PROS: Lots of Storage, Lightweight
CONS: Not enough pockets
BEST USES: Commuting, Mountain Bikes
The only two downsides are that I wish the pack was just a hair larger, but also a bit lighter. I can't quite fit my shoes in, I've got to strap them to the top of the pack. It would be useful if the website listed the inside dimensions of the pack, not just the volume.
The whole system, rack and pack together add several pounds to a lightish bike, making it a bit of a chore to commute. It feels quite durable though, so maybe a little weight is just the price to pay for durability and stiffness.
PROS: Rugged, Clever System, Secure Mounting
CONS: Too Small, Heavy
My previous trunk bag was attached by 6 rip-n-stick straps. That could take a while to attach. (The Velcro would occasionally come loose, too.) This one is just slide, click, and go. Much faster and more reliable.
This model is also highly expandable with two fold-away panniers.
But, it is not perfect: Sometimes the latch does not entirely hold, or it shakes lose (this is quite rare). I counter this by wrapping the shoulder strap around the seat post. It works as a failsafe - like the safety chain on a trailer.
I would also prefer it have more reflective material on the back. And, it should have a stiffer loop to attach a rear-facing light. The current one tends to droop, pointing the light toward the ground.
Despite the minor short-comings, I have not found a better solution on the market.
PROS: Durable, Fast Attach, Solid Construction, Expandable
CONS: Latch not 100, Needs more refletives
