The Brooks Isle of Wight saddle bag is waterproof, spacious, and looks vintage-classy.
We were able to get a multi-tool, tube, tire levers, CO2 cartridge, and a rain jacket stuffed into a medium!
The Isle of Wight is made from Bluesign material, an eco-friendly textile, as well as traditional Brooks leather straps. We liked the way the bag held its shape, due to a “u-stiffener.”

Isle of Wight Saddle Bag is “Practical and Functional”
The Brooks Isle of Wight saddle bag is very well made, rugged, looks good and is capacious enough to store all the bits and bobs you need for even the longest rides.
The medium provides enough room to carry most of what you need. Plus it’s stylish and won’t swing around.
When riding, there was no interaction between legs and saddle bag, nor were there any annoying rattles or signs of its presence whatsoever. It looks pretty great too, not clashing with more modern bike designs too glaringly and also sitting comfortably within the retro-hipster bracket, for vintage lovers.
