When it comes to bikepacking or touring, there’s an art to finding the right combination of cargo bags and organizing your gear to optimize convenience and comfort for you, the rider. North St. has revised a few of their bags for 2024, including two sizes of panniers and a trunk bag. They’ve also announced an all-new handlebar bag.

The brand’s former ‘Adventure Micro Pannier’ has now been split into two smaller and larger models called the Adventure Micro and Adventure Macro Panniers. Their Roll-Top Trunk Bag has also been redesigned with a better top opening and a more secure bike attachment. Finally, the new Handlebar Pack offers convenient storage for small items you wish to keep close at hand.

Handlebar Pack:

An all-new item from North St. is the simply named Handlebar Pack. The pack’s sleek and simple design offers a 2.8L capacity. The Handlebar Pack is made from EcoPak fabric (a 100% recycled sailcloth), and includes a stiffener panel to hold the bag’s shape.  

6” Nano Voile straps and a shock-cord stabilizer attach the pack to your bike, and D-ring tabs make it possible to add an optional shoulder strap for convenient off-bike carrying.

As for storage, the main pocket features an internal organizer and a key clip. Additional internal pocket add-ons are available to further divide your cargo, which attach via hook-and-loop. One clever touch is the rider-facing mesh pouches that hold items within view and at easy access.

The Handlebar Pack’s dimensions are 9” x 5” x 3.75”, and it weighs 7.2oz. North St. is offering five standard in stock colors (Ocean Blue, Coyote, Teal, Blazer Orange or Black), plus eight more made-to-order color combinations. MSRP is $95.

Adventure Micro Pannier:

The updated Adventure Micro Pannier boasts a streamlined design with a 14L capacity. North St. has redesigned and improved the hook-and-loop strap system that attaches the bag to your rack. The system includes a bottom compression strap that loops through your rack to ensure a secure attachment. North St. says the Adventure Micro Pannier should fit nearly any rack available.
