Basil waterproof


With the Urban Dry, Miles and Noir bags Basil introduces a unique line of bags to the market.

The bags have been developed in such a way that your things stay dry even during heavy downpours, without any concession to the look of the bags. Basil once again proves that fashion and function can indeed go hand in hand. The water resistance of the new bags was achieved with a combination of waterproof material and a watertight construction.

  • The water resistance of materials is described in terms of the water column. This is the amount of water (in mm per cm2) that the material can withstand before it starts letting in water. The material can be classed as waterproof with a water column of 800mm or better. Various materials used for the new collection go up to a water column of 100.000mm!

  • A waterproof construction consists of the finish of the connecting seams and the closures of the bag. All the Basil waterproof bags feature welded or taped seams and have a folding or roll top closure. In addition, the Miles bags have a waterproof interior bag and zips.

Because of their materials and construction the Urban Dry, Miles and Noir bags meet, among other things, the IPX3 norm, a frequently used standard. However, Basil went one step further and has drastically increased the test requirements and ‘translated’ them into the duration that you can cycle in the rain in different types of showers. Result: with the new waterproof lines of Basil bags you can cycle in a normal rain shower for up to 24 hours before your things get wet! This way Basil gives you even more freedom to determine when and where you take your bike.

Light rain 4 days, Normal rain 24 hours, Heavy rain 8 hours, Downpour 3 hours

Note: the level of water resistance is partially dependent on the following factors: the intensity of the exposure to water, the load carried in the bag(s), the drying time between the exposures to water and the age of the bag. For a further explanation about waterproof see page 69.

1 With the exception of the Noir double bag, which complies with IPX2

Basil Urban Dry waterproof

Urban Dry: commuter

"I take the train to work every day cycle to the station. So I need a good bag for my laptop, mobile, a spare cardigan etc. that will keep everything dry as a bone if it rains. If I wait for the shower to pass, I'll miss my train, so I have to go out in it. With the Urban Dry that's no problem! And it's so handy that I can park my bike and take my bicycle bag into the train with me."

Urban Dry: shopping/multifuctional, single bag / double bag

"I don't have a car, I do everything on my bike. It's great, I don't miss driving at all living here in the city. The only thing that can be a bit of tricky is the weather. Cycling in the rain isn't much fun at the best of times, but it's even worse if all my stuff gets wet in my bicycle bag. So I'm pleased with the Urban Dry, everything is kept dry and I'm amazed every time by how much I can fit in."

Noir: commuting, school run, business

"When I went straight from work to pick up my daughter from school recently, she had a beautiful drawing for me. Luckily this was kept dry despite the torrential downpour we had to go through, thanks to my Noir bicycle bag. Now the drawing is up on the fridge!"

Noir: social and recreational, city bag

"I'm very pleased with my city bag. When I'm heading out in the evening, I cycle into the city with my bag in front of me, where I can see it. And it's great that the bag is waterproof, my phone is in it among other things, but it's equally important for it to look good and chic. That way you can hop off your bike and head straight into the restaurant, no problem!"

Basil Miles waterproof

Miles: long-distance recreational, complete series

"We are keen cyclists and regularly cycle long distance in our spare time, sometimes including an overnight stay. You can sometimes get caught in a rain shower. The good thing about the Miles series is that I don't have to worry, the bags are 100% waterproof. And they look good too. That gives you a good feeling, everything is under control!"
