Brown Leather Saddlebags from India

Has anyone ordered the brown leather saddlebags I'm seeing on e-bay from India made of goatskin? They look pretty nice (though a little smaller than I'd like) and the price is really good. Just wondered if anyone had ordered them and if they were happy with their purchase??

This Indian company has a range of leather bags, is that the one? No mention of goats though...

They certainly look great (and you get 2). India works leather well !

Do you have any water issues with the top opening? I have an older pair of Willie & Max bags that has a flap to cover the top. However, it is a pain because I keep forgetting to close it. It looks ike their new ones don't have the flap, so maybe its not necessary.

Yep, got a pair earlier this year off ebay. No extra duty / taxes to the US. I think they look pretty good and it's nice to be able to carry a few things on day trips. But they are not going to keep any contents dry if it rains - and I'm not sure how they would hold up either.

Yes, I have a set. Paid less than 50 USD for the set, shipped. Great value. Look, they are not big, but I can stash my Frog Togg pants in there. I normally carry a water bottle, some tools, and some rags. Still have room if I pick something up from the store as long as its not too big. I really like them.
