Rated4out of5byPortia PiefromSuper Cute BagI really do love this bag. It's incredibly cute and functional and I use it almost every day. I mainly use it to commute to work and mill around the city. It looks great on my bike and it is sturdy and easy to attach to my rack. The shoulder strap and handles also make it really easy to carry around like a normal handbag - it's not awkward to carry like some panniers.
The two things that are cons about this bag are where it's situated on the rack and the small size of the inside of the bag. Because it sits atop your rack and doesn't hang from the sides like most panniers, it makes the back of your bike fairly top heavy and awkward at times. This might not be that big of a problem for most people who have a normal sized bike (my bike is tiny because...I'm tiny). It's just something you have to get used to - really not a huge deal, but worth mentioning. Also, and this may be a pro for some people, but the bag is fairly small - meaning you're limited with what you can carry. It's a tight squeeze when i bring my lunch, change of clothes, my bike lock and a light jacket. Again, some people may be looking for a smaller bag for short commutes, millin' around town, etc. If so, this is the bag for you! Also, it looks fairly large on my Salsa Casseroll...as previously mentioned, my bike is tiny. It is just an optical illusion. This bag is small.
Overall, I love the bag and am very happy with my purchase.
