I ordered this bag because i was looking for something that would keep my gear organized when heading off to a race, ride, or for traveling with bike stuff in general. As technical bags go, $59 really isn't so bad, even $90 is conceivable. The bag is roomy enough for my shoes, change of clothes, recover food, ride gear, and extras. The only downsides are the side pockets in which they suggest putting your shoes, are not really large enough to easily put my shoes. Also, the bag has a metal insert (flat aluminum piece) that has a curve in it, that fits into a special spot, that keeps the bag slightly bent behind your back. I don't really understand the point of this, as the flimsy back of the pack doesn't hold the shape and is slightly annoying against your back. I would not recommend this bag for lengthy commutes.
