The Odyssey XL is a bikepacking saddlebag that can be mounted on the rear or the front with suitable bag supports. It has a massive expandable carrying capacity. The rolltop closure, extendable flap and D rings on the lid make this a truly versatile bikepacking bag. The bag is constructed from super tough 1000 denier Cordura that strikes the right balance of waterproofness, weight and wear. For visibility, there are reflectors on the pockets and lid, plus LED straps allow the addition of a light. The base is reinforced with a removable corrugated board that helps prevent sagging when the bag is not full.
An integral Bagman Support pocket on the outside gives the bag extra stability when used with the Bagman Saddlebag Support (Expedition) - not included. Inside the bag is an integrated zipped pocket plus two further pockets with press stud closures. There's a convenient carrying handle plus D rings on the sides which allow you to carry the bag off the bike with a shoulder strap (not included).
The Bikepacking saddlebag comes with 3 straps to attach it to the seat post and bag loops on the saddle or bag support.
- Visibility - Bikepackers are often out early and back late when the light is not great. It makes sense to maximise visibility with high-quality reflector.
- Sustainability - We like to do our bit for the planet by making bags that can, with a little care, last a lifetime. We have also incorporated upcycled inner tubes in the bag designs to grip and protect the frame as well as phasing out the use of leather.
- Easy Access - A major gripe for large seatpack users, is the extra time taken to fit bags with the straps and tensioning needed. The Odyssey works best with bag support like our Bagman support. It prevents sway and allows for a quick and easy demounting. It's wide opening allows for easy access to the contents but it's only as wide as the average person's hips so you don't take an aero hit when out on the trails. .
- All the bags in our Bikepacking range are hand-crafted in our factory in Nelson, Lancashire.
