Bicycle Leather Handlebar Bag - "The Barrel Bag"

  • A stylish leather handlebar bag inspired by the brandy barrels carried by St. Bernard mountain dogs, the Handlebar Barrel Bag is hand-crafted out of high-quality American vegetable-tanned leather, stitched by hand using waxed sailmaker's thread, and finished with aromatic and lightweight Pacific Northwest cedar sides for its strength and character. 

    A celebrated and classic design, the Handlebar Barrel Bag has a long belt that threads around your handlebars. We also have a shorter-belt version that works great as a bicycle saddle bag

    Keeping a bag on your handlebars allows you to carry your most vital items within reach as you roll through town: a cell phone, wallet, and keys.

    The wood ends add a timeless touch, and our waterproof finish keeps your Barrel Bag safe in inclement weather.

  • Comes with a second attachment point to help secure the bag to the stem, which is optional to use: a set of holes with a leather cord for a belt-and-suspenders technique. You can thread a zip tie through the second string holes as a theft deterrent and as a second anchor point, or you can remove the string entirely. 

    Stays shut with a "common sense" hardware closure.

    Sides are made of aromatic Northwest-grown FSC-certified cedar.
