This bicycle handlebar bag features all the options and a built in raincover; great, inexpensive and fully equipped cycling luggage. Includes a clear view map lid, large main compartment, 3 outside pockets, detachable shoulder strap, front and side reflector and raincover. Sturdy Cordura(R) nylon construction with beefy zippers takes the abuse of road riding. Mounting system is simple to install and allows quick attachment/detachment of the bag for traveling ease. Klickfix(R) system - with the press of a button, the bag clicks into place on the handlebar mount which stays fixed in place. Attachment is the same for all bikes.

Strengths: Quality workmanship, designed well (built-in rain cover too!), ample size, mounting system
Weaknesses: Tempted to carry way too much stuff with you when it's mounted. It holds a ton of stuff.
I looked at bags by Cannondale, Bushwacher, Topeak, and numerous smaller brands. One of the things I really liked is the use of a "third-party" mounting system that allows me to use a variety of other products on the mount. There are no less than a dozen items made to mesh with the mounting bracket, from open baskets to large map-holders. You can even get spare brackets to move your bag from bike to bike in just seconds. The bag makes good use of Scotchlite reflective material and is already one of my favorite accessories on my "ride". Maximum flaming chilis for this one!!
