Musing on Musett

I have had a previous Blue waxed canvas Musette bag. Unfortunately after lugging iPads and MacBook Airs for several years, my angular but beautiful iPad Pro 12” has worked is edges through the canvas and opened up a hole in the bottom. I was very happy with it all those years, so I was keen to replace it.
I ordered the navy canvas with flap and was pleased to find the current canvas material used is even more sturdy. I love the quality and the excellent delivery time to Australia 🇦🇺.
I have a Cocoon “Grid-it” inside to hold all my accessories and the space behind the Grid-it’s sturdy frame means I can slip the 12” iPad Pro easily in behind . This holds the iPad in place at the back of the bag. I would like WaterField to consider some shock padding inside, especially on the bottom to protect devices in a fall.
Great minimalist bag!!’

Great size for home use

It is an amazing bag I am able to carry a Dell XPS 13 inside of a sleeve, a book, power supply, and 3 small carry pouches with things like cables, adapters, etc. It's too small to use for work to carry my Dell Latitude 14 inch laptop and lunch bag unfortunately. I wish there was a slide pocket where I can quickly put my keys like the other Vitesse bag, that would have made this bag just amazing. But I am able to lift the fold up on one side and throw my keys in a pocket but it's not easy to grab them back out without undoing the latch.

Is this waterproof?

It’s not waterproof, but it is water-resistant.

What is the Vitesse Collection?

Although vitesse is French for "speed", the only speedy thing about the Vitesse Collection is how fast it can help you transition from casual to work and vice versa. The straightforward, un-complicated designs use lightweight canvas and full-grain leather to create contemporary pieces from old favorites. This collection is committed to the essentials, and have an easy, relaxed style: few pockets, no lining, no extra hardware. Fold and take them along as second travel bags, or use as your primary carry-all.

How can I keep the Cycling Musette from sliding toward my side when I’m riding?

Advice from Gary: Any messenger bag will slide around - while bent over on a bike, the center of gravity is below and in front of you - so the bag wants to go there. Larger messenger bags have the cross stability strap that helps keep the bag on your back. The smaller Musette bag is small enough that you should be able to keep it fairly well balanced on your back to keep it from sliding around. Back when I was messengering in Boston there were no Stability straps - we had to balance the larger loads on our back. You want to keep the strap short enough so that when riding - the bag fits into the small curve of your back.
