Do you ever actually carry while riding?

I really wish I could throw one of my handguns in my camelbak while MTBing in some remote locations, but Canada has silly rules.

the problem i've had with similar products like the Loksak is that the sealed corners are too sharp. ends up ruining a few jerseys. the plastic isn't soft enough...and i've also carefully rounded the sharp corners and that has helped. i ended up going back to the Ziplock freezer bags. i have an implies sealer...so i can modify the size of the freezer zip to fit around my needs (i.e., phone size, cash, etc.). because the relative cost and use of the freezer bags are inexpensive, i can toss it when it gets grimy or overused.

Hmm. You make a fine point about the sharp edges. I'll be sure to pay special attention to that before putting it to use.

I remember there being an electronics bag similar to the jersey bin, but there was an adhesive slit that allowed the headphone cable to exit while maintaining the waterproof capabilities......my google-fu has failed me on this. Anyone know what I am talking about??

Not on my road bike. However, since I have a license, I am supposed to carry it and present it if asked for my license, so I carry copies of both. Responsible gun ownership is important, and this is part of being responsible.

Which political jurisdiction requires you to carry your concealed carry license when you are not carrying a (concealed) gun?

does it matter? As a European i'm reading these things in awe, haven't the times of "the wild west" past? carrying a gun has more to do with an arms race then self protection. Please pinch my arm and remember what century we live in ;)

No it would totally be about self protection, I have encountered bears, cougars etc while riding here in Canada. I consider myself fortunate the encounters haven't gone poorly. Many people that work around here can actually get a hand gun carry permit because of the potentially dangerous animals.

Seeing grizzly bears from a distance can be really cool, but change that to within 10 ft and you might change your mind.

O.k., I am guessing that FIJIGabe does not live in the Netherlands.

Been using the Rapha Essentials Case http://www.rapha.cc/ca/en/shop/essentia ... duct/ECS01

Yes, steep price, but I'll have it forever, and it works perfectly. When I need to carry my phone in a waterproof, I have a freebie thick ziplock type bag from Cycling Plus.

I have one of these e-Cases. Like it a lot so far. Keep my phone, id, CC, some cash and a key in it.
I work for myself and often go riding during business hours, so needed something that I can able to answer the phone or texts and give the appearance that I am actually "working" :P
I tried plastic bags but they would become trashed within a ride or two and I couldn't see the screen without taking the phone out of the bag. I like that I can plug the ear piece into it as well.

Prior to this I tried the Lezyne Phone Wallet, it worked well and offered some "padding" for the phone in a crash but it was a bit bulky and I had to open it up in order to see the screen inside, which made it difficult to quickly scan to see if I want to answer the phone or not while riding. The eCase allows me to do this very easily.
A bit pricey though

I have a Note 2. Got a jersey bin but it was too big to fit in my jersey pocket...I just ended up using a Ziploc bag.
