Bought this as my first bar bag. I used it a few times to test out hook ups. I used it yesterday for the 100 mile D2R2 in Western mass. Great volume for tubes, pump, snacks and extra things I probably did not need to pack. And the pouches on the sides… due to the suggestion in the description, I stuffed my gel and bar wrappers in them which was so handy.
The lateral bungees do need to be really tight, or they will slip off my cyclocross/road drop bars on bumpy trails. But I found a way to attach my map/cue sheet pouch that kept the lateral straps in place with no adjustment needed during the bumpy 8 hour ride. That set up also helped prevent the heavy bag from bouncing into my front brake cable… but I’m running old school canti breaks and not new fangled disco breaks.
I look forward to using this bag on long fall rides into which I can stuff extra layers.
Great bag, impressed with quality of construction, good design, including the thick plastic liner that stiffens the bag.
I would be nice if you offered a head tube bar that supports the bag from sagging back and ditch the bungies. Other than that I really like the bag and am happy with my purchase. Thanks
In over 1/2-century of cycling, this my 1st handlebar bag; I am a minimalist and like as little as possible on my bikes. But for off-season rides I concluded I needed warmer clothing sometimes and this allowed me to pack a jacket just in case. A year into ownership, I finally tried it yesterday. Went on easy, the side bungees stayed put over the entire ride (surprised me a bit) and did not add enough weight to adversely affect handling. It does interfere a little bit with riding on the bar tops. Alas, my jacket took up 100% of the bag's capacity; I think the problem is... I need a more compact jacket.
This is a great bag that sits nicely on my Rawland rando rack while still attached to the handlebars. I’ve been looking for something this size for a while and it fits my needs perfectly. My only minor complaint is that the single loop string down the middle makes stable rack attachment tricky.
