Sackville TrunkSack Small
The Sackville Trunksacks, with their dry-waxed blackish green fab, brown leather, silver reflective stripe, and brass fittings look like miniature pirates chests. They’re based on the no longer made Little Loafer and Big Loafer, with a few differences that don’t amount to much, but make some sense:
- the zipper flaps are separate, one on the left, one on the right, and none in front. In a hard pour it might be fine to have the zipper in front covered, but really, now—how much water can get in? Separating them gives easier access to the zipper. But the other way is good, too.
- now the flap opens toward you. This way, it’s a little easier to access your rubies and doubloons as you ride, and the wind blows the lid shut.
- a 3M Scotchlite reflective unracing stripe runs around the perimeter, keeping you visible at night from all angles.
If you’re looking for a little tuff-as-nails bag to fit atop a Nitto-made Mark’s Rack, Mini-front, or M-12, or a nearly as cute much larger just-as-tough one to fit on a Nitto Top Rack or just about any other rear rack with roughly 5 inches between the rails….then these are good ones.
