Alloy 11 Multi Tool
For long rides under moody skies.
As you and your bike set off on a long, arduous journey, it's imperative to keep your provisions close and to carry them safely. Be prepared for whatever lies ahead by storing them in Brooks England's Isle of Skye Handlebar Bag. Easy to access from the saddle, the bag's name conjures images of unspoiled natural beauty, and it forgoes unwieldy zippers and pockets in favor of a wide top flap that opens onto a single main compartment. Attach it to your handlebars easily with the KLICKfix-compatible Ortlieb attachment system, and then use it to hold your phone, snacks, wallet, or an actual, non-GPS map for navigating uncharted territory.
Brooks England has known how to prepare riders to travel in style for decades, and the Isle of Skye bag exudes the brand's classic elegance with simple tanned leather detailing on its Bluesign-approved waterproof outer fabric. When you at last arrive at your far-flung destination, take in the wide, sweeping vistas from the saddle or off the bike — attach the included shoulder strap to the Isle of Skye Bag to convert it to a cross body bag that you can easily take with you on foot for further exploration.

- Q & A
Nice bag overall
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I like this bag a bit better than my old Ortlieb as the magnetic clasp closure is so easy to operate while riding, whereas the old Ortliebs were impossible to open or close with riding. The drawback is that the hardware keeps falling off. The magnetic claps fall off, and the studs holding the map case (separate part) fall off making the lid and lap case flop around when you ride. They must not know about Locktite or forget to use it in the Brooks plant. Overall a nice bag tho, just hoped that it would hold up a bit better. Ortliebs are tough to beat for quality, so bar is high for the Brooks as well.
Short trips in town so far...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this as a way to carry small items (phone, wallet, apple, and mini-u-lock) to work as an alternate to a messenger bag. It's perfect, and I've received compliments. Mine is the dove color, which doesn't seem to be stocked here. I purchased elsewhere, and it didn't come with the right KlickFix bracket for oversized bars, so you might check before ordering.
This will come in handy for some limited credit card touring this summer, too.
Is the map case included or I need to purchase it seperately?
