Looks Good. Works Medium.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This bag looks good but doesn't work all that well. It is pretty waterproof thanks to the sealed zippers. I didn't test the shiny, insulated lining with my heated, Louis Garneau-designed filet-mignon lunch, but the cargo area was just a tad small. The four-point velcro straps are much more secure and faster than the two-strap versions that you have to thread under the whole rack. The helmet carrier holds the helmet, but you have to use the shoulder strap to carry both the bag and the helmet strapped on. You can't really use that helmet-holding mesh as a handle, either, because of its elasticity. The material did rip a little on the back panel, too. The Blackburn EX-Trunk Bag had a carrying handle in place of the helmet holder that was convenient and it had a shoulder strap, but it was so wide that it would never stay centered on the rack. If you don't need too much space, and you don't mind using the shoulder strap to carry the trunk pack with helmet attached, you should check this out. The helmet doesn't cinch too tightly, and you can probably just clip your helmet to your courier bag or even the trunk pack itself more easily. The side pockets, both the zip and mesh are pretty thin and not so usable, respectively.

Write your question here...I am look for a bag for my bike that I can use to commute to work and be able to fit my military uniform and shower stuff in. Would this bag be able to accomodate something of this nature?
This bag should be more than able to accommodate your belongings. With water resistant fabric, your clothing will stay dry on your commute to work
