Those are wonderful pics of rando bags. I've been enjoying your blogs for a couple of weeks now. Great topics!

Don't forget the Velo-Orange baguette bag

Pictures of mine: here and here.

AND! the Acorn bags: Handlebar bag pictures (taken by Russ Roca, a very good photographer) and their new Boxy handlebar bag.

Thanks for the bag additions/updates! I've seen (and liked) the Acorn seatbags but not the front handlebar bags.

The Inujirushi is my rare bird/Audbon/Scarlet ibis sighting.

They aren't quite as rare here in Oakland - especially when I used to stop by Jitensha every weekend just to stare at the wares. I stopped, since I felt bad only buying random fender hardware and the flat bars.

Great collection of great bags. Inspiring!

Great compilation! I am searching for a rando bag now, looks like I'll have to be patient and wait for Acorn to start taking orders again in a few weeks.
