The Lezyne M-Caddy QR saddle bag features a raft of really neat features typical to Lezyne products. If you are not aware of Lezyne’s take on bags they tend to be about organisation and integration and this one follows suit.

The QR in the name applies to the fitting system that consists of a plastic clamp that attached to the back of your saddle rails and holds the bag solidly in place away from delicate bike parts with no rattles or fuss. Don’t be tempted to over tighten the clamp, it remained solidly in place with minimal fuss. The plastic construction could crack if tightened too much.

The wide, drop down rear of Lezyne M-Caddy QR saddle bag opens with a waterproof zip. Inside you are treated to several small compartments all easily labelled with what they should contain – obviously the implication is to purchase the Lezyne products that fit perfectly in these slots but other brands also fit with the usual essentials fitting easily

The construction is of durable, waterproof nylon and the rear part is wipe clean and features a reflective light loop, again seams are not waterproof so keep checking the contents. A really clever feature is the secure external pocket for your multitool, Lezyne has realised that this is the one tool to have quickly to hand. A really well thought out bag for neat riders.
