At 4L this is just right for stashing anything you might need quickly - a waterproof, tools, phone, a neck tube, snacks. Or all those things at once. It's still small enough to be unobtrusive, though, and doesn't interfere with any hand positions on the bars.

the big plastic T-handle on the draw cord is a welcome detail -it makes dragging it open and closed far easier, especially in gloves.
