I've had this out for several hundred miles now, some of that in cold, wet conditions. It has held up fine so far. It is big enough to hold a spare tube, levers, co2 and patch kit with no problem. I think I could get another cartridge in there if needed. Looks good and stays put! Just what I needed! (I replaced another, higher end bag that did not attach to the seat post since It was always coming loose.)
I planned to ride a century but didn't want to depend on rest stop food offerings (certain foods just don't settle after mile 50). I stuffed my jersey pockets but looked like a deflated Michelin Man. So I ignored Rule 31 and purchased this European Man Satchel. It's big, swallowed everything I dared dump in it, but cinches up nicely and is barely visible under my Selle Italia Flite.
Of course any seat bag is an abomination. But this one is a useful abomination. And my Jersey mainted it's sleek, aero, Ero-pro look (or at least what was possible given the body it was draped over). What more could you want?
A nicely made bag but way too small. I do tubeless, I need to carry: 1 tube, 1 CO2, 1 multi tool, 2 tire levers, small bottle stan's sealant.
This bag is too small. If no sealant, probably OK.
I use it to hold identification, cell phone, and what I need to replace a tube (tube, levers, CO2 cartridges). It can hold those things, but not readily or easily.
I purchased this for my sonï¿½s bike. Very good price and so far the quality seems solid. Not the biggest bag but certainly enough room for the essentials, with room left over for incidentals. I would buy another
On first opening the box, my reaction was this bag is too small to even hold a tube- just ship it back. But with a little patience I worked in a tube, tire irons, a CO2 cartridge and an allen wrench set in the size small bag. So the bag is big enough for what you need to change a flat or make minor repairs on the road, anything else put in the jersey pockets- that's what they are there for.
perfect size if you get the medium. fits a spare tube, tire levers, co2 applicator/canister, emergency spoke kit, tire boot, patch kit, multi-tool AND a pocket knife. you'll be the most prepared cat on the road-plus it looks great at night.
It was difficult to understand the size by the description. The actual bag appears well made, it holds a 700 tube, spoons and a small set of Allen wrenches and not much else
I needed a new seatbag that could hold roadbiking essential and this works great. It holds a spare tube, a patch kit, an inflator, a few CO2 cartridges and a compact too. Plus it's reflective and has a loop on it to hold a blinking rear light for dusk rides.
Seems like a really sturdy saddle bag. I got it as a gift for my dad. The expandable storage is nice and is able to fit an iphone 11 if that helps.
Perfect size for 2 tubes and a few small tools. My last one was a bit too small but this is roomier. Seems high quality.
Bought one a couple years ago and works quite nice, this is my second bag to go on my Gravel Grinder
This Banjo Brothers Deluxe Seat Bag puts the finishing touches on my bike build. Spare tube, crank brothers multi tool and two Co2 cartridges all fit with a little room to spare.
I got the small bag and can fit 1 tube, CO2 cannister, CO2 Inflator, small multitool, tiny patch kit, and thin business card holder I use to carry my cash, local trail pass, a credit cardhealth ID card. Tight fit, but now my jersey pockets are free for smart phone, foodgels, spare CO2 cannister or second tube for long rides, or room for clothes I peel off during colder rides. It's slightly smaller than a bag I used before. Well made and has a good shape to it. There is no inner compartments to divide things, but it does have a small clasp on a tether to secure a key.
It may be small, but I fit two 700 x 25 tubes, two C02's with inflator, two tire levers, a multi-tool, pain relievers, a $20 bill and something else I can't remember. I tucks in and without any supporting testing, feels pretty aerodynamic. I love this thing.
