Good quality, easy to use

PostedAugust 1, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Purchased using Tesco vouchers deal, which reduced it by 50% and at that 'price' it was a snip. Really good quality, as you'd expect with Carradice - it's not huge, but there are larger ones around if you need more capacity. This is big enough to take essentials for a day trip (ie phone, money, a bite to eat). It needs a clip on light for the front if you're likely to need illumination, as it blocks my front light, however I also bought one of these for £8.99 reduced by 50% using the Tesco deal.

arrived damaged

No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality, arrived damaged
arrived damaged. One of the bolts holding the bag and back plate was missing/ broken, meaning that it drooped on first use, and would not last. . I went onto my local bike shop and we bodged a repair by adding a new bolt as the hassle of returning and arguing by post seemed difficult. But I won't buy on line again from Evans.

carradice - very nice!

PostedJune 20, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, just right size
Cons: not 100% waterproof
I already have Carradice panniers and saddle bags so I knew the products quality. I wanted a handle bar bag with a map pocket before setting out on the C2C. Evans had an offer on this partical bag with the Klik Fix mounting so I bought one. I could not have been happier with the purchase. It is just the right size. The mounting is secure and easy to use and the bag is just in the right position on my bike so it clears the cables without any fouling. The side nets hold the camera so it is easy to access. We had plenty of rain and it was not 100% waterproof whereas my panniers were. Could be that being on the front it gets the full impact of the weather. Still, I am very pleased with it.

Carradice Carradura H/bar bag

PostedJune 22, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I've got their panniers, so I know the product is well made. Fixing the bracket to the bars is a bit of a faff, but VERY solid once secured. The cable is an interesting solution to coping with the bag moving if overloaded on the bars.
Enough pockets for all the 'bits and pieces' we all seem to carry today. Excellent!

Poor durability

PostedMay 10, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality
I bought this handlebar bag to complete a London to Geneva cycle ride. It arrived 2 days before I was due to depart and it was easy to fit and very secure on the handlebar.
However, I did have some problems with it in use. On the first day of my cycle, the right hand popper that secures the map holder broke so the map was only secured on one side. The map holder itself requires some ingenious folding of a map (even French Michelin maps which are narrower than our Ordnance Survey ones) as it's not quite full sized. The zip around the main compartment constantly caught on the hem inside the bag so I had to trim this down. Finally, on the last day the left hand popper broke so I had no way of securing the map.
Overall, although this bag seems good value compared to others, it doesn't seem to be built to last and after 600 miles use is now unusable.
