Sheldonwrote a review of Arundel Dual Seatbag on May 24, 2014
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.
