My original RidePac has been with me on every ride I have undertaken ever since I got it. It is still quite brilliant with the small VeloPac lanyard on the zip coming off being the only thing that hasn't survived. I have a few cycling wallets by Rapha and Bellroy but none are as good as these.
The dimensions are 100mm x 185mm and the internal dimensions are 85mm x 170mm. I can fit my iPhone 11 inside if I wised with ease along with quite a few other bits and pieces.
The new one is made out of a different material to my original one and I have to say I like it a little better. It is a waterproof Ripstop fabric that has inner padding and bound seams.
The inside has a bright olive material making things inside easier to see and better than the original which was black.
My original RidePac is packed to bursting point with:
- Spare Brompton chain
- 2 x Brompton inner tubes
- 2 x CO2 cartridges
- CO2 inflator
- 15mm and 10mm spanner
- Park tool hex keys
- Tyre boot
- Rubber gloves
- Self-adhesive patches
- Spare set of contact lenses
This new version seems a little bigger and has obviously evolved into something that to me looks better - if that is possible.
In case you are wondering I bought this with my own money and my opinions are my own based on almost four years of using the original RidePac.
I even like the colour! (Other colours and designs are available of course). It costs £20 and for this it is a bargain!
Stay safe out there people!!
