Since its inception, Silca has been elevating the humble floor pump to the realm of art. The Seat Roll Premio does the same for the saddle bag. Though the body is waxed, waterproof cotton shot through with reflective threading, the Roll Premio's key feature is actually the inclusion of a Boa dial instead of the usual hook-and-loop strap. The Boa wire buckle is a lower profile, more elegant solution for attaching the Roll Premio to saddle rails. It also matches your shoes.
When not secured to the saddle, the Roll Premio folds open, providing uninhibited access to each of its three internal pockets. This lets you max out its capacity without trying to overcome the restrictions of a too-small opening—all to common on saddle bags that unzip at one end.

Love this thing.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Went to this last year from more-traditional saddle bags from Topeak and Ortlieb. The nylon feels bulletproof and I love how tightly the boa cable lets me cinch the roll against the saddle rails - no swinging around like you get with velcro straps.
A few things to note. It's not fully-enclosed, so it will let water in during a serious downpour. If you don't seriously crank the boa down the pack and sort of flip itself over, coming loose and swinging around. It won't fall off the bike, but it will dump your supplies all over the road. Also, it's not for carrying the kitchen sink: mine is pretty stuffed with a spare tube, CO2 canister, adhesive patches, small multitool and pair of tire levers. If I wanted a second tube it'd be in my jersey pockets.
All that said, it's still my favorite every-ride carry.
