Just released, the new Dyed in The Wool Toaster Bag is yet another modern take on the classic top-flap-style saddle bag. Their idea was to create a bag with an easy-access main compartment, three internal pockets, and an additional waterproof pocket on the main flap. The Toaster Bag comes with two removable side pouches, and Molle-style webbing across the sides and front of the bag provide plenty of attachment points for lights, dangle mugs, and trailside finds. Hidden under the main flap is a section of elastic that provides yet another spot to lash down a light jacket or to dry socks out.
The bag comes with two cam lock buckles and a large velcro “pocket” underneath the bag that can be used to secure it to a saddlebag support such as the Carradice Bagman Support or Erlen Saddle Bag Support. Dyed in The Wool also let us know that it can be mounted to a rear rack as well.
The Toaster Bag is made to order in Warsaw, Poland, and can be sewn in X-Pac, Cordura, or Dyneema in a wide range of colours and is offered with or without the two pouches. Here’s a quick breakdown of the different purchasing options and pricing:
- Cordura (with pouches): €190 (~$230 USD)
- X-Pac (with pouches): €220 (~$268 USD)
- Dyneema (with pouches): €350 (~$427 USD)
- Cordura (without pouches): €170 (~$207 USD)
- X-Pac (without pouches): €200 (~$244 USD)
- Dyneema (without pouches): €320 (~$390 USD)
