Want to imitate Jimin's backpack fashion? Here's what to look for in saddle backpacks:
Saddle backpacks are typically compact and streamlined to fit snugly under the bicycle seat as they are designed to be aerodynamic and not interfere with the rider's movements while cycling. While saddle backpacks may vary in size, they generally offer a smaller storage capacity compared to traditional backpacks and are designed to carry essential items such as spare tubes, tire levers, multitools, patch kits, keys, snacks and small personal belongings where these backpacks often use straps, Velcro or buckles to securely attach to the saddle rails or seat post of a bicycle.
This attachment system ensures stability and prevents the bag from bouncing or swaying during rides and many saddle backpacks are made from water-resistant or waterproof materials to protect the contents from moisture, light rain or splashes, which is particularly useful for keeping sensitive items like electronics or documents safe. Designed for quick and easy access to the stored items, some models feature multiple compartments, mesh pockets or external attachment points to organise and secure smaller items conveniently.
Saddle backpacks are popular among commuters and long-distance cyclists who need a compact storage solution for carrying essentials without the need for a larger backpack as they provide convenience and freedom of movement while riding. When choosing a saddle backpack, consider factors such as storage capacity, attachment system, durability and any additional features that may suit your specific needs and it's always a good idea to check reviews and product descriptions to find a saddle backpack that meets your requirements and is compatible with your bicycle.
