Miss Grape Bud Handlebar Snack Pouch review

Snacks are an important part of any long distance ride. Is this the perfect way to store them?

Miss Grape Bud Handlebar Snack Pouch
Cycling Weekly Verdict

A brilliant handlebar snack and accessories pouch from Miss Grape that's been really well thought through. An extra mesh pocket on the outside is perfect for small items like rubbish and the padding protects valuable items. Although a good idea, the fork strap could wear frame paint if left unprotected, and I found that it was secure enough without it. At £45, this is a great value option for bikepacking or everyday use.
