Excellent Construction, Lacking Design
- I've used it several times
I was excited to try this brand as Acepac is a Czech company that is little known in the US. My first impression - quality is top notch. The construction is right up there with brands like Revelate with durable materials used. In that respect I wouldn't hesitate to take this bag on on a long trip. Size is decent as well. I got the size large which is longer than many top tube bags. It is taller and narrower than some others with a fair bit of side space taken up my foam stiffeners. It's still rather roomy with a movable internal divider. Access is provided by 2 waterproof zippers along the top with the zipper pulls sewed together so the entire top opens backwards. Mesh side pockets and daisy chain strapping on top give some extra room to secure things. While construction is great, this bag leaves something to be desired on the bike. The velcro straps that secure to the top tube and stem are movable to fit many frames however since they are not sewn into the bag itself, the bag tends to slide side-to-side which is quite annoying. The zippers are the other problem - since they are waterproofed they are quite stiff so opening the bag is fine but closing it takes 2 hands - not something you want to do while riding rough terrain. I plan to give this bag another chance and maybe make some modifications - it has potential to be great but needs work.

Update - after some use I'm liking this more - the zippers seem to be getting a bit looser with use, and with proper placement of the front strap at the top of the spacer stack it is slipping around less. I will probably replace the straps with something more rubberized.
