternative straps which were both declined. - Alpkit
