This is probably one of my favorite bike bags of all time. Not only is it unbelievably cheap but it’s so super useful. I’ve had my Eleven81 triangle bag for a few years now and it’s served me well. The versatility of it works well as I’ve mounted on my stem of my bike, my seatpost and now it’s mounted as a shark’s fin on my seatpost to use for the TNGA.
I generally put my iphone in a plastic bag and then shove it in the Eleven81 triangle and zip it up. It also is handy for holding nutrition as well. I’ve attempted to listen to music while riding from it but I’ve found that ends up with yanked earphone cords when you get off your bike and forget they were on there.
One caveat is that it’s not really waterproof so if pick one up, don’t think you can just throw anything in there and consider it “protected.” But a few gu’s, your phone (in a ziplock bag) and your keys work great. It makes it easy to reach down and unzip while riding as so you don’t have to slow down.
It also makes a handy place to put in your ultralight medkit, canned air or must-haves you carry with you when out on the trail. I’ve even put it on my road bike before as well.
If you’re looking for something inexpensive but well-built, this is a fantastic little bag to have. You can snag one at Amazon for fifteen bucks.
I’m going to be reviewing all my gear for the Trans North Georgia Adventure Race (TNGA) soon enough – I’m just waiting for everything to come in so I can give a proper review. So hold tight and I’ll have everything in a nice chart format as well as weight and links.
