Leather bags have a different feel and look compared to bags of other make. A canvass bag has its own appeal, yet it can never match the regal and royal connotation leather depicts. Leather Saddle Bags make your bike look nice.
Genuine leather has a weird smell and texture that makes each piece unique, for the leather forms to the user. Aging leather according to its “wanted” form takes time and effort. So once the leather becomes true to its form, it is considered priceless to the owner.
Aside from having a leather saddle, the next nice thing to have as leather is the saddle bag. I got mine from Bzkleta x Handpicked Vintage Collection. I visited the secret spot of the place somewhere in Amerikina and saw lots of treasures there. The owner specializes in vintage bicycle cruisers and the like. If you are into vintage treasures, bicycles, boots, bags, jackets, etc, you’ll go crazy when you step into this realm of handpicked collectibles.
I visited their shop during the holidays and brought home the black leather saddle bag, leather strap for my Seiko, and a steam punk round sun glasses. These small items spark joy and they gave premium to my otherwise boring possessions. My white 700c commuter bike instantly looked cool thanks to the black leather bag. The construction and quality is nice, plus the real leather smell is as authentic as it can get. I cleaned it with a little oil and the gleam and new leather smell were enhanced after cleaning.
The black saddle bag gives my white commuter bike a serious “I-am-not-a-cheap-bike-look” yet in reality, it still is a cheap bike. It just adds premium to the ride and the bag makes me feel good riding my bike.
When I remove the bag from the saddle, I can rock it by attaching it to a strap (photographed here, i strapped it on my bike chain) and tie it around my waist.
