Weighing 80g, with 0.75 litre storage capacity, this distinctive matt black seat pack features a soft waterproof neoprene shell and the proven Klick Fix mounting system.
Thanks to the latter, fitting and removal takes seconds (remember to take it with you when locking up). There's just enough room for the essentials (decent sized multi tool, tyre levers, puncture repair kit, keys and phone) and build quality seems favourable; even exposed to the wettest lanes on a bike without guards, the contents remained bone dry.
For all this, I can't help thinking £19 is quite expensive for an otherwise spartan design - models costing half as much feature QR brackets, water repellent fabrics, subtle colours and generous compartments without looking barge-like.
