A little bit tricky to install the wire part but worth it for the overall stability of the bag. Been using this day in day out over a month-long tour, probably filling it over capacity and testing the waterproof cover more often than I’d like! It’s kept all my important bits and bobs safe - and dry, due to the frustratingly tight but incredibly visible rainproof ‘shower-cap’!
The transparent map compartment has proved its worth time and again, and the handy shoulder strap means I can easily keep my valuables with me anytime we stop.
What a great bag for a mere £25, thanks Decathalon!
The screws supplied were of such poor quality that the alan key head simply rounded off despite using the correct size key. We had to buy new ones from the local hardwre store. The steel wire that is used to loop around the handle bar is not long enough so once again had to buy a replacement. The bag itself ok but fixing the bracket a nightmare
Thank you for your comments regarding this bag and notably the fittings. I fully appreciate the level of frustration you must feel.
It seems that you are not alone in giving such feedback therefore I will promptly forward your review on to the design team at b'twin.
Of course, if you wish to return it to us for a refund or an exchange, please do not hesitate to do so.

Holds ample for its use...but difficult to cut the cord that helps attach it to bike
Found this to be very useful for touring, for carrying valuables that can be quickly taken off the bike. Having the map visible all the time is a great bonus.
Secure mount, good size, demountable, map pocket
Tricky to demount; map pocket not waterproof
Simply a great bag does what it say on the can
Good easy to order and collect great staff
