The bag is durable and very functional.
There is plenty of space in the main center compartment. I put a small cooler in there with my helmet and a few other items.
The rear facing pouch is excellent for storing items for quick access. Wallet, keys, etc., freeing your pockets of these items on a long ride. These items are easily accessed at gas stops, etc. from this pouch.
I haven't used the two detachable side pouches much as of yet, but think that they would be useful for some sort of quick release functionality. I may use one for a first aid kit, and the other for a personal hygiene kit. Sometimes it's nice to hop off the bike, go inside and wash my hands and face to revive a bit.
The exterior water/pop bottle pouches are very handy, although liquids don't stay cool for long in the black material.
The bag connects easily to the King tour pack luggage rack.
I have not had reason to use the rain fly yet, but anticipate that it will work as designed.
If there's one con to the entire thing, it's that the aerodynamics of the bag on top of the tour pack make the bike a little trickier to handle at high speeds, especially with cross winds.
Additionally, I thought the price was a bit steep, but the product is of very fine craftsmanship and constructed of durable materials and looks like it will hold up for a considerable amount of time.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the Dakota T-bag. It's a very useful and well made product.
