Review: Vincita’s B203B "Office Bag City"

Another Brompton Bag Vincita sent me for review was the B203B Office Bag City for the Brompton.

Vincita’s B203B "Office Bag City"
Features
  • Padded compartment for laptop
  • Organizer compartment
  • Two large safety reflective spots on both sides
  • Removable shoulder strap
  • Quick release mounting
  • Raincover include
Dimension
  • Width 36 cm
  • Depth 14 cm
  • Height 33 cm
  • Volume 16 L
  • Weight 2.1 kg

Pretty tough wearing material in person and feels it could handle just about anything thrown at it.

Removable shoulder strap
Big chunky shoulder strap so it can be  carried over your shoulder without any problems at all & is pretty comfy even with a load.



I do like the way the mounting plate can be covered with same material and the velcro sticks pretty well in place once in place. When not in use it hides away inside the zip compartment just above it.

Not the only way to be carried with this handy handle.


On the inside there are lots of little compartments to store all your office type items as well as a laptop.


My 15" Wide screen laptop doesn't fit inside the designed laptop compartment of the bag unfortunately. Maybe a non widescreen version would fit though. So bare that in mind if your needing to carry a widescreen laptop.

Wide screen laptop too wide
But does fit inside the main compartment though.

Real World Testing:
Used the "Office Bag" at the Brompton World Championships 2015 back in August which managed to carry all my cameras, water-bottle & my now infamous black and yellow jacket.

One thing I did find when the bag was heavy is that it touched the top of my SON Edelux II LED. Same problem I had with the Vincita Mini Front Bag I reviewed earlier in this blog.

Mounting plate
Overall its a good bag, well constructed & an alternative to the Brompton O Bag. Price is much less than an O Bag too which could be an issue with some. Plenty of space for your paperwork as well your laptop so long its not a widescreen.

Can order  from  South Downs Distribution for UK/European Distribution

Direct link: Vincita B203B Office Bag City for £139.99  (at time of posting)
