Large Saddlebag

 



Fine tuning an old classic. Saddlebags have been around forever. I'm not one to break with tradition, but I felt there were a few issues that needed improvement. Our Large Bag comes with a leather "stand-off" that angles the bag to a more upright position, which addresses 3 problems:

  1. Minimizes "thigh rub"--brushing your legs against the bag.
  2. Helps prevent valuables from falling out of the pockets.
  3. Keeps the bag off the brake cable and seat post clamp.

An internal stiffener works in conjunction with the stand-off to stop the bag from collapsing around the seatpost area. The stiffener also prevents the bag from sagging and rubbing the tire.

At 6 liters, this bag is compact sized and I would consider it a "smallish" large. Mounting straps are designed for Brooks saddles with bag loops.
