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.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have this same bag on medium size and is a very durable one, very tough. I decided to upgrade to the large in part, of the things that I carry in it, I needed the extra space. I put inside 3 CO2 cartridges, chain tool, 2 tire levers, presta valve adapters, spoke tool, patches kit and a CO2 tire inflator and still have lot of space inside. Now I'll have space for my keys. Still is not a huge bulk under the saddle. More than pleased with the extra space. ,
I have the medium one and I carry 2 CO2 cartridges along with Genuine Innovation Microinflate Nano, 2 tire levers, chain tool, Park Tool folding allen set and some spare change. I was looking to upgrade to the large, but I really don't know, I really want to keep it simple under the saddle. After muddy rides it's really simple to clean and dry fast.
Well, this is actually the "LARGE" size seat bag...wouldn't recommend any size smaller unless all you want to carry is some lip balm. Only kidd'n...but there's not that much room inside, even in this so called large...just enough for tubes and a few small tools...just enough!
I have the "Large" size bag, with no problems at all! It fits secure; streamlined; water resistant (the zipper is much like Gore's ALP-X 2.0 GT zippers); great reflective strip on the back + loop for additional light/reflector; doesn't hang far down under seat, or sway on 'bumps' etc. Holds just the essential tire changing needs, which is less stuff to pack in my hydration pack...gotta love that! My bikes' (Trek Fuel EX 8) frame is 17.5" for size reference
It fit a lot; I even put my phone and keys in there, but when I'm out of saddle or when I rock my bike side to side, it will sway. I really dislike that, so I have purchase a Arundel Uno as a replacement. The swaying is only a cosmetic issue -- it does not get in the way of the function of the bag.
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
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 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.
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).
