The ultimate seat bag for cycle touring adventures.
The Viscacha seat bag from Revelate is the go to seat bag for travelling cyclists. With its trusty weather-resistant roll closure, the bag can be loaded with anything between 6 and 14 litres, meaning it can be used for anything from a long Audax ride, to carrying as much as you need for a lightweight unsupported tour.
Many kilometres of riding on and off-road have gone into finding the best solution to fixing these large bags securely. Once the Viscacha is strapped to the seat post and saddle using the robust velcro and saddle rail straps, the bag is super stable; barely noticeable on the back of the bike.
The useful loops on the topside of the bag also help with strapping additional items – perfect for those bits of kit you need to access regularly, or need to dry out.
For more information and an idea of what touring kit fits in the bags, have a look at the piece over on our Journal: Revelate Designs.

This is a big ol’ seatbag, perfect for taking on cycle adventures of all kinds. However, this means your bike needs these clearances for the Viscacha to fit: a minimum of 24cm clearance from saddle rails to top of tyres and a minimum length of exposed seat post of 12.5cm.
