Bellroy System Work Bag Review
The manufacturer chose a strong, thick and textured fabric as the main material for the System Work Bag, which has a high level of durability and water resistance, as well as a discreet aesthetic. The accessory is available in black, blue and gray, and each option is complemented by leather elements that contrast with the main shade.
Comfortable, pleasant to the touch shoulder strap and carrying handles with nylon braid that protects them from abrasion — these elements are the most frequently used, therefore they are characterized by maximum reliability.
With a volume of 16 liters, the accessory weighs only 1 kg. The bag includes multifunctional compartments — this is the flexibility and versatility of functionality for which we love Bellroy so much. The Australian brand brings many of its well-known signatures to the System Work Bag — durable YKK zippers and a neat, organized design.
The front of the bag has two zippered compartments hidden behind a neat front. Both pockets are complemented by different functionality and structure.
The right compartment features a padded stretch neoprene pocket, ideal for sensitive items such as sunglasses or a phone. The left compartment has two pen slots, one larger compartment, branded key clip and space for small accessories.
Rotate the bag 180 degrees to reveal a large zippered compartment on the back. It is quite flexible and ambiguous: deep and spacious — for large items, flat — for work notebooks, tablets or folios. Okay, I understand why flexible, but what about ambiguous? This compartment also serves as an attachment to the handle of the suitcase — just open the zipper from the bottom.
PS The zipper is hidden and does not violate the general contours of the bag.
Carrying comfort is provided by an adjustable, removable shoulder strap with durable padding and metal fittings — smooth buckles and matte clips. Leather accents keep the belt and bag in sync so the System Work Bag’s organic look is maintained no matter how you decide to wear it.
The main compartment is protected from the weather by a longitudinal flap that closes with a Duraflex G-hook. The design of this element is made in such a way that during rain drops flow down without getting inside. In addition, the edges of the flap are complemented by magnetic fasteners — a guarantee that the main compartment will always be tightly closed.
The main compartment has ample space for large items. At the same time, it is surrounded by a cascade of pockets. Two zippered elastic compartments for small items, as well as side compartments for a water bottle or shoes, organize the interior space.
There is also a pocket for a laptop up to 15 inches, protecting the gadget from mechanical damage. The compartment is raised two and a half centimeters from the base of the bag, so if the System Work Bag is accidentally dropped, the laptop will not suffer.
Combining the features of a classic cycling messenger with the casual and neat design of a premium work bag, the Bellroy System Work Bag is a convenient and stylish solution for organizing and carrying everyday items. Anyone who cares about style as much as about convenience will enjoy working with an accessory.
