It’s a pricey handlebar bag, but I believe it is the best. The Super C and Ortlieb are excellent alternatives, but what I particularly like about this is 1) the Garmin or iPhone positioned on top of the bag 2) the stub to the side for a bell 3) the bar mount and ease of fitting and taking on and off the bike 4) the overall quality of it
