    Carradice's Nelson Longflap works ... if it is a bit too big for you, have a look at some of Carradice's other products. They are built to go with the Brooks.

    And then I have the obligatory plastic grocery bag tucked under there too.

    You could try Nashbar or Canadian Tire.

    Don't forget to proofhide the underside of the saddle. It's just good protection

    IF you don't like the price of the carridice bags, you should check the berthoud...

    Otherwise, check a Harley dealer for tool bags, etc. I haven't, but have heard they have something useful.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    This has worked very well for me on a Brooks Pro:
