The SweetRoll is Revelate Designs stand alone bikepacking handlebar bag featuring dual sided roll down closures so that you do not have to empty the entire bag once you get to a food stop or camp. The Manta Flap allows you to carry non-weather sensitive gear such as a foot print or an additional small dry bag. The bag itself is 100% waterproof for those trips in less than ideal weather. Two rows of Daisy chain webbing allow you to strap on additional small gear in the configuration that best suits your bike and the conditions you will be riding in.
To keep it's shape and to aid while packing and unpacking, Revelate Designs added fiberglass cross bars to the SweetRoll for lightweight, durable rigidity.
Foam block spacers keep the SweetRoll from contacting your bike frame. Bikepacking with a drop bar?

So how big is the medium SweetRoll? The medium measures 7" in diameter and has a max length of 22" giving it a capacity of around 850 cu in. For the best possible handling while out on the trail it is always best to try and place the least amount of gear weight as possible on your handlebars. Bulky-light things like lightweight down jackets or shelters are great for the SweetRoll, heavy things such as fuel canisters are best for your framebag or other low mounted locations.
