I designed it and my wife sewed it. Brooks saddles paired with canvas saddlebags are a fetish of mine.

For day tours, I wanted something bigger than a modern wedgie bag but smaller than a full-size Carradice saddlebag...something along the lines of a Baggins Banana/Orange-Velo/Berthoud underseat saddlebag.

I thought there was room for improvement, so I added lots of zippered security pockets, a spindrift expandable collar and some D-rings on top to lash extra gear.
