5.0 out of 5 stars Good size budget bag, 9 Aug. 2011
I brought this rack bag to use on my folding dahon bike.

Without using the side pockets it takes a change of clothes, a sizeable lunch and a waterproof jacket. It is 10 litres which if you compare it to tupperware containers you can get an idea of the volume.

The folding sides are not as sturdy as the main bag but are perfectly useable. They fit on the standard dahon rack without any problems and are short enough not to need their own support. Each bag takes a small change of clothes (trousers, top and underwear) and a portable dvd player fits in with the clothes too.

The rain cover is good and though it doesnt fully cover the side pockets it does fit over the top of them when full which I think will suffice.

The 3 velcro straps keep it in place and do take a minute or two to fit but that's why this is a budget bag and not a more expensive quick release bag. If I only fill one outer side pocket I can still fold my bike up and carry it with the bag on. This is weighty but fine to simply carry it on and off the train.

The carry strap is okay, I havent carried it too far or with anything too heavy but it is quite wide and padded so should be fine.

There is only one small pocket which is tough to get into, but if you dont use the side pockets unfolded you can use those as small pockets.

Overall if you want a pannier set for your foldie (or any bike) this is a good product and perfectly practical for the price.
