Surprisingly simple to use,…

Surprisingly simple to use, quite simple to install and stable on the bike. The capacity allows you to carry clothes dry for hiking for several days. Combine it with a waterproof bag sold separately for 20E. You can quickly take it away so as not to leave it on the bike at the lunch stop, for example. I also recommend a bag on the handlebars that can be opened while riding (lunch card such as bars...

The harness is very easy to assemble and stable.

The harness and the bag stuffed to the max with me traveled 350 km in the mountains in various conditions and terrains. Nothing was loose, nothing was moving sideways, there was no need for a stabilizer under the saddle, the rubber and straps are 100% functional. I can recommend this purchase, I have already bought the 2nd set for my wife

Almost perfect

Waterproof, easy to put in place, the whole thing with the waterproof bag is a little heavy

Review after 6 months of use

I received this harness as a gift together with its bag in May last year. I felt very comfortable straight away, the possibility of removing the bag itself without removing the harness is a real gem. The materials are first class. Now we come to the sore points: - The lower part is made up of a plastic tongue which maintains rigidity and stabilizes the bag itself, too bad that after only 3 outings it broke at the base. I don't think it's a manufacturing issue as I'm not the only one who's had this happen; - After about 6/7 outings, the stitching on the top of the bag let go. Unlike the previous problem, I believe that this is a manufacturing defect, unfortunately when I asked to repair it using the warranty I was told that the damaged part is subject to wear and therefore it is not possible to take advantage of the warranty. What can I say, the product is valid, it's a shame that any possible damage it may suffer is seen as "normal wear and tear". Therefore I advise you to buy it and keep it in the closet if you don't want to ruin it...

Should be built with lighter materials

I use it together with a waterproof bag for commuting to work and so far I am completely satisfied. I have also tried the same type of bag from another brand, but this one is much better. After tightening, the bag holds very firmly. I can only recommend.

Very good saddle bag

I bought the saddlebag attachment with a matching saddlebag and I'm very happy with it! I can now take my work clothes or tennis gear with me without a backpack when I'm out cycling. The purchase was absolutely worth it.

Excellent purchase

The bike bag harness was easy to fit, however you do need 100 mm of clear saddle post. I like the ease of fitting and removing the luggage bag from the harness, a good value bag

Excellent system

It is easy to attach. The buckles and straps are of excellent quality and keep the carrier and bag firmly in place for the duration of the ride. If you take something out of the bag or add something to it while riding, it's very easy to adjust the tension and regardless of how full the system is, it stays very stable on the bike.

It really works

Used on the Camino De Santiago, for 3 days. Perfect hold

Very robust but heavy harness

Hello, I have purchased the harness, it is good, it looks very robust, maybe too robust, but I am thinking of returning it, let me explain... The harness is too heavy for the use of light bikepacking that I want to practice, that is, I think that It is not ideal for short, quick outings. Compared to another harness, which is somewhat more expensive, which must also be said, weighs 180 grams more. Ideally, Riverside should manufacture a line of lighter products and bicycles for those who want to travel shorter distances or in a faster way. I also say this for the touring series bikes, they are very robust. I recommend the harness for bikepaking cyclists who prioritize robustness over weight.

Excellent, not seen better in terms of quality/price!

This product definitely deserves 5 stars! I have used it several times for bike packing over several days (around 450km per trip) and the system is super practical: easy to put on, easy to take off. The bag does not move behind which is very appreciable when going uphill. Perfect ! I haven't seen better quality/price!


The bag attaches easily. What's great is that the base can stay on the saddle, and the whole thing doesn't move too much while riding.
