Single Zip Main Compartment
A single zip frame bag allows easy access to one large compartment. Ideal for smaller frames and for those that just want a simple bag.
Optional Map Pocket
Want to keep some items seperated from all the stuff in the main compartment? The addition of a map pocket allows you to seperated thin items such as a phone or maps from the main compartment, allowing you to easily reach them if need be.
Multiple Attachment Options Available
Bolt on, Lace up, Large Velcro straps or Daisy Chain webbing with removable and repositionable double sided Velcro straps. Make your bag suit your bike and needs.
Optional H20 Port
Want to carry a water bladder or pass light cables into the bag? The H20 port provides a way of passing a cable or tube from the outside of the bag to the inside.
Want a Blue and Red one? Maybe Purple and Orange? I am not one to judge your colour choice. Click here to see the current colour options.
What's the process?
All frame bags are custom made to fit each frame. In order to get the perfect fit I need a template of the inside of your frame. I have made hundreds of frame bags so I may already have a template for your frame. Get in touch if you have a common make and model to see if I do.
If you are local to Wellington pop into my workshop and I can make a template for you. If you are not local or can't get to the workshop then making a template is easy. Click on the link below to see the instructions.

Fabrics and Materials
All frame bags are made out of a mix of materials, all hand selected each for a specific purpose.
- 1000D Cordura Nylon forms the perimeter of the bag as this is a strong material and ideal for the attachments. This fabric has a PU coating on the inside and a DWR coating on the outside making it very water resistant.
- 500D Cordura Nylon for the side panels as this is a slightly lighter material than the 1000D but still more than durable enough for the job. This fabric also has a PU coating on the inside and a DWR coating on the outside making it very water resistant.
- VX21 X-Pac, LS42 Liteskin, Ecopak EPX200 and ULTRA 200 can also be used for the side panels. These are lightweight laminate fabrics and have a slightly different look to the 500D Cordura. Ideal if you are looking for a lightweight bag but don't want to compromise on strength. Water cannot penetrate this laminate fabric.
- 70D Coated Ripstop Nylon in bright Yellow is used on the inside of the majority of bags to give an extra layer of weather and wear protection. This also make the contents of your bag a lot easier to see.
- Paskal moulded water resistant zips are used for all openings. These have a PU coated tape and offset teeth making them very weather-proof. These are a tough zip and have a nicer action compared to a traditional coil zip.
- All webbing is Nylon military spec and all hook and loop is Genuine Velcro brand.
We love Stealth bags. They fit the bike well and the zips take a battering. Great colours and good use of space on the bike. Thank you.
So if you have got this far you are probably serious about buying a stealth frame bag. You have probably done the maths and realised they are not cheap BUT after my first trip with one of 800km and 15,000m of vert I promise you they are good value for money. Regardless of the rain and mud (lots of mud) my perfectly fitting frame bag continued to swallow all the stuff I threw at it and a little bit of chain lube kept the zippers sliding freely. If you are tossing up the options I highly recommend the charging / hydration port and the high vis stripes are a no brainer. Enjoy
Fits perfectly, well constructed and has all the features I wanted. Was definitely worth the wait to have something custom made.
I made a template as per instructions and waited. The bag arrived as ordered and on time. It's the best bag I own. Quality and fit is excellent, I will be ordering more bags in the future.
Excellent product. Bought a frame bag after previously buying a half bag and stem pouches. Well made with good quality materials. Very easy to make template and send away and receive the exact product that I want, without compromise. Great service and fair price. Thoroughly recommend to anyone considering Stealth products.
