r.c4743528wrote a review of Tate Labs Bar Fly Hopper Saddle Bag on October 18, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been using the hopper for a few weeks and I like nearly everything about it. Rather than stuff my man purse in the center jersey pocket I use the strap to secure it under my saddle. This setup great during long winter training rides when I want to carry extra food or clothing layers in that pocket.
My review would have been a 5/5 but....
When I first saw the hopper at Sea Otter Classic it was accompanied by a very nice coffee bag, made from a material similar to reusable grocery bags. That's what I was expecting with the hopper. Unfortunately the little paper coffee bag that came with my hopper was rubbish.
In the attached picture you can see the out-of-focus manpurse I'm carrying in my hopper.
Other than the pouch letdown, this strap is getting the job done. I especially like that it affixes entirely to the saddle rails and there is no velcro around the seat post to scuff up the inside of my bibshorts. Let's hope the strap system lasts and lasts.
