Carradice Super C Rack Pack Review and Pictures

Carradice Super C Rack Pack Review - Overview

If you need a high quality rack pack ( a pannier that mounts on top of you pannier rack rather than at the sides) then look no further than the Carradice Super C Rack Pack. Made in the UK from cotton and built to last it truly is a lovely pice of kit.

I purchased this Carradice Super C Rack Pack to fit on my folding bike (giant conway folding bike), as there is not enough clearance for my heals when pedaling if I use a side mounted pannier.

Carradice Super C Rack Pack Review - Build Quality

I paid £ 60 for my bag from some online retailer, and so I was expecting somthing failry well made, and that is exactly what I got, the bag is bomb proof, and although time is the ultimate test I have a feeling that the bag will last. For those of you who are familiar with the old army webbing pouches, that is the style of construction, built to last for sure.

Carradice Super C Rack Pack Review - Fitting

There are four velcro straps that are used, the rack on the bike I fitted it too was smaller than average, but it fits on very securely no worries there.

Carradice Super C Rack Pack Review - Style . . .

Dare I say it (wince) but this is probably suitable to carry around over your shoulder with the supplied strap. It is a nice looking bag, if you compare it to some of the offerings from ortlieb etc, it has a bit of a nostalgic look about it.
