Carradice’s classy British-made (by Sue!) Rydal is a lovely piece of kit, complete with stainless steel and leather ‘toe strap’ to secure the top. It’s constructed from heavyduty waterproof cotton duck with a waterproof lining and drawstring closure. There’s an outside zipped pocket, a leather carrying handle and base, and more back padding than the similar Brooks bag. We were concerned the shoulder strap-only design might not be stable when riding, but it was fine, though the bag does sit slightly higher on the shoulder. It’s weighty, but this is style and quality at a decent price.
