A prerequisite of a well-organised day, weekend jaunt or travel further afield is a well-organised bag. To help you get to grips with your cargo, we take a closer look at the ins and outs of COS’ six key variations that meet the criteria for function and style. Crafted entirely from recycled materials, including waterproof nylon gabardine that’s engineered for the elements, each bag has the mileage to withstand plenty of use, and help ease your commute, whatever the weather or distance.
The hands-free potential of this pouch makes it the perfect airport companion. Slender in dimension, it can be worn discreetly beneath a jacket to safeguard possessions on busy commutes, while the webbing shoulder strap can be adjusted to your liking if layered over more substantial outerwear.
They say good things come in small packages, but this bag has more packing potential than you might give it credit for.
Complete with two side slip pockets for your earbuds, front pockets for essentials and internal slip compartments to organise your wallet and passport from your smartphone, it packs a punch and is completely hands-free when you want it to be.
THE MINI MESSENGER
The pouch’s more spacious cousin, this utility-inspired mini messenger expands on all the practical qualities of the former bag (quite literally) with more space to stow your essentials in the main compartment.
Whether it’s for overnight stays, extended commutes or destined for spontaneous adventures, a backpack can do it all, and then some. This style is completely commuter-friendly and primed for outdoor cycling.
Simply hook your key onto the inbuilt clip for safekeeping and stow a water bottle in the side holder for accessible refreshment. It also has a back slip pocket that seamlessly slides onto a suitcase for airport convenience.
THE 48-HOUR HOLDALL
Crafted from rainstorm-ready recycled-nylon gabardine, say hello to our durable iteration of the classic weekender. Perfect for business and pleasure, it can be carried by two top handles, worn crossbody with the attachable strap, or slotted securely onto a suitcase in the event of heavy cargo.
THE DUAL BACKPACK
For trips that aren’t quite a one-day turnaround, this large backpack is dual-designed with detachable and packable shoulder straps, so you can carry it by the top handle as a tote.
