Sawbill Trail Handlebar Bag

(16 reviews) Write a Review

This handcrafted product is available in field tan and hunter orange.

Designed to strap to the bars of a bicycle, the Sawbill Trail Handlebar Bag can carry whatever small stuff you want to keep handy on a cruise. Waxed canvas construction with leather straps to secure to the bars—it's just big enough for the essentials without overburdening your handlebars. Built with a cylindrical shape, the Sawbill features canvas, double-layer ends for stiffness and durability, as well as a stiff bridle leather panel to protect the bag from rub against a fender. On each end is a riveted brass ring to use to help stabilize the Sawbill on a bumpy ride, or to use the bag a small shoulder satchel. Ships with short bike leather straps, built from the good stuff: leather from Red Wing, MN, and solid brass hardware like roller buckles and rivets. To help this candy bar bag keep the weather out, this one's built from waxed canvas, with an integrated rain flap to cover the heavy-duty coil zipper. Made by hand in Duluth, and built for bikes, but useful for all kinds of other places, too. Lash the Sawbill to the bottom of an Isle Royale Bushcraft Pack for a small zippered compartment. Toss the Sawbill inside, or on the side of a pack to have a versatile accessory bag for your small water bottle or pack of pencils. Simplicity equals versatility.

    Awesome Bag!

    Great addition to my FR gear. This lashes on to my Isle Royale bag perfectly and it can go mobile with you on a hike. I got this in Orange waxed canvas and combined with the Windigo Signal bag - I can stay visible and safe during hunting season, and even add a little more capacity to my kit. Great quality, very happy with the purchase.

    Just ordered and received this bag and to be honest I did not think it would be as well made as it was. Very roomy for a pump 2 box's with inner tubes and a few wrenches. Fit perfectly and will and looks great. Will definitely be looking into other products.

    Good value for the quality

    Nice quality bag, strapped easily onto my bicycle. While it may be more expensive than some imported nylon bags, it costs less than comparable quality bags and looks great.

    Sawbill Handlebar Bag

    I bought a Sawbill handlebar bag to use as a seat bag. The space between the straps is wider than the saddle loops on a bike saddle, bit it works really well. It slumps a bit, but that is characteristic of a canvas bag. I've got several old Raleigh 3 speeds and there is a cult following for Carradice British bags for which I have purchased a few. This is actually a nicer bag, and made in my home state. I've posted it to the Raleigh Facebook group and have gotten nice comments from people from the UK.

    I got a handlebar bag in hunter orange and I use it to store first aid supplies. I've fallen off my bike a few times and could have used a bandage and disinfectant. The orange is also, of course, great for visibility. Anything to make you more visible on the road is great. The leather is great and everything is firmly sewn in place. One minor annoyance is the zipper handles clanking together. Easy enough to solve with two rubber bands, but I thought I should mention it anyway. Maybe future products could come with rubber covers for them, but it's not a significant problem anyway. I've bought several cheap imported bicycle bags. None of them hold a candle to this one and all of them broke within a year from . Learn from my mistake: don't even bother with the cheap crap when it comes to something you'll actually use. Spend a little more on quality items, such as the ones available here. You'll save money in the long run. I'll be getting a pair of pannier bags some time soon, maybe a backpack, and a few other items have caught my eye.
