Topeak TourGuide Handlebar Bag

The Topeak TourGuide Handlebar Bag comes in two sizes. The other is the Topeak TourGuide Handlebar Bag DX which I have sold away and replaced with this current handlebar bag. I like this current model because it has many pockets especially the side pockets for organised storage or a quick draw. It is smaller and weighs lesser,the bag has only a capacity of 5 litres, weighs around 670g and the material is of padded Denier Nylon.

On the top part of the bag, you can place a provided clear map case which is Velcro to the bag. The map case can be folded in half. Do note the map case is not waterproof. It has a padded carry-on handle.

The upper pocket has more mini pockets for note book, credit cards, pen map etc.

Both side pockets have external elastic mesh pockets. Ideal for storing pocket cameras, wet handkerchief and other small items which requires a quick draw.

The front pocket has a 3M reflective strip and a nylon strap to mount lightings. It is big enough to store sunglasses and other miscellaneous. 

The most interesting part of the bag is the main compartment. The map case can be Velcro to the upper part of the bag for storage. Inside the compartment there are 4 organised pockets and a detachable Velcro organiser to adjust the spacing. I think you can fit a SLR camera.

It comes with a Nylon shoulder strap

Rain cover is provided but it can't fully cover the bag. 

The mounting bracket is made of plastic and it comes with a safety wire which I do not understand the use here. But do be careful when mounting the bracket because I had damaged the thread and ended up ordering another set.

The mounting bracket comes with an adaptor to mount cyco-meter or GPS. Personally I do not use it because the adaptor does not have a proper fitting, with one hard pull, it will come off .
