Very nice combo
Pros: Rack is very well made, looks good and very high quality materials. Quick release system works great. Nice rear reflector mount. Collapsible grocery bag is well designed. Reasonably lightweight for what it is.
Cons: Zipper used to collapse grocery bag is tight on corners when zipping. Not the highest quality zipper, I'm afraid it will eventually run off track. Even with rack adjusted to furthest "out" position, a full bag encroaches on my available room on my saddle.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this combo in order to carry produce I pick up from my CSA share every week. Previously, I'd been using a collapsible pannier basket with a reusable shopping bag in it, however, that setup had a tendency to damage some produce. This soft grocery bag with a hard plastic base included in this combo is perfect for my use. The hard base guarantees that no small items will get squished between the rack below's rails and the bag is big enough to handle a reasonable amount of produce. Last time I picked up, I carried an icebox watermelon (size of a head of iceberg lettuce), a large summer squash, 2 large cucumbers, a pint of blueberries, a creole tomato, 3 peaches, a quart bag of raw sugar, 1lb bag of okra, 6 jalapenos, and a large bunch of basil. It seemed a bit tight, and not until I got home did I realize that I would have had plenty of room had I folded up the top part of the bag and used the drawstring to pull it closed. Next time, I think I can fit at least as much easily

Pros: Easy to use,nice looking bag.Clips/unclips to a rack in a second.Expandable.Rack has option for mounting bike safety light.
Cons: Bag is rattling on a rack.Clip doesn't look reliable-metal would be better.Bag handles hanging out when bag is filled-wold be good if there would be a strap for handles and top of the bag itself.No reflective strips.No shoulder strap or option for it.Hole for seatpost mounting bolt needed to be cleaned with a drill to make it work properly-there was a bump inside from welding.
Other Thoughts: Took two weeks,4 phone calls (customer service rep was nice though) and 4 emails to get it and in completed order.
