X-Pac Compact Saddlebag
A saddlebag that won’t rub you the wrong way. Our X-Pac Compact Saddlebag helps resolve 2 common “transverse” style bag problems:
- Saddlebag scrapes against the rear tire. We created a narrow profile bag that pulls tightly to the saddle, giving maximum tire clearance for smaller frame sizes.
- Thighs chafe against bag. Instead of the traditional method of strapping the bag to the seatpost, paracord is looped through the saddle rails. It provides enough stability while distancing the bag away from your legs.
As with all our X-Pac bags, we kept a minimalist design, while incorporating time-saving features so you can concentrate on your ride. Our Fastex buckle is positioned higher on the flap, so it’s easier to reach. A wide opening and light-colored interior makes it faster to locate your stuff. An expandable collar lets you sneak in one more snack.
Why we broke with tradition and used X-Pac™ fabric:
I wanted to keep a classic look, but I didn't want to restrict myself by only using heritage materials. X-Pac X10™ fabric strikes a nice balance by combining natural cotton duck with the modern performance of Dimension-Polyant's sailcloth technology.
We also used ITW® Nexus/Fastex Mil-Spec hardware for its ease of use and light weight.
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. 5 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.
