ILE Seat Bag Review
Saddle bag's, are a bit like Marmite you either love them or hate them! So for the lovers or needer's we got one lined up for you, courtesy of the lads at "Lead out",
"Who" I hear you say!
Check them out here........
Impressive or what!
We have here a "Tardis" of a saddle bag! It looks tiny but Mary Poppins would give her eye teeth for this little beauty.
The name is "ILE Seat Bag" (Inside Line Equipment) on opening it out of the packet, my first thought was, how small it was compared to the bag I use, I'll never get all my gear in that!
The Material the ILE Cycle bag is constructed out of is a durable but lightweight XPAC Sailcloth, which means it is going to be tough, and stand up to all weather's. The bag comes with an adjustable strap attachment with bayonet buckle so it can be secured under the seat, and then tightened.
I found it was very easy to attach to the seat, with a Velcro patch for the flap to fix to, it was large enough to be able to adjust to every angle.
The overall look of this is just Amazing, small, compact and has a great feel to it, thats great but will everything that is in my bag fit back in to the ILE, here goes!

There was a lot of space saved by using this bag compared to any others, [and I've gone through a few, ask the wife!] it didn't feel over stretched and it also has a great flap that comes over the front of the opening, which also has a tag on the end so I could fix the strap through it to hold it even more securely in place.
When parking up your bike, you may feel you don't want to leave the stuff inside the bag, instead of emptying it simply un-clip it and take it with you, easy as that!
Now the rear light is much better sited to be seen, and I have also fixed a mudguard just to show how much space the bag has saved!
A Terrific little seat bag, made from strong sail materials, with a first class buckle and strap.
At first sight, you think the bag will be too small, and will not hold much, but you just need to try this one to know that it is more that a bit Special in the way of design and space saving!
A little bit of how the ILE range came about
One of the most amazing things we have done a review on!
