*From NY Times Wirecutter:

A bike handlebar bag is simple. It’s a fanny pack for your bike, built with consideration for all of your bike-specific needs, like being able to open it while you’re riding, or having access to a subway card or a key. While a good one can’t change your life, it can save you from showing up with a sweaty back after pedaling across town to the office, the party, or the office party. And maybe showing up less sweaty to that party will change your life. After spending almost 20 hours interviewing cycling professionals and researching handlebar bags on the internet, we picked 14 bags, put them on our bikes, and started riding. And now we’re sure that the Road Runner Bags California Burrito is the best choice for anyone looking to change their ride.

The Road Runner Bags California Burrito is simply designed in a way that’s effective, elegant, and durable all at once. This 3.3-liter, tube-shaped bag (about the size of a six-pack) fits all the essentials you might need for a day on your bike: wallet, phone, keys, some tools, snacks, and a light jacket. This is the biggest bag that Road Runner makes—yes, you could get away with a smaller bag, but having some extra room is convenient. The nylon straps are movable to fit your bar width, and that simple yet unique feature makes this bag stand out from the other bags we tested. It has a single zipper that’s easy to operate while you’re on your bike and side pockets for small items you might want to access quickly. Made of durable Cordura nylon, it comes in six fun colors to match your bike. The California Burrito also readily converts into a shoulder bag with Road Runner’s universal shoulder strap (sold separately).
