Yes there are several, you have to be careful how much stuff you put back there depending on the height of your seat post.
They tend to be pricey. some of the bags mount directly to the cage mounts.

Go low with the water bottles and mount them to the seat post. And then.

and is whats on my bike


Or go way out back and mount the seat bag underneath

They at least used to make one that I had no problems with. It attached to the saddle rails and allowed you to mount 2 standard bottle cages. I know it is somewhere in my stuff.

I use an inexpensive handlebar bag from Benny's. It not only hold everything, they make you more aerodynamic.

If you can still find one. the older Minoura 300U holds two cages up above the saddle. Makes it hard to mount with your leg over the saddle. Won't mount to a Brooks.
