Top Gear: Shimano Osaka Messenger Bag

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.

Giant's tyres and wheel sets are seriously underrated. The time will come when people buy them for other brands of bikes.
