Please recommend inexpensive cylinder style saddle bags.

Thanks for any tips. Like this, but need something much less expensive:

I dunno, but if it's made like my Glennbrook, it's got to be one of the most expensive pieces of consumer plastic out there. Sorry, not plastic; leatherette!

Plastic is good on this, don't get me wrong. More weather resistant than real leather, lighter, and it doesn't need leather's ability to conform to the rider. I'm just thinking that it is priced like premium leather.

Do a google search for motorcycle tool bags or pouches. A lot of them look very similar to brooks, but much cheaper.

Origin-8 has a leather one on Amazon. It's that's still too steep, check out the Electra 'leatherette' versions, also on Amazon.http://www.amazon.com/Origin8-Classi.../dp/B0044Q3UB2

Ebay is your friend for this item.

Avenir makes one that can be had for $8. I think it is called the Avenir Metro. I will scour the LBII tomorrow to see if anyone has one.

Why not just use a roll top dry bag like kayakers use?

What size of bag are you looking for? I don't know if you realize that the Brooks Challenge bag you linked to is very small. When I checked it out at the store, it didn't even fit an inner tube and tire levers.

lay the tools on a shop towel *, fold over the sides and roll it up
and use a toe strap to hold it under the seat ,
or 2 straps if you got bag loops ..

* or any square of cloth, maybe big enough to sit on, while you patch your tube?

You can always use a tool roll up and straps to tie it to your seat. The tool roll up keeps the tools from clinking against themselves while the one compartment bag will be noisier.
