CarraDry is Carradice's new welded-seam, waterproof luggage range. It's all very Ortlieb.The Glentress is the SQR seatpack in the range - front and rear panniers and a bar bag are also available. As its name suggests, the Glentress makes a nod to off-road use. Because its 5-litre capacity is fairly long, the bag helps keep your bum dry.
Sometimes the simplest things can spoil an otherwise perfect tour, for example, leaking seams in your panniers or trailer. This dry bag provides a simple solution to this common problem.
This is the daddy of seatpacks, with a capacity of five litres. It's as capacious as many bar bags and not far short of a saddlebag like Carradice's Barley.
This 6.5-litre bag is compact, but still roomy enough for the essentials. It'll easily swallow a puncture kit, spare tube, tools, a few snacks, your wallet and a compact camera. The click-and-go mount is excellent, super easy to fit and very sturdy in use.
In C 184 we described Carradice's 5-litre Prima Maxi saddlepack as the daddy of seatpacks. It isn't: this is. It's essentially a deeper version of the same bag, but made out of rainproof cotton duck with a drawstring and buckle-over lid closure.
