2-Piece Saddle Bag

The tapered shape of the saddle bag is formed by hand stitching together two panels. The opening is an inserted zip and the attached strap slots in between the rails to hold securely in place beneath the saddle. Highlights in gold and Vanilla Workshop's light and dark army match perfectly to this understated horizon bike.
