trek soft shell bottle bag

Have you ever wanted to carry your spare tube and tool kit inconspicuously? You don’t want it in your pocket, and you sure don’t want an ugly seatbag attached to your beautiful bicycle. What do you do?

Well, you can get a bike repair kit that fits in a container that fits in your water bottle cage! If you take short trips and don’t require two bottles of water, you might like this solution.

5 Bottle Cage Tool Storage Options

Here are five options for stashing your gear in an extra bottle cage:

Cage Rocket

The Cage Rocket is a plastic container that is shaped much like a water bottle (or a rocket ship). It fits in your bottle cage, has a foam lining, and it has a neat flip-top lid. A waterproof version is available.

Made in the USA.

$11.95 for regular. $16.95 for waterproof.


Topeak Cagepack

Topeak Cagepack gets the details right. Multiple internal compartments. The fanciest option on this list!

(Trek used to make something called the “Water Bottle Softshell Pack” which was a lot like this. But it must be discontinued.)



XLAB Mezzo Cage Pod

The Mezzo Cage Pod stores repair items and other essentials in any standard water bottle cage. Screw top design is waterproof. Multiple sizes available.

750ml capacity and 101g weight with bag. Includes a soft cloth bag to eliminate rattling.



Soma Stash Bottle
