Kids’ bikes are great. But, what do most little bikes lack? Provisions for water bottles! Mostly due to the tiny frames lacking the real estate to mount a cage that would actually be accessible, parents are often forced to find other ways to keep their little ones hydrated – including carrying the bottles themselves.
But for those looking for a fun way for their kid to carry their own water, Po Campo just released a line of kid-focused products to carry everything from bottles to laptops.
The Water Bottle Feed Bag takes cues from similar designs for adults, and puts a functional bottle holder on the front of the handlebar. Technically, you could use the three velcro straps to attach it to just about anything (even a scooter)- as long as it doesn’t interfere with pedaling or turning.
The bag features a flat and round bottom so that it stays upright when off the bike, as well as a wrist strap to make it easy to carry. In addition to fitting most kids’ water bottles, the bag has room for snacks, because, who doesn’t love snacks?
Offered in two colors, ‘Blast Blue’ and ‘Let’s Go’, the Water Bottle feed bag is priced at $20.
For more handlebar-mounted storage, the Speedy Handlebar Bag attaches with simple straps and converts to a crossbody bag.
Inside, the Frog Green lining makes it easy to find things and there is an ID label and key ring. Po Campo has even added a molded micro-grip closure to the front pouch that won’t snag clothing you want to stash inside. D-rings on the back of the bag also allow it to be attached to the backpack below, or anything with a clip.
Again offered in the two colors with big reflective accents, the Speedy Handlebar Bag sells for $35.
Finally, the Backpack Pannier is somewhat self-explanatory. It’s a kid-sized backpack that doubles as a pannier.
The simple pannier system allows the bag to be attached to most racks, and smart design uses the reversed shoulder straps to provide hi-viz accents when it’s on the bike. There’s also a big reflective panel for increased visibility.
Inside, you’ll find room for all kinds of goodies including a small Chromebook laptop. There’s a hydration port if you want to stick a bladder in there, and there’s an external bottle pouch, loops for clipping things onto the outside, and more. Like all of the line, the bag is offered in two colors, and is priced at $50.
You can pick up any of the bags online at Po Campo’s site, or at REI.
