Though small..... I -LOVE- my handlebar bag! It may front me off (among other things) as a newbie/wannabe/unfollower of "The Rules", but it's VERY handy. (The dog would hafta be mighty small to fit in THIS bag!)
It's a quick-detach bag that can easily be converted into a fanny-pack (if you choose to carry the belt extension). It'll hold my cell phone, civilian wallet, and my cop wallet with documents needed to carry my 2" S&W (also fitting inside the bag). On the sides of the bag are small pouches in which I carry my large (by today's standards) MP3 player, a little Zoon amplifier, extra batteries for the speakers, and a Gatorade cube electrolyte/protien/carb quick snack. Fitted to the hand hold on top, I have a 3"x1"x6" JBL stereo speaker unit.... not too large, not too conspicuous, and sounds absolutely amazing with that Zoon powering it!
If I had a Hybrid.... I wouldn't hesitate to add a (quick detach?) quality wire basket. And I'm such a wannabe rebel, I'd likely mount an old plastic milk crate to a luggage rack on the back too....... just to get rise outa the designer gear elitists.
