Strengths:    Works for a little while....

Weaknesses:    And then spews contents when zipper bursts open. Also the snaps are always popping open. (Who is the idiot who designed this thing?)

Bottom Line:   
Would you like to lose your wallet on the trail? And then have to backtrack 10 miles in a desperate search? You too can do this!

I will no longer buy REI's overpriced bike supplies.

I put sheet metal screws through the snaps to keep them snapped. It helps, I guess, though they ain't snaps anymore. But for goodness' sake, it is better not to buy it in the first place.

Strengths:    A lot of space to store or carry stuff for rides. good zippers and reflective tape which helps night riding.

Weaknesses:    The button that hold the pack on to the saddle rails are a bad design. When the buttons let go the pack just kind of swings back and forth while riding, what an annoyance. I also noticed that these buttons are bent from repetitive use.

Bottom Line:   
This pack does a good job of holding what I need, but I find it really annoying that the seat pack does not stay attached well. It never falls off because their is a strap back up, but I will have to replace it sometime.

I would advise against purchasing this pack.
