Side pockets are always handy so you don't have to go rummaging around inside. Mars bars etc!
With all this on the outside what are you going to put in it, too big for just tools. :D

As Arceye suggested earlier a smaller one is what the off roads boys would need, less cumbersome and less room for tools and spares too bounce around, maybe at the same base size to make it an easy option but 2-3" tall(then have the map pocket and cargo net ;) )
I think the caveman is onto something here....... :lol: :lol:
Invented fire and the wheel, a bag is nothing.

Got to carry on constructing an inside toilet now. :D

BTW, a bit of useless info, the spare wheel/tyre or Stepney wheel as it was referred to was invented in Llanelli. ;)

I think the bag looks good and very functional . Well done on the design

For a day out, looks ideal for carrying the usual kit (inner tubes, pump, cambelt, clutch cable , maps , camera ,cuddly toy :D , drinks and snacks etc).

Was at Excel show today and had a look around for a cheap off road bag. :D
Not very successful though, the cheap ones had magnet flaps and no secure attachment other than bungies which is a pain to get into.
The expensive ones were just that, expensive ! About Ă‚ÂŁ80 for a bloody small bag ! :shock:

What about a flap over the zip to stop rain from getting in?
