    Comments about Race Cycling Duffel Bag:

    I've had this bag for two years now, and it's holding up better than any other bike-specific bag I've had in the past. It is well thought out with separate compartments for my helmet, sunglasses, shoes, water bottles and other utility pockets. Everything I need for a day of cycling easily fits into this bag, including bibs and jersey, sun screen, chamois cream, snacks, après ride clothes and more.

    I recommend this bag because of its utility and quality.

    Comments about Race Cycling Duffel Bag:

    Great bag for weekend races - so nice not to have to repack it. Being black, it never gets dirty, esp with my bike gear. Separate external pockets for shoes AND helmets is awesome. Quality and capacity are just right - not to big, not too small, and just the right number of interior pockets. Love this bag!

    Good cycling gear bag but could be better

    Pros

    • Durable

    Comments about Race Cycling Duffel Bag:

    The bag appears to be well made and should last me at least a decade, if I keep it. The overall size is great but the space is poorly allocated for me, the end pockets are too large and the main compartment is too small. There is no internal organization making it difficult to find my wallet, money, and keys and to separate food from clothes from tools. I'd like a zip pocket on the outside to keep things like maps or registration forms handy, which this does not have. A shoulder strap option would have been nice, the back pack straps will work for carrying over one shoulder, but not always ideal. The bottle opener on the strap is a definitely useful and appreciated. The bottle holders are nice, but get in the way of the zippers on the end compartment when loaded, and bottles don't stay in if I attempt to carry as a backpack. For the price, there are a few (inexpensive) things missing on this bag, and there some small design changes which could make this good bag a much better great bag.

      Comments about Race Cycling Duffel Bag:

      So far, I've only used this on overnight and weekend trips. But I absolutely love the compartments, the way it looks, and the backpack straps.

      With my old duffel I used to wear the 2 handles as backpack straps. So the attachable padded backpack straps bring some comfort to my old method that would dig into my shoulders and leave red marks.

      I am a runner and traveler and will be taking this bag to Europe next week. I'm sure that I'll still have only good things to say when I come back.

      Great race duffel

        Comments about Race Cycling Duffel Bag:

        I've been through several race duffels over the years. This is the best I've used.
        The shoe compartment is big enough for two pairs if necessary, and the mesh outer pockets can be used for muddy or wet shoes if you don't want to put them back in the compartment.
        Ont he other side f the bag, the helmet compartment is huge. And the sunglasses compartment next to it is awesome. It's rigid and holds it shape even when the bag is empty.
        The main compartment is plenty big for a fall CX weekend, meaning you have to pack multiple garments for any weather conditions. Also the zippered mesh compartment on the "top flap" is great for the essentials that I leave in my bag all the time (leg warmers, warm up tights, etc).
        Finally, the zippers are big, easy to get a hold of and have course "teeth" so they always zip easily and I am confident won't break.
        I'm a huge fan of this bag.

        Comments about Race Cycling Duffel Bag:

        Bought this bag to keep all bike riding equipment together in car, available when starting rides from various locations. The poorly designed bottle baskets or pockets are a major problem for me. They need to be larger, adjustable, and have cinch cords to tighten up, like on my Northface day pack. A single adjustable shoulder strap would be must more usable for me than the clunky back straps, which I removed. The bag itself is will made, well sized and adequate for all my gear, except the bottles.

          I loved so many things about this bag: the compartments, the ability to carry as a duffle or backpack, the way it sits on my back without killing me...it's actually less physical stress on me than a roller suitcase. Can't wait to travel again!

          Comments about Race Cycling Duffel Bag:

          Great bag. Pockets and compartments well thought out for cycling, racing, and tris. But its the most uncomfortable backpak I've ever worn. I ride 2 miles to work and do a long ride in the evening. For that first 2 miles into the office... The straps were digging into the back of my neck. 10 min of riding with it and it was almost too much. Seems like little or no thought was given to that portion of its functionality

            Like all Timbuk2 products this duffel bag is intelligently designed with lots of compartments, pockets and pouches. It's durable and lightweight too. It's a great back for short and weekend trips or to ferry gear to a campsite.
