Brooks England has been turning out leather bicycle saddles since 1866. So it stands to reason that in those 145 years, they've learned a thing or two about what serious bikers need. This month, the storied British brand reintroduces their line of classic cycle bags, updated for today with plenty of 21st research and development. That means water resistant cotton canvas, a new indestructible buckle design and complete comfort when utilizing the bags' cleverly engineered, extra-wide adjustable straps. Our favorites? The Islington rucksack, a large backpack with straps that can be easily adjusted to stabilize the bag while riding. And the Hampstead Holdall, a mammoth expandable duffle that can be worn as a back pack, strapped to your bike rack or simply slung over a shoulder.
