StarStarStarStarStar Favorite bike bag

Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: high


Waterproof, comfortable, fits a lot of stuff, particularly when you leave it unrolled (for groceries)

Use it everyday for commuting and for weekend trips.


Waist strap is not useful. I cut it off. Fixed.

Not outside pocket for quick stashing of small things.

Other Thoughts

I love it.

StarStarStarStarStar Sleek and all-purpose

Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: average


Decent capacity
Great weight balancing
Comfortable with heavy load
Simple design
Totally waterproof
Comes with inner pouch for storing small items like keys, pens, etc.


Wish it was a bit wider, as at the moment I can't fit my dslr in very well with other items...
Roll top direction is different than the other ortlieb bags. So it's backwards, which is not a huge deal, but I think the direction on other bags is better.

Other Thoughts

Great, all purpose bag. I wish I had had this bag while I went to school.
