The Revelate Designs Pika Seat Bag is ideal for everything from weekend gravel grinds and to a long day single track ride. The design of this bag allows riders with minimal tire clearance and seat post exposure to access primo additional storage. Revelate incorporated a hefty heavy duty Velcro strap about 2/3 inches wide for seat post support. Per usual, this bag is offered in black, red, multi camo, and crush. The Pika will has a volume of 6-12 liters and weighs 12.6oz.
Personally, I have used this bag to carry my REI Quarter Dome 1p tent, spare tube, and bike tool all at the same time. The tent fits perfectly enough where I am able to fold the ends twice before fastening them. I have also used the Pika to carry both my rain jacket and down jacket for day trips while mountain biking.
I like that this bag rather compact and not bulky. I have had trouble with sway, especially while mountain biking. The Velcro seatpost strap and the dual clips that latch through the saddle appeal to provide a descent amount of support, but I feel as if the bag could benefit from being a little bit stiffer.
