You headed out in bright sunshine, the forecast look great, but grey clouds have gathered and those raindrops are starting to fall – is the weather really going to put a downer on your two-wheeled excursion?

Light, tough, and compact; the Gnaro provides waterproof and accessible storage space between your handlebars.

Dual-coated waterproof fabric, welded seams, and roll-top closure keep your stuff dry. Dual-entry points help you find what you’re looking for, and a waterproof zipped accessory pocket is ideal for keys, gels, or a few vital tools. Bungee webbing adds extra stashing options.

A 3-point handlebar attachment system keeps the Gnaro solid on your handlebars on even the most challenging terrain. 

A front-facing strap gives you the option to attach extra lighting or reflectors.

We recommend storing valuables in an additional drybag for extra protection.

Very useful bar bag

At last, a small handlebar bag for carrying the essentials for a ride, I rarely use a camalbak these days and this size of bar bag is ideal for holding riding kit, camera, snacks, jacket etc. Very secure on the bars and no movement when bouncing over rough terrain, the fully waterproof exterior is a nice touch for the winter months.

Very well made and a good price, top marks alpkit!.

Great bag!

easy to attach securely, kept the rain out and the bungee cord is great for quickly attaching things like food or a jacket while on the fly. fits really well on my road bike handle bars.

Nice bag, feels unfinished in places

A great bar bag. The straps and roll closures work well, but the zip pocket on the front seems a little small and 'unfinished'. The material isn't stitched or sealed on some edges on the zip which has already started catching on the zip itself. Personally the front pocket isn't needed, its adding a weak point where water can get in while a minimal gain in storage space is added.

To add to my previous review

I took this bag on a bikepacking trip around Taiwan. The bag Worked brilliantly. I kept all my spares and tools in it, had my first-aid kit as well as a few miscellaneous items like arm warmers. You can fit a surprising amount of stuff in it.

The bag works as designed and kept everything perfectly dry.
The front pocket was just used as tool storage and never really used for much. Never even had to open it.

I found the handlebar straps would slowly loosen as i was riding (on roads). This meant that i would regularly tighten them many times per ride. However it never really posed an issue and it took less than a second to tighten them. Gave me something extra to do in the long hours on the bike!

Apart from the straps coming loose, the bag is pretty great as a smaller Bar bag. And all i said in my original review still stands

Great little bag

This bag is gorgeous. When the bag is stuffed full I can only fit cash or card in front pocket. More Aero than bigger bags. Looks very cool between the drops.

Good with a few minor niggles

I was looking for a small bag to fit to the bars. I have a harness and dry bag setup but that's only really suitable for larger loads like sleeping bag and mat, once you drop down below that sort of volume there's little available.

I've fitted this to a set of Jones Loop bars by rotating the bag forward by 90deg and using the "upper" two straps on the front loop with the "lower" strap around the stem so that the bag is slung underneath the bars. This doesn't interfere with the loop bag I also have in place.

As another reviewer noted the straps have a tendency to loosen, with my setup it is quite awkward to get to the strap tail to pull them tight again. It would be better if the straps were Velcro or a rougher, less slippy, webbing.

The bag is big enough to hold a couple of OS 1:25k maps; a lightweight waterproof jacket; a sleeping mat; a pole for my tarp and a couple of dehydrated meal pouches. In a couple of upcoming events it will be used for the "wet" part of my bivy setup: tarp; bivy bag; etc. plus trail clothes.

I've no need for the external elasticated strap and the pocket is not much use in the configuration I use it.

It's quite heavy for the volume provided, I notice that there is now the Tarmac UL series of bags, this would be a useful option for this bag.

All in all it's a handy bag and doesn't encourage you to put masses of kit up front on the bike.

Perfect for a day day on the trails

This little bag is perfect for a day on the trails. I can throw a pack-away jacket, tools, snacks and any other bits I may need with no struggle. The webbing has also proven itself to be useful when I needed to attach another dry bag.
The only gripe I have is that the straps do come loose after a while on the bumpy trails. It doesn't come so loose that its going to fall off, it just doesn't stay as tight as I would like. But don't let this put you off- its a great bag that I recommend buying

Nice little Bag, could do with some improvements

Overall this is a great little bag, it does the job. Typically any handlebar bags you'll see aren't waterproof, and the ones that are, are big and very expensive. This is a nicely sized bag, fits perfectly on standard drop bars. It'l fit go surprising number of T-shirts and clothes, or its perfect for a first aid kit. Its also extremely rugged, i would say almost to its own detriment, but you can be sure it will last a long time.

And this is my problem. Its almost too rugged. Its very heavy, its almost as heavy as my waterproof saddle bag (9L). The roll top ends could be a lot smaller i think. I would be happier if they were the same size/material as alpkit's standard dry bags.
The storm flap is a little too tight, the webbing seems to get in the way more than it is useful, and the construction seems just very slightly rough around the edges.

None of these things are deal breakers, but they add up. Its a good bag and i can see myself using it, but theres a lot of niggles that i have with it. Hopefully they might be fixed sometime down the road
