    Bought this the other day too £19.99 off of ebay.
    eBay item number:401433756836 if anyone wants to buy one.
    I was waiting for the Aldi bags to be on sale again, but when I wrote to Aldi they didn't know when they'd be on sale again, so I took the plunge and bought one of theses. It does seem to be very good quality, and I think it should last a while, only time and a downpour will tell. You can also get them in black, but I just liked the look of the yellow one.

    I toured Europe on my Moto Guzzi V7 with bin bags for my sleeping bag and bits not in my rucksack :)

    I just wanted a bit extra carrying capacity, so I thought why not. I always use bin liners in my saddle bags mind.
    I have industrial strength bags too, and they last a long time. But sadly they're not black. :(

    I might bite the bullet on that bag in the OP after Chrimbo, it is a lot larger than I was after, but for £20 and it is collapsable so even with less in it'll be fine for the low use I'll be doing with it! :)

    The reason I went for this bag as well is because I had other bags that were looking a bit worse for wear, and I know I could have just used bin liners, but when I looked at the price of new and the same size bags on line and in our local market, the price wasn't that far away from the bag I've bought so it was a no brainier really.
    @Hippo-Drones It's a lot of bag for £20 and free delivery too.
    I'd be surprised if you were to be disappointed with it

    Bin bags will do a reasonable job but they look totally crap and scream "I'm a cheapskate." If you need waterproof gear then buy waterproof gear, it doesn't need to be overly expensive to do a good job. The bag above (and there are many similar alternatives) proves that. There are no medals handed out for looking like a nob with bin bags. :)

    I quite like the look of a fetching little black bin bag. In the 27years I've been riding, I've only needed to carry kit that needed to stay dry a handful of times. Has never been worth the money at even £20 for me up until now. I find it funny that folk have bag snobbery lol :D

    That's more times than me, I think I've only ever needed the benefits of a waterproof bag twice. A dry bag is much more practical than bin bags. They won't get ripped in the wind and flap about, they are strong, they hold lots and yes, they are much smarter looking. If the convenience and eye appeal of things doesn't hold some kudos in life then perhaps we should all use string as a belt for our trousers and wear old potato sacks for clothes. There are so many things that are all about snobbery but I don't think this is one of them.

    Er, the bin bag(s) lines a stout bag of whatever size/configuration you prefer. Most military Bergens are not wholly waterproof after extensive use but a folded down bin liner .......

    Only Superman wears his pants on the outside....

    But why would anyone go to the bother of putting one bag inside another when you can easily get a bag that does it all for you?

    That'll be a strong belt AND a pair of braces for Callumity's trousers please!! :)
