This is our first piece of VO brand bike luggage. The Velo Orange saddle bag is made of thick canvas that matches the color of the classic old TA bag. It has a stiffener in back so it maintains it's shape and a separate pocket for your wallet. there are inner flaps that can be secured to keep the contents restrained on rough roads. The buckles are solid brass, not plated.
It's about the perfect size for a long day's ride with room for a tool kit and spare tube, a rain jacket, a wool cap, knee warmers, a small camera, a cell phone, and plenty of snacks. If your rain jacket gets wet you can secure it under the extra long top strap. The price is $68 in the Velo Orange store.
In the future we hope to make a smaller version, a matching handlebar bag, panniers, and a large seat bag.
