Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

It's a great durable saddle bag. I havent really had to chance to beat it up yet. I did have it hit my back tire constantly when my rear shock fully compressed and you could see some scuffing but, it didnt rip or anything. Easily can fit a phone, keys, extra tube.

The velcro is strong and I appreciate the 3 straps so I dont have to worry about it falling off while I am riding.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Finally got a small tear in the jacket. Was "chimneying" up a rock climb and using my back as a form of friction. Easily fixed it with some Tenacious Tape and were back to no holes and back to totally water/wind resistance. The shape of it when packed into its own pocket really does make a difference when hanging it on a harness. It doesnt get in the way of everything else on the harness like protection and slings. That makes it quicker, and easier to grab that gear while climbing, noticed it a bit at first but, really was thankful for it in the Teton's this past weekend.

I love Pro Bars, still eat them regularly but, its really nice to change things up a bit. Also really fun to cook these together with a group, or your climbing/hiking/whatever partners.

Interesting that many of the recipes are rice based. Scratch Labs informed me that if its oatmeal based your body needs to use water to digest it. With rice, the water is already included, so it doesnt hydrate you but, you dont lose water at least.

If you have any questions, shoot me an email! I'd love to be your gear consultant!
