The Essential is a Bicycle Handlebar Bag, that is also a shoulder/cross-body bag.
We designed The Essential with quick casual trips in mind where you only need to bring your priority items with you, not the kitchen sink. Like all our bags this is a great lifestyle bag that works on, and off, the bike. In the city, or far far out of the city.
We have used this bag for zipping around the city on our city bikes, on road rides, on gravel rides, for walking our dogs, and being tourists (where we used it as our main daily vacation bag). This bag has a great cost-per-wear investment ratio!
Regarding gravel riding, although this was not initially our intended use, we found The Essential to perform well on gravel (ideally for a non-aggressive rider). If you use the bag on gravel, we suggest you get yourself some frame saver tape from your local bike shop to prevent that inevitable rub gravel riders experience on their frame.
As always, we designed the front tool pocket for those essential repair items, just like our Seat Rollio: C02 Cartridges, Tire Levers, a Multi-tool. And the inside was designed with pockets for your phone, wallet, chapstick, and keys.
The handlebar attachment is made to easily attach with velcro straps that loop around your bar. The attachments quickly tuck away into the back rear zipper pocket when you are off the bike.
Included detachable strap. Remove and tuck into interior pocket when cycling.

**We recommend not overstuffing this bag. Packed bag weight should not exceed 2.5 lbs (unpacked weight is 14.3 oz). The fabrics are water resistant (not proof); this bag is not made to take in heavy downpours. Additionally, winter weather is damaging to all things; if winter messes (salt, slush, melt, etc.) concern you, choose another great bag on the market made precisely to withstand winter conditions. We made this product to last, but not for extreme conditions. If use in any of these conditions occur, the äventyr manufacturing warranty will be deemed void.
