Paper Roads bags in the 'Overland' range are larger and designed for long-haul brevets. At 12cm tall and 24cm long, this top tube bag is designed as a large bikepacking bag that looks good as well. It's 7cm wide at the back and narrows to 5cm at the front to fit various kinds of top tubes while making the most of the space. This bag is also available in a skinny 4.5cm width all around, useful as a rear top tube bag or to fit steel frames. While many other top tube bags tend to flop side to side, the Pilot laces up to the stem with shockcord to prevent the problem. 

For colour selection, see Fabrics & Colours. Full payment including shipping will be requested upon completion of your bag.


  • $145 each for either width options, pick your own colour panels

Top Tips

For bikepacking, what you put in your top tube bag is personal preference. Some people eat from it, while others store their repair kits inside. Amy uses an Overland Pilot for bikepacking for its larger size and she uses it to store a jumble of small items that will get lost in a framebag or saddlebag, such as: puncture repair kit, spork, Swiss army knife, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, head torch, bike lube etc.
