I love the material of the bag, it's definitely very water resistant if not waterproof. One thing I like about it is that I can fit my Big Agnes Tiger Wall tent poles inside it for bikepacking trips. I have the medium size inside a 54cm frame so they just barely squeeze in there. Good Velcro, everything seems good quality for what you pay for.
What I like about this bag lightweight, waterproof, separate compartments, zipper works week enough to access the interior while riding, you can get your water bottle in and out without much trouble (at least on my Grail).
What could be better the mounting straps need to be longer. If you have a carbon bike, chances are you have an oversized down tube. The straps barely fit around, and if you have a large frame, you might not be able to secure the bag to the seat tube.
Youll want to have internally routed wires, too.
Great product! Found it here for a great price! Will fit all your essentials for a full day ride, while still giving you room in your frame for one, and if you have a short one, two water bottles. The loop on the zipper makes it super easy for one handed opening and closing. Bright yellow interior helps visualize what you need to find! Definitely recommend!
We purchased this for our recumbent tandem to carry some tools and a large external battery to power an iPhone for all day navigation. It has held up well. It is water resistant, but an all day rain will get some moisture inside. Thus, anything that must stay dry should be in a plastic bag as well.
I bought this for my cross bike as I had limited storage riding Canada to Florida with just rear panniers. I use it for training rides now. I put a second one on my disc trucker, took off the front racks and will do the CDT in August with large rear panniers, apidura frame pack and small handlebar rack. I ride an XL frame.
I ride approximately on average 95 miles per-week. I use the pack to carry my pump, rain jacket, spare tire and repair kit and a snack. I know it sounds like a lot of stuff, but it all fits well with plenty of room for my legs and even for my tire irons (spoons) ,-)
The pack keeps its shape, as long as you do not over extend the sides, it fits well and protects your stuff. It beats wearing a back-pack. The sales representative was very knowable and helped me pick out the right size for my 54 cm frame.
I have a compact style road bike and it fit the frame, I used this to replace a bike bag that was on front of handlebars. Also still allowed easy access to dual water bottles on frame below. I use this to store keyscell phone and also extra tubes and minor first aid items.
I purchased this frame pack for larger excursions. Have not used it yet, but it does fit my frame perfectly. I have the frame pack in small which is on my gravelallaround bike all the time. I use the small pack as it holds all the stuff I need on most rides easily and leaves a bit more room to pull out my front water bottle. These packs are stylish, well made, and light. The small frame pack weighs less than any seat bag I know of and holds more. It also means a tail light can go anywhere.
