    Have some self respect.

    Jamming up your sleek saddle and seatpost with a clunky bag is like putting a cargo rack on your hard-top convertible—you could do it, we guess, but really? Show a little restraint. SciCon's Elan Seat Bag is a master of subtlety, with just enough space to hold a tube, tire levers, and multitool so you don't get stranded miles from everywhere. Made of Cordura, the Elan is as rugged as they come, and attaches to your saddle rails with a single hook-and-loop strap, so you don't have to deal with obnoxious seatpost straps that interfere with your carefully curated saddle-and-seatpost aesthetic.

    Be careful of single velcro strap!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    While bike was on roof rack of car, air got between saddle and bag. Caused the velcro strap to fail, and my bag went flying off the bike on to the freeway. Watched it disappear in my mirror. Was not possible to stop and retrieve, so I lost a fairly expensive Crank Bros Multi tool, and Arrundel C02 valve. Be careful! Take bag off bike if transporting on rack at highway speeds.

    Nice size bag.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This bag is a good size for a set of Fix it sticks, 2 CO2 cartridges, an inflation adapter, one tube, and 2 tire spoons. Maybe a patch kit as well. I carry it in a jersey pocket, not under the seat, as I do not like the way it sits. My seat / post combination interferes. On another bike, it fits fine under the seat.

    Excellent Bag

      This bag is the perfect roadside toolbox. It tightly fits everything you need to get you back on the road after a flat. I carry the Blackburn Wayside CO2 nozzle, a CO2 cartridge, 3 tire levers, Park Tool IB-2 set, and a Continental race light tube. There is still a little room I could throw in a key or some patches. The whole thing sits very discreetly under the saddle.

      Excellent Bag

      Micro-sized bag that's just right

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      This is the smallest bag I've ever seen and yet it still holds a spare tube and some tools. The zipper goes all the way around so it is easy to get stuff in and out. The velcro strap is long and allows you to tighten the bag to the seat easily. It is so small that you almost can not see it at all when you are on the bike. I am attaching it to my seat rails with an additional strip of velcro. It may not be needed but I want to not have this bag (like previous bags) fall off.

      Secure, convenient, and minimalist.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've owned numerous different saddle bags, and this is by far my favorite.

      Super low profile, light weight, stays far back under the saddle, doesn't rub on my legs. It's fast and easy to attach and remove. The full top opening makes it easy to see and organize the contents. I regularly hammer down rough streets, but it stays completely secure. Long term, I'm not sure how the velcro will last under continual reattachment, but so far so good.

      I have this on my CX bike right now and have squeezed in: a 700x43 tube, a tire lever, Park GP-2 patch kit, one 20g CO2, a CO2 nozzle, and a Park IB-2 multi-tool. There's still room around the edges for a couple small items (keys, etc.), but it's pretty packed. Packed is good, as it keeps items from shifting or making noise. It bulges out the top very slightly, but I use that to fill in the space between the seat rails and help it stay secure.

      Compact, questionable durability

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Here is what I carry in this pack:

      - One road tube

      - Two Pedro's tire levers (bigger than most tire levers)

      - One multi-tool (not one of those tiny ones either, this one has 16 pieces or so)

      With a bit of squeezing I can just barely fit all these in there. You're not going to want to open it up regularly with all this stuff, because it's difficult to get it closed again. But the point of this pack is just to handle emergencies, so I'm not too worried about it.

      The only problem thus far is that it developed a small hole near the top after only a couple weeks of usage. This may have been from my multitool puncturing it when I squeezed everything in there, so I won't penalize it too much. So far it's just a small hole, and doesn't seem to be getting any bigger.

      I should add that if you're hoping to carry what I have listed above PLUS a co2 cartridge and inflator, you will almost surely be out of luck. Even substituting a smaller multitool and tire levers, you would still have a very hard time squeezing in more.

      Perfect Size

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Love this thing. Perfect size for one tube, two tire levers and a multi tool. Strap it on and you're good to go.I have a bigger saddle bag for when I need to take more but this thing is perfect for just the bare essentials.
