    Carradice Carradura rack bag

    I'm looking for a bag to carry the essentials for randonneuring/light credit card touring. I'm considering this here bag, but I wanted some advice before I pulled the trigger and bought it site unseen. Has anyone used it? The Amazon reviews look good, but again, I'll be buying it site unseen and don't relish the thought of shipping it back to the UK if it doesn't work out.

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    CarraDura is Carradice's line of Nylon fabric bags Carradice + Cordura nylon ,
    likely you got the contraction for the name?


    CarraDry is their welded seam line.


    lots of racktop bags already in US shops. like Jannd ..

    why do you want/prefer those from there , rather than their canvas stuff?

    I've seen the CarraDura stuff and it is well made. But I've never liked rack top bags so my preference would be a
    Barley or Pendle saddlebag

    once the topic was drug away from a rack top bag , to a saddle bag, then the vote for a Super C
    with its easily operated side release Buckles Vs, the leather-strap and buckle of the traditional bags ..
    can be taken ..

    though following the prior link though it lacks side pockets, there is a CarraDry Saddle Bag as well

    One wonder if there are UK resellers discounting SRP, As typically when you buy direct from a Producer
    who also sells thru dealers , they support their dealers businesses by selling at SRP,
    and wholesaling to shops for less ,
    and they can choose what margin, over cost they are willing to take.
