Which Fixer for a Brooks B-17?

I have been using a Topeak Aero wedge with Quick Release mount. I really like the quick on and off mounting. I just bought a Brooks B17,OMG! OMG! What a comfortable saddle!
However the fixer for the topeak doesn't fit. Anyone know which fixer might work and are you using it?

I couldn't find a way to mount the Aerowedge QR pack on my B17. I ended up getting the traditional strap/clip attachment version instead.

I use a F22 Fixer for my Topeak Wedge Pack L together with my B-17. The F33 is way too long and the F11 too short. No idea about the new F25.

a section of fabric ,roll your stuff up in it and secure it with a nice Leather toe strap
or 2 since there are bag loops..

Carradice Saddle Bags come in a variety of sizes , they are the purpose the seat loops were made for.

The fixer allows quick release of the saddle pack. So you can grab your tools when you lockup your bike, or move your seat pack to another bike.
