IMO, a tennis can, even in this seatpost configuration, is preferable to an expandable saddle bag for winter clothes carriage.
You know? You're right. Time to HTFU and stop making excuses!

I already actually have this:

I used it on a couple centuries last year...didn't like it. When it held 1 or 2 full bottles, it seriously effected the bike's center of mass and even my riding--especially when I was out of the saddle. But, I suppose that's just a matter of getting used to. One thing I don't like, though, is I have to remove the seat-post to install it or take it off. I need one with a quick-release or something.

But, my 40-mile commute in the morning is a bit long for only one large water bottle, even in the winter. So, if I used this, I could now have more room for water.

And then, of course, there's this...
