Delivery & Returns

The Brooks Islington Rucksack V2 (version 2) is a spacious, water resistant roll-top backpack destined to become your new favourite urban cycling bag. Featuring a slimmed down width specific to version 2, this highly popular, made in Italy pack takes note of considerable rider feedback to maintain all of the features of the original Islington, but with a smaller form factor that will suit a greater range of cyclists.

Tailored with an innovative shoulder strap arrangement trimmed with lovingly crafted buckles to enhance stability, the Islington can be used with both straps crossed diagonally over the chest, or with a single strap secured laterally around the waist. Highly comfortable even when pushed to its maximum 30 litre capacity, the Brooks Islington is a stable, stylish and solid ride companion.

    Heavier than expected and also the finish of the bag is poor, with dye crumbling off the bag as you rub it. Certainly feel the price isn't justified. Would I buy it again if I had the chance? No
