Review – Craft Cadence Small Waterproof Handlebar Bag

Review Craft Cadence Small Waterproof Handlebar Bag
Waterproof handlebar bags are a great way to carry valuables and accessories on your ride when you have filled your jersey pockets, or you are wearing a casual tee. The Craft Cadence Waterproof Handlebar Bag is a superbly made example and has performed admirably throughout my testing; much as the Craft Cadence Waterproof Backpack did a few years ago.

Made from a durable and fully waterproof coated tarpaulin material, with welded seams, the Craft Cadence Waterproof Handlebar Bag uses a simple clam shell closure design to keep its contents safe and dry.

The bag boasts 3 litres of storage capacity in its waterproof interior, with an internal mesh pocket for small item organisation. This bag's capacity is enough for ride accessories, spares, a waterproof jacket, lunch, and even a camera; all essentials to take with you on a ride.

The bag attaches to the handlebars using two robust belt straps, and a further optional third strap is supplied that can loop round the headtube of the bike. The three point system creates a secure and stable bag, and it is suitable for road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrids or folding bikes.

My only cautionary comment on the Craft Cadence Waterproof Handlebar Bag is that its elongated design means it may sit rather close to your front wheel if you have a very low handlebar stack height/headtube—this is likely only a consideration for those on racing road bikes with a low front end though.

A final noteworthy feature is the reflective detailing and light loop on the front of the bag. The bright yellow colour also obviously boosts visibility to oncoming traffic.

Robust, fully-waterproof, secure, and built to last. The Craft Cadence Waterproof Handlebar Bag is the perfect handlebar bag for day trips, commuting, and daily errand runs.
