This looks like a nice, sturdy bag to carry your essential kit. My only complaint is about the velcro strap. It is no longer sticking and seems to be falling apart after about 8 months of use. Normally, the strap forms a loop around the bag while attaching it to the saddle rails. The problem is the bag keeps sliding out of the loop formed by the strap and toward the end of my ride, the bag is dangling about 4 inches from the saddle rails. If it weren't for that, I would recommend this bag.
