Porcelain Rocket - Mission control handle bar set up

Hi Everybody 
Don here with another product review 

When I first heard about bike packing I searched the net to see who was making high quality bike packing bags and two main companies were mentioned for their outstanding quality and durability - Revelate Designs  & Porcelain Rocket. I was in need of a way to carry my sleeping bag and air mattress plus other small items without anything getting wet, imagine the disaster if your sleeping bag got wet while touring - no thanks !. So I decided to buy the Porcelain Rocket mission control handle bar set up , Porcelain Rocket is based in Calgary in Canada where the owner Scot Felter sews all his bags . His line up includes two different sizes of saddle bags, the handle bar bag mentioned in this post plus he will custom make you an entire set of bags in the color of your choice to fit your bike no matter what frame size you have. They are not cheap but very well made and after 3 over night trips I am still amazed at how much stuff you can carry in the handle bar bag. The main compartment is designed around a 10 ltr OR dry bag but there is plenty of room for extra clothes at each end and the front pocket that can be detached is very useful for smaller items as well.  For more info check out his website at
Pictured below is the mission control handle bar set up bag mounted on my 2013 Kona Unit
