In the early 1930s, Wilf Carradice made a saddlebag for himself and discovered it was far better than anything else available; to this day the family company continue to handcraft waterproof bags from their Nelson (North England) factory.
The Manchester Musette, taken from a traditional cycling bag shape, is crafted in a durable and waterproof 16oz cotton duck fabric trimmed with vegetable tanned leather. The bag comes with a canvas shoulder strap plus a leather carry handle. As part of a special production run for Friends of Fred the musette has been finished with a Stewart tartan lining. Every piece comes with a personal signature from the maker.
