Our first Collective Reward of the year comes courtesy of Rockgeist, North Carolina-based makers of some of the most interesting custom and readymade bikepacking bags on the market. We’ve featured a number of their innovative creations on the site over the years, including the custom Wedge frame bag and Spacelink, as well as the Fiber Flight Framebag and Foxglove saddlebag we gave away last year.
More recently, Miles selected the Cache XL Top Tube Bag (pictured here) as one of his dozen editor’s picks for 2019, and we’re excited to be able to give a Cache to two lucky Bikepacking Collective members, in their choice of size, color, and other options. It’s a bag designed for easy one-handed zipper access while riding, and features cord access for electronics, a glow in the dark zipper pull, and a tapered design to help avoid knee rub.
Depending on options, Rockgeist Cache Top Top Bags sell for between $54.95 and $66.95. Every bag is built with Ballistic Cordura® against the stem, 1000d Cordura® on the spine, a YKK® water-resistant zipper, X-Pac™/ Cordura® on the outside face, and closed-cell foam inserts for stability.
The Cache is available in three sizes:
- Small: 2.75″ wide at stem, 4″ tall at stem, 7.75″ length
- Large: 3.25″ wide at stem, 3.75″ tall at stem, 9.0″ length
- XL: 2.75″ wide at stem, 4.75″ tall at stem, 9.25″ length
