Well, I've been getting tired of doing the plastic-bag commuting with my Brooks... so I've finally buckled down and put together a real saddle cover to use in inclement weather. I have some nice Carradice Panniers, and would have bought one of the Carradice covers if I could find one... but, alas. So I came up with the next best thing.
1) Draw a pattern based on your saddle; add 1.5 inches all around.
2) Cut out some Cotton Duck, fold over the edge, and sew in some nice cotton line.
3) Test fit on saddle
4) (Forthcoming): Melt some Beeswax, brush into cloth. Then melt in with heatgun. If feeling adventurous, throw it in an old pillowcase and toss in the dryer for 15 minutes.
Presto! A perfect Waxed Cotton waterproof saddle cover. I have more than enough left over to make a nice set of Pogies for when the snow falls. I think I'll get some nice felt to line them with.
