Bruce sent in this mini-review of the Becker Sewing and Design Beerpacking Bag for your perusal.
Tupp Becker at Becker Sewing and Design recently began offering a new and unique bag to round out your bikepacking setup, dubbed the “Beerpacking Bag.” The Beerpacker takes advantage of the often unused real estate on the underside of the bike’s downtube – a perfect place for stashing a few barley pops, of course, but also a number of other odd-shaped things like tent poles, a thermos, a tarp, tenkara rod, and/or other essentials:
Workmanship is excellent – the sewing quality is professional, and the Beerpacking Bag uses a heavy-duty YKK nylon zipper that is sure to last a long time. The bag is contructed of a thicker, rubberized fabric that runs the length of the bag on top, bottom and ends (the high-wear areas) while a tough. but lighter, nylon is used on the sides. The bag is available in a variety of colors.
The Beerpacking Bag is a deliberately simple bag that virtually any bikepacker will likely find a use for. Handbuilt in Fairbanks, Alaska. Becker products are designed by interior Alaskan riders for interior Alaskan conditions, emphasizing bombproof simplicity, because experience has repeatedly proved that complicated features tend to fail at -70ºF. Becker Sewing and Design also produces a variety of other high-quality, custom bikepacking bags (in addition to custom dogsledding bags, camera bags, etc).
