Show us your Acorn bags!

The recent Acorn bag restocking thread started to turn into a show your acorn thread. I did a search and we don't have a dedicated thread for it and I think these bags deserve one. I've got the smallest and largest saddlebags, they are both wonderful. Today I ordered an x-pac compact rando bag for a bike that's on it's way to me. I'll post when both of those arrive.

Not the best angle to show off the bag, per se, but it does show how well it fits the bike:

Thanks! Yup, that's the brown. The honey was too light for my battered Brooks.

A variant of this pic may have been posted somewhere on the forums, can't remember. But it's the best shot of one of mine with both a rear roll and the front rando. I also have a handlebar bag I use frequently. Unfortunately for me Acorn no longer produces the 'Ranger Tan' bags, which was the version I found most aesthetically pleasing. Oh well. And yes, I stuff too much @#$ into the roll.

I like how the flap provides an additional layer of saddle padding.

That's known as the Dennis the Menace feature.

I'm a big fan of Acorn bags and rarely can resist the opportunity to pick up another. Other than the two I showed in the earlier thread, the ones I use most are a medium saddle bag and a older handlebar bag that I don't believe they make any longer.

I also picked up the newer version of the small/medium saddlebag and have it on my Milwaukee single-speed:

I have the Boxy Rando Bag in Ranger Tan. This was a Christmas present from my wife- In all that "what do you want for Christmas" stuff that goes on- I gave her a link to the Acorn site- Realistically, I understood the chances of her getting the Acorn bag were next to nothing. This bag is perfect for everything and it's one of my favorite cycling things.

A couple of years ago I had one of my Army nametags sewn on the front pocket under the flap- you can see it just peeking out- it normally doesn't show. I still have a dozen or so nametags left over, and I got out 25 years ago.
