Commute by bike, or use your bike as a form of transportation often? Then you know how tricky choosing the right bag can be. Regular messenger bags or briefcases flop around a bit too much, and it can be hard to find models cut out for the demands of commuting on bike (rain, harsh weather, possible tumbles). Commuter backpacks would thus be the bag of choice, but not all of us want to lug a giant backpack around (and in some professions, wearing a backpack makes you look more like a schoolkid than a pro). So what do you do? Opt instead for the Trakke Wee Lug.
The Wee Lug is a messenger bag designed with bike commuting in mind. Trakke hails from the Scottish Highlands, where they know a thing or two about wet, often dismal weather. So, of course, they went ahead and made a weatherproof commuter bag that could stand up to all that Scottish weather had to offer. It’s a classic messenger bag design, with a water-resistant waxed canvas exterior, polyester webbing and stainless-steel hardware (that is just beautiful). No matter the weather, its’ ready to tackle your morning commute while keeping all your goods inside safe and sound.
There’s ample storage, from the Two expanding pockets on the front to the internal organizing pockets and the 15” padded laptop sleeve. And the carry system is adjustable and customizable to your liking; wear the bag high on your back for biking or low for walking, and switch easily between wearing modes with the quick-adjust and quick-release Cobra buckle.
Classic looks. Waterproof function. Handmade in Scotland. Doesn’t get much better than the Wee Lug.
