I just received my new Carradice Barley bag this morning. Looks great on my Long Haul Trucker. The bag has plenty of room inside and the two exterior pockets are great for camera, tools, goodies, etc. Price was around $75 from harris cyclery.

Mine doesn't have that snazzy metal tag, and the reflective diamond doesn't have anything written on it. It also has a nylon blinky loop instead of the leather one on yours.

I suppose yours is a newer model than mine.

Very nice.... I've got one too. One thing I don't understand is why they have not re-designed their bags to fit modern saddle/seatpost positions without the use of optional supports. I use mine with a Bagman support.

Then mine is different as well, the blinky loop is leather, but much thinner that either of those pictured and pretty much useless because most blinkies will droop downwards when clipped to it. I went to the SQR mounts, which puts the bag at a little better angle and also makes it easy to swap from bike to bike.
