Givi EA109 leg wallet, £19.40
Time tested: Three months/3500 miles
What’s good? This leg wallet is a fantastic answer to bulging pockets. If you don’t like the look or feel of a bumbag and don’t want the restriction of a rucksack then a leg pouch is the answer. Two adjustable straps keep the bag in position on your upper leg, clipped in by two sturdy buckles. The bag is a perfect size, measuring 170x110mm, for storing your phone, wallet, keys and a chocolate bar or two. It has one main compartment with an internal pocket and a front pocket too. It feels like a quality item, it’s comfortable, easy to fit and has breathable mesh on the back to stop your leg from sweating. It comes in handy on commutes and riding abroad as it saves unzipping my pockets and searching for cash at toll booths. The convenient pouch keeps everything neatly in one place, plus it’s great to not have my phone and keys dig into my stomach all the time.
What’s not? While Givi offer a waterproof version for £23.53, this one isn’t, which only makes it suitable for sunny Sunday rideouts and riding through Spain. But that doesn’t stop it from being a useful bit of kit, especially for less than £20.
