This is for a pair of panniers--you'll receive two bags. I'm also selling them individually (single bag) in my Etsy store.

I have one pair in honey--that's it!

These are vintage 1960's actual Swiss Army issue ammunition bags that have been peacefully repurposed to haul your items on your bicycle's rack and shoulder. Made from a heavy duty sage green cotton twill and thick saddle leather.
Outside, they measure: 11.5" Wide x 9.25" Tall x 4.12" Deep.
Inside dimensions are 11" x 3.5" x 8.25".
Your iPad will fit inside quite nicely. They won't fit a laptop, sorry, but some other tablets will fit.

I've added a simple but effective rack mount to each bag which secures the bag to your rear rack's horizontal rails (Just like a pannier would mount) with a pair of hooks. Then, a nylon strap and cam-lock buckle hold everything on and securely at the bottom. They will fit any standard diameter rack tubing (The hooks are approximately 10mm wide at the opening). You'll need a rear rack. Any of these will work: Axiom, Nitto, Tubus, Trek, Blackburn, Old Man Mountain, Jandd, etc. Contact me if you have some unique rack need--they can fit some larger diameter tubing as well!

I now include a removable 44" long leather shoulder strap you can wear when you're not riding and when you do, simply remove it and stash it in the bag.

Each bag is one-of-a-kind. Each has it's unique patina and character.

They have been used and do show signs of use. The leather might have some scuffs and discoloration. The fabric may have some light stains. They will smell like mothballs!

Generally, they look pretty great and it's remarkable they are about 40 to 45 years old (they are all dated with maker's marks--from the mid 1960's). They've all been cleaned by hand and the leather treated with saddle wax.
