Strength:

It's a bag. How special could it be?

Weakness:

The clip. It sux. Get the one with the Velcro straps.

How special could it be? I'll tell ya.
Most amazing saddle bag eveh! The small bag holds a tube, 2 CO2 carts and head, patch kit, small bindle of EPO and a tiny Topeak multi tool. If you need more than that you are probably riding a MTB and in the wrong review. The black and white checked bag quickly fades to a nice shade of gray. This will give you that uber-cool Euro cyclista look. People will marvel at the high mileage and inclement weather you as a cyclist obviously endure. You too can have all that bike cred without ever leaving the porch. Hipsters take note! The bag holds stuff, keeps the stuff pretty dry and the zipper seems to work pretty well. It's a bag. What did you expect, card tricks.

I have 3 of these bags on 3 different bikes, but they are the small bags with the velcro straps. Not the medium bag with the Fizik seat clip. Those things just suck.

Strength:

Holds lots of stuff.

Weakness:

Your stuff will soon be gone, because the clip-to-bag attachment is no good.

I agree with the other reviewers that the clip is the Achilles heel of this bag. Actually, it's the four rivets where the clip attaches to the bag fabric - they're just not strong enough to support the bag when it's full of stuff. I was getting ready to start a century, and moments before the start, noticed the bag was hanging by one rivet - the other three had ripped away from the bag!

I've since purchased a Selle Royal hardshell case with an ICS clip, and it does a much better job. It holds the same amount or more than the Fizik bag, and I have confidence that it will still be there at the end of the ride.

Strength:

No Velcro.

Weakness:

Ics system needs to be worked on. The bag should not be able to fall off.

Used for about 6 months to have it fall off during a ride with my $500 phone.

Strength:

biketiresdirect.com made refund, without packaging, no questions asked.

good concept. If worked as intended, would keep your pretty carbon or Ti seatpost free of rub marks, and in like-new condition.

Weakness:

doesn't mount securely. try picking this thing up from the middle of a heavily traficked street, and you'll see why I flame this thing.

The biggest one is still kinda small

Used it once. Fell off 3 x's in 80 min. ride. Clip doesn't lock securely. Returned for refund.

Strength:

good bag just keep an eye on the bottom hinge.

Weakness:

bottom hinge

Great bag does what its supposed to but don't get to comfortable with not checking it...the hinge on the bottom of the clip broke and the bag is gone. I didn't hear it or even notice it until i got home and the only thing hanging on the back of my bike was the clip with no bag. That took about a year to happen now I'm out two tubes, 2 co2 bottles and head, and an sks multi tool...good thing I didn't have any money tucked in the bag.

Strength:

Integrated with seat
Takes up minimual space on seat post
Convenient quick release
Tail light strap
Reflective material
Quiet
Large enough for the essentials

Weakness:

Clamp does not hold as tightly as expected but bag has not come loose
Medium bag is barely large enough for me
No external elastic strap on bottom to increase capacity for a small pump or extra inner tube

I.C.S. works great because my seat is all the way forward which barely left enough room for the metal bracket of other quick release style bags on the seat rails.
