Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not pleased. The pack seems nice, but when it's loaded, it is impossible to mount tightly enough to use. The problems with thigh rub that I encountered on my shakedown ride turned out to be a non-issue simply because the mounting straps on this pack will not seem to hold it tightly for more than a few fleeting seconds. After the straps loosen, the pack sways to and fro and becomes looser and looser. While the straps are designed in a way that will prohibit it from falling completely off, this pack is unusable for me, even with my relatively light ~2kg load, the pack will not stay securely attached to the bike.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor engineering I was optimistic about this bag since I love everything else about timbuk2, but this bag wasn't engineered well enough to let you strap it securely to your saddle. It flops around a lot as you ride especially if you're pedaling out of the saddle. The straps also slip and the whole bag slouches under it's own weight. I finished a short ride with it and the bag was almost sagging down to my tire where I had PLENTY of clearance when I started. I'll be returning this for a Revelate Designs bag as soon as i can.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed I purchased this seat-post bag hoping that I could use it for clothing and lightweight items. On my first bike-packing trip, the bag hit the tire, folded, and stopped the wheel from moving. This resulted in me having to strap it to my pack to carry. I returned the bag and purchased a seat-post bag the packs upward rather than over the wheel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a great bikepacking bag for a good price point! I had some issues with the bikepack contacting the tyre when I jumped a curb, there was around 3 inches of clearance in normal use but there isn't enough loops at the bottom for adjustment to give the pack an upwards tilt like other brands of bikepacks. Nowhere on the site mentions this is meant for bikepacking though, I'm guessing most people should be fine when they use this for commuting or their seats are higher to offer more clearance, but mountain bikers and anyone who might take their bikes to more tricky terrain may have to go with another product. Apart from this issue, the bag is really well made. If I could nitpick, I would say if there is are loops to clip on a tail light it would be most excellent, but it's not very feasible as it is a drybag type of closure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, for the price I'm generally a fan of Timbuk2, and have been for a while. When I saw this seabag I was pretty excited and immediately bought it. It's about half the price of Timbuktu's competitors and seemed to be of decent quality. It lacks features like lightweight fabrics and custom colors, but for the price, it's tough to beat. I noticed the sway another reviewer tried to explain; this design of bag lends itself to that sort of motion, which seems to exacerbate itself. Other companies have good ways of dealing with it, but I used a nylon tie-down strap (an inexpensive Jandd one in a good length (not for a car or construction site) with a plastic buckle. I should mention the handy daisy-chain loops on the bag's underside. I used these to thread the strap around the bag and over the seat rails, effectively lashing it to the seat. In my short rides so far, it seems to hold together. I haven't had a chance to take it on a longer ride. My goal is the Great Divide or any number of long bikepacking routes, or some overnight camping trips nearby. What I can fit in the bag: A synthetic REI Polar Pod sleeping bag, A Sea to Summit Themolite Extreme sleeping bag liner, a military Gore-Tex ECWCS bivy and small inflatable pillow. I can jam a light down jacket in there also, but it gets pretty difficult to roll. So, yes, that's a complete sleeping arrangement hanging under my seat. The bag makes a good fender/mudguard also. These types of bags are better for soft things like tents (minus poles) or clothing. It wouldn't work so well with hard things like camp stoves or fuel bottles. Since it can be rolled down pretty small, it can take a change of clothes or maybe some gear for a beach day or short ride somewhere. They don't replace smaller, more "traditional" seat bags used for patches and small tools, although you could put that stuff in the bag, with other things. I have some reservations about the rivet that holds the compression strap to the bag. I wonder how well it will do long-term, and if it breaks, can I repair it with a bolt or something. I almost forgot about the zippered pocket on the side. I'm not sure how one gets into it with the bag full and compression straps under load. Whilst its lovely the bag has reflective stripes facing back, it would be nice if they incorporated loops for a light. However, it has attachment points for accessory bags like the ones Revelate makes for GPS beacons and small jackets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I'm a randonneur and usually participate in more than 200km ride, which must carry plenty of gears and wears to deal with varies conditions. As mentioned in other review, it's not easy to make it tight when the bag is fully loaded. However it could be fixed when add 2 reusable cable tie on both sides and mount them to the seat trail. I've tried for more than 1000km and it works fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact, easy to use I've used this to commute for a week now, and am satisfied with it. Enough space for a lunch, basic tire changing supplies, and even a couple of (slightly crumpled) pieces of clothing. It stays high up, off the wheel, though that could be an issue if your seat post isn't raised up very far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of room but moves around too much My only real problem with this product is the connection to the seatpost. It would slide up towards the seat which would make the bag sag and nearly touch the rear tire. Also if you had to get up off the saddle the bag would sway left to right and make for an uncomfortable ride.
