Seatpost bags?

I have seen a bag that clips onto the seatpost of a bike and sticks out over the rear wheel, almost like a mudguard, but had plenty of space for equipment. I thought they would be really useful for long off road rides.

They look like this: - but at £44 it is a bit pricey for a bag...

Has anyone had experience with these whilst mountain biking and which ones are the ones to get?

  • years ago either mbuk or mbr gave away a saddle bag with one issue! i used to use it all the time! carried all the spares and tools etc in there, saved a lot of the back pack,
    have noticed that a lot fo the 'keener' riders about use them for essentials instead of lugging alot of kit in a back pack!

    Wow, that's a big bag.

    Don't know how big they do, but I believe Top Peak do a decent range of seatpost bags.

    That's huge!

    I used to take one MTBing until it split whilst DJing in the woods. Haven't got around to replacing it yet. They're great for short blasts, topeak do make good ones, and you can fit a tube, multi-tools, patches, levers, keys etc into them. Pump can fit on the frame etc. However, if you're taking a smallish camelbac anyway, like a chaos, then you just dump all your stuff in that along with your water. So I rarely miss mine because I nearly always have a bag.

    I use a topeak aero clip on saddle bag. Keep my multi tool, spare inner, repair kit and tyre levers in it. Less weight on my back!

    I use a top peak but I have the one with the quick release straps it just seems a bit more secure than the one with a clip

    rucksacks are okay if youre out all day but I hate having a rucksack bouncing on my back when I am only out for an hour or two
