For some, saddle bags may seem difficult to organize, bulky, noisy, and just extra weight. Jet Roll wants to convince riders that these issues could be solved with the Sidewinder pouch. It’s able to store repair essentials to help get you back on the road/trail, yet small enough to easily be stored in a jersey pocket. Or – Jet Roll’s newest tool wrap also has a unique way of attaching to your bike…

The Sidewinder comes with 6 pockets that can hold tire levers, a tire boot, patch kit, new tube, CO2 cartridge/head, multi tool, and spare cash. Obviously, it can hold just about anything that will fit like any other bag. The roll is securely closed with a gem button, and can be wrapped with the included tube compression band.
Alternatively, the roll can mount to the seatpost, seat, or other packs with the compression band or included leather strap. The smaller design of the Sidewinder should keep it out of the way of your legs while pedaling, though that likely will depend on how much it’s filled. The Jet Roll rubber band can also be used to hold the Sidewinder to the seatpost, but you’ll have to remove the post to install the rubber band first. The Sidewinder is on sale in four different colors (red, black, grey, blue), and priced at $45.
