The Backcountry Food Pouch mounts to either side of the stem for easy-access to ride food, a water bottle, tools, or other riding or bikepacking essentials. Dimension Polyvant VX21 waterproof fabric makes up the body for a lightweight pouch that is extremely abrasion- and tear- resistant, and it uses Hypalon, adjustable, carbon-friendly straps to get a grip on the handlebar and stem. A yellow liner improves contrast so contents don't get lost on the bottom of the pouch, and they can be secured inside with the one-finger bungee cinch to seal off the top.

Closure cord does little to keep top closed or bottle secured. The hook for the elastic loop does nothing useful. Bag seems thin and poorly insulated compared to much less expensive off brand versions found elsewhere.
Two velcro-type straps (one of which can be re-located in different positions) near the top of the bag for attaching to stem & handlebar a web strap at the base which can be attached to whatever is convenient (usually the head tube on a road bike)to provide stability.
Elastic cord to closeopen the top - simple to operate on-the-go.
Does not hold a huge amount - I use two (I find difficulty in accessing all the rear pockets of jersey on-the-go as advancing age is perhaps limiting right arm flexibility),
Works well from my perspective (but do not have experience with any other brands) - marked down to 4-stars for value as shipping to Canadian address is expensive
