We purchased the Brompton Barbour Tarras shoulder bag as it was a decent size (not too big, and not too small) for every day commutes where I can transport my breakfast, lunch and a change of clothes.
It has two separate pockets at the front and also a laptop sleeve which fits a 13 inch laptop. It is supported by a removable built in frame which attaches onto the Brompton seamlessly.
The fastening at the front takes a bit to get used to, but isn’t too cumbersome as first thought. Much prefer this styling over a velcro or plastic clips.
Overall the bag feels solid, is made of quality materials and has a timeless classic styling that matches the Brompton.

Handy Front Pockets
Although the bag had a premium over the other Brompton bag range – it certainly felt it was worth the value it provides. It is worth noting that it does not include a separate rain cover as the material is apparently water resistant. The quality construction gives confidence it is a bag that will last and it has become my favourite commuter companion.
