The Revelate Designs Mountain Feedbag has been proven to be worth their weight in gold by both ultra endurance athletes and backcountry bikepackers. The Mountain Feedbag provides ample and quick one handed access through a wide opening drawstring top with cinch.
Made of 3 layers the MountainFeedbag has a durable abrasion resistant exterior to hold up through all of your bushwacking adventures. The Center layer is constructed from foam that not only gives the bag some shape but also adds some insulation and padding to protect things like SLR lenses. The liner of the MountainFeedbag is made from Revelate Designs' signature yellow nylon liner for excellent contrast, making small objects more visible. The liner can also be pulled out to make it easy clean off the left over bit and pieces of trail mix or energy bars.
The Mountain Feedbag can be mounted on either the left or right side of your handlebar or buy 2 and run one on each side for even more capacity. Mesh outer pockets keep non-weather sensitive items such as Chapstick, sunscreen or gels in an easy to get to position. The round shape of the Mountain Feedbag can also hold things like water bottles, bear spray or SLR camera lenses so that you can document your bikepacking trip.

To lead off on this review, I want to say I got my first one of these for my Salsa CutThroat despite having a top tube bag already on that bike.
It is just so convenient. You could use it to hold a bottle, or you can put food in it or like me, I store a tube, random tools, food and maybe a battery for my Garmin that has way less battery life than advertized :)
There are even mesh pockets around the edge of the bag. It can be mounted on the left or right of the stem. The closure is super simple and once you get it, you do not even think about it.
This frees up a pocket at a minimum, or like it my case, it allows me to unload a pocket and maybe bring a vest or shell gloves (just in case stuff).
Do I need to say I love this bag :)
