Specialized's Wedgie Bag is the perfect size to carry the essentials and just a bit more. It'll hold a tube, patch kit, tire levers, mini tool, cell phone, and energy bar. It has a water-resistant coating and zipper to keep your gear dry, and there's even an internal, easy-access, neoprene tool pocket that protects your spare tube from getting punctured. What's more, the Wedgie attaches in a snap and stays put thanks to its handy hook-and-loop straps.
The bag does what it's designed to do: hold the essentials, with room to expand. That said, the most annoying flaw with the design lies with the strap that loops around the seat post. The excess Velcro strap rubs against the right inside thigh until a hole wears through. I've ruined three pairs of shorts this way. One suggested solution involves trimming the excess strap such that the end extends no further then the front of the seatpost.N.B. This is an expensive problem caused by a [$] bag.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
