Product Description

Developed in collaboration with British luggage maker Chapman, the supremely functional Game Bag will appeal to the Brompton owner and cycling enthusiast seeking a high-quality accessory that celebrates the best of British manufacturing with style. Handmade in North West England, each bag is made from high-grade, premium materials, providing robust construction and a high level of water resistance for even the most changeable rides. Additionally, every bag is individually checked and hand signed at the Chapman factory.

Features include a large central section with a padded laptop compartment, two wide pockets for easy access to all your essentials and improved leather zip pulls.

Updated for 2016, the Game Bag is now available in two distinct and premium finishes:

  • The Peat Green model is constructed from an heavyweight waxed cotton canvas, made by a specialist producer in Dundee, Scotland, weather proofed to repel rainfall. The Game Bag is finished with classic brass hardware, sturdy YKK zips and tan brown details.
  • The Storm Grey model is constructed from genuine Harris Tweed, a world-renowned fabric handwoven by traditional methods in the Hebrides, off the coast of Scotland. This hardwearing woollen fabric is woven on the Hebridean Island of Harris according to strict regulatory specifications. Laminated to a contrasting coral cotton twill with a waterproof membrane, and treated with a water resistant coating, the result is a stylish, water resistant and durable bag.

    I purchased the Storm Grey Game Bag about a week ago. The quality feel of the materials definitely deserves the “Premium” category. I really like the traditional feel and colours of the tweed, and the ‘Harris Tweed’ patch inside is a nice touch and the contrasting orange liner is a great combination. It may have been nice to have a black leather “Brompton” patch on the centre of the main flap, similar to the original Game Bags. I haven’t had an opportunity to test its ability in the rain, although the rubber layer mentioned in the description makes me feel the bag will be fine in all but the heaviest winter downpours. The “shower cap” that comes with it easily lives inside the bag incase you get caught short.

    I own the O and Mini O Ortlieb Bags, and the benefits of the Game Bag over these is the fact it looks like a really nice “normal” bag – switching from cycling to carrying it looks great, I even use it on days when I am not taking my Brompton (and the frame can easily be removed by poppers if you don’t want it on). The built in strap and leather clip that holds it safe whilst cycling is also a great benefit (the Ortlieb straps aren’t designed to remain attached whilst cycling, meaning they need to be clipped/unclipped as you switch between cycling and walking). This means you can throw the bag over your shoulder when you stop and fold, freeing your hands for other things like opening doors or carrying your helmet. The side pocket is also perfect for your phone, meaning easy access if you are pulled over and need to take a call or get directions without having to take the bag off and open it up. The laptop section is padded also, and fits my 13″ MacBook Air in snuggly – even with the Côte&Ciel sleeve I have on.

    Although at the higher end price wise, and when compared to the Ortlieb O Bag and its price tag, I definitely feel this bag has a place in my collection.

    The game bag is a perfect companion in my everyday travel even if I’m off to work. I’ve been using it for almost half a year now and I have no problem with it. It comes with a plastic cover that when you can cover when it rains. And of course, the colour of the bag is still as new despite of all the weather it encountered.
