Fieldsheer Expander Tail Bag As long as the weather holds, I will be doing every chore on my bike. That can get cumbersome, but I'm stubborn and still pretty sure you can transport a 6-foot piece of conduit on a bike. There's got to be a way...

Regardless, a good bag will hold most of what you need. Fieldsheer's Expander tail bag is big enough for a fully-loaded sack of groceries. We're talking paper bags, not those little plastic ones. For a weekend trip, you ought to be able to fit your clothes, gear, snacks, and whatnot in the fully expanded 16-inch wide, 16-inch long, and 11-inch high bag. The width goes down to 12.5 inches when you don't need the room.

Constructed of 1680 denier ballistic nylon, the Expander boasts a waterproof outer shell. I'm confused as to why it comes with a rain cover if it's waterproof, so you might want to use the cover just to compensate for Fieldsheer's apparent uncertainty on the matter.

A rigid base with a neoprene protector helps this bag keep its shape and makes your stuff easy to find. There are a few organizer pockets and external pockets to save you dig time, and lots of reflectors to help keep you safe. The mounting system has the option of built-in bungees with removable neoprene protectors, or saddlebag attachment. Both methods are quick release for easy carry off.

The worst complaint I've heard about this tail bag is that it fades in the sun -- after three years. Fieldsheer has included all the features that riders want and didn't go overboard adding things that are cute, but completely unnecessary. The suggested retail is about $90, but you can find the Expander for a much better price if you look around.
