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/Regular (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.

spacious bag but problems with tire hitting
rating
by Jellyfish10

First off the medium beg holds a surprising amount of gear. I loaded it up for a trial run on my rear suspension bike, and there I found the limitation. With medium sized bumps and suspension travel, the rear tire hits the bottom of the bag and would likely rub a hole in the bag. I'm planning on taking it on a 200 mile hut to hut trip in two weeks, and now not sure. I tried raising my seat, which helped a little, but the problem persists. Can anyone recommend how to improve upon this?

Got this bag for a six day Erie Canalway bike trip and it was great. At first I had this thing packed to the brim and it swayed as I rode. I even had It drooping down and hitting my rear wheel at times. This was the first bag of this type Ive ever used however so I pretty much didnt know what I was doing. I quickly became a pro as my trip progressed though. Theres a right and efficient way to pack this thing up as well as how to tighten the straps up. Once you get it the bag is great. Ive read one or two negative reviews online about the swaying issue but Id imagine theyre coming from people who havent used it enough. Again its a great bag. Cant wait to use it on my next journey.

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.

Excellent saddle pack
rating
by Bruce

1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

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.

Mounts easily and securely. Light weight. Roll up allows for flexible size and quick access to items like jacket while bag is on bike. Holds load well so effect on bike handling was minimal. Prefered the larger size for flexibility.

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.

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

Great saddle pack
rating
by Ebiker from Portland
Daily Commuter

As an ebike tourer I needed to be able to carry an extra 11 battery and also wanted to be able to control the bag swinging while centering the weight. This bag works beautifully and is a perfect fit for my bike seat. It holds the battery plus a charger, rain gear, etc. This is my second bag, for a second bike. The first one is in great shape and has over 5,000 miles on it. Water tight as well.

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 wanted a more versatile bag more for everyday commuting and the compact version of the Apidura Backcountry really hit the spot. Highlights are lightweight, visibility, rear light attachments, internal pocket and good construction.

i have tons of bikepacking gear from many different brands. this is my favorite piece of them all. cant find a larger saddle bag on the market. i can fit my 1man freestanding tent, a 4.4rating inflatable sleeping pad, furoshiki vibram shoes, ice cleats, rain pants, bike pump and more all together. ive had it for years and its going strong. i use it most of the time for quick shopping trips. a full gallon of milk will fit in it perfectly with room for a few other things. thank you apidura!

used this product to go bike packing. I think it's the perfect size, if much bigger it would be too much weight high on the bike. Some how I needed more ways to attach a rear tail light on it. This is a great product and doesn't swing when standing out of the saddle. Learn to pack smart with this style of bag.

Stable, light, perfect fit, huge saddle pack

by brischfc

Very light. Very stable on the bike. Can fit a huge amount of bikepacking gear. Cinch straps allow it to be really well tightened down to the saddle. Exterior webbing is great for cinching down clothing items that you may want quick access to. I have not been able to test the water resistance of this bag yet, but I would pack anything inside in some plastic ziplocs or drybags, just to be sure. Really happy with this saddle bag so far.

I use this bag on my 29-er. I wanted to carry some extra items while riding the C&O canal without having a rack or saddle bags. This has done the trick, the bag has tons of room and you don't notice it on the bike at all. I had several energy bars, two bottles of Gatorade, some tools and a rain jacket stuffed in the bag with a lot of room leftover.

I used this bag for touring Italy with small front panniers. It did its job caring my gear. If you have to take it off a lot like I did it takes some time to put back on when full. Was able to keep it pretty tight so it wouldnt sway.
