We’re total bag nerds here. Our Brooks representatives know it, and stopped by recently with something special for us. Now on display is a preview model of the new Brooks Pickwick for 2013. The Pickwick is designed as a day bag: not too big, not too small – perfect for commuters, students, and others who do not need a huge messenger-style backpack.

The Pickwick is made to Brook’s quality out of English leather, water resistant waxed canvas, and parachute straps – and they’re made in Italy. For extra security against poor weather, the bag uses a rolltop enclosure. The main compartment is large and has smaller inside organizing pouches. That’s not all, though. Brooks added two extra-sneaky quick access pockets:
…A smaller side zippered pocket that’s perfect for cell phones, wallets, and other small necessities
And a zippered pocket on the bottom for mini u-locks, such as an Abus Futura Mini pictured above –
Our current display model is not for sale, but we are officially taking advanced orders for this simple and elegant day bag. It will be available in multiple colors: asphalt, sand, orange, and purple! The price of this Italian-made bag will be $249. As a bonus, we’re discounting the price on our pre-orders.
