I have a thruhiking pack made of a much thinner, less dense version of LiteSkin. All who saw it believed it wouldn't last a weekend, but it's done two Te Araroa tramps (length of NZ) and many other hikes without a blemish nor a leak, and it really is light. That's what drew me to the Top Loader in LiteSkin 42. I haven't had it for long enough to comment on durability, but I am confident about that because of previous experience with the material. Other pros of this product: the size is ideal for my needs (whereas all other TT bags I've owned have been too big or too small) and the cable port - all too rare on TT bags, IMO - is excellent. I run a cache battery in my TT bag that is connected by USB cable to my Cinq Pure stem cap (itself connected to a Son 28 dynamo). From the cache battery, I run a cable back out to my head unit, so I need to pass two cables through the port. The Top Loader can handle that whilst retaining waterproofness. All good! While a zip closure wasn't my ideal choice, the zip on this product is well-positioned and rugged enough for easy and secure access. Very happy so far, and the stichwork and design seems thorough and sensible.
Real good quality bags and good workmanship, these look like they will last the distance
I love this little bag! Perfect size for snacks and easy to open and close while riding!
I bought this to do the Alps to Ocean and to have essentials handy. It was compact yet big enough to put snacks sunscreen and glasses in. Highly recommend- everyone commented on how sleek it looks and how well made it is. Support local!
Super impressed with this bag, I looked around for a long time until I found the right one. Took it on a section of the Queen Charlotte last weekend and was great. Only reason I didn't get the Fidlock magnetic was so I can switch it between bikes!

The Top Loader has one 50mm wide velcro strap for attaching the bag to the top tube of the frame. An additional slim bungee strap for wrapping around the head tube allows it to work even when there are no spacers between your stem and headset. Want to put a battery inside the bag to charge from a Dynamo or to run an external light? No problem, just run the cable through the port at the front of the bag.
