Before I wade through many dozens of products out there, can anybody recommend a good underseat bag for the Mini Step-Thru? I'm about to change out the stock seat to a Cloud 9 Cruiser Select for comfort, if that makes any difference. Need something to stay on the bike with patches, pump, tool kit and etc., water-resistance a plus.

Thanks!

Wow, about 130 views and nobody had ideas. Ok, I'll answer my own question.

This one (BV Classic Bike Saddle Bag), even in Large size, fits fine (amazon.com/gp/product/B00A3W8FFM):

It's easy to install under the stock seat, a little tougher when under my replacement Cloud 9 Cruiser Select (barely clears the springs, but it works), but it still fits even with the seatpost within 4" of the bottom, and with both a rear rack and small basket installed. The back side of the bag runs right up to the basket, so you have to loosen the straps for access to the stuff inside, but that makes it a little more secure and harder to steal.

Pretty nice bag, by the way; a Vibrelli pump fits (diagonally) along with a Milton pressure gauge, 4 Gorilla tire levers, Handlebar Jack, Crankbrothers M19 multitool, patch kit etc. - without having to open the expansion pocket at the bottom.
