The handlebar bag may be the most complicated bag, but one that is pretty important if you enjoy comfort while out in the backcountry. Each persons cockpit (bars, stem, shifters and brakes) are different, which makes designing a universal handlebar bag difficult. Just like bikepacking itself, it will take some trial and error before figuring out which straps go in front or behind your brake and cable housing. Another part of the puzzle is making sure your bag does not hit your tire when you compress your suspension fork. There are two main types of handlebar bags, the one piece system and the two piece harness system. Both of them have their strengths and weaknesses, it will most likely come down to personal preference.
