BTR Handlebar Storage Bike Bag With Removable Shoulder Strap
The review I will be doing this time is for a Handlebar Bag from a company called "BTR" Direct, which are based in East Sussex, [do have a look a look at their website, it has many other cycling accessories at really advantageous prices!] well on with the review of the Handlebar Bag, this bag sits on the front handle bars of your bike and depending on your brake cables this will determine how well it is placed on the front bar.
This bag is made from a Strong Shell Polyester construction, which they say "will offer a decent amount of water resistance" and as it sits up on the front of the bike, it will need to have.
The BTR Direct Handlebar bag is secured to your front handle bar by 3 Velcro straps which are fitted to the bag, two fit around the bar, and one (depending on type of bike you have) around the front stem/cables.
How easy is it to fit.To find out how easy it was to fit, I first tried it on a drop bar design road bike.
How easy to fit it to a Specialized Allez
10 out of 10 for Quality and Design!
I will be trying this out on other makes of bike as soon as I can.

As you can see it fits well and doesn't interfere with any of the cables or the brakes which is obviously very important.
I fiddled with the strap that goes around the stem as it does come up a tad short but as you can see I got it there.
I can't comment on it's waterproof claims as although the skies were threatening it didn't actually rain; of course now that I am home the sun has come out!
