Gilles Berthoud continues to make the classic Sologne handlebar bags. With more than 50 years experience, their bags are sewn in France by hand from waterproof cotton, and edged with leather. These traditional materials work well, keeping our editor’s bag dry during a 50-hour ride in the rain in Paris-Brest-Paris.
Berthoud Cell Phone Pocket
Keep your cell phone protected from rain and yet easy to access. Made from the same canvas as Gilles Berthoud’s famous handlebar bags, the cell phone pocket attaches to the Velcro flap that usually holds the stiffener (which most riders remove anyhow).
Slip your phone into the pocket, where it is safer and handier than it would be in your jersey pocket. With the cell phone pocket, you won’t have to fish around the bottom of your bag every time you take a photo for Instagram or other social media.
A metal D ring provides a handy place to hang your key.
