Drybags – help for newbie bikepacker!
I’m currently setting up for an overnighter and want a handlebar mounted drybag – ideally just like this one – 13 litre if possible
However – its sold out – can anyone point me in the direction of a similar item?

With the Alpkit ones being often out of stock, I took to making my own in various guises. The Fabric was about £3 a square metre IIRC, and I make fixngs from bits I salvage from else where (just cut all the straps and bits off an old tent I found). Not beautiful, but effective an cheap etc.Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
Any link to the ASDA bags? I didn’t think they’d have their outdoor stuff out yet.
They come free with shopping.
I’m not being flippant, I’ve been cycle commuting for a long, long time and carrier bags are your best bet for keeping stuff inside your bag dry. They weigh nothing at all, you can carry plenty of spares, they’re free, you’re helping the environment by reusing the bags and you don’t care if they get damaged.Posted 4 years ago
I’m hoping to hand the drybag of the handlebars, so i’m not sure how effective the Asda shopping bag will be
Surely, if i hang it on its pre-designed handles, then the rain will just fall directly onto what i’m trying to keep dry
I’m not being negative – but i still need a bit more convincing….. 🙂Posted 4 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
My guess is that their manufacturers require one or two large production runs a year and they have to commit to numbers in advance.
I suffer from it every year though – either as a buyer or when I recommend something to friends, only to find they can’t get any of it!Posted 4 years ago
