Hey guys,



I am really interested in picking up one of these bags (in red, most probably) but I do have one question. Do you think that the Pickwick could stow a couple of 12" vinyl records? I've checked out the measurements and it looks like the bag might just be wide enough but, due to the fragility of the records, I don't want to have to force one in every time I need to carry one.



Any feedback would be great. Thanks!

I never bought a Brooks bag because too expensive. Now I' received a Pickwick for birthday. Waht a gift! Beautiful - that's not a new - and very confortable on the shoulders. All the pockets I need and nothing more, just how I like it! Much place for my stuff without useless pockets or other. Good job. I changed my idea on Brooks bags!

Hello



I am interested in the PICKWICK backpack, but need to know whether you can carry it as a 'hand bag' using the central strap. As when not on my bicycle I do not want to have the bag on my back.

Any advice from current owners would be appreciated.



Thank you, Henry
A> Hi Henry,  the bag can be carried as such, but is not really designed as a handbag, and therefore we would not recommend its use as such.

This is one of two Brooks bags that I own, and this is my everyday bag. It's a great size, I think. I can hold quite a lot but it isn't huge, either. It's very simple, well-made, and has a great look. The material ages so nicely. I guess the new bags have a laptop compartment but mine only has two small internet pockets that are sewn in. They work fine. It also has the external zip pocket on the side which I find very useful and it's nice to be able to access that without having to unroll the bag. This backpack is comfortable and stable. It is water-resistant but I probably wouldn't use it in a downpour. All in all, a great bag.

Purchased this backpack a couple of weeks ago. Nice, rugged construction. Simple design and roll top offers more or less space depending on usage. One warning, the internal pockets are terribly constructed with a weak thread divider between to separate the two. Have only used the bag a handful of times and already I can see it beginning to loosen and unravel. A real oversight for a brand acclaimed for attention to detail.
A> The production is being modified by a reinforced triangle stitch in the end of the middle stitching. It solves the problem definitively, in the meantime we apologize for the inconvenience and can only offer that you send the bag to us for repair. Best Regards, The Brooks Team

I received this backpack a year and a half ago, as a gift. The backpack looks nicely, and conveniently designed. However, the shoulder straps and the narrower strap of the closing loops are faulty --- they fray way too easily. The first strap which started fraying (from the ends, where it wraps around the shoulder strap) was the chest belt. I literally fell off after two months.



Then, the shoulder straps started fraying, and after a year my right strap frayed so that there only remained two thirds of its width. I bought some cotton webbing of appropriate width and replaced the strap, which is of a lighter color, but still fits and looks well and of much better quality.



No, the left strap is fraying too, and it looks like I will have to replace it in a couple of months. When I got the bag as a gift I didn't know how much it costed. Now when I do, I do not think that such an expensive bag should require major repairs after less than a year of regular use.

I love the Pickwick: I like the simplicity, the materials used, the absence of logo and the functionality but here are a couple of things I would love to throw in to the mix to get me nearer to the perfect, perfect bag.



I think something slightly bigger at the 30 Litres level would be good; but the Islington is too butch with those big buckles and I do not like the logo of that size.



I am quite a broad shouldered fellow (44 inch chest) and so longer straps, maybe another c.15-20cms that allow the bag to worn comfortably over a big coat would make a big difference.

The main strap comes too short
Beautiful materials, but the length of the strap that is used to close the roll top is seriously limiting, as it can not be used to tighten transported objects that "stick out". I have to use other cables for this, which is rather inelegant.

Nice rucksack and pretty robust, even for cycling and hiking! Bought it 2 years ago in Italy!

Carried easily a heavy 15''-laptop, clothes and jogging equipment for several 3-day business-trips or short-holidays over the last 2 years

But there a three snags:

1.)the straps are fraying out now

2.)if you wear a bulky leather jacket it might happen that the straps are sliding from your shoulder if you not close the chest-belt. At least if you are not cycling it might look a bit silly to close the chest-belt having a nice and comfy stroll.

3.)the colour is fading
