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.
