The Nelson Saddlebag is one of our medium sized bags in the Originals Range. It is handmade using the best materials around.  It is also durable and waterproof which makes it the ideal saddlebag to use in all weathers. It is similar to the Nelson Longflap but without the extendable lid option. 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.

I've had mine 10 years and it's covered thousands of miles of commutes, trips to the shops and touring.

My green Nelson was made by Tammy, who signed it. This bag is a thing of beauty that will last the rest of my life. Tammy made this by hand and it's so much better that a factory made item. It has soul. I also know that whatever weather nature throws at this bag not a single drop of water will enter it. It's the best of the best. Thank Tammy from me if you can for this beautiful bag.

I use this for my everyday commute, fits everything I need for the day, light jacket, bike tools, extra tube, shoes and pack lunch. Still has more room for more. :) I love the classic green color, knowing that it's handmade, enjoying it with the QR bagman expedition for an easy install.
