We’ve restocked our popular, practical Archival Flap Musette which combines the simplicity of a cycling musette with the durability and use value of a field bag. This Fall, the bag is being offered in waxed canvas in tan and olive. We also sell a stealth edition in all black waxed twill. As a testament to the classic style and durability of this model, Cino Heroica – a vintage cycling event celebrating the early days of road racing – commissioned Archival to create a special edition “Cino” Flap Musette. On or off the bike, the Archival Flap Musette will stand up to years of use and abuse while aging in style.

With a slim profile, durable construction and sensible features, we consider it be free of complications and a pleasure to use.
