I try and ride my bike to work 3-4 times a week and don't have to far to go (~15 miles). I had a pair panniers that were not waterproof and were pretty old. When I saw this bag online and at the price it was, it was a no brainer to buy it. For the price, it is awesome bag. Easy to put on and off the rack and the waterproof feature is a must in Seattle. My dislikes are the closure seal, which is stiff and hard to open and close and the fact that there isn't more pockets or compartments.

This was my second attempt at a saddle bag on STP. The first went back due to the amount of taper that would not fit my cell phone. I ordered this on to fit the dimensions of my Galaxy S4. Unfortunately it tapers a bit too much for the phone, and the rigid sides don't allow for a "stretched" fit. However, the quality is good and the rubber coat is an added bonus, so I kept it. If you don't have much distance under your seat from the seat post, you could run into a bit of a problem with easy mounting. Quality product.
