The Duke is a deeply lovely 100% leather bag from cycling bag specialists Hill & Ellis that's likely to turn heads whether or not you're using it on your bike.
Crafted from rich, cherry red leather, the Duke is trimmed with dark brown straps, with metal detailing in an antique bronze finish. It not only looks stunning and works effortlessly as a bag, but also exudes that heady smell of leather.
The practical shoulder strap complements the fixed handles. Its cycling specific features are subtly integrated: an external zip pocket for quick access to essentials, a inside bike key hook, internal zip pocket and a protective laptop sleeve (13"). Also included are Hill & Ellis' standard crafty features like a metal leather protector to stop the bag chaffing on the pannier rack and reversible reflective strips for increased visibility.
The Duke is large enough to carry a full change of clothes without being unduly cumbersome:
Dimensions: 47cm (W), x 33.5cm (H) x 13cm (D)
Capacity: 15.5 litres
Please note the pannier hooks are designed for a standard pannier rack only (6-10mm in diameter) and they do not fit onto a Brompton bike.

Hill & Ellis was created in 2012 by Catherine Ellis. Catherine is a fanatical cyclist but one who prefers not to look like an Olympic track cyclist when she arrives at work on her bike! This extended to her choice of bag - she became fed up with the many cycling bags that fail to combine practicality with style.
So she decided to design and produce them herself. All her bags are designed with the particular needs of the cyclist in mind, but you don't need to be a cyclist to fall in love with them.
Hill & Ellis bags are conceived and made in conjunction with a workshop full of highly skilled bag makers in Delhi. Catherine has spent time in the workshop and has seen personally their intricate skills and happy working conditions. And the finished products are testament to both things.
