Revelate Designs 14L Terrapin


*** We are accepting backorders ONLY on the Black 14L Terrapin, not the other colors.



Completely redesigned

The 14L Terrapin® System is a modular, waterproof seat pack with a removable drybag allowing for easy off the bike packing. In it’s third generation, the bag improves on stability, ease of use, and durability.

Adopting features from our award-winning 8L Terrapin® System, the redesigned 14L Terrapin® System features Revelate’s exclusive Indie-Rail attachment system. A progression from conventional bikepacking bag mounts where the rail straps are fixed to the top center of the bag, with Indie-Rail each saddle rail is cinched down hard to the sides of the bag. This feature virtually eliminates side to side bag sway without the need for external hardware. This is combined with a rigid internal structure and active cam buckles to prevent straps from slipping on rough terrain.

New features include an external plastic bottom sheet which protects the bottom of the bag like a fender. Stiffened on all sides, a composite internal top sheet provides a solid and stable platform for the strap points and transmits the vertical load to the seatpost connection. An external webbing and loop system house a bungee and provide additional easy access external storage.

    Excellent customer service

    I can't speak much to the item I purchased as I have only had an opportunity to use it once. That being said, it is good quality and did the job and looks great in the blue color which is what I was holding out for. This item was backordered which I knew when I ordered it in April, however I wasn't expecting quite so long a wait for the item to be delivered (July). I do have to say that Campfire Cycling was extremely responsive and super prompt to help me when I inquired about status of the order a couple of times. I was really pleased with the service because of course there is nothing they could do about the back order time frame. They also were quick to offer me an alternative color in the same item if I needed it sooner. Thanks Campfire Cycling! I will definitely be ordering again from your site.

    The only way to go

    I've always loved the holster style seat bags. This is my second one, this one is for another bike packing bike project. I noticed this one was a newer design that I was unaware of, but all in all it's an awesome bag and from the awesome folks at Campfire Cycle. The waterproof 14L bag with pressure relief valve works awesome for my Michigan unpredictable weather. A big thanks to Campfire Cycle for keeping me updated on the product, since it was out of stock when I ordered it.

    Revelate Design Terrapin 14L seat bag

    I recently purchased this and have only had the chance to use it once so far. I own two other pieces of gear from Revelate and this is the same superb high quality build and design. It attaches easily and securely, no side to side waggle. The dry bag is easy to get in and out. I love the fact you can fold the holster down and use this at about 1/3 the size, great for day rides
