Getaway (South Africa) - - On Track -

There’s no ques­tion that Melvill & Moon pro­duces hand­some gear, and its Bu­l­awayo bag is no ex­cep­tion. It’s ro­bust: made of strong can­vas, it has an at­trac­tive striped cot­ton lin­ing (it has in­te­rior pock­ets too), solid zips and the seams are dou­ble (some­times triple) sewn. Straps, han­dles and cor­ners are re­in­forced leather, and it has solid-brass fit­tings, which we found contributed to its one short­com­ing: it’s a bit heavy (3,6 kg empty), and filled to ca­pac­ity (60 litres) is achingly heavy to lug up­stairs if you’re small framed. But the wheels (a re­cent ad­di­tion) roll smoothly so the weight is no ob­sta­cle on smooth sur­faces. There’s also a small lock to se­cure the leather pull.
