Dyneema Cycling Pouch Wt. Shaved: .7oz

I shaved a tenth of an ounce off the bag.

The goal is to create the lightest cycling ride pouch available but maintain the essential durability characteristics and provide more than just a plain envelope.

In a previous version of this cycling bag the outer shell was constructed from two pieces so we could eliminate a full lining but still have an interior divider.  One side of the Dyneema fabric is shiny and the other is a matte/flat finish so the divider was constructed from a folded piece of fabric so the shiny surfaces were faced together (hidden) and the matte finish was the visible surface.  After deciding I didn’t mind exposing both sides of the fabric, the divider no longer needed to be two pieces or folded and no longer needed to be sewn into the bottom edge of the cycling bag, yet it still provides a compartment rather than just a simple partition.  Removing the necessity of the bottom seam means the shell can be constructed from a single piece of material. Eliminating the seam at the bottom of the bag eliminates about 1/2″ of fabric (seam allowance on both pieces) and also the tape to cover the raw edges of the seam.   Since the seams are taped to hide raw edges and not expressly to guard against moisture, one less seam means less moisture can potentially seep through the bag and is therefore even more water resistant.

A perfect case of “Less is More.”

Dyneema Single Zipper Cycling Pouch

My new favorite material is extremely light weight and absolutely water proof.  Dyneema is a composite with an outer layer of Mylar.

This single zipper cycling pouch is less than one oz.  That’s pretty light.

The model shown here is unlined with a folded panel, trimmed with orange binding tape, used to create an internal divider so you can keep your phone on one side, money, ID and a credit card on the other side.

The internal seams are taped for a finished appearance but not taped with waterproofing in mind.  Also,  the zipper is not constructed to be completely water proof, however, for all practical purposes this cycling pouch is extremely water resistant and will keep the contents dry.

It’s designed to fit a phone comparable in size to the iPhone6 with a slim case; you know, one that’s not too bulky.  We will also produce a version that fits the “Plus” sized phones.  The zipper opening is 6″ on the model pictured here; YKK with plastic teeth – extremely durable.

This cycling bag is designed to carry your daily ride essentials and keep moisture away from your phone.
