The original stylish leather saddle bag design, inspired by the brandy barrels carried by St. Bernard mountain dogs, the Seat 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 Barrel Bag threads through your seat rail or saddle eyelets and carries your most vital items; a cell phone, wallet, and keys, as you roll throughout town.
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, which is optional to use: a set of holes with a leather cord for a belt-and-suspenders technique. We have tied it 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. You can thread a zip tie through the string holes as a theft deterrent and as a second anchor point. Or you don't have to use it at all.
Stays shut with a "common sense" hardware closure.
Sides are made of aromatic Northwest-grown FSC-certified cedar.
