Not Quite Waterproof

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

TL;DR: it's fantastic in the dry, will keep things dry enough, but not bone dry, in the wettest weathers.

I'll preface this by saying these are pretty great. I pack my car's key fobs and house keys in them, along with my minimal wallet (ID and a few cards). They all neatly store in here, which then find their home in the centre jersey pocket.

In the dry, these are almost perfect, with the possible exception that it obviously doesn't breathe, so my lower back is a bit damp after rides. That's to be expected.

What wasn't, really, was how *damp* the contents became after a torrential rainstorm. We misjudged the weather a bit, and on the return leg of our 50+km ride, it was raining buckets. I thought the contents would stay mostly dry, but in the morning, when I took out my key card for work, I found everything was just a little bit damp.

What did you expect

    The brand is known for tough, quality, stylish cycling thingers. This is a solid design and the zipper doesnt break when you shove crap in the wallet.

    Seriously cool, not quite large enough

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

    Will not fit an iphone 7+ with a decent case on it. With a super slim case, you can barely get CO2, tool, etc. in there and zip up. Otherwise, the case is super cool, handmade in USA and very water resistant. It won't fit my phone, but I'll keep it for tools, etc. and maybe even buy another one to use for my phone alone if I decide to get a smaller case....
