Rapha Musette review

A man bag for the style-conscious cyclist

BikeRadar score3.5/5

A four-litre man bag for the style-conscious cyclist, the tiny Musette is beautifully crafted from cotton fabric and has enough space for your spanners, sushi and spare socks – but not much else.

There’s a sternum strap to help the bag stay put on the bike, some natty clasps to keep it shut and a loop to fix your LED light to. Inside, you’ll find an organiser sleeve and a key holder, and that’s your lot.

In terms of practicality it’s a better bag than you might think both on and off the bike; small, but comfortable and smart.

A heart-rules-head purchase for most, this is a bag to keep in the office for those lunchtime trips to buy your copy of Cycling Plus. You could even put it in your big commuting bag for the times when you just want to swank about.

A lovely thing, just right for taking your PDA and notepad to the posh board meeting
