Gear Bags for Race Day


Cross season is in full swing, temps are dropping, and the weather is becoming unpredictable. This means bringing almost every bit of your cycling wardrobe to your cross race. My question, what bags do you all use to transport your gear? I’ve been using just an old duffel from my soccer days, but find that my OCD does not appreciate the chaos of everything being thrown into one big compartment.


I mostly just use a backpack because then I can clip my helmet to the staps and my shoes can fit into a smaller front pocket in some of the other small pockets you can put your gels or any other things you could need and your clothes in the main pocket.


I love my Cat5 Gear bag:

I dont have any problems carrying just about everything I need for winter/summer/etc in it and when I do need more space I just clip my helmet to the handle and have plenty of room still inside.


I use kit brix and they are mega!


Cat 5 bag here too. Going on like 4 years old. Holding up still.


Really happy with my Pedal Industries Raceday bag.



I have one of these. It’s packed with everything needed for race days two nights before the first race of the season. Dirty race kit is washed immediately and re-packed as soon as it’s dry. I’ll unpack it and put it away after the last race of the season.


I really rate the Silca Maratona Gear Bag. It is a perfectly spec’d race bag, but a little pricey. However, if it is anything like my Silca floor pump in terms of durability, it’ll be a steal.


What brand is that?


Thanks, those look nice.


Another kitbrix fan here. I like that two zipped together is no bigger than a decent backpack and the straps can be hooked up to allow it to be carried on your back.


+1 here for the Pedal Industries Raceday Bag. We did a custom design for our club and I love how it looks, as well as how it’s organized.


It’s a Rapha Team Sky wet bag. It’s pretty old. I actually bought if off Adam Blythe!!
