I spotted The Henty Wingman at the London Bike Show 2016.
As a cyclist who sometimes has to wear a suit I have always struggled with the whole “how to cycle to work but still look smart when I get there” problem. I usually end up leaving the bike at home and taking the train 🙁
These backpacks differ in size and strap design but ultimately they all attempt to solve the problems of getting you to your destination with all your gear, clothing and shoes intact and dry. If you are reading this far you have probably tried the rucksack, the paniers and the ‘wear it to work’ methods and like me not been impressed with any of them.
I met Melissa on the stand who walked me through all the main features of the bags and first impressions were good with sensible design, good looks and practicality high on the list of features she was keen to show me.
I am looking forward to a sample arriving so I can run a long term test and report back further, I wonder if my 15″ MacBook Pro will fit in that pocket? Stay tuned!
