The Brooks Isle of Wight saddle bag large is a very practical, light and elegant bag to accompany the cyclist on every trip. Made with Bluesign®, a water resistant material, and genuine Brooks leather. This saddlebag has a double zip closure for easy access to your belongings.
In addition it has enough space for a multi-tool, inner tubes, and with the large version, you can even fit a small bicycle pump. It is available in three sizes and three colours. A simple yet elegant bag, like the unique features of the British island that gives it its name.
The Brooks bike saddle story started way back in 1865, a young man of just 19 years of age was said to have bought 'one of those new-fangled velocipedes' which was fitted with a wooden saddle, this proved excruciating. As luck would have it his father made leather saddles for horses, so the young man known as John Boultbee Brooks set to work in his fathers workshop designing and developing a comfortable saddle from leather. The rest they say is history....
Brooks experience in saddle making goes right back to the beginning - back to the period of solid tyres - and is unequalled by any other house in the world.
That said, they recognise the fact that they cannot rely on their past history alone, so they still build saddles with the same attitude as when they started, 'quality first', both in materials and manufacture. The testament to this is that there are still saddles in active use today, made many many years ago.
