I'm a cyclists and I'm tired of having a backpack on when cycling with my kit.


I have a rack on the bike, and saddle bags, however I do not trust just putting the camera into the saddle bags, or a small camera bag inside them, due to the amount of vibrations etc.


Does anyone know of a manufacturer that produces saddle bags for camera gear and lenses, with padded compartments (like a normal camera bag) or a similar rack bag that you would recommend?

Or does anyone just make a customer solution.

I'm looking for enough space for 1 or 2 X series bodies, and up to 3 additional lenses (biggest being xc 50-230)


Any suggestions appreciated

There are some around aside from adaptations of non specific products.


This is an adaptation of a non specific bag




But as you correctly observed any bag connected to the frame will expose the camera to a lot of vibration, depending on the type of terrain that you will be biking on.


So if tarmac is your thing you won’t be exposing the cameras and lenses to too much stress un less you fall of you collide with some hard object.


However I think that the best thing for you is to carry a backpack if you have a lot of gear or alternatively stick to carry one body and one lens worn with a harness on your chest, which might include, or not, a backpack with some more gear and other necessities
