Really comfortable and classy

Posted09 June 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Good quality, Looks great, stylish
Cons: Heavy, Expensive
I'll confess that I had my misgivings about this bag.
Seemed overly pricey and possibly uncomfortable to lug around - boy was I wrong.
It is sooo comfortable to put on and ride with. (1hr30min commute into office, and it feels great).
It is a huge bag! I can comfortably fit all my office gear, laptop etc, change of clothes with loads of space to spare. Yet, with the roll-down top, it never appears overly bulky.
It is such a stylish and well made piece of kit (Designed and Made in Italy). It is beautifully designed. Great pocket for the Laptop/Tablet, and others for the rest of the kit.
Great quality leather and looks like its built to last forever!
Pricey? Well, you get what you pay for; and this is worth it!

Great rucksack

Posted18 April 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Good quality, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
This rucksack is very expensive but if it lasts it will be worth it. The rucksack is very comfortable and has loads of adjustment on the straps. It holds loads of kit and is not uncomfortable when it's fully loaded. I can't comment on the water resistance of the bag yet as it hasn't rained while wearing it. Usual brooks quality which doesn't disappoint,if you can afford the bag get it.

The photo is misleading!

Posted17 April 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great

The photo on the website shows there is a 'BROOKS' logo on the bag, however the logo doesn't show on mine. I am very disappointed.

A stylish, functional rucksack

Posted09 March 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
This is one tough, elegant and well-designed rucksack! The ultimate companion to long explorations on your bike, or just trips to the shops.
Looks like it will last the course and is quite a fashion statement, much like the company who makes it...
Like all Brooks products: expensive, but worth every penny :-)
