If you want something that’s small, compact and no too obtrusive to carry a few nick-nacks in whilst you’re out riding, then this Oxford XW1 waist bag might be what you’re looking for. It simply fits around your waist and is secured by a clip-in buckle attached to an adjustable waist strap; a padded back section is fitted to give additional fitting comfort. The waist bag is black, but this is supplemented with reflective logos and piping to make you more visible in the dark.

The bag has a one litre carrying capacity, divided up into two pockets; the smaller one is good for carrying small items like keys, or change for tolls and car parks, etc, etc; the main pocket gives the flexibility of being able to store larger items, like a pair of visors, a mobile phone or – in my case – a camera. For someone like me the XW1 waist bag comes in pretty handy – especially if I’m out on a test ride or photoshoot; it has an endless multiple choice of uses without being too bulky.
