Stealth Bike Bags was founded by myself, Michael Trudgen, in mid 2014.  

MikeI have been mountain biking for most of my life but recently discovered the joy of combining mountain biking and camping, known also as Bikepacking. I soon discovered the need for better methods for carrying my gear. I first made bags for myself and for friends, and then with designs tested and refined I decided to start selling them. 

New Zealand has some wonderful mountain bike tracks with more being made everyday. I thoroughly enjoy any form of adventure and hope to help you on your path to yours.

I produce the bags myself in Wellington, New Zealand. I currently have four specialized industrial sewing machines with countless other specialist tools which ensure a high quality product.  I source the majority of the materials used in production from NZ suppliers. Most of the bags are made out of 500D and 1000D Cordura Nylon fabric. This fabric has a PU waterproof coating on the inside and a DWR coating on the outside making it very weatherproof. If I need something to stay completely dry, I either use a dry bag or a rubbish bag as a liner, just as I do with my tramping pack.

Viewing is available by arrangement in my Wellington city workshop.
