Endura roller kit bag £179.99
If you like to keep your riding kit well organised when you travel, you’ll love this bag from Endura. Open it up and you have four easy-access compartments. The main one swallows enough clothing for a big week away, and contains three smaller pockets for gloves, eyewear and whatever else you want to keep separate and easy to find. On the other side, you’ll find three more zipped compartments, which are ideal for your helmet (although a full-face won’t fit – you’ll have to use the main compartment for that), shoes and riding kit. If you don’t want to compartmentalise your gear, the walls between the sections can be removed.
Externally, the construction has been well thought out. The corners are reinforced, the material is robust and the buckle fasteners are neatly recessed, out of harm’s way. It’s a nice square shape too, which makes it easier to pack into a car boot. There’s also a handy pull-out mat to keep your feet dry when changing after a ride. Large, robust wheels and a long handle make for easy wheeling, whether you’re towing it through heathland or Heathrow. Be warned, though – at 5.34kg empty, it’ll eat into a fair chunk of your baggage allowance before you even start packing. There are bigger bags, and cheaper ones too, but the quality of construction and layout make this well worth a look. Seb www.endurasport.com
