"A great place to house your kit; safe in the knowledge that is is protected, and it's not going to fly out of your pocket on the next descent. A worthwhile and affordable addition to your 'Every Ride Carry'."
Great design. Could be a touch deeper from to back to allow two tubes plus tools and phone to fit. Quite tight with one tube, two co2 canisters, multitool and iPhone 6+. Still love it
Just the right size for Phone, tools and spares. Really well made and waterproof. Good quality zip easy to use with gloves on. So much better than your kit in a plastic bag or worst still, loose items in your jersey pockets.
I keep a flat repair kit / multi-tool in the large compartment and my phone, key, a credit card/cash in the small internal compartment.
Fits in a jersey back pocket well.
Just grab and go for my rides.
I was looking for a pouch for a very specific reason, I need one to carry my phone and my diabetes supplies as well as a spare tube for long rides. I was using a plastic bag for my phone, key, card, cash, my tester, and test strips. Plus on long rides I wanted to bring a spare tube. After doing my last century the band around the tube broke and taking the plastic bag in out of the jersey with an unwrapped tube became a hassle. I had to find something better. I came across this bag on an online chat forum and it seemed the perfect thing for me. It could carry everything, keep it organized, and no risk of pulling out one item and dropping others with it. When it arrived it did seem big. However, it fits the jersey pocket perfectly and does not stick out above the pocket much at all. When they say wide and flat they mean it. There is a pocket for my phone (6S Plus) and the phone fits in there nicely. I can carry my diabetes supplies and a spare tube quite easily. And I can put my card, cash, and key in the same pocket as the phone with no issues. I did notice the slight weight at first but now I don't even think about it. This is a great little pack and I look forward to using it for many many rides.
Just completed RAGBRAI (full disclosure: last 4 days of the week, not the full week) and the pouch (canvas) worked great! I really did not notice it much while riding. I did notice it when NOT riding, especially when sitting on the ground or standing in line for pie and ice cream. But it was not uncomfortable...just more noticeable, so I knew I had it on me.
I used it to replace one of the two bags I have on my bike, so had my phone, money/IDs, eyeglasses, and extra Ziploc bags (in case of rain) in it. It did not rain during the ride, so I can't say on the water resistance and it was surprisingly cold for Iowa in late July so I wasn't sweating as much.
The quality is amazing (and the norm from Waterfield) and I'm really pleased with it.
What are the Velominate Rules?
If cycling is a big part of your life, you may have heard of The Velominati, devoted and loyal disciples of the great sport of cycling. They seek out the highest mountains and roughest roads, using their legs to propel them. They refer to their shaved legs simply as “The Legs” and speak of distance in kilometers and measure sizes in centimeters on matter what country they are in. They are the Keepers of the Cog, and maintain the sacred text wherein lie the simple truths of cycling etiquette knows as The Rules. Rule #31: "Spare tires, multi-tools, and repair kits should be stored in jersey pockets.” The Club Cycling Pouch was inspired by this Rule.
Doesn’t the back jersey pocket bulge out once you put in the tools, the phone, and other small pieces?
It could bulge out, but if you put all those pieces in the Cycling Club Pouch it, the tools will lay flat over a wider surface area. The width of the pouch is 1 inch, and will keep all the contents compact, preventing the big bulge.

How do you suggest I clean the ballistic nylon?
The ballistic nylon is *very* durable and will take scrubbing with a stiff brush and mild soap. Blot with towels/rags and let the case dry out. This should have the case looking good as new.
How do you suggest I clean the waxed canvas?
Waxed Canvas isn’t the easiest item on the planet to clean - part of the character-building process with Waxed Canvas is how it ages with scuffs, dirt, stains and all. Still, there are things you can do. This article gives you a good idea of how to clean and re-wax if and when you are ready. They suggest using dish soap and soft brush to clean, then drip dry, then take a hot hairdryer to heat up the wax and redistribute it. This will soften any blemishes and help with the dirt. The lines and crinkles on the waxed canvas are actually normal, and happens in shipping sometimes. All you have to do is use a hair dryer and you can flatten out the wax with your hand.
