Brought a change of clothes for a date night overnight downtown at the Thompson and the Rapha luggage was just the right size. Also, the best brand statement from them in years. A popular fashion brand should have luggage to take on trips and fill with their gear. And, it’s about participating in Rapha’s brand—love or hate them, they’ve slotted in where traditional shops have abandoned the group ride.
I’ve visited clubs in Seattle, London, New York and when they’re at feel at home, reminiscing about when I came up through the sport, racing and working at shops or just hanging out having bikes built.
Considering they’re employing people I know and I see their distinct kits around towns I visit, Rapha’s impact on the market is clear.
Back to the luggage, if you’re into what they do, then def get it. The price of admission seems like a bargain to me.
What I’m Wearing
Sure Rapha is expensive and if you take care of it—wash on gentle, never dry—it’ll last a long time and I still have kit from their launch, one with my name on it from last year too.
Most of the Rapha I wear is clothes from their urban collection that fits my style. For all the reasons, you’d wear it for a ride to work and back, it’s perfect for travel.
and the rest my wallet, keys, etc.
