What’s good? You’ve gotta love a dry bag. I ride in all weathers, all year, and have de­stroyed plenty of ruck­sack con­tents thanks to wa­ter ingress in the past. But use one of these as a liner, and it won’t mat­ter how hard it rains. I use this 13-litre bag in­side my Kr­iega R20, and as a pan­nier-liner when I’m go­ing sans ruck­sack. It’s made from 210D Tarpaulin with a wa­ter-re­sis­tant in­ner layer, re­in­forced base, and welded seams all round. It’s proved durable in use, too. It’s of­ten crammed with var­i­ous junk, and has showed no signs of stretch­ing or tear­ing – and be­cause it’s a roll-top bag, when you’ve not got much in it, it will roll down to the small­est size pos­si­ble. An in­valu­able ad­di­tion to my bike kit. I’ve now stepped up to the three-bag set (4l, 8l, 13l, £22.99), and find the smaller bags use­ful for phone/cam­era/wal­let etc, too.

What’s not? If you like sub­tle colours, you’re out of luck – it’s red or fluro yel­low only, de­pend­ing on which bag you buy. That aside, I can’t find any­thing to note against them.
