Bikeshop Girl's Overall Conclusion to the review of the Canvas Cycling Saddlebag:
I really enjoy this bag. Packing a lunch or my huge SLR camera is not difficult. The bag is not completely waterproof so keep electronics and valuables in a zip lock bag. I went through torrential downpour a couple nights and had success with things at the bottom of my bag surviving.

Having the weight under you instead of on the front as most people like is better for handling. The price is right at $69.99 as it carries what I normally put in a pannier which runs about that same price. I haven’t seen one of these (Minnehaha Medium Canvas Saddlebag) bags in a bike shop yet during my travels. Ordering directly from Banjo Brothers will be the easiest option.
