Right Size for the Essentials

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size

I have both the Micro Cache and the regular Cache, so I can compare. The Micro Cache will hold a standard weight 700Cx25mm spare tube (works for a 28mm tire for duration of ride), 2 CO2 cartridges, 1 Genuine Innovations Microflate Nano inflator, a small Blackburn tool, 1 Park Tool blue tire lever and some folded money. I pack it with cartridges on the bottom, tube in middle, tire lever in sleeve in the top, small tool down one side and inflator at open end with folded cash in the netting. I use the regular Cache with a larger 700Cx32mm tube on my gravel bike and pack it the same way. I carry a second tube in my jersey or a bento bag on long rides. Works for me. No more soaked car keys, money or rusty tool.

Bare minimum size, but perfect for me

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer
Fit:
True to size

My Silica finally needed replaced after several years. I liked the Silica, but was looking for something a little more narrow towards it's front. My legs would sometimes rub against it. So, I wanted to find a small, sleek looking bag to replace it with. The Lizard Skin Micro seemed to fit the bill... The bag attached nicely under my Fizik saddle. To rear straps secure it tightly to the seat rails the the front strap attaches high up on the seat post. My legs do not make contact with it when I peddle and it fits tight and cleanly under my saddle. It appears to be fairly durable. I rode on wet winter roads with it and I was able to wipe it clean. As far as space...bare minimum. Tube, lever, C02 and boot and patch kit. That's about it. So, it's definitely not for everyone. I do many miles and most of them are solo, so I try to keep everything as aero as possible, so that's why I lean towards the smaller bags. You can also see on this photo Ive attached the Lezyne Tech Drive mini pump which is mounted on the rear cage. Fits nicely on bike. This was reviewed also.

Really high quality, so-so design.

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

It has a very streamlined shape where it tapers to become very narrow at the portion nearest the seat post. This makes it look cool, but not very conducive to storage. I had a hard time fitting a road tube+2 levers+ 1 can co2 and adapter + 1 SMALL multi tool. There was still volume left but it was difficult to close. I'd rather not have to play Tetris on the roadside, so I opted for the blackburn grid. To me the grid looks similar in size but it's rectangular, so I can actually fit a MTB tube + all that other stuff (and more). The Lizard skin would probably last longer than the one I went with. This thing seems to be expertly crafted. It is beautiful and made from a really nice, obviously water resistant material (almost like it's coated in wax). The zippers are covered with some other material that is water resistant as well. My one other complaint is how it fastens. It has the traditional two straps for the seat bars and one strap for the seat post. If you want to keep it tight up under the seat, it may be difficult to open because of the zipper placement. You basically have to stick your fingers between the bag and seat, and I found that I needed to let it hang down slightly to make it a little more accessible. TLDR: Beautiful bag, so-so design. I would say if you don't carry an extra tube this thing will be a very decent choice, especially if you value appearance. If you do carry a road tube, you might consider going up to the next size, or looking elsewhere. It probably goes without saying, but if you need to carry a mtb tube, absolutely look into something bigger.

Way too Small

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

This seat bag is petite, it doesn't hold much at all after your tube is stuffed in, the inside is short and narrow, the zipper a bit stiff, not for me ...

Sleek and slim and built tough

Great sized bag, fits a tube, levers and a multi tool. The construction is bulletproof and it straps on close for that nice, low-profile look. Totally recommended.

Well-made, sleek 'essentials' saddlebag

This is a well-made bag that sits snuggly and sleekly under your seat. As a minimalist, I'm looking for the smallest, lightest, quality item that can still get the job done. This micro cache is it - minimalist, streamlined bag will hold the essentials - spare tire, tire irons, and a multitool. However, if you're going to add a few things like patches, stem extenders, and cash, I find this micro bag gets tight and repacking it requires a specific repacking system (patch first, tube, multitool (crank bros), irons, stem extenders, money) or else. So for a bit more room, I think I'd go for the regular sized lizard skin model. That way, after you flat and are trying to go as fast as possible to get back riding (time, nightfall, catching up with group) and you're cramming things thoughtlessly into the cache (stuffing the tube unrolled for ex) you can get away with it until you get home and reorganize it.

If you were to do it again would you get the standard cache or the micro like you have?

Is there a strap on all the Cache bags for a tail light?

Are the interior volumes for the Micro and Super Cache available?

will this hold a spare tube, a multi tool, and tire levers. Don't need anything else in the bag. Thanks
