    Its all rackless these days. Frame bags, seat harnesses and bar “systems”.

    WildcatGear are very, very good.

    Does that all work on a road bike? All sounds like a lot of squeezing stuff into small spaces.

    Tubus rack, Ortlieb panniers.

    Topeak racks if you want to spend a little less. If you have no mounting points, then a beamrack and rackpack isn’t a bad option, although the racks are heavy.

    Otherwise, Nelson Longflap.

    Jandd frame bag, and I’ve now got a Wildcat Tiger bag for the saddle instead fo the world’s most complex webbing strap arrangement.

    Depends how much you’re carrying. Travel light, travel far and fast…

    I recently wore a hole in the bottom of my Ortlieb pannier, but I don’t think that’s too bad after 5 years of daily use.

    Topeak are the best budget option and I would add Altura Arran bags to that also. I would go with a rack and P-Clips rather than beam rack if you do not have eyelets as it is a much sturdier set up

    Oh, or Carradice… For Credit Card Touring…

    Topeak DX rack and ortlieb panniers.

    Although after riding the bike fully loaded with 2×25 on the back and 2x20l on the front I decided a credit card and lightweight racer were more fun.

    That Carradice is a thing of beauty.

    Thanks guys – lots to go on here.

    Planning a trip of a few days on my Genesis Equilibrium and could do with some luggage. I could do with something fairly lightweight (on the rack front, anyway).

    Tubus rack on one bike, Blackburn one on the other, both are good. Upgraded to a pair of Ortliebs at Christmas, they do give you a reassuring sense that those clean clothes will be dry no matter how much it rains.
