New Orange RidePac by VeloPac

A few years ago - 23/12/16 to be precise - I posted a review of the 'RidePac' cycling wallet by 'Velopac.' CLICK HERE. Needing a second to store a few more bits and pieces in I searched straight away to get another one.

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!!
