Joey and Hopper frame bags

PRESS RELEASE: Revelate Designs

Answering the call for carrying capacity in hard to use spaces, are our Hopper frame bag and Joey downtube bag. For bikes with limited room for a full size frame bag, or those just needing more space, the Joey and the Hopper offer creative solutions for extra storage.

Our first true universal fitting frame bag, the Hopper fits most adult sized bikes, and many full suspension frame bags with a vertically mounted shock. This mid-frame fitting zipperless bag was painstakingly developed to work well, whether the bag is empty or full to the brim. With a short length that would make zipper access difficult, We used our design knowledge from our popular Mag-Tank cockpit bag, combined with a decade of tried and true frame bag manufacturing. The result is a single-handed accessible, panel-opening frame bag with an effortless magnetic closure.

Going “down under,” the Joey attaches near the bike’s bottom bracket and is ideal for carrying heavy items, while keeping the center of gravity low. Designed to fit an 8 oz fuel canister, Vargo BOT, Jetboil, or 2L hydration bladder, the Joey is a must have for multi-day self-supported adventures. An intricately designed compression molded foam panel, along the bag’s top, is paired with silicone coated compression straps for a downtube bag that won’t budge on the roughest terrain. A roll top closure allows for easy access while attached to the bike, eliminating problems with mucked up zippers in a notoriously muddy area.

The Joey and the Hopper are sewn in the US and constructed with Revelate’s exclusive VX21 fabric that is two times as abrasion resistant as standard VX material. A full size printable PDF is available to determine fit of the Hopper frame bag on our website.

 It's not real bike packing if you don't have to shoulder your bike. Hard to do with a down tube bag. Confused on what the market is for this.

 I'm sure all the bike packers with custom frame bags that fill ALL it nearly the entire inner triangle of their bikes and include water bladders will be shocked to learn that they aren't "real" bike packers and will go out emediatly and remove those expensive bags so you'll be happy.

OR they will just do like most people who carry their bikes and get their hand in there and pick it up high enough to rest some if the weight on their shoulder, but carry the bike with their hand... And suffer the shame of not being real bike packers.
