Last year Shimano announced that they would be venturing into cycling bags. While messenger bags had been available under Shimano’s PRO label, this was the first time a whole range for mountain bike and road had become available under the Shimano moniker. The Osaka Messenger bag is the road offering. This bag is available in 25 and 35-litre sizes. It has a padded laptop pocket, a generous main pocket with lots of organiser sections and a padded rear. Both main compartments have zip pockets and the front flap has a separate closure. Importantly a sternum strap keeps everything in place while you’re riding, something many manufacturers forget.
