Carradice History

Carradice Barley Saddle Bag
Carradice Saddle Bags are synonymous with the British approach to cycling. This excellent article details some of the company's history. Their waxed Canvas Duck bags are well thought-out and hella sturdy. Loading the bike at the saddle make it handle better than most of the other choices (unless the bike is designed to carry weight on one end or the other).
