* not always the easiest to buy for, is he?!
VeloPacs are ingenious - where once a leaky ziplock bag might have vainly attempted to keep valuables clean, dry and safe on ride, now these rule.
Tucking securely into a back pocket, they'll hold a phone, money, ID, cards and even a snack. And they'll keep it all dry and protected even in driving rain.
And the designs and colours are so stylish they could be the making of any outfit.
"Excellent addition to my cycling and my life! Use my pac when out cycling, fits in most cycling top back pockets, also fits a large phone (Samsung s10 plus), keys, money, card and bar."
