WATERPROOF BIKE BAGS BUYING GUIDE
1: I WANT TO TAKE MY BIKE BAG OFF THE BIKE
When you cycle to work through a downpour, you want to be sure that your laptop and notebook stay dry. The Shelter Clean bicycle bag has a padded compartment for your laptop which allows you to transport your valuables safely and dry. The bag is equipped with a KLICKfix system with which you can easily remove the bicycle bag from your luggage carrier. Having a carrying strap included the bike bag is transformed into a shoulder bag in no-time. The Selter Clean is available in two sizes: Large (21L content) and Medium (17L content).
2: MY BIKE BAG CAN STAY ON THE BIKE
Many cyclists find it practical to leave panniers permanently attached to their bicycle. In such a case, the Double Shelter bicycle bag offers a solution. Groceries, packages, your work- or sports bag fits easily in our double pannier. This way you can instantly turn a non-waterproof bag into a waterproof bag.
3: MY BIKE DOESN'T HAVE A CARRIER
Not every bicycle has a pannier rack and not every regular bag is waterproof. That's why we designed the Shelter Backpack. This backpack is 100% waterproof and has a specially reinforced compartment for a 14-inch laptop. Ideal for school, study or commuting. The backpack is available in a neon version, among other colors, so that you stand out more on dark days.
4: I WANT TO PROTECT MY SMALLER ACCESSORIES
Phone, wallet and keys. When cycling in the rain, it is not ideal to have to search for all these loose items in your clothing. The Case Shelter is the waterproof solution. This case fits in a cycling jersey and offers enough space for your bank cards and your phone. It even comes with a zipper for keys. Perfect for storing all your small sized accessories.
5: I NEED BAGS FOR A CYCLING HOLIDAY
Last but not least, the Shelter series is even suitable for cycling holidays, nike packing trips or weekend breaks. The Tech Shelter Large single bicycle bag has been developed for this purpose. The single panniers can be used on both sides of the bicycle and can be combined with the Shelter Clean Medium pannier for the front pannier rack. For all your valuables, you can expand the pannier set with a Clean Shelter handlebar bag or Tech Shelter handlebar bag.
