It comes with a Mini Tool Roll for organizing the bike tools you take on your rides.

The Rapide Saddlebag fits under the seat of bike saddles. Most basic bike repair tools will fit into the Mini Tool Roll which is then wrapped and inserted into the Rapide Saddlebag.
Actually, no, the tools are not included. We added the Mini Tool Roll so that tools can stay well-organized while stowed in the Rapide Saddlebag.
We wanted to create something that was classy, functional, and time-tested. The leather is so gorgeous that it will develop its own rich character over time.
Ely Rodriguez has been making custom cases to a very loyal clientele of cyclists for a very long time. He shares the same philosophy as we do at WaterField, designing and making products locally. We thought we could create an enduring thing of beauty with the Rapide Saddlebag.
