The Revelate Designs Sweetroll Bag is 100% waterproof, super versatile and is one of the best handlebar mounted bikepacking bags on the market. We recommend these for any serious rider here in the Midwest that's looking to hit the road in the Spring, Summer or Fall. If you think it might rain, pack a Sweetroll.
From Revelate Designs:
The Sweetroll is our stand alone 100% waterproof bikepacking handlebar bag. It’s highly versatile: dual sided roll down closures allow for a wide range of load carrying and the modular front system lets you add one of our pockets for more storage. Sweetrolls are built with Radio Frequency welded seams.
The rule of thumb is to downsize your load on handlebars as much as possible for the best handling. The small / medium are best for singletrack, while the large is better suited for dirt roads, winter trips and truly bulky loads. Bigger is not better; choose the smallest bag you can get away with. Medium is the most versatile size.
Due to it's air tight construction, for best packing - compress your load like you would a drybag. Sweetroll's do not feature transverse external compression straps since you cannot compress air once the bag is closed.
Disk or V Brake only - NOT compatible with Cantilever or road style front brakes with a vertical exposed cable.
Drop bars? Choose the large size for larger carrying space in a limited width. Please read this blog post for more info.
Jones loop bars? The Sweetroll has additional dedicated attachment points for 4 point mounting on Jones loop bars. Please read this blog post.
Front pockets must be purchased separately.
