Favorite pod style bag?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Favorite pod style bag?

I don't know the exact name for it... but it's the equivalent of the Topeak ProPack Micro/Small...
The pod that just hangs from the rails of the seat

I don't mind too much about capacity because I usually just place in a bag my keys and small cell phone.

What are your guy's favorite POD bags?

Thanks

I have the nashbar pod thing.. it works great as long as your seatpost doesnt need to be jammed all the way forward.. it takes up an inch or 2 of rail space in the back for the mount.

Embrace your Fredside, don't hide behind sarcasm. You know you really NEED those extra bottles.

I don't like a saddle bag that needs a special adapter to attach to the seat. What if you want to swap it around from bike to bike, or a friend lets you borrow their bike and you need to put your bag on it? A couple straps of Velcro is much more convenient, IMO.

My fave:

The thing I like about the adapter / clamp type is they don't swing around under your seat.

I have an avenir seat bag that has a rubber clamp for the seatpost and a regular strap for the seat rails .. I like it other than the avenir written on it

Yeah, others I've used did that, generally bigger ones. I really like this one b/c it's just big enough for what I need (tube, tool, 2 CO2) and nothing else - i.e. no wasted space. It tucks up nice and tight under the seat, and I've never noticed it swaying. But to each his own. Ride on.

i know i'm a fred. i'm a fred for just owning a road bike, drop handle bars=fred, moreso if you never use the drops. seriously though, i hate having to stop every 15miles to fill up two bottles, yeah i could use the break but its not always easy to find a park and it scary to run out of water on a new route.

is seat h20 bottles really fred and are camlebacks also fred? sorry for being a noob-fred.

edit do people only carry one tube in their saddle bags? thought you need two just incase. does the other go into the jersey or do you tie it to the saddle bag.

also do you guys carry multi tool kits?
