BikeRadar score3/5Find prices on Bicycle Blue Book

When you look at the quality of workmanship that's gone into this bag you start to understand why it's quite so expensive.

The pin-sharp finishing is complemented by some very tidy stitch work.

The main compartment, secured with a zip, has plenty of room for paperwork and there's space for a 13in laptop in a padded compartment.

There's also a security pocket, along with three internal sleeves. The flap folds over the top and is held in place by two discreet magnets.

The shoulder strap is so soft and flexible that it needs no padding to make it comfortable while riding, so long as you don't overload the bag.
