The Barley Saddlebag is our best selling saddlebag. It is ideal for day rides and the commute to work with enough room to hold essentials and a bit more. This saddlebag design has stood the test of time and with a durable construction and clever detailing it won’t let you down. The saddlebag comes with 3 leather straps for attaching to the bike. Traditional style and unsurpassed quality.

Made from 100% waterproof 18 ounce cotton duck – the original performance fabric with self-sealing seams.  It is easily re-proofed and repaired. Quality leather straps  keep their strength and looks no matter what weather and conditions they face. Buckles and fastenings are all metal – we know they can take decades of regular use. All of our saddlebags can be made without leather content - we substitute recycled firehose material instead.

Disclaimer - Colour shade may vary due to materials supply.  Colour/design of lining and reflector may vary.

Originals Barley Saddlebag

Great

Very Nice, appreciat the extra loops to transport and fix.
Very stabil in the quickrelease, doesn't wobble. Leather needs time to flex, sturdy. Plenty of room. Have had Rainpants and jacket and lock chain in it and bouket of flowers on the outside on top thanks to the multitude of fix possiblitys. Mud stains a little on the texture , but all stays dry inside. Nice color.
Very happy. Comes with clear mounting instructions if needed.

Review

It's beautiful in burgundy. Carradice never cease to blow me away with their hand made works of art. My first barley was give in 1982. I bought my second in 1998. I still have that and still use it. This is my third Barley for a new bike. Comparing the craftmanship and quality throughout the decades of ownership I can tell you Carradice never waver. This hand made work of art is as immortal as the others I own. It's the best of the best. Someone will find this in the things I leave after I'm dead. It's also really good looking so I'd better always take it off my bike.
