Revelate Designs is one of the most recognizable bikepacking bag brands on the market today, and it’s also one of the oldest. They were the first to introduce a modular front handlebar harness system, standard-sized frame bags, and a holster-style seat bag system, among other innovations. They’ve been around long enough that some of their products names have become generic descriptors for countless other bags.

“I had also cobbled together a collection of compression sacks and other bags that I strapped to a rack, forming small panniers on my mountain bike. Off I went for two months in Patagonia. That was 2001 and it was my first bikepacking setup.” – From our interview with Eric at their 10-year anniversary
