Helen Bridgman reviews the Vel-Oh Musette
I love the retro look of this musette. It's very stylish but also incredibly practical. I didn't plan on testing it in the rain, but I have to say that it more than held it's own in the inevitable downpour I faced on my first outing with it! The outer material is very durable and it thankfully kept all my stuff bone dry.
One thing that struck me is that it's super light but very sturdy - I didn't feel as though I was wearing a bag. It also stayed in position on my back. I've found other, lighter weight musettes constantly move and you have to keep pulling them back into position!
The bag is small but quite roomy and the fastening straps are adjustable so I managed to pack quite a bit into it. The polka dot lining is a nice touch, adding further style. I will definitely be wearing this off the bike too.
