Well designed, but a point of fragility

Excellent overview of bikepacking needs. Harness that stays in place, waterproof bag easy to remove and insert, resistant metal "legs" which allow the harness to be tightened securely, etc. Only one negative point, but it forces me to throw this harness in the trash: the plastic plate underneath split during the second season. The harness is only held with the two side braids. I had to pierce the plastic to make a makeshift reinforcement with two rilsans. Without being certain, I would say that the cause is the "break" at the bottom of the harness, which does not really allow the bag to be put on all the way. Too bad, the design is great for a low price.

Cannot speak highly enough of this setup. After some initial quirks trying to get the latches in the right spot (recommend putting up a video or something, the instructions could do with a bit more work) I was pleasantly surprised with how well this carrier performed. Had minimal swaying at all, and barely noticed it when riding. The only time I really knew it was there was when mounting & dismounting my bike.

Super saddle bag

I compared the saddle bag directly with others. This one wobbles much less and is very securely attached. It also fits more in compared to other bags of the same size. Very good.

Very good support…

Very good bag support for bike packing! Unlike competitors, you can leave the support on the saddle and remove only the waterproof bag, which is super practical! 👍 The harness is very stable even when you put yourself as a dancer, so great!

Low resistance

After two bike rides the bottom plate broke. When tightening the straps, the bottom plate is not aligned and tends to squeeze the seams and end up breaking. It seems like a good product to me but the resistance of the plate or the direction in which the lower belts work needs to be improved.

Rverside saddle bag

I consider the purchase to be a very successful one. The bag is made very well. The price/quality ratio is very good. I recommend the product.

Very good value for money…

Very good value for money, firm, solid and simple fixing. Its only fault would be its weight, and even then! Is this really a flaw when you take on bike packing?

Does the job

For the price we really can't complain. However, I find that it is difficult to load if the bag is full, there are missing threads on the sides and it still moves a little.
