Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous I think it is enduroexpert who has gotten this a**e about face. I can't always know when it is going to rain. And if I'm parking outside then it is almost-certainly on a public street and therefore an unsecure location. I don't know where enduroexpert lives but if I park on the street there is always a good chance somebody will steal something off my bike out of sheer badness. So the notion of leaving a cover on my bike when I'm not there is exactly that - a notion. What I *need* is a cover that I can put on the saddle when I return after it has been raining. Not something that can be easily-removed while I'm not there so as to cost me money because its funny for somebody else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Not very good
The draw string is too thin and weedy to cope with the heroically stiff cover material, and the draw string button is in turn too weedy to cope with the weedy draw string.
A good idea poorly executed - wouldn't buy another.

Jonowee from Austrailia as obviously got the whole concept a**e about face.....!!!! As a cover for your saddle to keep it dry whilst parked up outside the office/pub/house it does a perfect job. It was not designed to use with the weight of your a**e on it. Absolute value for money, does what it says on the tin and you can mount a dry saddle before riding home at night...........I'm ordering another right now...!!!!!

It's not waterproof. That's all it's for and it doesn't do it. Verdict: I'm going back to a Tesco bag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Medium is too small.
My wife has the large cover for her large B67s and it does the job perfect. I got the medium and is only partially waterproof. Its a snug fit on my B17 and water still gets in at the sides and back of the saddle. One problem I noticed is that they have the velcro strap stitched on but not seamed sealed and it lets water in at the rear. My wife's large one works fine.

If you are a cycle tourist/camper like me and you leave your bike out overnight and you have a Brooks saddle (or any other saddle that you don't want to get wet) then you need one of these. Much better than the usual carrier bag!

Protects precious Brooks saddle from bad weather. Light enough to be brought along anywhere you cycle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Crapy cover
Had it (size L) on my commuter bike with a B17.
It's really heavy, quickly ripped beacause the fabric is too stiff, and so wasn't waterproof anymore.
Finally the string broke and I lost the cover...
