Bicycle Barrel Bag for Saddles

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.

A small saddle bag allows you to carry your most vital pocket items in a convenient location, 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.

FEATURES: Crafted from high-quality American vegetable-tanned leather, hand-stitched with waxed sailmaker's thread, and 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. 

INSTALLATION: Attaches with a long belt that threads through your seat rail or saddle eyelets. Comes with a second attachment point with a leather cord to help secure the bag to the stem, which is optional (the belt-and-suspenders technique). We have tied the optional cord around the seat post or through the springs of a sprung saddle, but it can be used in any way that makes the most sense on your bike. For extra security, you can thread a zip tie through the second string holes as a theft deterrent.

Beautiful, well-crafted, and incredibly functional!

I discovered this on Etsy and was hesitant to order as the price seemed a bit high, and you cannot tell the quality from the online photos. There were other cheaper options, but reviews were mixed and the access did not appear as well conceived. I decided to take a chance and ordered this one. WOW! It is fantastic! The leather is supreme quality, and the craftsmanship superb. The bag looks fantastic on the bike, access to the inside is super quick and easy with no buckles to open/close, and the design unique. The price is NOT too high...this bag is a bargain.

I loved it so much I ordered a second one. :-)

Great experience overall

Everything about this purchase was perfect. I absolutely love my saddle bag, it's beautiful. It arrived very quickly, packaged so thoughtfully and nicely, even the receipt for my purchase was unique, wonderful, thoughtful and spot on. I recommend this seller 110! If I could give them 100 stars I would. Thank you very much!
