For some people (including me), the iPhone is like our soul. It’s the virtual replica of us containing our identity, memories, important numbers, essential apps, maps, and so on. As we can’t imagine leaving them behind when embarking on a ride, it pays to invest in the best bike saddle for iPhone.
You may have that old pouch or backpack for stashing your essential stuff like credit cards, keys, cash, and even a patch kit, but it’s not the ideal place to keep your $1,000 iPhone. A smartphone that expensive demands a specially designed bag to keep it well protected and accessible at the same time.
Most professional riders avoid carrying too many things on their bike to avoid adding up the total weight that may compromise speed and riding comfort. So, most of the saddle bags are designed to accommodate your iPhone and a few essential items that you may need during a road trip.
We know that with so many different brands and models around, shopping for a bike saddle bag is not easy. So, our team has reviewed a plethora of bike bags based on various factors like weight, size, space available, ease of use, weather protection and so on.
If you don’t have the time to read till the end then we recommend that you choose ROCKBROS Bike Seat Bag (learn more) for road trips. We love that it is sturdy, expandable, waterproof, and comes with a manufacturer’s lifetime warranty which makes it a risk-free investment.
For mountain biking, we suggest Topeak Aero Wedge Velcro Pack for its unique aerodynamics wedge shape. It has good reflective strips for visibility and a well-built exterior for rough terrains.
A serious biker needs a serious-looking bag and the BV Bicycle strap-on saddle bag fits the bill perfectly. This is the extra small size belonging to the BV Y-Series that also includes a large, medium, and small size. However, we have chosen the smallest size for carrying the iPhone and other stuff to ensure that we don’t increase the weight and still have the necessary items easily accessible at hand.
Although extra small in size, the saddle bag has sturdy and rugged exterior and soft interior to hold your iPhone, iPod shuffle, iPod Nano, and so on. It has an inner mesh pocket to store smaller items like snacks, keys, money, and so on. It has a zippered opening for quick and easy access, plus a taillight on the outside to enhance visibility at nighttime. It also comes with a sturdy elastic strap to securely hold the bag to the bike frame, preferably under the seat.
