Neat, but I'm not entirely clear what the advantage is over just strapping something directly to your bars?

 

 

 

Used with and without similar setup. I'd go with, spacing the load away from the handlebars makes them more usable for mounting lights, head units, phones etc. Bit easier to load/unload depending on system. Can help reduce compression and eliminated tight bends on the cables and keep gear shifting working nicely.

 

Okay, those all make sense to me.
