Innovative Cycling Backpack - Large



Say Goodbye to Hi-Vis

We are all cyclists now but few of us want to arrive at our important business meeting looking like we’ve come straight from the building site or are modelling Lycra’s latest offence against elegance.

So, we made a simply brilliant bag...not in a boastful sense (though it is rather good)... but because in daylight our roll-top backpack with briefcase handle - is the apogee of smart black leather discretion, ideal for the boardroom. And yet, at night, it will reflect car headlights revealing you and your brilliance for buying it!

What’s behind this solution? High quality perforated pin hole leather behind which is a highly reflective material which shines through the pin holes when you need it to.

Chapman's craft and design skills alongside capacious roll-top styling and reflective safety feature means that all you need to do is remember to remove your cycle clips and you are as they say, 'ready to shine'!

And tradition is the key to our craft skills.

Just as it takes time to create something timeless it takes time to learn the skills to do so.
