For those thinking of picking up the Brompton saddlebag+cover...
I bought this from eBay and I've found the extra zips a godsend in making the cover that much easier to use - and hence I'm using it more often. This is a simple design change that Brompton should definitely consider in their next iteration of their cover.
The top of the bag has two zipper, you can control two openings, a group of bicycle seat out of the bag.
Another group in the middle of the opening, to facilitate the hand into the bag, lift the bike. Can be inserted into the front pocket pull the bike in front of the opening.
The anti-dust cover can be placed in the bike body, and convenient transportation to use.
anti-dust cover and dust bag sets.
The anti-dust cover can be placed in the bike body, the front end of the anti-dust cover reserved for a handle for easy out.

A downside may be the glaring Brompton logo imprinted on the side, though anyone who knows what a "Brompton" is would already be privy to that suspiciously Brompton-like shape.
Also, no saddle bag included - though it seems it can be inserted into the hollow top tube for safekeeping.

very interesting .I just might buy one to see how well it works out.The brompton cover works well but being able to properly control the openings could be a real game changer
putting a couple back-up zipper pulls on the zipper is a cheap thing to throw in .. too bad the thing 'Dust Cover' has no bottom.
so making it a bike Cozy like you would put over your toaster in the kitchen. so the zipper is not even needed.
Big bin liner bag for yard waste would do as much ..
the material cannot be that much studier than a bin bag if it all stuffs into the frame tube
So you open the zip to reach inside to lift the bike by the bike itself, that nose handled saddle.
BTW after the fact it is possible to open sewn seams and add zipper pulls.. re sew the seam at its ends.
