Front bag for winter bike.

Hopefully someone can help me out, looking for a big bag that will clip onto front bars of my dropbar winter bike that will still allow me to mount my lights. Everything I've seen so far stops me mounting my lights and at 4-15 on winter mornings on country roads that's not an option. Don't really want rear saddlebags or panniers. Need to fit my lunch and various other bits in. Cheers.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I use this.

    It fits loads of kit in, and still allows you to fit lights. It even has a little clip on the front to attatched a small ‘be seen’ light to.

    As you can tell, it can get a lot in it.

    Sadly not big enough for lunch and work gear. Ended up changing my mind and going for a rear bag, have ordered a carradice bag with 16 litre capacity. Should be able to get my work gear rolled up tight enough and lunch in it. Hopefully I've made the right choice. https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/luggage/car ... -16-litre/
