The Pony Express Saddlebags provide a unique look reminiscent of the bags used by Pony Express riders in the late 1800s. They are made out of durable 10-11 oz. full grain black cowhide leather. Featuring an adjustable yoke, a hard backing, stainless steel buckles, weather flaps on either side of the opening for protection against the elements and a look and feel to the leather you'll not find anywhere else. These saddlebags are perfect to use on a day trip or can expand to fit provisions for a weekend.
If you choose the no yoke option, you will need to use a bracket system. We suggest EasyBrackets.
This leather saddlebag is 12" x 13 1/2" x 5". While these fit most bike models, check your bike's available space for fit. We have a fit guide available here that may help you determine if these bags will fit your bike.

Black Pony Express Saddlebags
Posted by Gary Hills on Aug 18th 2014
I put these on my new 2014 Fat Boy Lo, absolutely perfect! Excellent quality leather and hardware. Puts the HD stuff to shame at 1/2 the price!
Originally ordered the large saddlebag but it turned out to be too big. Exchange was a breeze. Two day delivery and exchange on the honor system..these people are great..like dealing with the neighborhood grocer in the 1950's. Honor system!! C'mon, who does that these days?
This is my second purchase from Fox Creek Leather [1st was a beautiful leather vest, also fantastic] and I am now a lifetime customer. Gonna have to ride by the store sometime. Will post a pic of bags on bike after I figure out how to do it.

I looked all over the net for leather saddle bags for my 2010 Harley Davidson 883 Iron and decided after reading some of the reviews to buy these bags, and I am glad I did. They are beautifully made and look awesome on the bike. They hold just what I need for short trips. I would highly recommend buying these bags.
Old School Happy
Posted by Alan on Jun 24th 2014
Born into the life. Never had much use for the Mister Safety or the Elizabeth Taylor crowd. I have always preferred things old school. I still prefer 45 acp over 9 mm ( yes we do have firearms in Canada ) and American made over Japanese. The last pair of bags I had on my Pan Head were heavy square, hard leather. Not bad just not great.
My first experience with Fox Creek Leather was when I purchased a Rebel jacket. Top of the line. Heavy grade top notch leather with great design and workmanship. I was hoping for the same in my new saddlebags. I went for the Deluxe Pony Express bags for several reasons. I dislike the look of large hardshell or large leather bags. Most of the cheap crap you see on bike shop websites are made over seas and mass produced. I wanted quality and it is true you get what you pay for in most cases. The Fox Creek Deluxe Pony Express bags are the perfect size to fit your chaps, hoodie, cigar case, odds/ends and the handbag of that Hottie on the next corner. Look when I leave home if I have to pack half the house with me. Well I may as well stay home. I ride to be free of the world and all it's trappings. I don't need baggage bigger than my x-wife's.
The deluxe pony express bags seem almost completely flat when empty thanks to the brilliant design feature of soft sides and bottom. Don't worry no issues with strength here. The quick release buckles are great for easy access yet are covered up with old school leather and buckles that work. The side rain flaps that velcro closed do keep the water out work great. One thing that pissed me off about my old bags was the water getting in. Don't get me wrong. These are not water proof but if you want old school style and quality with cutting edge design this is as close as it comes to prefect. The hardware, leather, design and workmanship are unmatched as far as I am concerned.
Fox Creek Leather has my business for as long as I wake up on the right side of the dirt. I replaced my jacket, replaced my bags with Fox Creek. Now my chaps are next. See you soon Fox Creek. BTW What a beautiful part of the USA to drive to. Stop by and visit the shop. The leather is only surpassed by the quality of the staff.
Just loved the smell of real leather!

I have been looking for saddlebags since I bought my 2013 Street Bob and didn't want to pay what they wanted at the dealership for detachable bags. I'm always hesitant about buying things online when you can't see or touch them. Let me start by saying that both times I called the store the week I saw these online both people I talked to where the very helpful. My experience buying from Fox Creek was the best and I ordered my bags Tuesday afternoon and receives them Thursday at work.
These bags fit my bike perfect. Not too big, not too small. It's not a touring bike so I didn't want to carry to much. Just rain gear, some small items, etc.. I have had plenty of space on the rides I've been on since I've had them and have even been able to stuff my (MED) leather jacket with liner in with no problem due to the adjustable straps. The leather is great quality (just loved the smell of real leather when I opened the box) and look amazing. I was able to just throw them over and tie them down no supports needed. The only problem I had was that the with fender guard my passenger pillion did not fit so I didn't use it which to me was no big deal. They are just what I needed.
Should Last a Long Time
Posted by Michael Duggins on Sep 18th 2013
These bags look a lot better than the cheap vinyl bags I had that the bottom fell out of after they were 6 months old. You have great shipping service, it took almost 22 hours after I placed the order for the Pony Express Bags to arrive, few hours later I had them mounted on my bike. I had already moved the rear turn signals back, and had home-made stainless bag brackets that helped hurry up the job. These bags are supper heavy leather, and should last a long time.
The Tool Bag on the front of the bike also came from Fox Creek Leather.

First, the bags arrived in four days, which floored me. Though I did have to pay an extra 40 bucks import duty for leather goods, the total including shipping still only came to around the price you would pay in Japan for ONE bag of similar size and quality.
More delight than surprise on opening the package - I have bought a few things from Fox Creek Leather and always found them exactly as described. Thick, supple, high-quality leather, solid rivets and zippers. (Incidentally, I would have loved to have had bronze or brass fittings if that had been an option). The extra Velcro-closed side flaps are a stroke of genius.
I ride an hour to work all year round, and we have every combination of weather here - hot and dry, cold and dry, hot and wet, cold and wet, so though the leather appeared rich and well nourished, I gave the bags an extra feed of mink oil before fitting. I had to unlace them and widen the yoke to fit over the shocks, which are a tad fatter than the stock ones. I also rigged up a little rubber strap around the base of the shock (a couple of bits from my hardware store) this hooks to the D-ring on the back of each bag. They are so solid that I doubt they would flap around even when empty, but I don't want to wait till my first expressway trip to find out. The yoke fits neatly under the seat, which holds it tight enough to stop it slipping around.
I wasn't sure about putting bags on a Sportster - thought it would spoil the lean shape, but I have to say, I think they look great!
So I can finally do away with the backpack I have been using. Most days I will only have my bike lock, lunchbox and rain suit, but each bag will comfortably hold a couple of six-packs with room to spare, and I reckon combined with a sissy-bar bag, I will be able to carry enough gear for a weekend trip.
