The New Looks have, as fortune would have it, a distinct look. Made in Holland, quality is good and they’re an easy bag to go shopping with: they sit well and load up easily.
There are handy pockets on the outside to carry keys and a wallet, with a larger front mesh pocket too. There’s some reflectivity and a simple, single fastening lid clip – the top is elasticated to keep a snug fit.
There’s a lid pocket and one in the base too, which hides a bright yellow shower cape. The real letdown though is the R & K mounting system. It’s the same as that on the much cheaper Agu (adjustable for width but not position), albeit without any stabiliser at all.
