    Alpkit may be more than you want/need to spend?

    Small Alpkit Possum. Fits loads of bikes and great VFM.

    I have an Ortlieb Ultimate 6 Classic. It’s very good & water resistant. Locks on, but easily detached with a handy shoulder strap.

    I’ve got a couple of Xtreme bags from Rose.
    Well made with good zips. I haven’t broken them yet.

    Thanks. Some good stuff to look at. Was looking at the Topeak TourGuide handlebar bag:

    The Ortlieb Ultimate 6 Classic do look very nice, a bit too pricey for me, just bought the bike and now I’m skint! (sorry, I forgot to put a budget in the post) I was looking at no more than £40 tops, ideally £25

    Those Alpkit Possum bags look ideal it’s to go on a Planet X XLS, I’m tempted

    The strap system on the Possum is a real highlight – I have one and it fits my road bike, my MTB and a town errands bike equally well just by adjusting where the straps go, hence why I think it’s such good VFM.

    I need something that will hold my lunch wallet etc for commuting, not much more than that but an open to the roomier ones if that are any good.
    Any suggestions?

    I bought one of these for my wife’s flat bar road bike and I can really recommend it. Smaller than most bar bags but most of the time I find my bar bag too big. The attachment system is very solid and secure, the bag very well made with individual pockets inside and a rain cover too.
    The bracket also comes with a clip on bit to replace the bar length you have lost – useful for a computer or a light if you have narrower bars.

    If I buy another bar bag it’s definitely going to be one of these or another Topeak one.
