Update: The Ripsey is back and better than ever! The new version is lighter (under 10 ounces with the Dyneema Composite Fabric drybag), larger (8.5 liters capacity) and compatible with dropper posts (with the Wolf Tooth Valais). Currently we have dry bags ready to ship in purple, red, gray, black and camo. Other colors will take a few days to sew and seal before your order ships.
The Ripsey is our seatbag for dropper posts and full suspension bikes. The Ripsey is also great for shorter riders and smaller loads – with 8.5 liters of capacity and only 5 inches of required tire clearance, it will fit shorter riders better than any bag on the market of equivalent size.
The Ripsey comes with a tapered drybag made with Xpac or Dyneema Composite Fabric. Seams are sealed with Seam Grip for the Xpac version and tape for the Dyneema version.
We think this is a better solution than a welded drybag. We find that Xpac has a better real-world durability than weldable fabrics because the coating is protected from internal abrasion. The bag will still keep out rain, and will even handle submersion for short periods of time.
