Yeah, but those Carradice bags are big. I mean really big. Honest, I tried to find something in nylon that would mount on the slots in the Brooks. No go. And other designs didn't work at all, or just worked poorly. With an unsprung mode, about any old bag would have worked as well. So, I was looking for something with at least a minimum cargo space, and to heck with tradition.

As to Leatherette (plastic), it probably won't wear as well as leather, and nylon cordura would probably out last them all. Really, leather is a good saddle top, but is heavy and less weather resistant than other choices in a bag.
Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
