Strength:

Roomy for an under the seat bag

Weakness:

quick release clip on bag does not stand up to colder temperatures. The clip snapped rendering the bag useless.
If the clip mount on the seat broke I could, at least, replace it. The bag mount is a large plastic piece with 4 rivets. It's a lot of money for a design that can not take the cold temps.

Until the touted "quick release" clip is redesigned, stay away from it if you are anywhere north of Orlando Florida!

Schwinn - at least when the velcro straps break after years of use you can sew new velcro to the bag. All components of the bag have withstood the test of time. The only down fall was the size of bag.

Strength:

Great size for under the seat. I can fit everything I need for solo riding with the pack in its smallest configuation.

Weakness:

Today in 20 degree weather, the quick release clip did fail while I was going over a large log, followed quickly by the velcro strap, which was my fault for leaving it hooked on with just the strap after noticing the clip broke.

Even though the clip failed, I think the size and design of this pack is good overall. I may buy another one since they are not too expensive and jsut be more careful not to load it up so much in very cold weather. I am not surprised that the plastic clip was not designed to handle so much weight and forces in such cold weather. If I had removed it before the velco broke, it could have been repaired simply by replacing the mount part that attaches to the bike. Overall, I would recommend it, just be careful how much you put in it on really cold rides.
