The Nelson Longflap Saddlebag is one of our most popular bags. Its larger size and adjustable capacity make it ideal for longer rides including overnight stays. It is even great for commuting when you need to carry extra gear. 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 fire hose material instead.

Fabulous Product. Great Customer Service

My new Nelson Longflap Saddlebag is so good. Loads of space. Quick release. The customer service was also brilliant - couldn’t be more helpful after I accidentally ordered the wrong colour. Thank you

Quality exceeded expectations!

I looked at a lot of bags from all known manufacturers and Carradice stands out as having significantly more quality (buckles, leather straps, thicker duck) while still maintaining a price that is lower than the competition. I really hope they can maintain this as there is nothing out there that can compare. Thank you Sue for the bag, I love it!!
