Saddle and tool bags are trending lately and they really help the travelling biker to have a safe place to store their belongings. Personally, I'm a huge fan of these saddle bags, and I feel that these saddle bags aren't just portable but incredibly practical, as well as stylish. Here at Cycle Heart, we have created a comprehensive guide on the greatest saddle and tool bags on offer on our online shop.
Each saddle bag offers something a little different for its owner. Some saddle bags have roomier storage, while others are embossed with metal studs. At the end of this guide, we've provided you with a quick summary of all the bags described here today.
If you're looking for storage, this is the ultimate bar bag to own. It contains two roomy compartments, allowing you to keep items separated, if you so wish.
What I love most about these saddle bags are the easy-to-use leather buckles which buckle in and out of their straps quickly and easily. This means you'll be able to pull out items from the top and bottom compartments in no time at all.
This bar bag also has a beautiful, ornate line of studs along its top. This adds a stylish design to the bag, providing it with an eclectic, quirky feel.
It's made with PVC, which gives it a durable, extra-strong hold and that means it's a tad lighter than leather, too.
For those that want a smaller saddle bag, this provides a perfect size to those that are seeking portability. Its smaller size allows for easier transport, so you can easily clip it onto your motorcycle or keep it slung around your shoulder when you're travelling from place to place.
Of course, its coolest feature is the easy zip-off feature which makes accessing the contents of your bag quick and easy. If that wasn’t enough, it also has two easy-clip buckles which you can buckle in and out quickly.
It is made of PVC which makes it durable and a lot lighter than leather.
What I like most about this bag is its lightness. I feel like I can easily bring it with me whenever I so wish, which makes it travel-friendly and incredibly easy to bring along. It holds a wide variety of items (you could even use it as a tool bag) and that's what makes it such a wonderful bag, because I love its durability.
Just guessing from the title, you'd probably guess that this bag is perfect for storing tools. If you thought that, you are definitely correct.
However, the practicality and portability of this well-designed tool bag impressed me incredibly. The leather this bag is made from is water-proof and one of the most durable natural materials of all. This pretty much guarantees that your tools and biking necessities will be kept perfectly intact and dry in this bag, so you're sure to be safe should your motorbike break down!
The ornate metal piece embedded onto the leather makes for a beautiful decoration, while the two buckles make it easy to open and close this tool bag. Their tight fit also ensures that the buckles will never open during a storm or wet weather or if you're riding down a busy road.
Contrary to the regular bags we might see here, this bag actually contains a nifty feature. It has padlocks on its buckles, which not only makes for an interesting, unique sight, they can also ward off any potential robbers or stealers! They definitely won't be approaching your tool bag.
Keep in mind, however, that these padlocks don't actually form part of the closure. The tool bag is actually opened with Velcro lining. You open the straps with the Velcro underneath them, and this is the same for closing.
They also form an interesting, intriguing appeal to the fashionista or trend-setter. Locks may be the next trending fashion statement in the months and years to come, but we can't predict for sure. All we know is that these lock-themed motorcycling accessories are on the rise.
This padlocked tool bag is popular here at Cycle Heart and you should definitely grab one while you can.
If you're looking for a tool bag that's a tad more retro in style, you should check out this tool bag. Its brown colour and brown leather style makes this tool bag look instantly traditional and retro.
However, if you're into these retro tool bags, this is definitely our best tool bag on offer. It is made with leather, so that makes it waterproof and incredibly durable (plus it doesn't just look like it's made of leather, it is made of leather!). This will make it weather-proof for all your trips in the rain.
This also has a portable size and shape, so it's not too difficult to carry around with you. It'll fit on any motorcycle ride and it doesn't have a huge size to make carrying it around difficult and wearisome.
For me, personally, I adore this tool bag for its sheer authenticity and traditional style. It always reminds me of those golden days in the past of riding into the sunset . . .
However, those memories are certainly different for everyone, as well as opinions. But what I know for sure is that I absolutely adore its leather buckles, they are slightly shared at the end to create that jagged, vintage feel, as if it just came from the leather shop.
