English saddle bag recommendations?

Does anyone have any recommendations for saddle bags for an English saddle? Can I just use regular Western cantle bags? I found one that I like the looks of, but what do you guys think?

Any other suggestions?

Are you aware they make English saddle pads that have pockets? Those would be good for trail riding, too.

I am aware of that and I REALLY want one, but I can't seem to find one under $60 and I don't have that much to spend right now. The thing I liked about the saddlebags I linked to is that they have holders for water bottles. I've seen the pads you're talking about and those pockets aren't really big enough to hold a water bottle (or if they are, that's about all they can hold).

If you have a Greenhawk in your area, they sell saddle pads with pockets that can hold a lot, but probably less than saddle bags, but for much less than 60$ if I remember correctly :)

Out of the stuff posted so far, I like your original find better. They also make ones that clip to your d-rings on the front, but I'm on my phone so I can't link to anything.

Okay, HOW did I miss those on eBay?!

I hear ya about the phone thing...our BO is ADAMANT about carrying your phone ON YOU when you go on a trail ride. His reasoning? "What if you lose your horse?" Can't beat good ole cowboy logic!
