The Challenge Saddle Bag is a leather tool bag for fitment to the rear of a saddle bearing bag loops. It features buckles that, whilst fastening the bag to the saddle, are located within the hold itself, thus ensuring greater levels of security. The strap that secures the unit encircles the tools it carries to prevent them from rattling during transit. Made in England from vegetable tanned leather, the first Challenge was designed and patented in 1896.
"Brooks cleaner foam has been developed to clean and restore all Brooks bags’ surfaces to their original lustre and shine. To use: Apply a good quantity to a soft cloth and carefully yet thoroughly rub the entire bag. Leave to dry. It cleans delicately. Proofide may be applied to all leather details, allowing it to permeate before polishing off with a soft cloth to avoid getting any on your clothes. *Note: Proofide will darken the leather somewhat which should be considered when using this product."
How do I maintain my leather bag?
As well as for the saddles, leather on bags and backpacks should be kept supple. The best advice would be to use products specifically for the cleaning of leather bags. Using Proofide to clean your bag can work as long as result in a very noticeable darkening of the leather.
