D-SHAPED TOOL BAG
The Brooks D-Shaped Tool Bag was featured in Brooks Catalogues as far back as 1910. This innovative design features a two piece construction which, whilst the outer sleeve remains permanently attached to the saddle, has an inner purse that may be removed so that its owner may retain it, thus securing its valuable contents. The purse is attached to the sleeve by a ‘Sam Brown’ fixing, preventing it from sliding out, even under extreme conditions.

- Inner pocket has a high quality zip closure
- Handmade in England

Brooks Company History: Brooks England was founded in 1866 by John Boultbee Brooks, originally to manufacture leather harnesses and tackle for horses. Legend has it that the death of Mr. Brooks’ horse prompted him to seek alternative transportation, trying out the recent two-wheeled invention, the bicycle. He fell in love but found the wooden saddle excruciating. He vowed to make it more comfortable and so the Brooks leather saddle was born.
Today Brooks manufacture a wide range of bicycle accessories from backpacks, bicycle panniers and saddle bags to helmets, poncho’s and wallets and to this day all Brooks Leather Saddles are still hand made by skilled craftspeople using traditional methods in Birmingham, England and the fundamental design of the saddles is unchanged. While the new Cambium range, helmets and bags are all made in Italy.
