Cycling Musette Transformed. Sling the new Vitesse cycling musette on, toss in your wallet, keys, phone and the rest, and you're ready for a ride on your bike or a walk around town. Inspired by the musette bags used in cycling races to pass food to cyclists, this modern version is as straightforward, lightweight and compact, but we've upgraded it to be more comfortable, lasting, functional, and—dare we say—handsome? The Vitesse can easily be folded and packed into another bag for travel of any kind. Premium waxed canvas and leather. What are you waiting for?

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.
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.
