Review: Waterfield Designs Gear Pouch

Back in September, I reviewed the Eleven Vélo Ride Pouch on the blog. The leather wallet proved to be a neat and very well made jersey pocket kit carrier, which safely and smartly houses all your smaller ride essentials. It impressed me so much, that it fast became part of my Every Ride Carry.

The Ride Pouch was a collaborative project, between Australian brand Eleven Vélo and San Francisco based Waterfield Designs. Although the pouch is really the only cycling specific product that Waterfield Designs have created to date, the quality of the product was so good, that I began thinking how many of the other great looking pieces in their range might be utilised in the two wheeled world. The Gear Pouch range looked ideal...

I know a lot of enthusiast cyclists, and the majority of them are also almost OCD organisers. I'm not sure why, but perhaps the desire to have a finely tuned and efficient bicycle, also carries over into their everyday lives; so they end up organising everything, to be as efficient as possible. The Gear Pouch range from Waterfield Designs is ideal for the efficient organiser.

The pouches are available in a variety of colours and sizes; the one I have on test here is the Medium size, which is large enough to take an iPad mini as well as a wallet, headphones, passport and a few other small items.

Each pouch is made of a beautifully smart waxed cotton canvas, and finished with two robust locking YKK zips. Inside, they have four dividing pockets and a textured golden fabric lining. Frankly, they look superb, and if there was ever a manly "man purse", this is it.

I use mine for travel, as it makes a neat and easy-to-grab holder for valuables and travel essentials; it saves you having pockets crammed full of phones and wallets as you head through security. Similarly, it is great to take to meetings, and big enough to house a small notebook, business cards and a wallet, to save you having things bulging out of your pockets.

Overall,  this is a beautifully designed and executed purse. Ideal for safely storing small pieces of kit, and making sure everything is kept together. It would make a great gift for any ultra-organised cyclist!

  1. I Love Waterfield products - bags like the Muzetto work well when biking to work. I use the Staad backpack on my bike commute (holds laptop and other stuff) but looks great in the "office environment too".
    As you point out, the Ride Pouch is a "must carry" item and looks so styling' too.
