Great products often come from our own needs and wishes... As what some might call dry bag enthusiasts, it is our utmost pleasure to make available a product that's long been kicking around in our heads and solves a problem with our existing setups. Namely: one bag that works with a bunch of racks and is quick to swap between bikes.
Meet the Rack Buddy! A versatile, simple, and multi-use rack bag that's incredibly quick to take on or off, can be easily swapped from bike to bike or rack to rack, can convert to a tote bag for running errands, or can be used as a stuff sack or dry bag when traveling.
The fabric is a favorite Made in USA waxed canvas 7oz sail cloth that will only gain beauty with age and use and they are sewn right in our South Minneapolis neighborhood by our friendly local bag maker, James from Beard Bags. They will serve you well for years to come.
The four velcro straps have shown themselves to be plenty for keeping the Rack Buddy secured during our testing, but if you're running a heavy load, over stuffing, shredding trails or whatever, you might want to use an additional strap.
