The things I particularly like about this bag are:
*Wide opening with dual zippers
*Strap on the back to clip on a light
*Mesh pocket inside the flap for small items
*Sturdy clip for holding a key
*Strap on one side of the inner pocket to hold items (like tire levers) against the side of the bag
*Pocket on the other side of the inner compartment which is just the right size for a debit card (or to keep bus fare tucked away in case you really break something on the bike)
*The zipper to expand the bag is on the bottom and can be easily zipped or unzipped while the bag is mounted on the bike
*The bag looks nice. The Serfas logo is not too ugly and the colored part of the bag is also reflective for a little extra visibility
I like the size too. It's small enough to go under the saddle without sticking out, but big enough to hold everything I need. I usually carry an extra tube, patch kit, a couple tire levers, cell phone, debit card, a multi tool, a chain break tool, bus fare, and a couple wet wipes to clean up a little after changing a flat. All that fits easily without expanding the bag, so for a longer ride it can be expanded and a few snacks would fit in there too.
I do have a couple minor quibbles. I'd like to be able to put my driver's license and debit card in the interior mesh pocket, but it's just too small. One of my other bags also has little fabric webbing on either side of the opening flap to help keep stuff from falling out if you happen to leave the bag unzipped by accident. This one does not have that, but with the way it's designed the flap tends to want to stay closed anyway. As I said, these are minor issues and I wouldn't detract from my rating because of them.
It seems quite well made, but time will tell how it holds up to use. On other bags I have had, the zipper is usually the first thing to give out, so I'm guessing that would be the likely weak spot on this bag if it has one.
I actually looked at a lot of seat bags in stores in this price range, including the similar bag made by Topeak, and all were lacking something that I was looking for. I took a chance and ordered this one here at Amazon and I'm glad I did.
The bag hangs under the seat very solidly and doesn't move around much as far as I can tell. It has a reflective strip going around and behind it and a strap to hang a light from on the rear flap.
I love the quality and styling on the bag. Overall I am very pleased. It does exactly what I expect of it.
*Great color scheme. Very sleek looking underneath the bike seat with simple design reminiscent of Puma shoes. The color part is reflective and the logo is small.
*Build quality is very good. Fabric seems durable and thick. There is some sort of hardened plastic within the top and bottom walls to keep its shape.
*Functional design is well thought out. Two zippers allow me to close at whatever side I want or at the top. Pull tabs at each end as well to help open and close the zippers. Inside to the right is a soft pouch that fits my multi-tool perfectly. Inside to the left is a elastic band that holds my LED Cree flashlight perfectly. On the flap there is a mesh pocket where I put small tire patches and also a clip where I can hook my keys to. Plus I still have the middle space empty which could probably fit a whole tire valve tube.
*My specialized lightweight post and saddle set doesnt have the traditional metal bar rails where I can hook up the velcro strips of Serfas bag. Instead it has a central I-beam and I had to improvise with zip ties. But I knew that before buying, and I just wanted to people to be aware.
*Other than that, nothing else! Just make sure that the size is right for you. Its hard to think of a comparison, but maybe the size of a very large potato.
Apart from my lousy size example, hope some of this information helps =)
Compared to other wedge packs I've owned, this is just a little less -- well -- wedgy. The slightly shorter, wider, less tapered-at-the-front shape makes it more usable than other packs of the same listed volume, without being too clunky-looking on a nice road bike.
For emergencies I carry a road tube, CO2 inflator similar to Genuine Innovations Ultraflate Plus Tire Inflater, a spare CO2 cartridge, and the Topeak Hexus II Multi-tool which fits a full complement of tools including chain tool and tire irons into a sleek, compact package. Side pockets accommodate keys and protect my old-school flip-style cell phone. By unzipping the bottom expansion section, I can shove in my overstuffed wallet, then re-zip to un-expand and keep everything tidy. Expanded, there would be room for that chubby wallet, a larger cell phone, plus a couple of extra snack bars thrown in as well. Not quite as sleek, but not too bad either.
The velcro straps seem not to attack my shorts at all; I trimmed back the seatpost strap slightly so it wouldn't stick out.
Construction quality is good, and I like the reflective stripe and the blinky attachment.
As a bonus, the color selection is nice. We went all matchy-matchy with a red one to go with my bike and a green one for my wife's ride.
