Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Sleek Saddlebag that Fits the iPhone 6?

Currently I have the medium sized topeak bag as the small can't fit my phone.

Not a big fan of putting my phone in my jersey pocket so I was wondering, what is the most sleek saddle bag a person can buy that fits an iphone 6?

If theres only space for the phone and no tubes/tools, thats fine. I just need it to be able to zip up with the phone inside.

Preferably not. I usually like to keep my jersey pockets light. More importantly, on my short rides, I wear athletic tees and not jerseys.

Being willing to fix your own flat tires is for chumps who can't afford an iPhone 6? Why not mount it on the handlebars where you can use it while riding, and others can admire it?

Blackburn Local Medium Seat Bag > Accessories > Bags > Saddle Bags | Jenson USA - Mobile

This is what I use, my iPhone 6 plus barely fits in there without a case and won't go in with the case on, which leads me to believe this bag is sleek for being medium.

I also carry tire levers and a patch kit in there, but no tube and I don't even think it'd fit in there anyways.

This is what I use:

Topeak® Cycling Accessories ? Products - Wedge DryBag, black, medium (Strap Mount)

I'll save you the keystrokes and just admit that it is totally fugly.
However, I'm in Tampa with the rainy season beginning, so I'm not worried AT ALL about anything getting wet inside.
I have a tube, Pedro's tire levers, slim wallet, iphone 6, and my keys in there.
I, also, put my keys and phone in zip lock bags for total, over-the-top, OCD, Mr. Meticulous safeguard.
Glad to help!

Shifter Saddle Bag ? Green Guru Gear

I would 100% recommend this instead of something that is that cordura material. You want something storm proof to keep your phone dry in case you get caught in a rainstorm or get splashed. This is an upcycled item made from inner tubes, so brownie points for going greener too
