Having looked online elsewhere at many different bike storage options of questionable size, delivery and customs charges, I was pleased to find a very good selection in stock in the local store. Being able to try the various options with a pacamac, cafe lock, money, keys and freezer bag (it’s not waterproofed), I decided on this one.
It was only in Majorca on fitting it to a hire bike that I found that the straps are (very long!) removable and repositionable around the circumference, making it easy to orient and adapt to any bike. Also the side pocket was really useful for keeping credit cards, room card and keys safe, even when opening for access.
1 star deducted as not described as waterproof.
I bought this frame bag to enable me to go for longer rides without needing a backpack. It's a good size and can hold a pump, spare inner, tire levers, multitool, puncture repair kit and a phone and debit card in the second pocket. It also looks smaller on the bike than it's capacity would make you believe for those conscious of how their bike will look with a frame bag attached. So far it's been great for the price paid.
Works well, I used six cable ties instead, looks better and secure.
Carries phone, keys, pump, tool, 29er tube and snack bar. Ideal!!!
If i keep this as is shown in the instructions under the frame near the saddle, the loose side faces downward so if I open the zip all the contents will fall out. Also, it hangs down so its clashing with my bottle in the bottle cage. Please tell me I can return this product cause I am not going to be using it.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The saddle bag is to be fixed on the top bar and the seat post. If it is fixed in this manner the zip will remain on the top and the contents will be slanting downwards. Please do try this and if you find that the bag is still not helping you, do return the product to the store in saleable condition.
I remain available for more questions.

This is a good quality bag with two compartments. One compartment is wider than the other, both have padded sides. The zips have two sliders which allows the opening to be positioned as you wish to suit the mounting orientation selected. With the side opening you need to be careful when opening the bag to avoid the contents spilling out. This bag is not particularly suitable for opening whilst you are cycling along.
Bought as my current pouch couldn't accommodate new phone.
Hook'n'loop for holding keys
Awkward trying to unzip whilst riding
Excellent bag for sporives and longer rides as it holds phone, wallet, energy bars and a banana but fits snugly on the crossbar just behind the styem making it easy to access. Described as not waterproof but withstands a heavy shower and keeps contents dry.
Fits easily, carries lots, showerproof
NICE BAG BUT COSTLY
