Your bivvy bag, your hammock, the kitchen sink… There are no limits to what the beefy Big Papa can carry for you when you’re exploring the most rugged and remote corners of the world (within reason).

At 17 litres, Big Papa is our largest seat pack providing secure, spacious and hardwearing beneath-the-saddle storage.

Constructed from waterproof fabrics and made in our UK factory, Big Papa is made to meet the demands of adventure. It’s also available to your spec as a custom product.

Simple to fit and secure once mounted, Big Papa is at its most stable when attached to the Exo-Rail which reduces sway and increases stability. Attachment is quick, simple and secure with a slide-on, slide-off sleeve; 2 velcro seat post straps, and a stabilising saddle rail strap. If you don’t have an Exo-Rail, you can attach the Big Papa using just the saddle rail and seat post straps.

Roll-top closure and compression straps keep the load compact; external bungee cord is ideal for stashing your waterproofs and flip flops.

"Is it waterproof?"

Although highly weather resistant, this product is not fully waterproof due to its stitched construction. If you are carrying valuables or electronic equipment, make sure to put it in a dry bag.

X-33 Camo Print

X-33 combines the benefits of VX-21 with a Cordura® face fabric. Like VX-21 (also known as X-Pac) X-33 is highly abrasion and tear resistant, low-stretch, and waterproof. The 330 denier Cordura face fabric adds even more abrasion resistance and is treated with a C6 DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating that is easy to wipe down.
