Get ahold of your roll.
Hitting the local trailhead for a few hours on a Saturday just isn't enough for you, and we don't blame you. We, too, get our kicks from exploring what lies beyond the beaten path, diving down forgotten trails that take us for days, or sometimes weeks into that wild beyond to chase down sights seldom seen, and quench our thirst for adventure. The trouble is, no doubt, managing space. AcePac makes it a little easier on us with the Bar Roll Handlebar Bag. The Bar Roll straps conveniently to your handlebars, and features an included connector that gives it a little space between your bars and bag to keep your hydraulic lines and cable routing clear of interference.
It's built to be tough and withstand the adventure ahead, without taking the planet for granted by using Cordura Ecomade Ripstop, made from recycled PET bottles, but with every bit as much abraison-resistance as standard Cordura Ripstop. A polyurethane coating on the fabric helps keep water outside, but if that's not enough it comes with a removable waterproof liner with fully sealed seams to keep your gear desert dry in a downpour. The bottom of the bag is built from burly Tarpaulin to protect your contents from rough trail debris and wheelspray, and areas prone to rubbing your head tube and brake levers are reinforced with a doubled-up layer of Cordura to give you peace of mind on the long and rough rides. Because nobody likes fishing for their chap stick at the bottom of the bag, AcePac designs the Bar Roll Handlebar Bag to open from either side, making it ideal for getting to your gear. Its easy to open and close with its rolltop, and can be adjusted to fit anywhere from eight to sixteen liters of gear, so quick overnighters don't have to result in a slumping half-empty bag.

This bag performed as well as expected. The bag has multiple straps to keep the load tight and prevent it from swaying while riding down the trail. It wasn’t as big as expected, can really only fit a jacket and few other stuff or just a sleeping bag, but at the same time, I didn’t want too much weight on the front because then it would make the ride unstable. Great product. Would recommend.
