Take a load off: the CarryLight shoulder strap

Having the freedom to sling a bag over your shoulders is great. It leaves your hands free to fiddle with your phone, keep hold of your passport or carry your morning coffee.

But the weight of a heavy bag can also wreak havoc on your back, neck and shoulders (not to mention your posture).

That’s why we’ve gone back to the drawing board and re-engineered the shoulder strap that comes with our WeekenderDay BagBriefcase, and 24-Hour Bag, to lighten the load.

Our new CarryLight shoulder strap is made from a very high quality, hard-wearing fabric. The pad is made from high-density neoprene that can stretch in every direction, to prevent pressure points – and it has a non-slip backing, so it stays put even when you’re running around.

By spreading the weight evenly, our new strap makes your bag feel a lot lighter than a regular strap would.

As well as being fully adjustable, it’s also quick and easy to snap on or off. The two custom-designed spring-clips are super intuitive. And the matte black finish means they’ll never go rusty.

We put this strap through its paces in a series of performance tests, which it sailed through. Now we’re finally ready to share it with you.

The new CarryLight strap comes as standard on our overnight bags and briefcases. Your shoulders will thank you.
