For those that have never heard of Dyed in the Wool (DITW) you could be easily forgiven. This German manufacturer came about due to their love of bikes and love of travel.

“With the move to Germany, we decided it was time to bring together what we have learned from all of the “one-off” bags for friends and family trips around Europe into a full collection of performance accessories for your adventures by bike”

The XL Bar bag is our take on a classic Randonneur bar bag. We have adjusted the proportions slightly and added loads more practical features making this the perfect go-to bike bag for commuting, nipping to the park for some beers or a 300KM epic.

The outer is a fully waterproof shell reinforced with an HD foam and HDPE liner, creating a sturdy bag that will not deform when attached to the bike. This means you don’t need a front rack to use this bag! But if you did, something like the Nitto F-16 is a good option.

We wrapped the outside of the bag with Molle webbing allowing you to play with attachment points and mount lights as well as other accessories creating a really versatile platform no matter what you need to carry.

The main compartment is accessed by a large roll top closure creating a highly water-resistant expandable bag. There is a secondary access to the main compartment via a waterproof zip giving you quick access to the bag’s contents while on the move.

A further zipped pocket on the top of the bag with a secure key loop is perfect for your phone, wallet or other items that you need in easy access to.

Finally two D rings on each side mean you can easily convert it from a bar bag to a shoulder bag, perfect for those trips away from your two-wheeled friend.
