Every year, more and more people are going off the grid and further away from civilization on their bikes. Whether a day, week, or months at a time, you need to haul a moderate amount of items, and one of the lowest (center of gravity), accessible and somewhat protected spaces is within the bike’s frame. Blackburn’s newest addition to the Outpost family of bags, the Outpost Frame Bag, offers a multitude of flexibility for most traditional frames and adventures alike…..

The Outpost Frame Bag is constructed of a water-resistant material to withstand the elements and has an expandable lower section for added space. It’s designed so you can fit more in if you need to, or as you take things out, you can cinch it up to keep items more secure. It even has several mesh and slip pockets inside as well as a main compartment baffle to help keep everything organized. Onc really cool feature is the port for a hydration bladder so if not too packed, you could you choose to keep the water-weight down low and off your back.

The Outpost Frame Bag fits to almost any “diamond” frame through its Bag Fit mounting system. You can place the mounting straps at various points on the bag so to better fit your frame ensuring a secure and “as rattle free as possible” fit.

The bag comes in medium (18 inches long), and Large, (20 inches long). Both bags are 2.5 inches wide and have the same expandable mounting depth of 7 to 11 inches so not to skimp on space. The medium version retails for $59.99 and $64.99 for the large.
