Most folks already know Arundel -- the Texas-based manufacturer of the world's very best bottle cages. But they do more than cages! They also produce a stellar range of saddle bags optimized for gravel riding.
This version, known as the Pico, is the smallest bag in the range for folks who like to keep it streamlined (or ride with a handlebar bag along with a saddle bag.) It's 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.
