Velominati Rule #31: "Spare tires, multi-tools, and repair kits should be stored in jersey pockets". The Cycling Ride Pouch does just that. Custom-fit for jersey pockets, tools are organized in the main compartment to take advantage of the wide surface area. It zips open flat so you can lay it on the ground when fixing a mechanical. 

A transparent front pocket separates the phone from the tools and lets you access it  without zipping open the pouch. A mesh back pocket has a removable mini wallet for cash, ID, keys and other small items. By utilizing a wider surface area, you can carry all these items without feeling bulky or heavy for a more comfortable ride. 

Designed with ELEVEN vélo of Sydney, Australia, maker of bespoke merino cycling wear.

All our products are crafted locally in our workshop by the most skilled sewing team in San Francisco.

Great all-around wallet

I bought this for keeping stuff in my cycle jersey, but I use it quite a bit on the weekends when I'm doing chores. I keep my wallet, phone and keys within grab distance when I'm lifting and carrying stuff, then it all fits into my pocket when I head down to the hardware store. I can see my phone alerts through the clear screen, and my wallet is easily accessible in the zipper compartment. Pretty happy.

Cycling ride pouch

Great item, I use it on all my rides. I use the small wallet to hold my crank brothers tool. Fits all my jerseys and not too bulky

Perfect phone & everyday carry case

I love this case! Gary and his team kindly added two web loops that stick out from under the flap so I could attach a strap and use it as a crossbody bag, because women's work clothes are notoriously lacking adequate pockets. I use it every day to carry around a personal iPhone and a work iPhone (6 and 8), credit cards and ID, cash, keys, a Fisher Space Pen, a microfiber glasses/phone wipe, and a stack of business cards--and I could probably fit a few more things. The mini-wallet is so darned cute and holds spare change or cards or even my car keys, and I can attach my office key to the little tab on the outside of it with a key ring. This bag is professional looking enough for work, and I get lots of compliments. Touch ID on the iPhone 8 doesn't work through the plastic phone pocket, but I set up the Accessibility controls to open the Home screen (you can find instructions online). For the iPhone 6, you can still click on the Home button and then type in the passcode. I carry one phone in the clear pocket and put the other inside the bag. I also look forward to using this bag while biking or hiking! I have other WaterField products that are still going strong after many years and now I'm so thrilled to have a phone carrying case/EDC bag that isn't going to fall apart anytime soon. Thanks, Gary!

Works well

It fits easily into my jersey pocket and I can’t tell it’s there. Excellent access to my iPhone X screen - I have full functionality.

Consolidating stuff helps

Does what it says. Well thought out design. I like that the phone is in one compatrment with a transparent cover. There is room for tubes, CO2 and tire levers and a Blackburn minipump. Finally a separate compartment for cards, money etc. and a small flat multitool. Fits in rear pocket. I can now get buy without a saddle bag. I still use one for a second tube and to flaunt the Rule that says it is not cool to put a saddle bag on a road bike. But this case from Waterfield is all you need.

What are the Velominati 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 Cycling Ride 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 Ride 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.

What brand is the pump you used in the video?

We’ve had quite a few questions regarding this very small pump. Happy to say it’s the Blackburn Mini Pump. Enjoy your ride!

How do you suggest I clean the leather?

Actually, we suggest not doing anything. Part of the beauty of highly distressed leather develops as it gets used over time— with rain or getting bumped around. Leather conditioners will darken and alter the leather, maybe not something you desire. If at some point you want to condition the leather - we suggesting using Mink Oil. This will darken a bit at first - but will keep the leather very nice. You can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit with a hair dryer and your hand. Any leather discoloration or marks are straight from the actual hide itself; it's part of the character of the leather. That’s how you know it’s the real thing. Each hide has it own look; it's unique just like you. With naturally tanned leather, there's always going to be a bit of character on it that's hard to control. It's one of the reasons we like it so much, you'll always be getting a one-of-a-kind bag.

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.
