Bikepacking kit, which I'll be posting on the blog over the coming months, as I prepare my kit choices for the 'Coasts and Cols Tour'. I decided starting with one of the smallest and simplest, yet very useful pieces of kit, seemed logical. The Overboard Waterproof Dry-bags and Pouches, were an obvious choice…
Roll-top waterproof bags are a great way to keep things sealed, separated and safe when you're travelling. They certainly aren't a new item of kit for Bikepackers, but they are super useful. The collection of mini dry pouches from UK brand Overboard Bags, as well as their multi-sized multipack of larger bags, are ideal.
The Overboard kit is well made, and fantastic value; providing a stripped-back, minimalist approach. These dry bags are no exception. The multiple colours and sizes make them ideal as grab-bags for valuables, tools and small essentials; to stop contamination between different kit, and avoid smaller objects being lost in the depths of your pannier. The larger sized bags, are ideal as sleeping bag stuff-sacks or clothes bags; keeping them dry, clean and protected.
In a world of big packs and cavernous touring panniers, little aids like these are great for keeping tour kit dry, safe and easy to find.
