Saw this interesting frame pack and was wondering if anyone here has any experience with them. My kid could use one. Cheers.

First thought I had was if you put much in it, might rub your knees/legs. I had a much smaller pack on my top tube at the head tube and had to move it for that reason.
Maybe for kids on trips to school it would be ok.
My younger daughter had one on her Diamondback. She saw it on a trip to the LBS and darn near wore it out, might've too if the bike hadn't been stolen. Isn't large enough for school duties (around here anyway). A plus was that it didn't scratch her frame, but her's mounted more to the seat tube and tighter on the top tube with wide nylon straps.
