THEY SHARED THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH THIS ITEM

A nice idea, but impractical. Most bikes have room for two water bottles and this could go in one of them. Unfortunately, it really isn't big enough. In addition, anything you put in rattles around inside driving you mad. Because the container is rigid you cannot fit as much as you can in like a saddlebag. If you cant squeeze in that last tool then there will be an empty space which will cause the contents to rattle. The best I could do was to put an inner tube in and a few tools. The inner tube was there just to stop the contents rattling. I don't use it anymore.
Easier to use than an under seat bag and waterproof
Bought this for winter as saddle bags are harder to clean. It takes my essential tools, house keys and money and keeps it all dry. Easy to wash after a ride too. With hindsight i should have got the bigger version to squeeze in an inner tube too (road bike, no chance with mtb).
Waterproof, easy to clean
If you like to travel light, without a bag or panniers, but still want to take a few tools/spares without weighing down your pockets, then this is for you. My phone fits in there too for tracking my ride, although some larger phones may be a bit tight. Keeps the wet out too.
Cheap, light, virtually watertight
Could be taller
too short to carry a 150mm long tyre repair aerosol otherwise ideal piece of kit
