One of our best small-medium size saddle bags. 50 Cubic Inches offers the user to carry a bit more than just the bare essentials. High quality construction and top design make this an easy choice for any cyclist.
The Fizik Saddle Pak is secured to the saddle and post by two Velcro straps and features a protective layer of Cordura on the front of the pack for added durability. The Zipper opens 280 degrees for optimal access.
Love this bag. It holds 2 tubes, co2(2) and tires levers and mini tool - then there is room left over for other tools or items. The material is reflective which is a bonus. One other note worthy feature is the velcro is in the right places so the bag is held securely to the seat and doesnt sag or move when riding.
Ive used mine for five years, no problems at all. It holds two road tubes, 4 CO2 cartridges, and a couple of tire tools no problem. Zipper works fine. The bag shows a tiny bit of wear where it contacts the seat post, but itll last for a few more years yet.
I have had repeated problems getting a bag to fit under my Arione saddle that does not rub against my legs when I ride. After consulting a salesperson at Excel, I was told that this bag would work. It looked well made also, so I bought it. Shortly into a long ride the next day, I realized that the saddle was rubbing the back of my legs with every pedal stroke. By the time I got home, I had a nice abrasion on my shorts and a used bag that couldnt be returned. I ride my saddle pretty far back, but still this came as a disappointment.
Ive had mine for 2 months, and I love it. I usually carry just 2 tubes, 1 big co2 catridge, 1 tire lever, some sort of nutrition like trail mix or gel, 5 dollar bill, and I clip my cell phone on the outside strap . I have not experianced a broken zipper i can only assume people are stuffing it too much. Great bag looks cool I recommend it.
Im on my third one of these b/c the zippers keep breaking. I like the design of the bag but the zippers are terrible!
The zipper broke after about three months ... I think I only opened the pack a handful of times. I like the size and the straps but the zipper is a joke.
This is a very nicely made small saddle bag. It is just big enough for what I put in it: a tube, patch kit, tire levers, multi-tool, and keys. it is not big enough for much else. A credit card and drivers license will fit, but not a whole wallet. My biggest gripe with the bag is the location of the zipper. It is located about an inch inward of the end of the bag. That means that when the bag is strapped to the saddle, the zipper can not simply be zipped and unzipped. I have to first undo the strap that attaches the bag to the saddle, unzip the bag, put in/take out what I want, and then re-attach the Velcro strap.
The pack is extremely compact & barely has enough room for the essentials (or the user needs to have a very limited definition of whats essential). Only can hold a tube, co2 cartridge, small multitool and a tire lever. No room for a cell phone or set of keys even after the list above is crammed in. Nice looking, however - especially under a Fizik saddle.
