It has the holder for water bottles on each side, and those are somewhat padded/insulated (plastic sports-type water bottles came with the bag). There is also a nifty little zipper compartment located underneath the water bottle holders, which is great for small stuff like hoof picks, spare latigo, or other things that are good to have but you may not need on every ride.
Wow, thanks for looking and describing them so well......

Now I feel really embarassed that I didn't explain very well what I was after.

You see, the SnugPax brand cantle bags have a fleece lining inside the sleeve (pocket) that fits over the cantle (not the side pockets where you put stuff in). I was wondering if the Stowaway brand is made the same way.

When my only saddle was a Wintec, it wouldn't have mattered. But I bought a new saddle at Equine Affaire and it is made of really nice calfskin. Now I know saddles are for using and the leather's going to show character marks, but I don't want abrasive nylon rubbing on a very visible surface all ride long.

Okay, I see what you're saying now. . .I thought you meant the inside of the compartment itself. . .not the exterior part that comes in closest contact with the saddle. I'll re-checkit while I'm at the barn this evening. It fits different from Snugpax - doesn't have a pocket that goes over the cantle/seat, it just kind of snuggles up right behind the seat.

When I have a chance to check, I'll post back again. . .because I honestly can't remember if there is any difference in the material.

I see where our wires crossed.

I was asking about this kind of cantle bag, since I only have english saddles:



I think yours looks like this, which fits behind the cantle of a western saddle:



Both of those are Stowaways, BTW.

I took a closer look at my old Stowaway bags yesterday - we were doing some "spring cleaning" since our storage room looked like a tack shop threw up in there.

They do have a softer exterior on the sections that would be up against the leather of the saddle. It's not super-fluffy, but it's softer than the nylon material that makes up most of the bag.
