Detailed Description

These compact, lightweight, and exceptionally durable TrailMax saddlebags are the ultimate in functionality and design. The main compartment on each side is just large enough for a lunch, first aid kit, or extra layer of clothing. Compression straps can be used for securing rain gear or our TrailMax 500 Series Cantle Bag (sold separately). A zippered pocket on each side allows easy access to a cell phone or small camera. The front pocket is ideal for a trail guide book or map, with a mesh pouch to keep smaller items contained. Finally, the pocket inside each flap keeps small essentials such as cash, keys and photo ID easily accessible.

Older Model Holding Up Well 6/14/2020
I have an older version of this same style made back in 2009. They have held up well over the years. Very handy and just the right size for a gaited horse. I have used them every summer for lunch, maps, water, etc and on several Competitive rides. Sad to hear of the zipper issue on the newer bags.

Thank you for the review! I'm glad you're still getting some use out of your bags. We did have an issue with the zippers with one shipment, but have since replaced them and haven't had any trouble. Happy Trails!

Zippers still bad 2/18/2020
Love these saddlebags more than any other kind I've tried, but the zippers continue to fail within 6 months of use. I'm on my 4th set because the first 3 sets had zipper failure. If they ever perfect the zipper, these saddlebags will be the bomb. Perfect size, great material, lots of pockets and they look great.

Bad zippers 5/20/2019
I'm on my 2nd set of the TrailMax 500 Series Back Pockets saddlebags. Zippers tore up on both within a few months of use. Also own the TrailMax 500 Series "Front Pocket" and "Cantle Pocket." Zippers tore up on those as well. Love the design, look, material, size and construction of these bags. But the terrible zipper quality makes them worthless.

I am so sorry that you had trouble with the zippers. We did learn that the waterproof covering on these zippers initially did not hold up as well as necessary; once dirt and horsehair get between the covering and the zipper teeth it would fail. We have improved the zipper quality, using a heavier-duty zipper, and have had much better luck. Please contact us and we will get the defective bags that you have replaced for you.
