Alban Bicycle Bags
November 5, 2019
Alban is a London based independent, artisan brand creating high quality, versatile, robust, weatherproof bags, designed for stylish people who cycle.
Inspired by a British vintage and workwear aesthetic, Alban bags are designed to look good on and off your bike, whilst also engineered to handle the rigours of urban commuting and keeping your belongings, safe, dry and packed away in style whatever the season.
Marrying minimal, utilitarian design with subtle cycle functionality, Alban creates a range of classic bag styles with modern, clean lines and perfect proportions. Each bag is carefully handmade by a small team of craftsmen and women using high quality traditional and technical materials. Alban only uses coated and waxed heavyweight British canvases and twills, waterproof Cordura, vegetable-tanned bridle leather straps and trims and solid brass and stainless steel hardware, wherever possible supplied or produced in the UK.
The collection has been designed with the urban cycle-stylish in mind and the bag styles incorporate subtle, practical and clever cycle functionality. From adaptable and convertible backpack strap systems and concealed pannier hooks that easily and quickly transform the bags from backpack to pannier bag, the bags can also seamlessly transition from bike to office, business meeting, gym or city daypack.
Key styles in the current collection include the 13 and 18 litre convertible Roll Top Backpack Pannier, the convertible Tote Backpack Pannier, the Shoulder handled Tote Pannier and an adaptable five-way cycle Satchel. Alban also makes a range of canvas and Cordura technical Backpacks, a Messenger bag as well as a classic Double Pannier bag.
Alban bags are only available to buy direct online from the factory and designer, offering quality handmade bags at accessible price-points and cutting out any excessive middle-man margins.
