Return To Work With Hill & Ellis Cycling Bags. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. I will share a press release about the new Hill & Ellis Cycling Bags in today’s post. Hill & Ellis has recently launched a range of rucksacks/totes explicitly created for the Brompton bike, which is ideal for the commute, the shops, an evening out and everything in between. We are all aware of the boom in cycling over recent years. The changes to the Highway Code at the beginning of the year mean that cycling is an eco-friendly and pocket-friendly alternative to driving or taking public transport and is becoming a safer option.
With people returning to work after the summer holidays, some will return to a cycling commute. At the same time, others may switch to the saddle for the first time. But… for most cycle commuters, the trade-off can be that they turn up at work looking less than prepared for the working day. Take your bag, for example. Panniers and rucksacks are traditionally functional but ugly and don’t give the right impression as you head into the workplace, boardroom or even to the bar after work.
This inspired the Hill & Ellis range of pannier bags, offering a functional cycle bag that looked uber-stylish when off the bike.

Rucksack/Tote for the Brompton
The iconic folding bike is perfect for many journeys, but if you also have lots to take, the lack of space for a pannier bag may be a problem. But not anymore. The new bags from Hill & Ellis attach to the Brompton bike using the Borough bag frame, which slides into a back panel and is secured with Velcro straps. This also allows the bag to connect easily to a suitcase puller for jet-setting travel. Each bag has patented magnetic Fidlock snap bag closures for ease and security, internal zip pockets for easy organisation and a padded laptop sleeve which fits up to a 15inch laptop – perfect for the work commute.
The roll-top rucksack cycling bag has interchangeable handles, so it can be worn as a rucksack or tote/shoulder bag – making it one of the most versatile cycling bags on the market. All the bags are crafted in black water-resistant canvas with the choice of four front pocket colours in either leather or vegan, eco-friendly faux leather made from apple skin waste left over from cider production.
The bags are available at independent cycle shops on the high street and online, and direct from Hill & Ellis via their website:
Rucksack/Tote Pannier Bag
If you don’t have a Brompton bike but love the look of the ‘designed for Brompton’ range, this bag is the answer. It attaches seamlessly to your bike with German patented pannier clips, which adjust from 8mm to 18mm in diameter, meaning they will fit almost any bicycle. Crafted in black water-resistant canvas with a leather or PVC front pocket, this roll-top bag has interchangeable handles so that it can be worn as a rucksack or tote/shoulder bag. A padded laptop sleeve and internal zipped pocket make it easy to organise your things, and the patented magnetic Fidlock snaps ensure a quick and secure closure.
British Made Satchel Panniers
These pannier bags are a modern twist on the classic school satchel, beautifully crafted in quality leather with striking colour combinations and are handmade by expert artisans in a small workshop in London using materials sourced as close to the workshop as possible. They seamlessly attach to your bike with hidden pannier hooks, and their versatile design makes them ideal for the commute, super bright for the office and trendy enough for the bar after work.
I hope you enjoyed that.
