The Backcountry Food Pouch mounts to either side of the stem for easy-access to ride food, a water bottle, tools, or other riding or bikepacking essentials. Dimension Polyvant VX21 waterproof fabric makes up the body for a lightweight pouch that is extremely abrasion- and tear- resistant, and it uses Hypalon, adjustable, carbon-friendly straps to get a grip on the handlebar and stem. A yellow liner improves contrast so contents don't get lost on the bottom of the pouch, and they can be secured inside with the one-finger bungee cinch to seal off the top.
Regular: 6.3" height x 2.4" - 3.5" tapered diameter from bottom to top. 0.8 L capacity. Claimed weight is 55 g.
Extended: 7.5" height x 2.7" - 3.9" tapered diameter from bottom to top. 0.8 L capacity. Claimed weight is 100 g.

Provides readily accessible space - attaches securely without swaying
Two velcro-type straps (one of which can be re-located in different positions) near the top of the bag for attaching to stem & handlebar a web strap at the base which can be attached to whatever is convenient (usually the head tube on a road bike)to provide stability.
Elastic cord to closeopen the top - simple to operate on-the-go.
Does not hold a huge amount - I use two (I find difficulty in accessing all the rear pockets of jersey on-the-go as advancing age is perhaps limiting right arm flexibility),
Works well from my perspective (but do not have experience with any other brands) - marked down to 4-stars for value as shipping to Canadian address is expensive
