Has anyone used these at all? If so where did you purchase them from - I've checked Universal and Price Point and I'm not finding them there. If not, what has anyone used for easy access food on an endurance race? Thanks.

As you probably already know - they're really popular with triathletes. You might want to check some tri-specific stores.

I picked up a knock-off at a bike shop in Lake Placid after the Ironman (I didn't race it - just spectated). They are available is several sizes - the medium seems to be about right. If you order online, make up a dummy from the measurements to make sure you don't buy something too large/small. I've only used in really long road rides so far. They are not super easy to open while riding - might be difficult on anything rougher than a jeep trail.

I use them too

I too use them, pretty nice way to carry some more food that's easily accessible. Great place to stuff a partially eaten bar in between bites.
Here's a picture of mine stuffed with about 800 calories worth of Jelly Belly Sport Beans prior to the KTR.

Just Google them. I too picked mine up from a Tri store.

I use it not just for food. It also carries by battery backup for my Edge 305 for those races that last over ten hours.

I use mine all the time for my long road rides. I load in fig newton, chap stick, and for really long rides I use an APC USB battery back to power my Garmin Edge 305. I use a retractable USB cable to connect the battery pack to the Garmin. The USB cable comes out a small hole in the bag I made.
