Lioness Front Pouch
The Wildcat Lioness is our front pack to run with our Lion harness. It provides approximately 2 litres of additional storage capacity within easy reach of the cockpit of the bike. It features its own retention straps independent of the Lion, avoiding any redundant buckles when not in use. It’s also compatible with every Lion we’ve ever made.
The Lioness is an easily accessible and flexible storage space that provides minimal interference to your riding. Maintaining predictable handling is core to all our Wildcat designs and the Lioness is no exception. It expands our existing handlebar system and complements our frame bag and seat system storage solutions too.

Is it the Lioness waterproof?
We describe the Lioness as very water resistant, in much the same way as most good quality rucksacks are. The face of the LS21 fabric is waterproof, and we use high quality YKK waterproof zip, but, as the main seams are not sealed, prolonged exposure to heavy rain could lead to moisture inside the bag. We recommend protecting any sensitive items in dry bags if wet conditions are expected.
What colours are available?
The Lioness is only available in grey at present.
Will the Lioness work with a handlebar harnesses from other manufacturers?
Yes, it will. It has its own straps to attach it to the handlebar.
Can it be used on its own?
No, the Lioness has a curved shape intended to be used where there is a dry bag around which it can be attached.
Can I use it on its own to retain a dry bag?
We don’t recommend this as it would lead to an unstable load and/or premature wear to the dry bag caused by friction against the frame/ handlebar. We would recommend always using with a Lion harness for maximum functionality.
What capacity is it?
The Lioness has approximately 2.5 litres of capacity, making ideal for storing small generally lightweight pieces of gear; gloves, hat, camera, wind shell, food, map etc.
Will it fit with a Lion on a Jones bar?
Yes, it will. As avid Jones H-Bar users, the Lioness is designed specifically to fit this type of handlebar.
From January 31st 2021 all non-UK sales will be handled slightly differently.
Please read this note if buying from outside the UK.
All our published prices include VAT (UK sales tax @ 20%). If you are buying from outside of the UK, this 20% sales tax will be removed on your basket page when you enter a non-UK shipping address. For example, if you purchase something which is published at £120, when you enter your shipping address, if you are outside of the UK, the price you pay will drop to £100.
It is likely that you will need to pay the sales tax in your country when the items arrive. The mechanism for collecting this sales tax varies by country but in most cases it will be payable to the courier delivering the package. The amount of sales tax you pay also varies by country but in most cases is around 20%. Note that this sales tax is a government sales tax and isn't something that Wildcat ever see or are in control of. In some countries you may also be charged import duty if your order is over a certain amount. The duty rate varies from country to country and from product to product and in almost every case is substantially lower than the VAT rate (approx 2%-6% in most cases we see).
If you are in the EU and purchasing a product that is manufactured in the UK (all of the Wildcat and drj0n branded goods) then you should not have to pay import duty. We will mark the customs documentation with the correct 'Rules of Origin' information which means there is no duty to be paid on goods manufactured or originating in the UK and being exported to EU member states. If your courier or local tax collection agency have charged you import duty, then you should appeal this.
