A nice canister which fits well in the bottle cage. Unfortunately, the lid is prone to over-tightening and the threads are too coarse so now the lid pops off easily. Might get use in the future as a storage bin for miscellaneous screws? pencil holder? chain soaker?
Picked up this tool bottle and another brand from the local bike shop. The PRO bottle with the rounded top does not stay in my Bontrager cages in aggressive terrain and the lid pops off the threads very easily. Save your time and money and skip this one.
I keep my inflator, 2 CO2 cartridges, tire levers, multi-tool, and patch kit inside. Added a rag to hold it all together and keep it from rattling. The only issues I have are that my inflator won't fit with a cartridge in it (check your's first), and the top is only held on with 1-2 threads, which seem like they are going to pop if you try to max out the capacity. With that said, it hasn't come off yet, and there's plenty of room for 2 cartridges even without storing one in the inflator.
Hold more then a small saddle bag. Large lid makes it easier to pack crap. Seem water proof, Secure in bottle cage. Just wish the container walls wasn't so thin. Sometime the lid will pop off from squeezing the container when removing from a tight bottle cage.
Lost lid, found an old waterbottle top that fit, lost that one too, found another, lost that one now I just use it without lit, fills with mud and dirt when riding with it under the downtube. too flexible for lid to stay on.
I actually am very happy with this little carrier. I've used it for Gels, Cliff Bars, Wallet, Watch, Trash, etc.... I don't use the lid since I'm in and out of this thing constantly on my ride. It doesn't rattle and fits nice and snug in the bottle carrier. For $3... its not a bad purchase.
Holds more than a saddle bag. Holds ID, credit card, spare change, spare tube, Co2 Cartridge and inflator, levers and a patch kit and a passport for those cross border rides(and it keeps it dry).
On days when you need only one water bottle, putting your co2 cartridge, inner tube, and tire levers in this half bottle with flat lid and keeping it in one of your bottle cages surely beats having all those items form a super big bulge in your jersey pocket. No need anymore for cutting up two old bottles and making one of these yourself as many cyclists do. This is perfect and inexpensive.
great alternative to bulky (and sometimes ugly) saddle bags.Sometimes I just use it to carry keysfood etc. if my jersey doesn't have pockets or if they're filled with wind jacket etc.
