Thoughts on this bag

I just want a smaller handlebar bag for a rain jacket and some food for longer rides. Doe's anybody use this bag. I have a small Topeak bag, but I think it's a little heavy for what I'm doing.I had the Topeak bag and a rack on the bike and a light and it weighed 36#. I took off everything but my saddle bag and frame pump and I got it down to 27#. I was thinking that this bag shouldn't add to much weight.

Looks like it would limit your hand positions.
I use the 2L topeak "compact" bag which is about a pound.
