Fuel Pod straps securely to your frames top tube and gobbles up the things you need to access whilst riding: snacks, gadgets, maybe even a compass if you are going fully trad.
Modern touches such as a YKK Aquaguard zip closure and a glow-in-the-dark zup puller add functionality, and a front facing cable port makes it easy to plug in batteries to charge your GPS or power your lights.

Wax cotton was used as a performance outdoor fabric for years before all our modern textiles were invented. Innovation is great but sometimes it pays to look back and see what has worked over the years… especially if you want to do it in style. - Hebe
Product Care Information
Caring for your gear is all part of the adventure. This bag is made from wet waxed cotton, you will need to rewax your bag every so often so that it maintains its water resistance. We recommend rewaxing every 12 months, or sooner if you notice your bag isn’t repelling water as it should.
First, make sure your pack is clean. If it isn’t clean just sponge it down with cold water and brush it lightly to remove dirt or grit. If it’s really dirty (these things happen!) hand wash it in cold water with Nikwax Tech wash. Don’t dry clean or wash your waxed cotton pack.
Now your bag is clean…
Spray Nikwax Wax Cotton Proof onto the outer of the bag, paying close attention to the seams and area s of high wear. The waterproofing will look opaque and white, don’t worry - it will dry clear!
Once you’ve sprayed the bag, rub the cotton proof into the fabric and remove any excess.
Buff the bag.
Let the bag hang dry in a well ventilated area, avoid humid places! It may take a coupld of days to completely dry.
Bob’s your uncle! A rewaxed bag ready for your next adventure!
If you don’t fancy rewaxing your own bag, you can send it off to Rewax and they’ll do it for you. Head over to rewax.co.uk for more information.
