I was lookin` for some small saddle-bags for everyday riding.
I wanted them to be small, light, not to cost a fortune and foremost look cool.

Now i found them:

Automotive fuel system Fuel tank Automotive lighting Automotive tire Motor vehicle


Plant Tire Automotive lighting Wheel Vehicle


These are old bags from the polish Army, where they used to carry their canteen and food.
These are roughly 40 years old and price was roughly 18 Dollars for both.
They are big enoug to carry tools, food, some spare parts if needed and also a Jacket or something alike.
They got smaller pockets inside wich are a good fit for smaller things.
I carry chainoil in one for example.

I just fastenden them with cablebinds to the saddlebag-rack.
There relativly wateresistent to, but of course not waterproof, for they are canvas.
You could wax them though.

I really like the looks, cause i am not so into the all leather thing.
And of course i love old junk;)

Looks awesome, and I'm all about cheap, haha. I found mine on Goodwill's online auctions for $20, but they are leather. As far as water-proofing, you could try some silicone water-proofing spray. It'd be a lot easier than wax-coating them, and probably wouldn't change the color as much either.

Of course the looks of that stuff is the definition of ugly ;)

Look on YT for tarp water proofing ideas A common way is to dilute a tube of clear silicone sealer in a large quantity of solvent, and dip the item it and hang it out to dry for a few days.
