Gilles Berthoud continues to make the classic Sologne handlebar bags. With more than 50 years of experience, their bags are sewn in France by hand from waterproof cotton, and edged with leather. These traditional materials work well, keeping the contents dry even during a rainy 50-hour ride in Paris-Brest-Paris, and they are lighter than most “modern” materials, too.
Gilles Berthoud Saddlebag, Strap
Lightweight, beautiful and functional: The Gilles Berthoud saddlebags are banana-shaped to optimize the space under the saddle without getting in the way of your pedaling legs. Hand-sewn from the same waterproof cotton with durable leather edging as other Gilles Berthoud luggage, these bags have proven themselves for decades over hundreds of thousands of miles.
