Bicycle Barrel Bag for Handlebars

Color: Black
Dark Brown

Inspired by St. Bernard brandy barrels, our Barrel Bag is totally handcrafted from the highest quality materials. A celebrated and classic design, our customers tell us that this bag is a head-turner and a conversation-starter.

Keeping a bag on your handlebars allows you to carry your most vital pocket items within reach as you roll through town, like a cell phone, wallet, and keys. The wood ends are lightweight and sturdy, and our waterproof finish keeps your Barrel Bag safe in inclement weather.


  • Crafted from high-quality American vegetable-tanned leather
  • Hand-stitched with waxed sailmaker's thread
  • Finished with aromatic and lightweight Pacific Northwest cedar sides for strength and character
  • Stays shut with a "common sense" hardware closure
  • The same bag can be used for both the handlebars and saddle: simply switch out the belts. 


Yes! This item can be monogrammed with up to 7 characters using our 1/2" font set. Monogramming can add 2-3 days to the turnaround time. Monogram placement is as shown in the last photo. Learn more about monograms.

I love the look of this bag — a little retro and stands out from the millions of lookalike under-saddle bags. The color matches my Brooks honey saddle and Walnut Studiolo honey laced bar wrap. Also, people recognize my bike (and me) because of it. Does a great job of holding my repair kit, tube(s) and CO2 cartridge(s). Over time with use, weight of my repair supplies, and weather abuse (rain),however, it began to sag and lose its round shape. I have had to put a stick of wood across the top on the inside with the strap wrapped around it to provide needed support. Also, the strap broke and had to be replaced. I now have it reinforced with zip ties around the seat rails.

Sweet little bag

I love the look of this bag. My bike is still a work in progress, and this bag gave my bike an instant aesthetic upgrade. My only issue is the way it attaches. There are a total of 4 large holes at the top of the bag for the strap to weave through. I like the moderate security this system offers (it’s not the easiest thing to remove), but it’s not the greatest in adverse weather. I got caught in a downpour on my way home from work a few days ago and got home with the bag holding some water at the bottom. Just something to be aware of when purchasing. Overall, I love this bag and still gave a well deserved 5 stars.

It is a great product. I like the locking system.
