I’d needed a way of carrying my GoPro and Drift camera kit on press launches, but didn’t want to lug a rucksack with me as we constantly stop for photoshoots. The Kappa RA306 is perfect – featuring five zipped pockets, I can cram suction ups, mounting brackets and more into the tough 840D polyester pouches. There’s also an elasticated lace retainer on one of the pouches, which can hold a 500ml bottle of water when you’re off the bike.
The main pouch has a net pocket inside to help organise your kit, and a water-resistant zip. However, I wouldn’t want to keep my wallet or anything electronic in it if heavy rain was likely, as a thorough soaking sees water creeping inside – it’s a shame there’s not a pull-out waterproof cover built in.
Fortunately, press launches tend to be in the sunniest parts of Europe, but even in the UK, the RA306 – with its comfortable padding and quality construction – offers a brilliant way to carry those extra essentials you just can’t ride without.
