Fi'zi:k Saddle Pa:k $19.95
Carry what you need without carrying it.
Fizik makes our best selling saddles -- the Aliante and the Arione. It makes perfect sense, of course, that they'd show the same artistry and the same balance of style and function in designing a saddle bag. Fizik's bags have sleek, rounded lines that flow flawlessly into the bottom of their saddles. They're water resistant all the way down to the zipper, they offer nice reflectivity, and they have a tight taillight-holding strap that won't let your taillight droop once you clip it on. One neat detail is that the bag is silver on the inside so you can actually see what's inside your bag.
The Fizik bag is available in two sizes -- we consider them Small and Medium. The Small version is 13 x 6 x 6cm, and the Medium is 15 x 9 x 8cm. Both can fit your bare essentials -- tube, a tire lever, one CO2 and a CO2 head. The Medium one has the advantage, though, of having room for a small multi-tool or a set of keys.
- Secure hook-and-loop strap keeps the Saddle Pa:k from shifting in flight.
- This pack is not ICS compatible
What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Great bike I have 2 of them and some friends have them as we'll. the medium will fit a mountain bike tube and your tools. A small will fit your tools but not a mountain bike tube as well.
I use this for my road bike and it's a good bag. I have the medium, which is able to fit 2 tubes, my phone, and credit cards.
Velcro is where it's at
I tried the ICS clip version of this. Twice. But if you ride rough enough roads or trails, the clip can't hold & ejects the bag. This velcro version is much more secure. The medium size can hold everything you need for super-serious riding. Big enough without being too big. Give it a shot.
Good bag. Poor seatpost strap design
This saddle bag was big enough (ordered a M) to fit two tubes, two CO2 cartigages and valve, a Soma multitool, 3 tire levers, cardboard and hand wipes. Nice looking and a cool shape but the strap that wraps around the seat post doesn't lay flat (velcro) creating an abrasive surface that rubbed my shorts, in turn snagging them. No matter how many times I tried to flatten it during the ride it still flipped up. $190 shorts compared to $20 bag. Definitly returning it.

Will the seat post strap fit around a flat carbon TT bike seat post? Thanks

Looking to hold (1) tube, (2) C02 with inflater, iphone, and tire levers. Is this big enough?
Smaller than I thought
This is a little smaller than I thought. I am able to cram two tubes, a tire lever, a gel pack, my iphone, and some cash in but it is really tight. If space is a huge issue get the medium which is slightly larger and will be a lot better for you.
Nice saddle bag
I'm happy with its size - I'm able to get a Blackberry Tour, 3 tire levers, spare tire, co2 cartridge and a gel pack inside
