Let's get loaded.
Pack up all the essentials and stay loaded with the Topeak MidLoader Frame Bag. Providing compact storage of heavy, bulky gear that you need when you're out for a multi-day bikepacking trip, the MidLoader is water-resistant and lightweight to stand up to whatever Mother Nature throws at you. Securing to the top tube, down tube, and seat tube of your frame, the MidLoader takes advantage of the dead space in the front triangle without blocking access to your water bottles. The durable, water resistant construction features two protected zippered openings, allowing for easy access to your precious cargo from either side of the bike.
The Topeak MidLoader Frame Bag is available in two sizes: 3L (37.5 x 12 x 6 cm), or 4.5L (36 x 12 x 6 cm).

Works as stated, but not too sure about how waterproof it will be
I bought the 4.5L model on sale for under $45 at another site. For the money, it is a good value and it allows me to utilize the front water bottle cage on my mtn bike and road bike. The bag is well made but heavy, and it has a zipper on both sides, I'm not sure how useful this is. I also don't know yet how well it will perform on soggy, wet days. The mounting system does work perfect for my bike, utilizing the full length of the top bar. The 4.5L capacity is enough to hold extra water, tools, patch kit, and a few miscellaneous bits and pieces, as you may see fit. When bike packing, I plan to put my tent poles and some heavier kit in it. Overall, if my budget warranted, I would have probably gone with Ortlieb, as their bags are lighter and definitely waterproof, but for the amount of use I give them, this bag was easier to justify purchasing. Oh, yes, one other thing, I would recommend wrapping some clear tape over the contact points on the bike to avoid damage to the finish, goes the same for my Ortlieb bike packing gear.
