Aerostich Dispatch bag $87 (£54), organizer pocket $22 (£13)
Miles covered/time: 4500/five months
What's good: In typical Aerostich style its quality of manufacture and attention to detail are second to none. It has a large movable pad attached to a very easily adjustable shoulder strap, which can be set for optimum comfort. Inside the bag is a yellow waterproof liner, one built in pocket, a click on key loop and a Velcro type strip where you can attach an optional Organizer Pocket for your odds and sods. On the outside there is the signature Aerostich reflective strip with buckles to keep the lid closed.
Its capacity is perfect for a few books and a packed lunch. There is also the facility for a stabilizer strap to stop the bag lifting in the wind, but so far I have not had the need. A real quality piece of motorcycle luggage!
What's not: Prices vary according to the exchange rate, and you’ll need to factor in import duty. But the product itself is really very good.
