Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Early days yet, but so far I've been very impressed with the quality of the bag although it's expect for the price. Fed up in with having a sweaty back from my rucksack I've decided to look for a bag for my brompton.
I have a S type handlebar which limits the front luggage options. I found the O bag fits well and provides quite a substantial amount of luggage space for my daily commute to work. There are lots of pockets inside to organise your stuff including a compartment for my 17" laptop at a squeeze. It also has two external pockets which I can fit my tools plus other odds and sods!
The bag attaches well to the front carrier block and remains firmly attached even when cycling over cobblestones.
Only had it for a week so far but not had a chance to test it's waterproofness but looks like it would do it's job well.
Overall easy to install, looks great and has made my bike journey into work much more comfortable without having to wear a rucksack... no more sweaty back woohoo!

High quality bag but expensive

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
High quality, good looking bag, with very comfortable straps and carry handle. Slightly smaller than anticipated but attachable pouches increase load carrying capacity. Straps seem a bit short compared with Brompton S bag which feels strangely restrictive of holding capacity. But bomb proof and high vis.

I bought this to go with my 2013 p6 brompton and I don't regret it at all. Firstly it looks re- assuringly expensive, which of course it is!!!, more practically it has lots and lots of separate USEFUL compartments inside the main bag, outside there are two waterproof separate slot on ortlieb bags that can hold bottles or equivalent items, I use them for some bike bits and bobs and my wallet and keys and this still leaves lots of room. On the inside there's a large laptop space, 15 inch,which is well padded and segregated, two zip pockets and a mesh inner pocket for change as well as pen holders, and the main compartment.
As an example I can get my shorts, gymn top, small towel, wash kit, iPad,lunchbox and books and paperwork in it so its capable of holding all you could need throughout the day.Of course it's totally waterproof and as such this is a massive plus for all weather commuters like me, the bonus of not having to faff about getting an extra waterproof cover onto your bag is priceless.
Now the only downside, the straps that secure the lid onto the front of the bag are stupidly short, if, like me, you do pack a lot of stuff daily, it's a case of using brute power to shut the case, considering the size of the bags compartment, this to me is a huge oversight as if the straps were longer you could utilise more of the case.
All in all a superb bit of kit,worth the money but be mindful of the limitations of the straps.
