The world's very best water bottle cages are made by Ft. Worth, TX-based Arundel Bicycle Works. But they do more than cages! They also produce a stellar range of saddle bags optimized for gravel riding.
The Gordo seat bag in the biggest one in the Arundel range. It has the space for all-day (and all-night) riding adventures, and it's constructed to last for years.
The Gordo is made from nylon fabric impregnated with thermoplastic polyurethane. Think frogman raft. The straps are also nylon and wider than usual, like seat belts in planes and cars. A wider strap means more Velcro area for better security when you're banging around on the worst of the worst gravel roads.
