SQR Bags

I'm thinking of getting this:



It's the SQR Trax from Harris Cyclery. My question is, how does it do for commuting? I need enough space to carry another pair of shoes (Clipless) along with my wallet, keys and outer pant shell for weather protection. Is it big enough? Any other recommendations?

Thanks...

I like a rack and trunk bag with built in panniers.

Carradice Barley or Pendle with an SQR mount.

barley and nelson might be a tad tight for a pair of shoes, pants AND extra stuff. i'd stick with the trax. or a camper longflap or super c.

I have used a Slim SQR bag (same internal volume, I think, but no side pockets) for a few years now and it's been great! I keep a pair of shoes at work now, but I used to commute with change of clothes, shoes, toiletries, towel (showers at work) and snacks. It fit fine.
