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.
