Fine tuning an old classic. Saddlebags have been around forever. We've mostly stuck with tradition, but added a few refinements: a stiffener to keep the bottom of the bag from sagging, no-fuss pocket turn buttons and a full width leather strip on the back.
You have the option of purchasing our Leather Stand-Off. It's specifically designed to work with our stiffener to pull the bag away from the seatpost, minimizing "thigh-rub"—brushing your legs against the bag. It also keeps the bag from chafing on the brake cable and seat post clamp.
As with all larger saddlebags, a bag support is recommended, such as the Carradice Bagman. Our internal stiffener works well with the Bagman, preventing the unsupported ends of the bag from drooping downward.
Mounting straps are designed for Brooks saddles with bag loops. The vertical distance from the bag loops to the bottom of the bag is approx. 8 inches.
Please note: In the process of improving our products, we occasionally make running changes. Actual item may slightly vary from what is shown in the photos.
