I've been using this bar bag for about 8 months now and am overall happy with it. The functionality is great and doesn't affect steering, design is ace, storage capacity is thoughtful, the rigidity of the bag frame is good, materials are high-quality. I'm not going to be looking for a new bag anytime soon and in fact, this bag is partly a design inspiration for a new paint job for my bike :) I like this product so much, I want it to be even better, so here are a few suggestions I have: -My biggest ****** is with the cord system meant to hold your bag in place vertically, located behind the bag and using the daisy chain. I can't loop mine on the stem (as shown in product pictures) due to a Di2 junction box, so I've been wrapping it around the headtube. With this, I've experienced slight paint rub in the headbadge area, the leftover cord loop doesn't have a natural home, and the cord undoes itself on rough descents. A stretchable Velcro strap would've been a more secure solution. -Even though I cinch it tight, one of the Velcro top straps tends to migrate toward the stem (i.e. the bag becomes off-center, see picture); perhaps some grippy layer on the bar-touching strap surface would help? For now, I've solved this by Tetrising all my cockpit accessories (bell, light, computer mount) between the straps and the stem so that the straps remain centered / symmetrical. -The side pocket, marketed as fitting an iPhone, is slightly difficult to retrieve your phone from (iPhone X). Maybe this is just due to the size of the phone, but it pokes out at least a couple inches and is much more difficult to access easily (with the cord) than a jersey pocket. -With an out-front mount, I'm unable to run an under-computer light with the zipper still usable - although that might just be a comment on handlebar bag location in general. The zipper, as some others allude to, can be stubborn when re-zipping with one hand. -Main pocket could use a small internal pocket for keys or any metal edges you might keep in there (bottle opener?) No issues with waterproofing, but I also have only ridden it in mist, not real downpours.
This bag is pretty perfect as a go-to daily ride bag. Holds just enough and not much more, which is just how it should be.
Tried a few other bags like it, none are this refined. Does what it's supposed to, looks fly, easily adjustable. Boom.
Got this bar bag a few weeks ago and I love it. Plenty of space for anything I might want to throw in it. Love the color scheme and the convenient side pockets for a phone/small lock.
