Anybody use this bag

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.

Must be this one. It's the only bag where the URL ends the same as the link the OP posted:

I use a small handlebar "tube." I've found the smaller bag keeps me down to essentials.

I have a very similiar one which I use for daily riding. I even think it's the same dimensions and has the same pockets. It holds a small U-Lock and cable, map, a few bars, sandwich, an orange, a rain _resistant_ jacket, wallet/phone.

Some observations:

I have brifters on my bike and the cables cross on top of the bag. I have to work through the cables to open it.

I have it resting on a front rack. The rear wall is slightly floppy when it is not filled. A decaleur would be ideal, but then it would add weight to your bag which you said don't want.

Thanks for the replies guys. That sounds like what I'm going to be carrying, so it should work out pretty good.
