While I’m usually not the biggest fan of saddle bags, these HMPL No. 15 bags look pretty nice:
“Designed to hang nicely under the saddle of most any bicycle, the No. 15 transports all of your essentials without the burden of a backpack. Save your shirt and your dignity on a hot summer’s day, unless you always ride shirtless. It’s big enough to hold a 15-case of beer, roughly 15x11x7″ when rolled up.
The joy of the No.15 is its versatility. If you want to leave your saddle alone, you can throw it in your basket, strap it to your rack, attach it to your handlebars, sling it over your shoulder, the possibilities are endless.
Where we’re from, rain is an inevitability. Constructed from durable waterproof materials, the No. 15 will keep your things dry in a downpour. This doesn’t mean its 100% waterproof, but it’s pretty damn close.”

Columbus’ Seagull Bags have grown to be one of the most popular bag makers over the years and while I was in Columbus a few weeks back, I randomly hopped in to check out their facilities. Unfortunately, all I had was my Hasselblad with 6 exposures left on the roll so it’s not what I would consider a full Shop Visit gallery, but it does capture some of the space and faces of Seagull Bags.

It’s been about a month since Eric from ILE sent me one of his new Photo Bag Mini models to test out. Usually, when I’m shooting photos on the go while riding, I’ll just throw the camera around my shoulder and pedal around with it fully exposed. There are plenty of occasions where that might not be a great idea, or maybe you want to carry a flash, some CF cards and other small accessories with you. In those cases, the Photo Bag Mini is perfect.
Or, as I’ve found in recent weeks, it’s great for toting my Hasselblad and a few film backs. Check out more of my thoughts on the ILE Photo Bag Mini below. Click on the above photo to launch the gallery, or here to open in a new tab.
Having just picked up a Hasselblad, I’m way stoked on this new video from Mission Workshop:
“For an afternoon, the San Francisco Bay Railroad opened it’s doors to Oakland based photographer Alex Ramos and Mission Workshop to capture the day to day operations of this local industrial railroad on film and video.
The photographs taken will be on exhibit in the San Francisco warehouse of Mission Workshop from August 17th until September 21st, 2012. Go to missionworkshop.com/event for information on the show and opening.

Just about every day now, a saddle bag pops into my inbox. Usually I skip over them, since I’m more of a fan of rolls (you’ve got a jersey pocket for on-the-go-access IMO), and rolls are more of a emergency flat kit but some people like to be light on their pockets, so saddle bags it is. Burro’s new Grenadier Saddle Bags mix that Florida flavor they’re known for with the on-the-go access of a saddle bag. Don’t be mistaken: this is not your dad’s saddle bag.
Pick one up here at Burro.
