Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Evoc Handlebar Pack BOA is well-made with an easy-to-use design that makes it a breeze to swap between bikes. I was initially unsure about the small 2.5l capacity, but it proved ideal for carrying some extra clothing and providing a place to stash layers once the day's warmed up. All-in-all, it's a great little bag for everyday use.

Attaching a bag to bike is as old as the hills but in recent years the rise in popularity of bikepacking has altered the landscape just a little. Not only has it meant that the choice of bags is perhaps wider than ever before but it also has led to modern reinterpretations of classics such as the giant saddle bag and the handlebar bag

Evoc's Handlebar Pack is one such bag. It adopts the functional design of larger bikepacking bags but shrinks it down so it becomes adaptable for everyday use with both road and gravel bikes.
