I stopped by Rickshaw on a recent visit to San Francisco and bought two of these pouches (one for my panniers and one for my messenger). They're the perfect size for basic tools & lights and bright colors make them easy to find among all the other stuff in my bike bags. I hope Rickshaw makes this one of their standard accessories!
LOVE the fabric (wax canvas orange)! LOVE the size! Love everything about it! It is so wonderful I want to buy another... but which fabric should I choose this time?
Bought this for my commuter 2.1 bag to store my odds and ends and its great. The bright colors makes it easy to see/find in the bag and the zipper is high quality and opens/closes very smoothly.
My only regret is that I didn't buy a second one. Two of these in different colors would be the perfect companion to the commuter bag.
This pouch is all it says it'd be. It's well made, and the quality is high.
What I do wish though is that the Utility Pouch made of waterproof X-Pac cloth would have urethane coated YKK zippers instead of regular YKK zippers to really make sure the pouch is weatherproof and keeps water out (as long as it is not submerged under water).
It'd also be very cool if there was a divider running all along the inside of the pouch to segregate items e.g., to keep keys separate from a smartphone's camera lenses.
However, the pouch is everything Rickshaw Bagworks says it is on their website, and the quality is superb, and the pouch looks great. Therefore the pouch still gets 5 out of 5 stars from me.
The urethane coated zipper and divider inside the pouch are merely suggestions on how I believe this already great product could be improved.
