Description

Bag it.

We've tagged along with enough PRO training rides over the years to definitively notice one trend: They might be obsessive about the cleanliness of their bikes, about the mousse in their hair, about how little they can eat, about their wine collection and the # of V's under the hoods of their cars. But one thing PROs are near-universally not obsessive about is their seat bags. As a rule they're old, tattered, and stuff is half-hanging out of them because they get used hard and who, after all, gives much thought to replacing a seat bag?

And then came Arundel...

They've been a long-time sponsor of Team Garmin-Transitions, and they spare no expense in sponsoring individual riders as well. Arundel long ago earned a place high in the pantheon of accessory companies thanks to the exposure they've earned from their well-done product placement, not to mention the effusive word-of-mouth props they get on training rides all over America from riders of all levels. Their stuff works flawlessly, it holds up over time, and it looks handsome.

Arundel Dual Seat BagThey've taken the same keen creativity they applied to their original creations -- bottle cages and bar tape -- and they've applied to that forgettable-but-essential necessity, the saddle bag. In the last year we've spied them on more-and-more PRO bikes all across the globe, and just like the guys who spend 20,000 miles per year on their bikes, this is the model you probably need, the Arundel Dual.

Arundel calls this bag the Dual because it's designed for carrying two tubes. As you may have noticed, seat bags have been shrinking over the years, as though the smaller the better. But some have gotten so small; you wonder how people can fit anything inside them.

The Dual should erase that wonder. You can fit two tubes, two CO2s and inflator, tire levers, and a thin tire boot inside the simple single cavity. Maybe even a few Allen keys if you go with light tubes.

For all that space, the Dual still has a minimal profile. There is a single Velcro strap that loops through the seat rails and around the bag. No second strap wearing through the finish of your seatpost. The bag is narrow enough to nestle in place without abrading the inside panels of your shorts. And there's a genuine leather patch stitched to the back of the bag to protect it from wear caused by rubbing the seatpost.

The Arundel Dual has 30 cubic inches of internal space and comes in black with Black piping. The dimensions are 5"x3"x2". Claimed weight is 62g.

So far so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have owned, and broken, two clip-style seat bags so far so I decided to try one with a simple strap attachment instead. So far this bag has survived half a season and a handful of races with flying colors. The strap can be a little difficult to feed through your seat rails but once on feels secure, even without a secondary strap to attach it to the seatpost.

This bag also holds more than I expected. Though a tad tight, it holds a 29" tube, CO2 cartridge with inflator, a multi-tool, SRAM powerlinks, and a car key.

Can a seat bag be beautiful and durable?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As seat bags go, this one is beautiful. Well constructed, minimal profile w a very clean tailored look about it. I have the dual w the red piping.. Matches my bike perfectly and does not detract from the bikes racy profile. It's a tight fit around the seat rails, and would have liked a bit more Velcro strap to work with, but it stays in place even over tough roads. Very tight fit inside, if u intend to carry two tubes, levers and air. I personally could only fit one in there comfortably w all the other necessities. All in all, love the bag. If you pack the kitchen sink, perhaps not the right choice for you. If your bike has to look good and u are conservative w your necessities it's perfect!

cute! holds things!

I originally ordered the Uno seatbag, but swapped it out for the Dual when I realized I would only be able to fit maybe my patch kit and a Larabar in it (the Uno is tiny.) The Dual offers a bit more in the way of cubic inches and is big enough to hold one beefy mountain bike tube (26"), some tire levers, the lenzyne v5 multitool and a patch kit. I like it - it does its job and is easy to either strap onto my seat or throw into whichever backpack I'm carrying. Also like its cool understated design and piping color options.

They don't last

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been through two of them now, and they don't hold up very well. The first one ripped at the seams on the straps. The second simply ripped along the side of the bag. I do fill this full, but I don't overstuff it.

Tried many others and this is the best!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I started encountering the issue with my shorts being worn down on the inner thighs from the saddle bags I was using. The dual solved that problem immediately, but it also looks much better than the typical bags, because of it's narrow profile. The size is perfect for me too. Can fit a 700x23 tube, two CO2 cartridges and nozzle, patch kit and levers, tool, quick link, and cash. I'm gonna buy another cause it is sooooo good. Thanks Arundel!

Using it for Mtn Biking

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this bag because it is not to big but not too small, and it looks really clean. I can fit a 29 inch mtn bike tube, tire lever, crank brothers 19 tool, innovations air chuck and co2 cartridge. Everything fits nicely and i still have room for a 2nd cartridge. At first when I was out riding the bag slide through the strap so it was still attached to my seat but it was just hanging there, but once i got it good and tight and changed the position of the items in my bag its been solid and I havent had an issue. And for anyone like me who questions if the bag moves around since it doesnt have a strap for you seatpost like post other bags, dont worry this bag move way less than my old bag that had a strap for the seatpost.

The perfect Saddle Bag (IMO)

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this saddle bag for months now, and can honestly say it is the perfect saddle bag...for my needs. What makes this such a good bag is it's slim profile and Arundel's attention to detail. You will find lots of reviews for other saddle bags of this size that your thighs hit, or have a strap that grabs the seat post that will rub your shorts/bibs. This bag was well thought out to avoid these types of issues while still offering plenty of storage for long rides, especially since it frees up your jersey pockets for other things like more food, phone, wallet, etc.

Currently I have the following items in my bag, and I still have too much space left. I end with moving items in the bag. I'll probably upgrade to a larger 9-10 item multi-tool to take up space. If I got a smaller C02 Inflation chuck I could easily fit more small items. The key is to pack it snug so you don't have any rattling. Which even for my current setup, I never hear a sound. This is probably because the tubes line the side walls, and all the other bits go in between them. So that rubber definitely acts as an insulator.

The bag itself has a nice sewn leather patch where it meets the underside of your saddle. This keeps from friction rubbing a hole in the canvas. It also adds a nice touch of detail to an otherwise boring product.

I don't know how much more praise I can give this bag. I upgraded from the Arundel Single, which is another great minimalist bag. The only reason for the upgrade was to easily fit two tubes and two C02 cartridges. I like to be self-supportive on longer rides and its nice being the guy to lend a hand to a friend that's less prepared.

In the end, I did a lot of research and read countless other reviews before settling on this bag. It does what a saddle bag should and nothing more, while also looking much more attractive under the saddle than most odd shaped bags on the market. Get it! You will be happy with your choice.

Superb but not a large seat bag.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The "duo" is not a large seat bag. This is a pro or a con depending upon what your needs and expectations are. Make sure you realize how relatively small this (medium size) seat bag is. Otherwise, it is a very thin (areo) and rather stealthy and even elegant seat bag.

Very Happy!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

2-road tubes (each in a snack size ziplock), 3-Co2s, inflator, 3-allen keys, 2-tire levers (flat ones), glueless patches, 2- Park Tool boots.
Bag is full but not bursting at the seams. Theres room left for my house keys.
Just have to take the time to roll up the tubes tight.
Perfect for me...

Arundel Dual works

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Arundel's Dual seat bag is okay in my book. I opted for all black.

I picked this bag for it's simplicity and understated looks. I like that it uses no special attachment devices to get it on the bike... just a single velcro strap. The leather patch placement makes sense, too. Only time will tell how long this bag will last... but, I'm confident it will serve me for many years to come.

I stuffed the Dual with a spare tube, a Lezyne lever kit (includes 2 levers and patches), and a Crank Brothers Multi 17 tool. It fit's all of this with a little bit of room left. More room can probably be had if I packed a smaller multi tool, loose tire levers and loose patches.

The claim is that The Dual can fit two spare tubes... and this may be true if they are sized for a road bike. I found that it will only fit one cyclocross sized tube. This works for me as I don't feel that I need to carry more than one spare.

If you're looking for a decent seat bag... look no further.

This shows how the bag is intended to be attached, and why the leather patch is helpful.

If it ain't broke...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a classic style saddle bag. Installation was a little confusing, the leather patch is designed to go up against the seat post.

Form Follows Function

Instead of being shaped like a cone or a triangle, this bag is shaped like two rolled-up road tubes. Not surprisingly, it fits two rolled-up road tubes very well, along with two CO2 cartridges, and inflator, a tire lever, and a small multi-tool. It is simple, functional, and unobtrusive. Minus a star because its a little fiddly to feed the shorter end of the strap behind the saddle rail. an extra inch or two would be useful.

so far, so good...

pretty impressed with this bag overall. i can fit two road tubes, two 16g co2 carts, lezyne trigger drive head, park patch kit, sram powerlink and a lezyne sv10 multitool. everything fits perfectly; no extra space, no bulging out.

the main reason i like it is because of the look. generally, saddle bags are hideous; this one's not so bad and serves its purpose quite well for the most part. i do however have a couple words of caution:
1 - the only real problem i had was that the corner of the multitool started rubbing a hole in the bag's side. i'm not sure if it's how i had it packed in there or what but i've pared it down to one less tube and a shop rag instead (really a nicety during roadside repairs) with the multitool packed differently. we'll see how that goes...
2 - if you have a decent setback on your saddle, your thighs may rub against this. totally depends on bike fit/saddle/rider. happens on one bike of mine, but not the other; same saddle design, slightly different setback.
3 - pack it with the tubes towards the leather strip or "top" of the bag, then put everything else underneath. this will cushion it so you don't have metal co2 carts or multitools banging against your seatpost clamp every time you go over a bump (very annoying)

also the photo that realcyclist currently has up is of the arundel uno, not the dual.
