Brand V (vegan) Seat Bag
We've been out for a while, and now it's back, and is being made by Waterbury out of Scottish cloth. Tan, all cotton, same shape & all as the last one and the SaddleSack XS, but with a zipper closure.
Either way, it's small without being super dinky, Velcro-mounts easily to any saddle with loops, and it's just ready and rarin' to go. Holds tools, tube, cell phone, wallet, keys, and a spare light shirt. Food? OK.
The velcro holds well, but you have to overlap it a lot and press it together well. Velcro is strong in shear, which is most of the force acting on it, but you can't just touch the hook and loop together and head off down the toad...or the road.
If the bag is pretty much a permanent mount, consider backing up the velcro with a zip tie or spring clip. We've not found this to be necessary (I/Grant use this bag on my everyday bike and with a good load in it, no problem), but it will certainly reinforce the connection. (If you'd rather not deal with this, or if you scare easily (no shame in that, no harshness intended), then cast your veganism to the wind and get the Sackville Non-Vegan version.)
Light strip works on many lights, but not wide-clipped ones. With a 3M Scotchlite strip in back in any case.
