The hunt for the perfect material proved difficult. The stainless steel buckles used to secure the flap on the Trakke, while absolutely lovely and tinkleclunky in use, are more fiddly to operate than a normal plastic clip buckle you'd usually find on a messenger bag and you need both hands to manipulate them, or be incredibly dexterous with one.

And the hardware is stainless steel. You can also add other items such as an axe, or a sleeping bag using the same strap loops. Experienced craftspeople quietly getting on with the job at hand.

A couple of things to note about the stability strap, though: because it's captive both ends it can't slide to its natural position when on the bike, or be moved to a more comfortable place which may or may not become a bother to you. The attractive buckle aesthetics also suit the overall look and feel of the Bannoch. I was studying Graphic Design but I was bored of computers - I wanted to make stuff with my hands. Outside the bag are two large pockets each with a pleated seam to allow them to expand and both are kept secure and weatherproof with leather-tagged weather-resistant zips. The 17 is the mid-size pack from the Assynt range.

We all stand around it super proud. They use materials from all over Scotland and England and work with some of the most talented crafts people out there. This cracking accessory from Trakke combines their bestselling Assynt 17 and 28 to create the new Assynt backpack — a 20 litre pack designed for life outside.

A bag to outlast trend, fad and fashion. Trakke, make high-quality, handmade luggage for cyclists and outdoor adventurists.

The expanding front pocket is the ideal spot to stash a jacket and you can add Laggan pouches, a padded waistbelt and chest strap to create the ultimate adventure pack. We jump across streams, traverse up mountains and through gullies, and the pack performs like planned. But for me it's edging towards style over substance as the limited carrying capacity exacerbated by the short straps, the fiddly flap clips and the self-releasing stability strap made the Trakke Wee Lug a frustrating day-to-day courier bag for doing the variety of stuff I use my on and off bike bag for. All this and the pack stayed comfortable on my back. Loops in the straps allow for you to add external storage such as the Laggan pouch. Simplicity and efficiency should be your mantra. With the bit of money he made, he began exploring different designs and materials.

We take a lot of care making each bag, and that attention to detail really pays off. In terms of pockets and dividers, the bag has a large, slightly padded laptop sleeve at the rear of the main compartment, two internal slip pockets at the front and two large zip pockets under the front flap. Read on to find out how we designed the answer. The waist belt is much easier to attach, as there is a dedicated holder built into the lower back on the bag. Update on acute ankle sprains. You can fit everything you should need for a short days hike in there. The waxed cotton is thick, and whilst this is good for robustness, it makes for a heavy bag ~ 1.
