    Overall, these are well constructed bags and they attach and sit on the rack nicely. I really like how one is removable and you can attach a shoulder strap to take along with you. There are a number of reviews saying they are too small. It would be nice if the actual dimensions were listed in the description, so here they are (12″ wide x 5″ deep x 11″ tall for each bag). These are the unstretched dimensions, and they do stretch quite a bit giving an additional 2″ or so to any dimension. I like the size of them, not too big, but they still fit alot of stuff.

    These bags are great. Work well on my Trek 4300 mountain bike. Colors are sharp, construction seem to be quality, and I think they will hold up well. It’s awesome that these bags can be used individually or combined (they link together at the top). They are a little smaller than I thought they would be looking at the pictures. Don’t get me wrong- they fit perfectly on my headland stem rack. But as far as what they will hold- I’d say in one of the bags you could get a few textbooks, a cellphone and a wallet and an ipod or mp3 player, or in one you could fit probably a change of clothes, even pants, but maybe not shoes. If you bring a lot of stuff back and forth you may want to search larger bags. or if you are going to make sizable grocery runs, may not be the bag for you. But if you just have a laptop, a book, and a change of clothes these would be great for you. Interestingly only one bag securely clips to the rack itself. This makes sense I think because if you are joining the two bags together (at the top) But I would have included clips on both bags (currently there are two clips on one bag). These clips are great and seem very secure and well made but note they are PLASTIC so if you ride in really cold weather I could see these getting brittle (they rely on the springyness of plastic so they need to be flexible). Also the strip of velcro at the bottom to secure the bottom of the bags seems a little inconvenient. I have NOT taken this bags out but I will add to the review as needed. The product does seem well made though. The last thing I will point out is that the backing of each bag is not as stiff as i am accustomed to. I have trek bags that are very stiffed back. These aren’t as much, but they do retain their shape. I’d most likely buy these again, but I really need to see how they will perform on the road – they look like they should hold up well though!
