This is a well-made, quality product. I like that it has a low, sloping profile, unlike most tall and boxy bags. I may regret that some day, if I have too much stuff, but for now AI am digging it.

Good size for Van supported rides to hold wet weather gear, and lunch. The Velcro straps that suit ANY rack are the clincher to buy it.

A great bag. Rating:

I really like this bag. It's big enough to hold my tools, a small pump, spare tubes and wallet and cell phone and still has room to spare. It has sealed zippers and a bright yellow rain hood hidden in the front. It really looks a lot nice than the square Transit bag that I used before. Really cool.

Awesome trunk bag - VERSATILE! Rating:

My #1 go-to bag for day rides and commuting. Easy on-off mounting to a rack is a plus. Holds a change of clothes for work (except the shoes which stay at work!), iPod, wallet, along with my lunch. Lots of space for day rides, like a couple of extra water bottles, any food I don't want to pack in my jersey, sunscreen, camera etc. And adjustable top straps allow one to expand/contract the pack to cinch down the load.

Great product Rating:

Wonderful and versatile product. Sturdy, yet light. Lots of places to put things with easy access zippers on both sides of the bag. The Velcro attachments give you a variety of ways to attach this to your rack.
