Couple of things I like about it compared to my existing bag:
- the two-piece design appears to make it a lot easier or less fiddly to quickly access stuff in the bag and then secure the bag again
- from the description text there appears to be an aluminum frame which would prevent sagging, which in turn results in rubbing the rear wheel, if the contents of the bag aren't neatly organized

However, some things I don't get, and need feedback on:
- according to the Q&A someone asked for the capacity and got quoted 15L...... but from the pictures it just doesn't look/feel like it. Seems about equal or (shorter?) than my Topeak 10L Backloader, so I'm a bit cautious about that.
- based on Rapha's previous line of saddles, shoes and helmets, I'm guessing this one is also a rebranded product. Does anyone know the original manufacturer?
