The original archetypal high quality touring tyre has now been completely revised.

" I can't praise these 'bomb proof' tyres enough.
I bought these for a paris-Roubaix sportif. Running the full length of the route and including all 28 sections of cobbles we were advised to carry 5 tubes. Despite going passed countless victims at the side of the road changing tubes I manage the whole route WITOUT A SINGLE PUNCTURE! The only one of anyone I spoke to that managed it, indeed most people said they had at least 2-3.
The added friction is minimal and the benefits are undoubted.
As a commuter or winter tyre I'd recommend these without any doubt!

Pros: Durable, Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Rugged, Good Fit

" I recently purchased this for a European tour.
Firstly the installation is super easy and the system is great. A solid handlebar mount that looks well put together and proved to be solid.
The ease at which the bag can be clicked in and out is a real bonus. I eventually gave up the fear of looking like a tourist and used it as a day bag.
The inside is padded and strong. I kept a large lensed camera in there and it remained safe and unscathed on a 4000km+ journey.
The map holder on top (provided with the bag and not an expensive extra) is also great, easy to access.
My main worry was that the bag wasn't waterproof. this proved un warranted. The waterproof layer inside remained waterproof during hours of downpour. Its also bright yellow so doubles a s an aid to visibility in the murky weather.
the side pockets are great for sweets, phones or ipods (all the neccessities) and the top zip section provides easy access to wallet, cards and other such things.
All in all this is a superb piece of kit. On returning home i've realised just how reliant i was on this. Stuffing a jersey pocket with haribo and apples now seems cumbersome after the luxury of a touring bag!
There are others out there, notably the ortlieb, that appear to offer more but honestly, look no further than this awesome bag!

Would this bag be appropriate to fit a work folded work shirt and a luch pack?

yep, for sure.
The internal dividers are velcro and removeable. has so much space. mine held a digital slr camera with massive lense.
