OK, seriously, helicopter rescue is expensive, but your spouse might like to know you’ll be late for dinner because you’re extracting branches from your shorts.
Lezyne made the Caddy Saddle Bag in three sizes to match your riding style and needs. Stash your mountain bike or road tube in the main compartment and put your multi-tool in the external pouch. The large size comes with a slot for your cell phone, just in case you and your mountain bike land in a tree and you need to call in a helicopter to airlift you out.

Just kidding! But any little thing to help lighten the 'load' and get some of the weight off my hydration back/pack is a beautiful thing! Got the 'Large' (can't imagine the 'M' or 'S' for any kind of long rides, as you can JUST get in the tubes and some small tools, as previously mentioned. But it serves its purpose.
Pull tabs are large and easy to grasp, even with full-finger gloves (had to make sure); it's a little close unzipping just under the seat rails, but can be adjusted to hang a little lower if preferred. Zippers are like the ones Gore uses on their ALP-X 2.0 Jackets.
Wondering if the reflective tab on the back of the pack will be sturdy enough to attach a tail light (?). Didn't have to move the bike's rear reflector (waiting to get a lighting system, haven't decided on which, yet).
Label on tag reads: "Designed in California...Quality made in China".
Will up-date, if need be.
I ordered this bag before but when my bike was stolen i needed a replacement. Last time i bought the medium and it was not as pictured here. It is a different bag as noted by my other review. The large bag was what is pictured.
It is a big bag! Room for a lot of stuff. I commute so during the spring and summer a little extra room goes a long way. top section holds two tubes, patch kit, levers, and a multi tool can even get in there. The bottom section has room for a smartphone and wallet.
Great bag for long rides and solid quality from Lezyne!
Bag was completely different then pictured. Zipper works great. Got two tubes in the main section and a multi tool on bottom. Wanted a little bit of a bigger bag. Wanted the bag pictured but this will have to do.
I can't relly tell howbig this is, will a DSLR fit in it ?
I looked at several seat bags before settling on the Lezyne Caddy. Then I went back and forth on the large vs medium. The medium would probably hold everything needed inside, but it only has a Velcro pouch on the bottom. The large has the zippered pouch on the bottom like the pictures on Huck-n-Roll. It is technically there to hold your multi-tool, but like the H-n-R description says, it holds your cell phone perfectly. I can turn on Sports Tracks or My Tracks, and it picks up the GPS just fine from inside the Caddy.
The little organizational pockets on the inside are handy, but a bit tight. Takes some finesse to get the tire levers in. I use the money pocket to store my patch kit, a power link, and my air chuck. A tube and my multi-tool sit fine in the main compartment with room to add a bar or Gu if I want to cram it in.
I definitely prefer the Velcro straps over other seat bags with the plastic clip on attachment. The straps could be a little shorter though (although I guess that is better than having them too short). The zippers are water tight, and that little gray strip on the back is reflective. Lots of nice little touches on this make it stand out from your standard black just one main compartment seat bag.
A well conceived bag with ample space and clever deisgn. Wobbles a bit under the seat. Lots of pockets inside the bag so you are not worried about damaging your tube/s. Good bag, Made in China. I bought the large and I like the size. And you can access the pockets without unattaching the bag- smart.
will my htc evo fit inside
I'm not sure of the Evo's dimensions but most smart phones would fit fine.
I carry teh Med on my SS 29er..just enough room for a patch kit, one tube, one tire lever and a car key.
I love the key compartment! This guy hangs tough through all my cycling adventures.
I do not trust the velcro on the exterior pocket, though.
I can fit one road tube, the lezyne lever kit (http://www.hucknroll.com/lezyne-lever-kit), money and 2 gu gels in here pretty easy. I could also throw a tool in the separate compartment as well. It has been a great little bag and the med is perfect for my needs (like to travel as light and simple as possible).
I bought the Large for a road bike, it is sturdy and well-made, and holds all the items indicated easily. I have my multi-tool and cell in the bottom, and levers, patch kit, money, ID, and 2 tubes in the top. I could probably slip in one or two smaller items without a problem. The pockets for the levers and patch kit are designed for Lezyne products (my Pedro levers wouldn't come close to fitting), so I ended up buying a pair of their Power Levers and the Smart Kit patches. Works well, although I haven't had occasion to use either yet (and hopefully won't for awhile). Lezyne makes good stuff, I have their Pressure Drive pump that has served me well for several thousand miles.
how do i attach my bag onto my bike?
The bag straps under the seat. First un-loop the vertical strap, put left half of the strap over the left seat-rail, then right side over the right seat-rail. Hold the bag with your knee as you bring long side of the strap under the bag and back through the plastic loop. Pull and cinch it tight. Then secure the horizontal strap around the seat post.
Extra Credit: if you dont want to look like a fred you will rotate the strap so that unsightly overlapped Velcro part is under the seat. Now thats Aerodynamic.
This bag is awesome! Not only does it have great little pockets for phone, money, tools and more...it has little pictures on each pocket to help you understand where those items go. It's reassuring to know that after my super long ride or my super harsh crash when my head may not be all there, I have extra help directing me to where my phone is located :) The large bag fits very nicely under my saddle and fits every tool, tube and extra you could need.
Get it, Enjoy it!
