Home made bags on my Trek Remedy 8 29er. Handle bar sling secures lightweight OR dry bag with sleep kit and warm gear to the handle bars. Bag below the seat has repair kit, tubes, CO2 cartridges, multi tool and zip ties. Saddle bag has the rest of the clothing as well has an elastic “spider web” on the top for securing shoes and other items if need be. all the bags were made  with 1000D coated cordura material. I used old retired fire hose for the bottom of the saddle bag and anywhere there is a rub point. The rubber side of the fire hose offers a great protection barrier.  The seams were sealed using Aquaseal seam sealer for optimal water resistance. I sacrificed weight for durability by going with 1000D cordura and fire hose for its rough durability against tears or damage.  I am carrying a smaller backpack for carrying food, water, first aid kit and small random items. IMG_0957 IMG_0959 IMG_0958for its rough durab

Hi conifir!
I’m a design student in the Netherlands currently working in a fictional project related to bikepacks. Since it is a flat country it is very hard for me to find mtb trekking users. I would love if you could answer me some questions about your experience. If you are interested, let me know in this mail please:

Thanks a lot!
Other users than want to help are welcome as well 😉
