ProsWell made, fit the rack well, good capacity.
Bought two of these for my grandkids' Christmas (don't tell them!!) so they can carry waterproofs and lunch on longer bike rides. they fit well on the rack and the fold-out side panniers are useful for extra capacity if you pick up anything on the way. Essential for the bike rack to have pannier support rails though to stop them contacting the wheel.

Proseasy to attach, versatile
This is my second of these bags, I needed a bag for another bike. It is large enough to carry everything I need on a day ride, and the drop down panniers can be used in emergencies ( I don't think they're robust enough for regular use). The tab at the back is useful for attaching a rear light.
A good sound product

ProsVery easy to fit. Versatile.
Easy to fit. A very well made product its versatility only let down by the small side pockets. If the the fold down panniers are not required consider removing them from the side pockets. I put two pieces of exterior grade foam under the bag to stop rattles on poor road surfaces. Goog fitting for rear light.

Consside pannier hooks and elastic irritating
Proscompact but holds enough stuff
Really useful commuting rack pack that fits any rear rack. The drop out sides are really good for waterproofs and even hold my d-lock with no problem. The elastic strap on one side came loose but i sewed it back on no problem.
Not bad at all!

ConsBase needs to be stiffer. Zips failing after 4 years use
ProsUseful pockets and expansion zip.
Generally a good bag but let down by its soft base which allows the carrier frame to impinge on the contents (a camera) otherwise it has a convenient distribution of side pockets etc. Sadly, after 4 years of regular use, the zips have become temperamental occasionally opening uninvited!
Very Pleased

ProsGood size, good fixing straps, well made
I bought this for my folding bike, a Dawes Kingpin (Dahon frame) with a supplied back rack. Heel strike on back panniers is a perennial problem with folding bikes, so a good size rack bag is the answer. With its versatile fixing straps I was able to secure this bag to the rear of my rack, avoiding any heel strike at all. It fits my large lock and chain, my spare tubes, tools, a light rain jacket, and a pair of waterproof overtrousers. I have yet to use the drop down pannier bags.

Constop draw string better elasticated
Prosspace and rack fastening system
Well made, good value. Size is perfect for longer day rides or serious Audax riding. Side pockets good size and the expanding top is a nice feature. Practical and adaptable fastening system should prove robust.

Proslightweight, sturdy, high quality, raincover, shoulder strap
It fits nicelly on the narrow top of my Tubus Logo rack. The design is very nice and looks excellent on my Thorn Sherpa. The four plastic feet must be removed if your rack is narrow, but it is a very easy task. It has a raincove on the rear pocket, nice side pockets and a mesh with elastic cord on top to secure a raincoat. The interior is large and expandable and the overall quality is very high. It has a removable and nice carry strap too, so you can take it with you easily.

Prosfitting, quality, cheap, design, size
It fits nice on the narrow top of the Tubus Logo rack, with the four plastic feet removed (very easy task). It is very light but seems very sturdy and with high quality textiles. All zippers are fitted with elastic cords for easier pulling with gloves. It has plenty of space with nicely sized side pockets and a mesh top with elastic cord to secure a raincoat. Velcro fitting is strong, secure and simple.

ProsGreat commuter bag, lots of extra, top quality build
My first rack-top bag that has actually been big enough to fit a day's clothes in (just!).
Plenty of room in side pockets and all the wee extras- rear light loop, pump loops, newspaper holder on top(that's what I use it for!- just excellent value
Good All-Round Rack Bag

ConsBase material may not be too durable
ProsSize, layout, features, practicality
Useful bag with good spaces/s and features and practical layout. Has 4 small feet on the bottom which I had to remove as I have a narrow profile (Tortec) carrier. These feet were exactly the same distance apart as the top rails of the carrier. Removal was easy and left only a small hole which was easily sealed using a glue gun. Slightly concerned that base of bag and pockets are made from a thin vinyl type plastic that I think might crack or wear? However, this is a good value and practical bag which comes with a shoulder strap and even a hi-viz poor weather cover.
Improvement On Previous Carradura Top Bag

ConsNone
ProsGood value, well thought out. Improvement on previous model
Bought this to replace my previous Carradice CarraDura top bag, falling apart after many years of constant use. This bag is a better shape - the tall, slimmer pockets don't droop like the previous model.
Attachment for rear light and top attachments are also welcome improvements.
Velcro attachments : simple but hard to beat.
Questions & Answers (8)
Are there 4 fixing straps at each corner of the bag
By
06 Sep 2019
Further to my earlier question if the fixing straps go from side to side under the top of the rack this will not be suitable for me. If the go around the rails at the for corners of the bag it should be OK. Unfortunately non of the pictures show the underside of the bag.
Hi
The straps on the base of the bag are in each corner & wrap individually around the rack so it will be fixed at 4 points in the corners, there is also a fifth strap in the middle of the bag as well if required.

Can I use this with an ebike conversion with a rack mounted battery
By
05 Sep 2019
With a rack bag where the fixing straps go under the rack rails from side to side I can't get the battery in. I need a bag with 4 fixings at each corner
We would have no way to confirm without testing it.

Thanks - 06/09/19
How quick is the fixing and removing
By
07 Apr 2019
to fit this to the rack do you have to thread the straps through each time and then buckle them onto the bag, or do the straps stay on the rack and you just clip or unclip them onto the four buckles?
Hi
Thank you for your enquiry. This bag has a set of straps with stealth clips on the end that help attach it to the rack, every time you need to remove the bag you will have to unclip these, with this bag the clips are attached to the bag itself & nothing stays with the rack.
Kind Regards. 16/04/19

Hi there,

Yes a waterproof cover is included.

Could You Check The Dimensions?
By
04 Jan 2017
This would be to fit on a Fujin SR recumbent - the rack is only 28cm long with no leeway on this (light bracket one end and flange on the other). Your dimensions differ from other sites which go along with the Carradice site itself (http://www.carradice.co.uk/bags/rack-packs-stuff-sacks/carradura-rack-bag) at 28cm x 20cm x 13.5cm. Clearly the bag to buy if they are right, but not if your dimensions are correct
Hi,

Having just measured the bag again our dimensions are correct for the overall size of the bag. It would appear the measurements Carradice have provided are the internal dimensions of just the main compartment.

Thanks.
Dimensions
By
29 May 2016
Hi, Please could you confirm the dimensions of the bag with and without the top extended and the side bags please
Hi,

The width and length of the bags don't change it is only the height. The standard height is 24cm and it is 29cm tall with the top extended. The fold out panniers extend around 17cm lower than the base so you can add this to the other heights.

Thanks.
Is This Compatible With A Surly Nice Front Rack?
By
02 Feb 2014
Hi,

I'm afraid the rack top space on the Surly rack is much shorter than rear racks and therefore means that the Carradice rack top bag is too long to be fitted.

Thanks.
