REI recently released two new bikepacking bags, each constructed with a unique tan, Bluesign approved ripstop nylon. Both have a few unique features. Learn more about the REI Link Seat Pack and Link Handlebar Bag in these two video reviews…

Since the expansion of the REI Co Op Cycles brand, and its introduction of two affordable bikepacking-centric models, it’s no shocker to see the large US retailer introduce a lineup of inexpensive bikepacking bags. The REI bikepacking bag range is called Link and features the new Link Seat Pack, Link Handlebar Bag, and Link Pannier (which we’ll get to later). Here are the reviews and details about the seat pack and handlebar bag.

REI Link Seat Pack

The REI Link Seat Pack features an 11-liter main storage compartment with an additional tent pole sheath, bungee gear deck, and two included stuff sacks for modular, off-the-bike packing and unpacking. The bag is made of Bluesign approved ripstop nylon and sells for $79.95. Watch the full review below and then scroll down for more details specs.
