I didn't know a saddle bag could make me as angry as the Silca Seat Roll Asymmetrico

The previous model bounced off my bike into the gutter never to be seen again: this one ends up dangling from the saddle rails

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The roll pack is a nice idea when it comes to packing. But no one wants to have to stop and reattach their saddle pack. Less so when riding in a group. A simple strap around the seatpin would hold it in place and likely solve the problem. Ditching the the Boa dial and using Velcro would probably give better results too. Boas are great on a pair of shoes, but no good in this application.

We don't often give products a score of one star out of five but the Silca Asymmetrico deserves it. The one thing a saddle pack needs to do is stay attached to your saddle and hold your spares. And the Silca doesn't.

There are several different designs for the humble seat pack. From big ones to small ones, ones that clip on to the saddle rails, and most commonly those fixed on with Velcro straps.
