Hill & Ellis Duke Bike Bag
Dimensions: 47cm (W), x 33.5cm (H) x 13cm (D)
Capacity: 15.5 litres
So many great dukes – ‘Marma’, ‘Ellington’, ‘Sir’, ‘Wellington’ … this bike bag is named after all of them. We thought about having a martini holder but decided the olive might fall out round sharp corners.
Made from luxurious cherry brown leather, this bike bag is trimmed with dark brown leather and all metal detailing is in an antique bronze finish. It also has an external zip pocket for fast access essentials (a fonze comb, keys) and has a shoulder strap as well as fixed handles.
Internal features include bike key hook, inside zip pocket and a protective laptop sleeve (13 inch). This bike bag also has our standard clever bike-y features like a metal leather protector to stop the bag chaffing on the pannier rack and reversible reflective strips for increased visibility at night.
This bike bag is slightly larger than the Bunbury and can easily carry a change of clothes if you like to slip into something more comfortable at some point in the day.
Please note the pannier hooks are designed for a standard pannier rack (8-10mm in diameter), and they do not fit onto a Brompton.
What if it rains?
The leather is very durable but to make sure the rain doesn’t mark, the bike bag comes with its own Tour de Rain yellow jersey, which is fully waterproof, easy to attach, and has reflective strips for increased visibility at night. The Tour de France yellow is a limited edition.
(For ease of attaching we recommend putting the leather bag on your bike first and then attaching the waterproof cover.)
