Carry gear without the need for a rear rack with Apidura's Saddle Pack.

With room for up to 17.5 liters of gear, this bag offers a great option for bikepackers, tourers, endurance racers, or anyone looking to carry gear without the use of a rear rack. Made from waterproof Dimension Polyant VX21 fabric, reinforced in high abrasion/stress areas, and supported with HDPE, this bag is built to stand up to any of the rigors of cycling. The three-point attachment system provides a solid connection with your bike, and a roll-top closure with compression straps keep your belongings secure. Reflective graphics and two light attachment points improve rider visibility.

The Backcountry Saddle Pack is available in three sizes: Standard (17.5L, 400g), Mid Size (14L, 360g), and Compact (11L, 350g).

Note: While this Saddle Bag is constructed using waterproof materials, moisture may enter the bag during sustained or heavy rain. The use of a dry bag is recommended when carrying products sensitive to moisture.

Excellent saddle pack
rating
by Bruce
Ontario Canada

The Apidura saddle pack is very well contructed with high quality materials, excellent fastening system and it looks good too. Easily carries several tops, shorts and essentials for a multi-day Inn to Inn trip. It even has room for a small narrow thermos! My pack is a size small. I like its versatility to roll down small

(though it looks a tad sloppy when folded small) it's surprising how volumous it is when expanded, plus the top bungies can hold down my pair of sandals or vest. When loaded, I notice the bike remains stable and not out of balance. The loaded bag moves minimally. I opted for the non waterproof version. If any contents need to be waterproof, simply wrap in a plastic bag. Apidura makes high quality gear that is practical.

A solidly constructed bike bag. There's plenty of room for everything you'd want to carry. When getting off your bike, remember that the pack is there. I almost tipped over when my leg clipped the pack because I forgot it was there.

A few friends of mine and I recently decided to do an overnight cycling trip from Portland out to Astoria, something like 90 miles each way on the road with a night at a hotel in between. Did a fair amount of research on different companies specializing in these types of bags and was delighted to see that Western carried such a high quality bag. Everyone in our group ended up buying some type of a bag specifically for the trip and although everyone made it just fine, mine was the only Apidura, it easily had the most cargo space, was the easiest to get inout of and, if I do say so myself, looked the slickest. Great bag, high quality, can't wait for the next trip.

Just returned from a 1200 mile trip down Baja California, Mexico with this saddle bag and I'm very satisfied with it. Easy to tighten down to the saddle and seatpost, with minimal swingingshifting when out of the saddle. The webbing on the top was very handy to stash a jacket, food, etc., and kept things secure. It seems very durable. Can't comment on waterproofing, as conditions were dry.

I bought this pack mainly for commuting purposes as I can't use any racks on my Warbird. The pack has a surprisingly good amount of room, looks sharp, and is easy to install and use. I've only made a couple rides with it but am quite happy with my purchase. At some point down the road I would love to do some bikepacking with it

A saddle pack with huge storage potential
rating
by Reed O
Portland, OR

A perfect addition for a long day in the saddle. Holds my pump, a day's worth of food, a jacket and a couple spare tubes easily. Haven't tested waterproofness. Only downside is how much it sways left to right when I stand up on the bike.

I bought the Apidura medium bag planning some ultralight credit card touring in spring. So far I've taken it out for a few tests. The saddlebag is light, well made, and it's hard to notice it while pedaling. While probably not as heavy duty as those with internal frame, this modelsize is perfect for an overnight, or a day outing at the beach. Look forward to take it on its first road trip!

Apidura makes great bags, a bit expensive, but the materials and construction are both very solid. Zero complaints.

Have used the Apidura for a year now on a regular daily commute. No signs of wear, stitching and hardware are all still perfect. I would recommend this based on how well it is made and how functional it is.

(Great to not use a backpack while commuting).

I love getting things I need for a ride off my back. I commute from work, so spare clothes, lunch, gear, etc. all goes in the pouch instead of a backpack. It's larger than I need most days, but someday hope to bike longer distances and it will be perfect. The ONLY thing I dislike is there is no separation within the pack (an interior or exterior pocket for keys, money, small items) would be awesome!

My primary bike doesn't have rack mounts, I didn't feel like rigging something with P-clamps, and I despise riding with a backpack, so large bikepacking seat bags were my best option. This has been my trusty bag for a whole season now and I've really grown to appreciate it. For daily commuting, the MEDIUM size is large enough to carry my lunch bag and business casual clothes. I do have to plan ahead and bring my towel and shoes separately, but that's not too terribly difficult.

I've also taken this on several overnight camping trips. It holds an entire 3-person tent, ground cloth, stakes, and poles included! I also manage to stuff my inflatable pillow and small camp stove in there as well. It's astonishing what will fit in here.

My only regret is getting the Medium size. The large would probably offer just enough space to not have to treat each camping trip like an exercise in weight cutting.

Pro Tip - stuff the front or nose of this bag as tightly as possible. If there's room to compress and wiggle, the bag will do find it by mile 30 and start riding crooked or swinging a bit much. Nothing you can't fix, but best to not have to deal with it at all.
