Dropper Saddle Pack (6L)
Materials & care
Designed to work with dropper seat posts in combination with a Dropper Post Adapter.
The Dropper Saddle Pack is versatile and hard-wearing, for technical riding on demanding, rugged terrain. An evolution of our Backcountry Saddle Pack, the pack has been designed to make full use of the limited space under the saddle, without affecting dropper post operation.
The base of the Dropper Saddle Pack has been reinforced to protect against the increased likelihood of tire contact and features a detachable skid plate.
The pack capacity has been maximised to allow riders with limited clearance, such as those using a dropper seat post, to carry lightweight, compressible items below the saddle.
The Dropper Saddle Pack is made from Dimension-Polyant VX21, a four-layer laminated fabric originally developed for the maritime industry. It is designed to meet the demands of off-road riding whilst still being light weight, low stretch and resistant to tears and abrasions.
The base of the Saddle Pack and velcro straps are reinforced with Hypalon, a durable rubberised nylon that provides extra protection against friction and puncture. An internal lightweight moulded structure in the lower section of the Saddle Pack further reinforces the Hypalon base.
The Dropper Saddle Pack is afforded additional protection from tire contact by a detachable external skid plate made from lightweight moulded HDPE thermoplastic.
The Dropper Post Adapter is 3D printed using laser-sintered nylon in collaboration with 76 Projects.
Wash by hand, using a mild diluted soap if necessary. Afterwards, let it air dry. Do not machine wash, machine dry, or iron.

The Dropper Post Adapter is required in order to use the Dropper Saddle Pack on a bike with a dropper seat post.
The Dropper Post Adapter is designed to hold the pack securely, while also limiting travel to avoid damage. Riders looking for a smaller pack to fit a bike with limited rear wheel clearance can purchase the pack on its own.
Fast and simple to attach, the Dropper Post Adapter comes with shims that fit the majority of dropper posts on the market including both 25mm and 26mm diameter posts.
