Materials & care
THE LIMITED EDITION RAPHA + APIDURA SADDLE PACK COMBINES STRIKING FORM WITH PEERLESS FUNCTION.
A sleek rear Pack built to carry light, compressible clothing and gear under the saddle, rendering panniers and backpacks obsolete.
This lightweight Pack features a minimal design and is built from a tough, all-weather fabric with ultra-high resistance to tears and abrasion, keeping contents dry and protected. A roll-top closure system makes packing and unpacking simple, while dual compression straps and a secure attachment system help the Pack hug the saddle, reducing lateral movement.
Two reflective strips in Rapha’s signature colours and light attachments increase visibility at all light levels, while a bright pink interior lining makes it easier to sort through the Pack’s contents.
While the body fabric of this Pack is waterproof, due to the stitching process used to assemble the product, there is the possibility for water to enter through the seams when exposed to sustained rain. We recommend using an internal dry bag for contents that must remain absolutely dry.
The Rapha + Apidura Saddle Pack is built from Dimension-Polyant VX21, a four-layer laminated fabric originally developed for the maritime industry. The material combines waterproofness, light weight, low stretch, and high abrasion and tear resistance.
The base and velcro straps are reinforced with Hypalon, an ultra-durable rubberised nylon that provides extra protection against friction and puncture. For the compression straps, we’ve chosen Woojin buckles for their strength and reliability.
Finally, a lightweight moulded section of HDPE thermoplastic sits in the Pack’s lower section to reinforce its structure.
Wash by hand, using a mild diluted soap if necessary. Afterwards, let it air dry.
Do not machine wash, machine dry, or iron.

Be sure to follow the clearance advice below to ensure the best possible fit for your Saddle Pack.
If possible, flip the seat post collar so that the bolt is on the opposite side of the post to the Saddle Pack. This will ensure that the base of the Pack avoids wear and tear.
