Internal mesh sleeve
1.5 L Capacity
Ibera’s SB9 is a strap-on saddle bag with a scooped drop down opening. An additional Velcro strap secures the bag to the seat post of the bike. It has a 1.5 liter capacity and double zippers that allow most cycling essentials to be stored with easy access. This includes multi-tools, spare tires, patch kits, snacks and more. An internal mesh sleeve provides a divider for wallets, keys, or a small camera. Reflective trim and a taillight hanger help add to rider-safety.

Great bag could use improvements
This review is from: Ibera Strap-On Saddle Bag (1.5L)
Pros: The bag has a great form factor to remain out of the way but also have enough space inside for phone, wallet, keys, a multi-tool, and a spare tube. You could also fit a variety of sizes of backup batteries for your phone (which can be large like a S5 or iPhone 6+) or camera. There is a loop for securing certain types of tail lights and it has reflective but not gaudy trim. I was pleasantly surprised by the water shedding nature of the bag; when I sprayed the bike down after a ride and water beaded up and ran off the bag, although I do not believe it is waterproof. After 3-4 off-road rides it still looks new. When strapped down to the seat the bag feels secure and doesn't move, even when loaded down.
Cons: I bought this bag thinking it would be more secure than the single clip, quick release version. However, when loaded with my phone, wallet, keys and a multi-tool (1lb, 9oz), one of the rear seat rail straps ripped loose from the bag on a light off-road ride. Luckily, the other strap held, as well as the seat post strap, and I didn't loose my stuff.
Other Thoughts: In the off chance the manufacturer reads this review, it would also be nice if the inside of the bag was a lighter color to help facilitate finding items inside. The padding fabric inside is black and makes it difficult to find things quickly. I suppose if I am going to fix the strap issue i could also add bright fabric to the inside as well but these things should have been vetted beforehand by the manufacturer.
