Handlebar Tote - Indigo

Super cute, but ultimately a disappointment
by Tahoevistagirl on 4/26/2014
Pros: Really nice looking. Decent capacity. Can be moved from bike to bike. Built in key fob, ipad pocket, and three other internal organizing pockets.

Cons: Attachment system is prone to being lost; no way to ride in the rain with it because it is open to the elements (the bag "closes" with one small snap closure). Hard to close. The shoulder strap is thin and looks rather cheap for the price of the bag.

I wanted to love this bag. I've tried. I have been using it almost exclusively for two months now, and while it's a nice bag, there are two major issues that I have with it. The first problem is with the attachment system. Basically, it's two velcro loops that, while are quite well-made and sturdy, are not attached to the bag in any way. I've already lost (and luckily found) them at least three times. The other big issue is the closure system and the fact that it is hard to close if the bag is full. It's just a simple snap and a strap that goes over the middle of the bag, leaving most of the bag open to the rain (or things falling out). When it rains, I've had to use a backpack cover to protect my stuff, which isn't particularly nice looking or practical. Ultimately, I will be retiring this bag and trying to sell it. I'm disappointed; it's one of the nicest things I've ever owned, but poorly designed for my lifestyle.
