Wanted a ride wallet to carry phone, cash, CC, etc. This fits the bill but the execution could be better. The transparent pouch zipper is difficult to pass things through (to small for an iPhone) and hard to get things out, especially if wearing gloves. The zipper would have been more helpful lengthwise.
After a year of riding around with a repurposed diabetic testing supply pouch in the back of my jersey the zippers became corroded shut. This little manpurse has been the perfect replacement. It holds a tube, lever, and c02 infalter with ease, along with a $20 and my business card wrapped in plastic.
I don't really know if the sticky nubs help at all - I actually ride with the frog-side against my spine as it has slightly more padding. But it doesn't matter. This thing fits in center pocket and gets the job done.
I own both the large and smaller sticky pod(s). For longer rides I employ the elongated sticky pod(s). Shorter rides call for the smaller pod(s). In both I'm able to insert credit cards, ID card, cash, patches, spare tire, house keys, tire changing tools, wrenches,etc. I used to carry these items carry in my 3 bib pockets. All these ride necessary accoutrements now fit in my sticky pod(s). Thus I'm organized, aerodynamic, and far more comfortable now that the contents are no longer weightily, ungainly occupying my three bib pockets. Too, my ride is now more comfortable since I no longer fill my three bib pockets with content. Instead, I'm able to put these ride necessities in my sticky pod(s). In addition, the silicon grippers serve as an adhesive while the pod (s) rests in one bib pockets thus preventing the pod for ejecting out of my bib pocket. For extremely long rides I use 3 sticky pods in my 3 bib pockets. YOU GOTTA' BUY MORE THAN ONE OF THESE RIDE NECCESSITIES!!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT. Despite the many cycling stores in San Francisco, I purchase all my cycling apparel, tools, etc at Western Bikeworks. Their prices and outstanding quality of merchandise is unbeatable. Ride safe.
No more plastic baggies for me. This little pouch holds all my important stuff, keeps the stuff dry and makes it easy to get what you want when you want it. Fits so easily in a jersey pocket. I will probably buy some more of these to use as gifts.
I've grown a little tired of the pouches hanging beneath my saddle. Let's face it, a bike looks cleaner without a saddle bag!
This Sticky Pod is a perfect alternative. It carries the essentials $20, tube, C02, chuck, and a few levers. Not much room for anything else, but what else do you need?
I love this product! I use it on every ride, short or long. I keep it stocked with spare tube,CO2 cartridge, spare cash, and still have room for my IPhone. It's extremely lightweight, fits easily into a jersey pocket, and provides you with the security of knowing things you carry and need are zippered in and always with you. I have ordered several and given to fellow cycling friends as gifts!
It holds my mobile phone, car key, spare cash and backup credit card for those rare emergencies. It stays in my rear jersey pocket and the rubber grips hold it in place over the roughest terrain. I don't know that I would bring it on an organized endurance ride like a century since I tend to travel without these items for such events, but it would work.
