Leave it to the Swiss Army to create a beautiful way to haul their ammunition around. Now, you can peacefully use these handmade bags to haul your items on your bicycle's rack. Made from a heavy duty sage green cotton twill and saddle leather, these bags measure 11.5" Wide x 9.25" Tall x 4.12" Deep. Their capacity is approximately 3 liters. The lid is held in place by a leather thong.
I've added a simple but effective rack mount to each bag which secures the bag to your rack's horizontal rails just like a pannier would mount. Then, a nylon strap and cam-lock buckle hold everything on and in place. They will fit any standard diameter rack tubing (approximately 10 mm diameter)--Nitto, Tubus, Axiom, Blackburn, Jandd, Old Man Mountain, Pletcsher, etc.
They are all one-of-a-kind. Each has it's unique patina and character. The majority of the leather color is in the honey to auburn spectrum. They have been used and do show signs of use. The leather might have some scuffs and discoloration. The fabric may have some very light stains.
Generally, they look pretty great, clean up well and it's remarkable that they are about 25 to 45 years old (all are signed and dated by the saddle shop that made them--from the 1960's). They've all been cleaned by hand and the leather treated with preservative. They aren't waterproof, but the thick fabric and saddle leather would be okay with the occasional light rainfall.
