Cafe Bag UL
Weight: 65 - 72 g Capacity: 2.0 - 4.0 L
Even if you’re not willing to admit it, half the enjoyment of bike packing is the time when you aren’t riding – the stops! Whether it is for the fantastic view, the well earned rest or the vast quantities of food. If you are trying to keep weight off your back (if you’re reading about bikepacking bags, then you probably are), there are usually a few things you’ll want with you during your stops, so a bag you can quickly remove from your bike and sling over your shoulder is very handy indeed!
Integrated attachment system
The Cafe Bag UL is designed to work together with the Torpedo Harness + Dry Bag UL, Torpedo Combo Bag UL or on its own. It comes with straps to be able to attach directly to the handle bars by itself and includes a detachable shoulder strap and jacket carry loops.
Bag construction (UL)
Lightweight yet durable - quality made in New Zealand.
Cuben Fiber has been used as the main outer fabric, as it is light, durable and waterproof.
Detachable Shoulder Strap
Allows the Cafe Bag to double as a shoulder bag.
Mesh Side Pockets
Elasticated side pockets with a stretch mesh - these are great for stashing bits and pieces while riding, particularly useful for snack wrappers!
Water resistant zippers
YKK Uretek water resistant zippers are used throughout.
Highly reflective logos keep you visible from all directions at night
Fabrics & Colours (UL)
Choose from 3 external fabric colours for a unique setup that matches your bike or contact us for a completely custom look.
What to put in it
Great for those valuables and items you want to keep close at all times (and not leave with your bike!) or information you want quick access to during your stop (eg. wallet, passport, phone, keys, maps, route description, camera, etc.). Side mesh pockets are great for stashing snack wrappers (or your toothbrush!) while riding.
How to pack it
The Cafe Bag UL can be packed on or off the bike. It detaches quickly and easily for refuelling stops at cafes and supermarkets or when you need to make a quick stop and leave your bike. Packing options are made easy with three pockets: a main pocket with double ended zip extending around the top side for easy access, a second external pocket on the front and one internal pocket for valuables (complete with key hook).

Robo-Kiwi Ultra Light is our bag solution that goes all-out to create the lightest possible version of our products, while still maintaining functionality and durability. Excess weight is cut wherever possible. We use a hybrid Dyneema composite outer fabric, smaller buckles, narrower straps and velcro, lower density foam inserts, etc, etc.
The ultra light solution isn’t right for everyone. If you want bike bags so durable that you’ll be able to pass them down to your grandchildren, there are plenty of bag manufactures to choose from. If you want bags that have been shown to go the distance while saving significant weight over a standard bike packing setup, Robo-Kiwi Ultra Light is for you!
