Roll-top frame bag

The centerpiece of most bikepacking set-ups, and probably the best bag to go custom on. Although there are plenty of off the shelf options none will fit as well as a custom one. This will not only make the most of the available space but will also have people complimenting your rig, maybe even calling it dialed if you’re lucky.

Getting into it is a bit of a chore compared to a zipper, and the roll top adds a centimeter of width to the bag, so keep that in mind if your riding style is particularly knee inwards. So why go for a roll-top frame bag? The roll-top frame bag is like the Lada Niva of frame bags, a bit clunkier but it just won’t break. Even the best zippers can jam, if you want something that is absolutely failure proof this is what to get, additionally they’re more water resistant than a zippered bag.

There are a lot of options. so head over to the frame bag page to read up on that. Once you’ve placed your order I will need a picture of your bike to draw the template for a perfect fitting bag, you can read all about that on the frame bag template page.


For more info on fabric options read the fabrics page.

If you want a multi-coloured bag you can pick a second fabric here, use the text box below to describe what you want or leave it empty to let me surprise you. Either way I will get back to you with a sketch before starting production.

Opposed to my zippered frame bags, these don’t come with a cable port by default. If you need to feed a hydration hose or wires for digital devices into your bag, add it here!
Roll-tops and zippers don’t mix, but I do offer flat pockets on the non-drive side for quick access pockets.
The daisy chain against the top tube is handy for tent poles or a pump.

The construction of a roll-top bag doesn’t play well with the lace-up I do on my zippered frame bags, you can however use the daisy chain for a lace-up.

On these tubes I use bolt-on where possible, to bridge the gap between the bolts and the top tube or head tube you can either use a daisy chain with a strap or continue the lace-up if you have it on the top tube.
