Topeak All Weather Tri-Bag
Eating on the go.....
Long ride ahead? Get one of these, put your gels energy bars or just jelly babies in this and you are sure to find them without popping a shoulder trying to reach into your jersey pocket for some grub. Comes with a rain cover which is essential unless you want to catch rain as you ride.
Will also take a smart phone and supplies so plenty of room without being too bulky.

Use bike for commuting to work and occasional fitness runs. The bag is perfect size for carrying essential commuting kit ie spare inner tubes, tyre levers and multi-tool, and then for fitness jaunts can also fit in energy shots.

Perfect for jelly babies...
I bought this on recommendation from a friend, and used recently on a 50m ride. It has ample capacity for en-route snacks meaning I didn't have to stop or slow down to refuel. Also space for a folded route card and mobile. As others have commented you can knock against it when out of the saddle, but this is a small price to pay in return for the availability of instant sugar gratification.

Well made useful bag, versatile and very easy to fit and use.

OK but it is small
Not a bad bag for, say, a mobile phone. It is, however, quite small - it doesn't fit a medium set of keys, for example, and the velcro fastening of the outer rain cover piece is not particularly brilliant.

Good Value Tri Bag
Good value bag. Can store mobile, keys, tyre levers, spare tube and gas canisters for the commute to work or swap out the mobile and keys for energy gels and bars for races. The compartments are good to keep things separate and the rain cover works well.
The only slight niggle is the front strap is too long. Other than that it is a quality bag at a good price.

Useful for jelly babies on the move
I bought this to do the 50 mile King of the Pennines ride in September 2011. It does the job; an entire bag of jelly babies fits in nicely. Perfect to eat stuff on the move without having to put anything in your back or saddlebag (harder to reach, IMHO).
Only quibble is that unless you shut the velcro properly, it can rub on your left knee when you're out of the saddle, ruining your 3/4 lengths or whatever you're wearing, the velcro ruins the lycra.

Cheap but worth it
Bought this product because I don't ride large distances (10-20 miles once a week) and wanted somewhere to keep my wallet & phone.
The Tri-Bag is big enough for a medium sized wallet, a smartphone and a set of key. Not much more.
Good waterproof cover in case of rain, however I've not had to use it yet so cannot review it's efficiency.
Overall a handy, low cost bag for easy access to kit on the move.
