Awesome Bag

Bought it to replace a six year old version of the small Vitesse Musette that I used as a daily carry in all weather conditions. It wore excellently but my laptop is now larger, super happy to see the larger version was available now. I went with the all black. It looks great.

John D. (Auckland, New Zealand)
Musette Plus

I wanted a bag suitable for the daily commute by Vespa as well as being something stylish enough to suit a professional office environment - also needed to fit my 16” MacBook Pro.
Great product, arrived promptly from over the water to NZ and has already been put to good use.
Love the products from Waterfield and highly recommend them - as well as their great service ! John


The Vitesse Musette Plus is perfect in it’s simplicity, classic design, and durability. Love it!

Kevin L. (New York, United States)
Vitesse Musette Plus - Black

I have been looking for a replacement for my old Jack Spade for years, but haven't found anything I really like until now. As my everyday bag, it provides the capacity for all my work essentials but minimizes excessive weight or bulk. The design focuses on simpliciy, details of assembly, proportions and materiality and resists the urge to add unnecessary flourishes or add-ons as decorative elements. Some minor nitpicks for the obsessive compulsive- the rectangular ring strap looks like it is brake formed whereas the triglider and buckle are higher quality cast elements. A strap pivot would have been nice as the strap bunches up in the ring and looks unsightly. Also a loop or zippered pocket on the interior would be nice to mechanically secure keys or a tracking tag. Overall, an excellent product.

Vitesse Musette Plus

I love the bag. The craftsmanship is superb. The strap is super comfortable. I get a waxy feel on my items when I take them out of the bag but I don’t mind. Bag looks and performs great.

The minimalist design and open interior lets you carry whatever you need in this versatile, lightweight bag.  

“The WaterField Vitesse Cycling Musette is a comfortable bag that's unfussy and not trying to do anything other than be a perfectly simple little bag.” 
- Wirecutter (New York Times), April 27, 2020


Not all waxed canvas bags are created equal. Lower quality bags use 6 oz. canvas. The majority designated as “durable” use 12 oz. canvas. At 15 oz., our waxed canvas exceeds what is commonly sold in the market, yet it's still lightweight. It has a naturally rugged, distressed look and can be re-waxed to freshen it up. 

The canvas comes from a reputable U.S. mill that has produced these fabrics since 1930. This specialized textile is coated with Martexin Original Wax™ and shouldn't require much cleaning. Stains can be wiped off with a damp cloth. 


Keep your bag Vitesse Musette Plus looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although you can use any wax, you may want to try Martexin Original Wax™ which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 



The Vitesse Musette Collection has a straightforward, uncomplicated design — ideal for your minimalist, lightweight everyday carry. Choose from three sizes: the small Vitesse Cycling Musette,  the medium Vitesse Musette Plus, or the large Vitesse Messenger Bag


Made from premium waxed canvas. 



In the cycle racing community, musettes are used to store lunch so riders can eat while on the bike.  The musette's simple, roomy interior is ideal for carrying assorted replenishments and makes it easy to quickly access. 

WaterField's Vitesse Musette Collection takes the musette beyond its cycling roots, adding modern features to make it more comfortable, functional, and stylish for everyday  use.
