Long search

Finally, found a rear rack trunk that not only fits my rear rack securely without the flopping around but attaches quickly without the proprietary hardware of many rack trunks available. The internal pockets and divider help to contain small items without the annoying rattling around that is standard with most trunk bags

Perfect size

Mounted this tapered to the front. Moves bag closer under seat. Has lots of room for all day tours. I can carry gear to be self sufficient.

Excellent design, workmanship and materials. Far superior to any other rear rack bag that I owned in the past. Made more in the style of a backpack (compression straps) and as tough and flexible.

Perfect Size for Day Rides


Reviewed By: Don on 10/12/20

The Tail Rider is the perfect size for day rides. I can easily fit a pump, spare tube, multi-tool and tire levers, lock, lunch, and light jacket in it. The two side pockets are easily accessible for keys, phone, and wallet.

Outstanding Gear


Reviewed By: John Fleckner on 8/24/20

This is among my very favorite bike accessories already. I am impressed by the material quality, the high visibility of the yellow version, the well functioning exterior zippers, and the rain cover. I am especially pleased with the secure mounting straps: they give a solid grip on the rack and are quick and easy to attach and detach and they have worked on two different racks.
