Description

Description

The Restrap Bar Pack is an ideal bag when you need extra space on long bike rides or for bikepacking adventures. Thanks to two fully waterproof compartments with a total capacity of 10 liters, you have enough space for clothes, food, tools or other items for the road. Moreover, the Restrap Bar Pack includes an elastic cord at the top for storing gloves, jackets and other accessories.

Worry-free cycling through all kinds of weather
The two compartments of the Restrap Bar Pack have a waterproof roll-top closure. This top closure protects the contents of your bag from rainwater. Even in heavy rain, your stuff will stay completely dry. With the Restrap Bar Pack, you can hit the road worry-free in any weather.

Sturdy fit
This handlebar bag includes an internal reinforcement and an extra hard shell back. This sturdy construction keeps the Bar Pack securely in place.

Mounting
The Restrap Bar Pack mounts easily and securely to your handlebars using buckles. No tools are needed for this, so you'll be ready to go in no time. Moreover, you attach this handlebar bag to your head tube, thus reducing the chances of the handlebar bag rubbing against your frame and causing frame damage. To prevent it completely, use frame protection.

Connection for a U-lock
Unique to this handlebar bag is that you can store a U- lock / D-lock between the two compartments. This lock is locked in thanks to the security strap of the front compartment for a safely parked bike.

Handmade bags
All bags from Restrap are handmade and are finished with vegan friendly PU.

User tips

Despite the extra attachment to your head tube, the handlebar bag can damage your frame if you do not use frame protection. We therefore recommend protecting your head tube with frame protection.

Very good bag for when you want to carry just a bit more.

- Jeroen 2 May 2024

I am a big fan of Ortlieb bags because of their technical excellence. The only thing Ortlieb doesn't have is a handlebar bag that looks good/okay in addition to being technically good. Either they are 'drybag bags' where you can't get anything in or out quickly, or they are bags with an ugly messy top. This Restrap bag has solved that bit well. Because of how the bag is closed, it always sits neatly shut. It is a fairly stiff bag. The insert that makes the bag keep its shape is on both the front and the back of the bag. This does mean you have to cram something in if you really want to put 10 litres in it. The fastening system is child's play. It hangs from two straps. Once you have the first strap loosely through the buckle, attach the second strap, the Velcro at the bottom around your handlebar tube and pull the straps tight. The whole thing is then secure, even on the rougher stretches. On these stretches, you do hear a slight rattle. I suspect where the hard back hits the frame. Like many handlebar bags, this one protrudes slightly above the handlebars, preventing your Garmin mount from protruding forward. I solved this by mounting the mount backwards. As for mounting, this bag does depend a lot on the length of your handlebar stem. I myself have a 70mm stem, which works fine. The bag itself then leans against the frame at the back and is still quite 'upright'. Keep in mind that this means the bag rubs against your frame with every steering movement. So tape the areas where the bag touches the frame well and check/replace the tape periodically. If you have a longer handlebar stem, the bag will hang forward too much, with all the inconveniences that this entails. In that case, I would use this bag in combination with the Restrap bumper bar. This ensures that the bag no longer leans on the frame, but against the bumper bar, making it stand more upright. In all cases, though, as with any bag, make sure you protect the frame where the bag touches the frame and also pay attention to any cables that might be pressed more against the frame by a handlebar bag. The front pocket of the bag really just accommodates a phone or not too bulky wallet. It is slightly easier to reach quickly than the main compartment, though. The space between the two compartments is meant for a shackle lock; I have a folding lock in here myself. In fact, the compartment is far too small for my bracket lock. At the bottom of this compartment is a fairly substantial 'hole' to ensure that no water stays in it. This hole is so big that anything smaller than a folding lock could potentially fall through it. So the space cannot really be used for anything else. If I have to think of one small drawback it is that this bag has no small side pockets, but overall this really is one of the better mid-size handlebar bags at the moment.

Pros & Cons

Fully waterproof
Maintains shape well
Roomy
Mounting very dependent on stem length
No side pockets

Substandard product with a very hefty price tag.

- Aad 2 May 2023

I am very disappointed in this Restrap handlebar bag. The attachment to the handlebar is hopeless, you are always one hand short with a full bag. The straps on the handlebars are very short and the buckles sit very awkwardly under your handlebars. The strap in the middle on the front fork tube has damaged the paint on my new gravel bike right up to the frame due to wringing. The filled bag hangs very far forward, causing bottles of e.g. chain oil to lie horizontally or even upside down with a chance of leaking. The space between the two compartments really serves no purpose. Doesn't seem to me that an experienced cyclist was involved in the design.

Pros & Cons

Compact, fits well between handlebars
Looks nice
Filled bag sags far forward
Space between 2 compartments completely useless
Strap on head tube causes damage
Strapping to handlebars is hopeless
