Under ya seat harness and removable waterproof bag for lightweight off-road touring and multi-day mountain biking. Light, stable and voluminous.
Time of year, terrain and availability of huts all impact on your selection but on a two day-one night summer mtb trip you should easily be able to stash all your food, clothing and emergency kit into the Ortlieb Seat Pack/Handlebar Bag combo. You may choose to supplement those with a small daypack to carry a water bladder, lunch, snacks and evening meal. Check out the Weight Watcher’s Equipment Guide for more.
I’ve just used my revelation terrapin 14L on a 3 day solo mission, and it has provided invaluable storage space. I put my clothes, stove and sleeping bag in the compression sack with ease, and I’ve not felt any wobbling or bouncing. Solid build and very ergonomic design.
Great piece of kit, once I figured out how to out it on the bike. So easy to use and great quality.
A good solid bag and mounting. Requires care with packing to get nose of bag solid top stop bag bouncing onto rear wheel. This is only a problem with extremely hard offroad riding including jumping.
I purchased this from the high end of the bikepacking gear pool because the seppos rate these Alaskan-made bags so highly. A couple of loaded overnighters and it certainly lives up to the hype. Very well designed and constructed, completely waterproof, stuff off the bike and easily strap into excellent harness, and no tail wag. Thanks GroundEffect for bringing this brand south and for mailing to Aus super quick.
I have 190mm clearance from my saddle rails to the 3" rear tyre on my rigid 29er and I blew through the harness on the first ride through contact with the rear tyre. Despite constant attention, repacking, adjustment and care I simply didn't have enough clearance. My bag was the earlier model of the 14l terrapin and not bought from GE. Buyers should note that the clearances quoted on Revelate's website for this current bag are 8.5 inches or 216mm - which is more than 170mm quoted here. If you do have the clearance then the quality and functionality of my bag was awesome. And I have been buying from GE for a long time so I can tell you their service is great.
