Carry your ride necessities in Blackburn's Zayante Small and keep your pockets empty. This small seat bag has enough room for the essentials like a spare tube, patch kit, tire levers, CO2, keys and credit card. Thanks to its compact size it fits neatly under your seat and out of the way. And, the O-ring attachment won't scratch seatposts and fits around odd-shaped seatmasts.
This bag is fine if you stick to roads and flat trails, but the first time I did a little drop, it ripped off the seat, the velcro strap tearing off the top. Physics, I guess.
After it did, I took the strap and wrapped it around the bag to hold it onto the seat for the ride back; that actually worked better. IMO the bag should have been designed with the strap attached at the bottom and wrapping around to the top.
Regardless, it is a nice bag, I just don't recommend it on rougher terrain.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
