It's actually a boot bag from the horse riding dept of our local Decathlon. It fits on my rack perfectly, though it'll need some loops or other sewing on to make it more secure. I might even attatch some velcro straps from another pannier so I can remove it relatively easily. The best thing is that it expands upwards to about twice its size, so I might even be able to use it for touring.
that is a great suggestion!
I bought that decathlon bag you are showing and just used it on a 200km trip with my Dahon Roo D7 and the bag was really good. It even exceeded expectations by surviving a storm, keeping all my clothes dry.
I bought it because a seller was not able to deliver a set of panniers in time for leaving for a small tour on the river PO delta here in italy.
The bag is not made to resist the test of time, and it has no hooks or velcros to secure it to the rack but it is large and well made and for less than 20 euros is a steal.
Thank you again for your suggestion!
Hey, great it worked out. How did you attach it, bungee cords?
yes I used 6 bungee cords, probably more than needed but wanted to be sure that the tall shape of the bag was firm.
I will try to post a pic later.
What really surprised me it was the resistance to the rain, it kept things dry during an half an hour storm in open fields with no chance to find repair under trees or buildings.
It's not a waterproof bag but I thought it was not even water resistant considering also the mesh opening on one side.
The only wet things I found were in the external pocket.
Yes, you saying it seemed remarkably waterproof surprised me. Then again, I suppose, it's designed to carry muddy boots, so it must have some water resistance. I'd still opt for a bin liner inside, though just to make sure.
Ahhh, I see how you've done it there. I was thinking of eventually getting round to stitching some loops on the bottom so I can slip the bungee through, and a velcro strap on the back to attach to the seat tube to hold it. When I get round to it, I'll post a pic.
