How big is Alpkit bike luggage in litres?

One of the questions we get asked the most is how much stuff will fit in our bike luggage. Sometimes size does matter and when you’re trying to get as much as you can for your next bike-packing trip it’s good to get a rough idea of how much space you’ll have.

The following list gives measurements of roughly how many packing chips we could fit into an upsettingly empty ice-cream tub. The tub was 1L and the packing was your fairly standard polystyrene chips. Not the most accurate measurement, but we’re working on it.

Koala - approx. 8L

Kowari - approx. 3L

Fuel Pod Small - approx. 0.5L

Fuel Pod Medium - approx. 1.0L

Fuel Pod Large - approx. 1.3L

Possum Small - approx. 1.2L

Possum Medium - approx. 2.0L

Possum Large - 2.3L

Stem Cell - approx. 1.0L

Obviously the actual amount you’ll be able to get into a bag will depend on what you’re trying to pack. After all, a down jacket is a lot squashier than a set of cooking pots.
