    Favorite handlebar bag?

    My saddle bag isn't big enough to hold my headlamp and battery pack, and, my legs rub on the bag when I wear short shorts and I get chafing.

    If you use a handlebar bag, what do you have and do you like it? I don't want something huge, but I want it to be big enough to hold a lamp, a battery pack,and a cell phone.

    When i have a need for a handlebar bag, I use this: http://www.epicrideresearch.com/product-information.php.

    It holds a bunch of stuff, but doesn't take up oodles of handlebar space or interfere with my headlight.

    ooooh, i didn't even think of the headlight issue - thanks for mentioning that. I take off my helmet lamp at dawn but it's still dark enough that i need a flashy on the handlebars. And a lot of the bar bags I'm seeing will cover that up - didn't even think of that. Thanks for the link - those look nice

    The perfect solution:

    http://www.wallbike.com/berthoud/smallsaddlebag.html

    Works well as a handlebar bag. Slim, compact but roomy enough for my primary and backup headlight batteries. I probably could fit a few more things in there, as well (i.e. cell phone, multi-tool, etc). Doesn't interfere with either headlight (bar mounted) or bike handling. Looks good, too.

    High quality in terms of fabric, construction, etc. Extremely durable. Holds up well in all weather (including rain). Have one on each of my road bikes and on my Orbit.

    Based on the name, I think http://www.wallbike.com/berthoud/ber...mall-saddlebag is the one Selike recommended.
