Fizik Saddle Pak Small
For road cyclists who prefer to carry the minimum requirements for flat tires or mechanical issues, the Small Fizik Saddle Pak has been a huge favorite. The lightweight, highly water resistant Cordura fabric is durable, and has reflective properties. A single sealed zipper with a long tab gives direct access to the storage space- in this case .25 liters. Simple rail and seatpost velcro straps make mounting/removing easy and quick.
The Small offers storage for a tube, a mini CO2 inflator with a cartridge, thin tire levers, and maybe a key, credit card or folded cash. You won't be getting any more in here. Okay, maybe a short 4mm Hex wrench. The bag is compact and when fastened tightly, won't sway or move. The rear facing tab can be used for a clip-on light, and has reflective zones. In our experience, the Fizik Saddle Pak is perfect for fast group rides where if riders share a little, nobody needs to be ride quartermaster. This bag is easy-to-use, and requires little thought. In other words, perfect for what it is- a truly compact saddle bag that gets the job done.

All I want in a seat bag is to hold my stuff. Seat bags are cheap, but when they spill their contents on to the road or fall off they get real expencive. Missing one small Fizik Saddle Pak. Contents. 1 tube, 1 Park multi tool, 1 Apple 4s iPhone. All lost on this seat bags first use.
Pros Looks great
Cons Fell off on it's first ride.

Okay, maybe two bags were a fluke. I bought the third one bacause it is exactly the right size and does not rub on your shorts. I have lubed the zipper with silicone and it seems to have helped the problem. I will buy another one if this one breaks again. Its the size, just right, fits well under the seat. Too bad about the zipper though.

Same thing as the rest of you. The bag is perfect under the saddle, but the damn zipper is no good. I broke one on the first bag I bought and thought it was just a fluke. Bought another bag and the zipper broke again. Sorry FIZIK, but the bag has got to go, or fix the zipper.

Well constructed but with a poor design. Had to loosen bag each time to unzip zipper. Zipper should have been placed on the bottom. Been putting my things in an old sock in a jersey pocket ever since.

A nice looking bag, especially combined with a matching saddle, but I also experienced a busted zipper, 30 miles into the Copper Triangle ride. I had to throw the bag in a trash can and fill my jersey pockets.

I was impressed with how snuggly it fit underneath the saddle. Most velcro straps from other saddle bags that Ive used have lost their grip, the ones on this bag really held up. But just like the other reviewers I also encountered a busted zipper on mine. One side just "derailed" and after that it was game over. Great design minus the zipper.

Ive had mine for about 6 months, opened / closed it maybe 10 times, and the zipper fell apart. Great size and design, but they need to upgrade to a more durable zipper before Ill buy another one. Too bad - otherwise a great product.

Good construction and great size, but the zipper is a problem. Ive tried two of them, and both zippers have come undone behind the zip. Once that happens theres no way to fix it. I think the teeth are so big it has a hard time closing each one.
