Modern rackless bike luggage made from waxed cotton, a natural and traditional material, right here in our UK factory. Wet waxed cotton looks great, feels great and is entirely functional thanks to the wax coating which gives the fabric its water resistant coating.

Possum ½ frame bag sits in your front triangle to provide stable, secure, and swing-free storage for carrying your heavier items without affecting handling too much. It’s shaped to fit modern geometries with lower stand over heights and the ½ bag design gives you space to run bottles and cages. 

Possum is spacious for its size, with a main compartment for bigger objects and a smaller accessory/document pocket on the drive side to keep your wares organised. The front-facing cable port keeps things neat and simple when you're running wires to your dynamos and charging your light batteries. 

Constructed in our UK factory, Possum is made to cope with demands of adventure without adding weight to your set-up. Like all our UK-made bikepacking luggage, it’s backed up by our 25-year Alpine Bond warranty.  

A webbing ladder offers endless fastening points; simply cut the VELCRO® strap provided to size.

Designer Notes

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.​
