Bates Saddle Bag is rated
Rated 3 out of
Very well made but doesn't fit an 18" Bates Isabel
I am so sad that it doesn't fit my saddle. I really wanted to love this saddle bag, and thought for sure that ordering one branded by the saddle maker would ensure a fit. I have a really hard time zipping over the second knee roll.
The girth holder and under side pockets are great features. The fabric is extremely durable. I'm worried with the tight fit over the knee rolls that the zipper won't hold for a full season of forcing the bag to close. The carrying strap is annoyingly short and basically useless because of that.
For the price, it's definitely a disappointment.
