I didn't see any threads doing a big comparison even though I am sure they exist. If you know of one please let me know.
So... looking for a handlebar bag for commuting and moderate rides. I'm looking at the Ortlieb Ultimate series and like what I see except they are pricey. Probably worth it, I don't know.
I'd like to have one that opens from the biker side, has a map case or the ability to add one, and the bag should be easily removable. The Ortlieb Ultimate series is all this except I am sure many others have these features. I could just buy one but I'd like your personal experiences.
