As a Canadian, it’s always cool to see a new company from my homeland like Cat5Gear hit the scene. The Cat5Gear Cyclist Case is designed for carrying bike gear when you travel in a single, easy-to-carry bag. No need for multiple trips to the car with hands full of bike gear!
If you are a mountain, road, urban, or lifestyle cyclist, the Cat5Gear Cyclist Case is specifically designed to store all your cycling gear in one secure, convenient place. With almost 2000 cubic inches of volume, the Cyclist Case can hold just about anything you want to put in it:
• arm warmers • chain lube • chamois cream
• cycling shoes • cycling shorts
• energy gels and bars • first-aid kit • gloves
• heart rate monitor and computer • helmet • trail lights
• jersey • socks • sunglasses • sweat management headband
• sunscreen • tire tube • vest or wind breaker • insect repellent
• water bottles (holds 2)
This bag is perfect for a day trip or even a weekend excursion.
The case design is aesthetically appealing and you’ll be the envy of your fellow riding friends when they see how you’re able to carry all your gear in one neat and tidy case. Your mountain biking gear is protected by a rigid wall construction that will hold up to the usual everyday use. The entire case material inside and out is also easy to keep clean and wipe down. There are four separate compartments that are firmly held in place with velcro. This is great if you want to customize your case to your specific needs. The dividers can be removed, allowing the case to have two or three larger compartments. To free up storage space inside the case, each side has an exterior adjustable mesh water bottle holder.
A well-placed handle plus an embroidered, removable shoulder strap are included for optimum carrying flexibility. And finally, so you don’t forget anything, there is an integrated checklist pouch placed on the inside of the mesh cover (make copies of it on card stock before you write anything down).
I really like the Cat5Gear Cyclist Case. It fits in the back seat of the car or in the trunk. I think the mesh cover is a great design feature. If your helmet, gloves, or other gear is wet at the end of your ride, the air flow should dry things out a bit.
With a variety of colors to choose from, I’m sure there’s one to suit your palate. The Cyclist Case is available in six colors:
- Cat5 Green
- Power Purple
- Race Red
- Sunburst Orange
- Wild Raspberry
- Jet Black
This product is not designed for a full face DH helmet or other DH gear.
I would like to thank the folks at Cat 5 Gear for providing the bag for a review.
