Strengths:    Completely rain and splash proof.
Plastic support on inside keep it in shape for easy loading and retrieval of gear .
On both sides inside, there is a firm mesh slot i use for 2 sports bars and screwdriver+electrical tape.


Weaknesses:    I have the size Large , but really wish it were about 5 cm longer.

The closure system looks like , but dioes not function like a roll top dry bag.
There is only enough material beyond the internal structure to close the mouth with a velcro strip , roll once ,
and secure with the 2 buckles facing forward.

The benefit of the closure - as opposed to a zipper , i gather is a longer service life and water tightness.
As all my previous saddle bags have mounted with some plastic fixation to the rails ,
it came as a suprise to me - that the strap mount allows the bag to slide all the way down to the s.post quick release.
The small ruberized collar on the bags post strap - is insufficient to prevent this.
So the Waterproof fabric thus has soon showed some contact wear .

I have remedied this so far with holding the bag up as far as possible , and wrapping the post with self vulcanising tape + one zip tie beneath the post strap fixture . - Btw. i tried electrical tape - but it got pushed down the post .



Bottom Line:   
All and all - this bag is hand down the best i've had so far .
Tools stay nice and shiny and the bag itself even deflects some mud , should i have left without a rear mud flap.
Though not much larger than my previous bag , the slick inner surface lets me slide and arrange the contents with ease.
The outside is much easier to get clean from a muddy ride , than the coarce grained condura of the earlier bags.

Now if Topeak could just make a XL version , with a screw clamp for the seatpost - this bag would perfect.
