    Gear Bag

    I'm looking for a cycling specific gear bag.
    One that would hold all my gear when I have to leave home and take all my stuff with me.
    Does anybody have or use a cycling gear bag ?
    Suggestions on where to look or any good ones that you know of ?

    Thanks

    Revelate designs makes an awesome "gas tank" bag and an even better food bag for the side of the bars. Holds power bars, 5hr energy, banana, apple, etc... and is truly 1 hand open and close on the run. Durable stuff too.

    Ogio endurance 8.0 or 9.0

    Separate pockets for shoes, helmet, clean clothes, and wet stuff. Also has side pocket(s) for water bottles and nutrition, tubes, etc. Plus a hard zippered enclosure for glasses.

    I have had an ogio 8 for a couple years. Really like it.

    Orange mud modular gym and tri bag looks nice too.

    I have one much like this. It's held up well over several years of use. Mine has a separate end pocket that I use for shoes.

    What in your mind would make a bag 'cycling specific'?

    I just use a duffle bag and other than cycling company logos and being double the price I can't think of anything that would make it cycling specific.

    Boxes work better, I have a small one which has all the immediate stuff, shoes, helmet, gloves. And a bigger one that has all my back up shoes, tires, tubes, tools which is bigger. When I take both, I put the little one in the big one.
    Much easier than digging around in a bag for stuff.

    ¨Does anybody have or use a cycling gear bag ? Does anybody have or use a cycling gear bag ?¨

    I second the Revelate Designs recommendation. I use their Tanga half-frame bag on all of my bikes. It's the length of your top tube and about 5 inches deep. It's designed to not bulge out when over stuffed, except a little near the head tube where it won't interfere with your knees. Its interior is bright red and yellow, making it easier to see what's inside the pockets.

    If I need more carrying capacity, I use their Pika seat bag. Its 3-point attachment is secure whether it's full or empty, and the end rolls up out or in depending on how full it is. Great for commuting.

    Revelate Designs (Anchorage, AK) has made a name for itself in the bikepacking world. They make a lot of different bike-specific bags, check them out.

    No, they're not cheap, but they will last for years of hard use, unlike a cheap duffel bag.

    I use a Home Depot tool bag. It holds a lot of stuff. Lots of pockets (inside and out) for organizing and finding stuff easily. The outside pockets perfectly fit water bottles.
    It'll fit a helmet inside. Maybe shoes, but I carry them in a separate shoe bag.

    Other than the obnoxious bright red color, I love this thing.

    i got a cool, cheap bag from the army/navy outlet store online and ironed on a cinelli patch and a geronimo chief patch found on ebay.

    "there," i said. "now it's cycling specific."

    I have been using a Fila duffel for a couple of years. For $28 at eBags, (https://www.ebags.com/product/fila/a...uctid=10409542) this is a great bag that holds all my cycling stuff: shoes, helmet, kits, water bottles, energy gels, etc. It has two end pockets and a smaller side pocket. The nylon material seems very durable, and the heavy duty zippers operate smoothly. Carry handles velcro together, and a removable shoulder strap is included. Very hard to beat for the price.
