That’s it for Black Friday / Cyber Monday! Thanks everyone for your patronage.
D-rings on top for attaching more gear
The main “reverse opening” lid opens away from the saddle. Optional dividers keep gear separate. Snaphook inside the zippered lid pocket is for keys.
The 6.8 now features the option to purchase padded dividers for organizational help.
The 6.8 now (Feb. 2016) was upgraded with a removable HDPE framesheet, providing more shape to the bag & keeps it off the rear tire.

Rainlegs can be slung around the top of the backboard and secured to the bottom of the bag (black & gray color shown).
2.2 bag (new 2.3 is similar in size to the 2.2) on the left and 6.8 bag on the right (black & gray color scheme shown).
For more capacity, the 2.3-DT (#2223) bag can be mounted forward of a larger bag on the L-Bracket (old style 2.2 bag shown).
Bag on left is with no compression/tie down strap. The right bag illustrates how the strap “pulls up” the bag to a more vertical position.
A zippered pocket under the main lid has room for small items, a brevet card and also has a lanyard for your car keys (black & gray color shown).
Many accessories can attach to this bag (although on future models we may omit the secondary light attachment on the front pocket — placing lights on your down tubes is usually better).
Optional Yield Symbol has an extra hook and loop extension is provided so it can fit over clothing attached to the bag's outside.

eoGEAR Zippered RandoBag 6.8

Overview

This saddlebag is part of the eoGEAR RandoBag family — a new system for the self-sufficient cyclist or randonneur.

  • U-shaped internal Polyethylene framesheet to provide rigidity to the bag and to prevent the bag from dragging on your rear wheel. It is removable too. Two optional padded dividers are also available.
  • It attaches to any of our saddle brackets, but we recommend an L-Bracket because it will hold the bag in a more upright position. (Most Brooks, all Rivets or Selle An-Anatomica require a 2311 “Wide Rail Adapter” when used with a L-bracket.)
  • Attaches to the handlebars of your bike instead of a saddle (select SKU 3468).
  • The bag is slightly compressible, so when you are wearing much of clothing (i.e. night riding), the bag squishes down, so the remaining contents don't rattle around. 
  • Various pockets are specifically designed to hold a US Brevet card (4.25"x5.5"). Also holds US auto road maps folded in half.
  • Secondary exterior mesh pockets on side of bag — large enough for a bike bottle
  • Exterior of bag constructed of a combination of rugged 420-denier Ripstop or 400-denier nylon fabric (with a water-repellent coating on the inside of the fabric — we don’t use cheap polyester fabrics like some imported bags). 
  • Main compartment uses heavy-duty #8 water-repellent zipper
  • RandoBags use the exclusive eoGEAR DTS attachment method (Dual Tab System — two strong Velcro straps that double over each other). The bracket, which the bags attach to is also MOLLE compatible.
  • Bag is currently available in one color scheme, which is all black. (The black and gray version shown in some of the photos has been discontinued).
  • Bag has two webbing loops on the rear for attaching a shoulder strap for off-bike use.
  • Click on photos for more details and explanation of features.
  • Also visit my blog page for the design background of why I created this series of bags.
  • All “L” brackets now include an extra pair of “back up or insurance” screws & washers
  • We have two styles of brackets that our seat bag hangs from, however, because the Dual-mount brackets tilt the bag at an angle, we don’t recommend them for use with this bag because the outside pocket is not very accessible with that bracket style. Because of that, we typically only sell the 6.8 bag with the “L” style brackets.

NEW FEATURE (FEB 2016)

The 6.8 bag how has a HDPE framesheet that is inserted into the bag. It is removable (Velcro) for cleaning or to save weight. It provides shape to the bag and allows the use of two optional padded dividers to be used too. The dividers can be removed and can be placed anywhere inside the bag. The framesheet prevents the bag from sagging when there is little inside it, thus reducing the possibility or rubbing against your rear tire.

SADDLE & FRAME COMPATIBILITY

Our brackets mount to the seat rails of most saddles, however Brooks and Selle An-Atomica ALSO require a special “2311 Wide Rail Adapter.” See the bottom half of this page for other exceptions.

To determine which saddle bracket is best for your size bike frame, visit this page. Frames smaller than 56cm may not work with this saddlebag system as the bag may rub on the rear wheel. 

RANTS & RAVES

“Thanks for a terrific product! Finally a bag system that holds as much stuff as a rack, but without the rack!  I really like that the bag doesn't rub against my thighs, even though I mount the bag on the front of the board.” (D.W. from Davis, Calif., Sept. 2011).
