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.
As with all larger saddlebags, it's recommended that a bag support or rack be used...or you can go the minimalist route and purchase our optional 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.
- Bag height and depth made slightly smaller for more tire clearance.
- Stiffener changed to HDPE; covers bottom area only, no longer full wraparound.
- Back leather strip now runs full width of bag.
- Collar changed to 3/4 circumference, no longer 360°.
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.
