Rated 2 out of 5 by Meirion Have had 2 of these break (after low milage)
Had 2 of these break within 600 miles (only packed with 2 tubes, patch kit, multi tool, 2x aaa batteries and tyre boot; approx 400g). Does look nice, easy to remove with the clip and spacious but I would not recommend as the plastic clip is not strong enough, don't risk losing your expensive tools/tubes, get the velcro strapped.
Pro's outweigh the cons but the con is so damning that I cannot recommend this item at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vote4pedro Not fit for purpose.
If you buy this bag and use it for anything more than storing your empty energy gel packets then it will snap at the plastic clip. Almost 100% guaranteed. I have been through 4 or 5 (small size) and every single one has failed (CRC replace them each time - I am now bored of sending them back).
I cant believe that there is a medium sized version with the same snappable part. I suppose this could be useful / effective for storing a car sponge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by abuhawa Great product but fragile hook material
I bought this for almost 6 months and been using it with my mountain bike equipped with Fizik saddle. I own other saddle bags but all will block the movement of my dropper post. So that's the only reason why I bought this.
However, few weeks ago, the hook from the bag to the saddle clip broke due to my habit of having the bike (with the saddle bag attached) lean on its side on the ground (like others, my mountain bike does not have stand). I believe due to this, overtime, the fatigue stress on the saddle hook just too much and unbearable leading to one side broken. But honest the bag is very nice and I will buy again, but hopefully Fizik may do something to strengthen the saddle hook.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FlyingScotsman Clip snapped on ride 7!
Clip snapped after 7 rides. I had 2 tubes and 2 tyre levers in it. Like the way it should work - clip is not strong enough!

Rated 4 out of 5 by matt13 Replacement bag for the same model
I bought this bag after my first one of the same model broke. It broke in the same area other people mentioned here (at the plastic clip to the bag) but that was after nearly four years and two crashes (one at +60kph). I love the fizik clip system, I love the small size. Perhaps I had better luck as I only use it on my road and time trial bikes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sendgridover Questionable quality
Towards the end of day one on a 3 day road ride to Brussels, the bag pulled through the rivets, left the clip attached to the saddle and the bag on the floor. Rode for about 20 miles with the bag in my hand until I got to the hotel and bodged it back on with cable ties. Complained to Fizik in Italy, who are supplying a new bag. See how this goes, but may go back to my Top Peak which has never let me down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hillman No good
This product looks good but unfortunately it proved to be non functional in that it broke and fell off my bike on the 3rd. outing. I was left wihh part of the plastic connection to the saddle and the bag and its contents gone. A waste of money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dominic Small Bag Sizing Information
When I was looking for sizing information on the two different bags online I found it difficult to find samples of what you could fit into the bag itself.
So I purchased a small bag and this what I have in mine:
1. Maxxis Ultralight Tube
2. 2 x 16G CO2 Bottles
3. Lezyne Smart Kit Patches
4. Crank Brothers Multi Mini Tool 17
5. Spare Dura-ace chain link
6. Lenzye Trigger Drive
The clip needs to be tighten every few rides, this is great as a Road bag but would not use it for anything else.
Great bag and since I have purchased the bag 2 of my friends have purchased Fizik Saddles and the bags.
