How to choose the right Cycling Bag for me

With all the bike packing gear and commuter backpacks we offer, you're left saying, "Which one is right for me?" This is especially true for new riders as well as adventure seekers. Well, here's a guide to help you decide which bicycle bag will be your daily commuter bag to your ultimate bike backing bag. 


1. Casual Cyclist: "I just want a small bag for my bike." or "I'm just getting into cycling."

All of our Small Bike Bags and Hip Bags are great options to put all your EDC. Although considered "small bags," you'll be surprised how much you can fit in these compact cycling bags. These bags start around $30.

2. Avid commuter bag minimalist: "I want my bags to say, 'I'm here to party, but I wanna be formal too.'"

Our handlebar bags and saddle bags are probably your best bet here. They hold a ton of stuff and still around $40 for most bags. You'll want to definitely check out the "Burrito Bags" first.

3. Bike Packing Adventurist: "I want my bike to have a place to put all my essentials and more."

Here are some great bags for bikepacking and the person that wants to carry their camping gear, water, food, and survival tools. Our favorite is the "Jammer" (first image).

4. Bike Messenger: "My bag is used to carry large quantities of goods frequently."

The best bag for messengers is the definitely our larger backpacks, such as the Large Anything pack or our biggest, baddest courier bag The Americano (shown respectively)
