”A WELL DESIGNED AND THOUGHT OUT PRODUCT THAT ADDS A VERY FUNCTIONAL STORAGE SOLUTION TO YOUR BIKE THAT ALSO LOOKS GREAT!
First impressions of the top tube bag are that it looks great. It has a nice simple design combining a nice simple aesthetic with high-quality fabrics and materials. The bag is made from waterproof materials and features a waterproof zip meaning you can use this product in all weather conditions to store your phone, snacks, dog treats etc safely when our riding in the elements.
There are two fitting styles available when purchasing the Poo-Chi Pouch. A “Super Stable Velcro Fastening” or “Two Cut to Size Velcro Straps”. In this review, we are looking at the Super Stable Velcro version. This has two velcro straps built into the product. One that goes around your steerer tube under your stem and the other that is wide and wraps around your top tube. To test this product I mounted it to my Cipollini All-Road Gravel Bike and the bag fits perfectly and looks great.
The bag due to it’s well thought out velcro strap design stays firmly in place and doesn’t interfere with your riding. As the bag is mounted on the top tube it is easily accessible even when riding. The zip features a toggle which makes it easy to open and close even when wearing thicker winter gloves. I had no trouble accessing items in the pouch whilst riding.
Inside the pouch, you can see that it features a divider which not only lets you separate your items but also gives some rigidity to the pouch when empty.
All in all, I am really impressed with this product. Bark + Ride have clearly put in a lot of time and effort when developing the product. Little extras such as the reflective logo offer extra safety without compromising on the overall aesthetic. The product works really well and looks brilliant.
