Tool roll advice and recommendations

    I just got refunded for a faulty handlebar bag from see.sense, and while looking at their website, their tool roll caught my eye.

    Having said that, I'm a bit leery of buying another bag from them.

    Topeak do a burrito tool roll for similar money, I have some of their other bags, and I'm very happy with them.

    Anybody have either bag, or recommendations for another brand, or have you used a tool roll and gone back to a saddle bag?

    I wouldn't normally be one for bumping a thread, but surely someone, somewhere has an opinion on tool rolls Vs saddle bags

    I bought a silca one with the boa dial on here but didn’t get along well it. I found it didn’t look ‘neat’ and was a bit too much faffing around compared to a regular bag. I later sold it on here & then the new owner had an issue with the boa. I think he was getting onto silca about but didn’t hear the outcome.

    I’d say it’s fine if you have particular tool needs that it can solve that a regular bag or tool bottle won’t. Otherwise I would stick with a bag as it’s simpler, neater & less faffing generally. YMMV.

    Side note: if you ever have a problem with a Boa you can get spare parts for free:

    I've done it.
