FYI, this does not fit my Brooks B-68 W touring saddle. Otherwise it'd be swell.
In addition, the one I received (fortunately) did not have graphics as shown.
To me, the point of covering a saddle, in addition to preventing water damage,
is to conceal (not advertise) that I have a lovely (spendy) saddle when my bike is parked/locked.
Nice cover for your Brooks saddle. Can be used while riding your bike with minimal change in comfort. It covers the top great, however, it exposes the underside of the saddle to any road spray while riding in heavy rains. It's probably best used when you park you bike outside.
This cover is one nice addition to my Brooks leather saddle, so far, I have managed to avoid riding in the rain (and in Seattle, that's saying something!), but I'm prepared when it happens. Love the material of this cover, too.
Bought this cover to protect my Brooks B-17 saddle from the elements. The first time I tried to use it, I noticed the small end (front) seemed to have a wad of fabric that would not straighten out properly to get a tight fit over the nose of the saddle. I turned the cover inside out to see what was going on and discovered the stitching across the end was coming apart--right out of the box! I could not believe it, then I saw that the cover was made in China! Thanks, Brooks for such good quality control over one of your products! Fortunately my wife has a sewing machine and she fixed it in about two minutes, otherwise I would have had to send it back with all the hassles involved with shipping, etc. Other than that problem, it seems to be fine, so far.
I bought this so getting my saddle wet from rain wouldn't be an on going worry. Well worth the price. Honestly, buying this is really a no brainer. It protects your fairly expensive saddle. Decent looking. Stays on very well. All that you need.
I bought this cover to protect my saddle from the brutal Texas sun when transporting my bike in the bed of my pickup and it works great. The drawstring keeps the cover on at highway speeds. I highly recommend it if you want to protect your investment.
My Brooks saddle didn't come with a cover and this is a lot more official looking than the plastic bags I've been using as a cover.
It's well made for what it is albeit slightly expensive and It's been holding up great so far here in humid Houston.
