  No Discontinued Brand V Seat Bag - Tan - 20196


Made in: USA

product code: BAVSSS

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.

Flip It August 19, 2014
Reviewer: Matt from Phoenixville, PA United States  
I like it better as a handlebar bag, but I flip it over so it's on the rider side of the bars.  Works great on my bullmoose bars and my stumpy's flat bars.  Perfect bag if you want to carry just enough to not get stuck somewhere and a little bit more.  Mini pump, tube, patches, tire levers, multi tool, keys, wallet, phone with room leftover.  Exactly what I needed.

A superb small/mid-size saddlebag... March 8, 2013
Reviewer: Angus from Seattle, WA United States  
Any bike currently without a bag would benefit greatly from this as an addition. I currently keep in mine: a mini-pump, a tube, saddle cover, two wrenches, a multi-tool, tire levers, a cufflink, a pair of gloves, extra-batteries, a small flashlight, a swiss army knife, and I have room for a PB&J without squishing it too much. The bag is waterproof enough for the 150 days of rain in Seattle and as great style.

Great Small(ish) Saddle Bag October 5, 2011
Reviewer: G.E. from Colorado  
This is a great saddle bag for those trips when you don't need to carry the kitchen sink with you (which is probably most local rides). It's larger than the typical saddle bag found in bike shops, which means you can fit more in it, but not so large that you find yourself overloading and carrying things that you *might* need. I currently carry in mine: headlight and taillight, keys, cell phone, cable bike lock, and a small wallet - and there's still room to spare. In fact, we dropped off a Redbox movie the other day and I stuffed it in the bag as well. I haven't had any issues with the velcro at all - it's remained snug as a bug (in a rug). I also love that I can slide my taillight onto the back of the bag (there's a small slit in the reflective piece). I don't have a rear rack on the bike I use this on, so there's nowhere else to put a light. The material is also sturdy and is holding up well. Very happy with the purchase (and actually pondering buying another).
