Nice product, great for long days on the bike
This bag is pretty sweet. The material is really nice and heavy, the construction seems really durable, and it has a nice pre-formed shape that keeps it from collapsing in on itself. It's been great for long gravel or adventure days where I want to carry a bunch of extra food, and also have space for a vest and arm warmers or a light rain jacket. I have also managed to stuff 4 full beer cans in there! The loops on the front are also nice to hang small items off, I keep a couple small velcro straps and a couple Voile straps in the bag just in case.
Then only detractions for me are the straps that hold the bag to the bike. The two webbed pieces that go around the handlebars actually work well but you have to be really sure the plastic latches are 100% closed. Like all the way closed. If one is even just a smidge loose, it will soon pop open and allow the bag to partially fall off. Definitely route them so the latches are on top of the bag if one does come loose, mine were routed the other way and one fell off on the trail during my first ride (but I did turn around and was able to find it). If they are fully tight though, then they are up to the abuse of rough roads. I also think cord they supplied to go between the bottom of the bag and around your bike's steer tube was inadequate. I ended up replacing it with a 6 Voile nano strap and that has been a much better and more secure option (and it looks a lot better too).
