ReStrap The Loader messenger bag - in brief review£129.00

Versatile with good carrying capacity

BikeRadar score4/5

The Loader is one of the more versatile bags we've tested, with effectively three volumes on offer,

The top can be secured with a couple of buckles, and can then be rolled down to give full waterproofing, and the top section can act as a fold-down flap for smaller loads.

ReStrap tries to use reclaimed materials wherever possible, and The Loader uses car seatbelts for straps. We found the straps a little long, though, and ideally we'd like the padding to extend further up the shoulder for more comfort.

Overall, though, the bag is exceptionally well put together, with left/right shoulder options, organiser pockets and padding on the back.

ReStrap does ship internationally – contact the company via for prices and delivery.
