First Look: Manhattan Portage

First Look: Manhattan Portage

New York-based brand Manhattan Portage are bringing their range of courier bags and other bike-friendly luggage to the UK, and it looks like quality stuff.

Their Messenger bag was a hit with cycle couriers when it was launched back in 1980, and the range has now extended to include backpacks, laptop cases and all kinds of other luggage.

Manhattan Portage say their kit offers "both durability and cool, urban styling" and they use only the highest quality materials –1000 denier cordura nylon, waxed canvas or ballistic cordura.

All the bags are water resistant, and they have plenty of pockets and reflective strips.

We're hoping to have one in to test soon. In the meantime, check out Prices start from £25 (excluding VAT).
