Here's the full text of the review in London Cycling:
"Why didn't anyone else think of that?" Our first thought on seeing the retro toe-strap o the Rydal's main compartment; it's functional, witty and a nod to the company's cycling heritage.
Another neat touch are the shoulder straps made from car seatbelt webbing. They've not scrimped on the heavy-duty waterproof cotton duck fabric or substantial leather base either, as it withstood 30 minutes under the shower as an initial test.
The tartan-lined interior is closed with a drawcord and we found it could swallow 2 large box files.
Externally, there's two pockets, a minimally padded back panel, carry handle and LED light loop. Surprisingly we didn't miss a chest-strap because the pack sat firmly, albeit a little higher on the back than usual.
Overall, it's hats off to Carradice for making a pack which shares the quality of its saddlebags.
