Another bag from Brooks to be displayed at Bread and Butter. This one, while simliar in materials to the Hampstead Holdall, seems to function much better as a backpack, while it seems that you may sacrifice some space for comfort. It also includes a new cross strap system which achieves “a level of comfort previously considered unreachable.” For more, head to the Brooks Blog.
“The Islington has been put together with similar materials to those used for the Hampstead Holdall, which we had a look at earlier in the week. It’s a bona fide big rucksack in terms of volume, but boasts such levels of adjustability on all sides that if travelling light, it will remain tight and snug to the rider’s back.”
