FAQs

The 1.7 litre V-Mount Pack has been specifically designed and shaped to work with the geometry of a typical road or gravel bike.

Both 1.7 litre and 3 litre V-Mount packs are suitable for use on a typical mountain bike - it just depends on how much extra kit you want to carry (see Packing Guide below).

We do not recommend fitting a V-Mount Pack directly to the forks of your bike.

We do not recommend fitting a V-Mount Pack directly to the arch of your Rack or AeroPack.

Absolutely. We designed the V-Mount system around the dimensions of most common cargo straps such as Voilé. We would always recommend using the straps that are supplied with the V-Mount Pack as they have been designed specifically around use with bike tubing.

Yes. The soft rubber boot covering the V-Mount is designed to conform with frame tube shaping so will cover a boss if required. Each pack is also supplied with four rubber boss covers that can be used instead of the existing bolt in order to increase grip.

On paper a V-Mount Pack is heavier. However when you take into account the additional straps and cargo cage required to mount a Cage Pack the actual weight difference is very minimal.

We created the V-Mount pack primarily for riders with bikes without additional mounting points on their frames but also for mountain bikers who require a little more weatherproof storage. It is aimed primarily for use in and around the main frame of the bike and requires no additional parts to attach, unlike a Cage Pack. We would recommend a Cage Pack over a V-Mount Pack anywhere you would normally fit a cargo cage, i.e. on forks and the arch of a Tailfin Rack/AeroPack.

Capacity is measured by filling a test sample with water and setting the closure to the minimum setting required for complete waterproofing (two folds of a roll-top closure) and then measuring the volume held.

The Packing Guide images below will give you some idea of what can fit in each size. For example, the smaller 1.7 litre has dimensions that will fit a standard 750ml waterbottle, or you could fit a lightweight packable waterproof, multitool, inner tube, pump and trail snack. The larger 3 litre version has dimensions that will allow a 1 litre Nalgene style bottle to fit or you can fit a standard size gas cannister, stove, cook kit and even some food.

Media Reviews

For those who choose to bikepack on rigs that are completely bereft of bonus eyelets, and the ability to fit a cargo cage of some sort, the V-Mount pack is definitely an appealing solution to carrying extra gear. It’s durably made, 100% waterproof, and considerably kinder to your paintwork than Velcro-mounted alternatives.

Tailfin’s V-Mount bags nicely fill a gap in their lineup for folks that are lacking dedicated mounting points. The pack is remarkably stable and well thought out, with materials built to last years on the road.
