Bedouin Bags Instore

Inspired by traditional craft, geometric art, the macabre and surrealism; designed for comfort and durability.

At Bedouin we believe in quality. We believe you should buy a bag that lasts a lifetime. We do not believe in disposable fashion and an endless replacement cycle; buy quality and buy it once. We are extremely confident of the quality and workmanship of our bags, that is why we offer a lifetime guarantee on materials and worksmanship from normal wear and tear. If you look after your Bedouin bag it should last generations, in fact it will get better as it gets older. In the unlikely case that the workmanship or materials are not up to scratch, send it back and we will fix it if it can be fixed. See our Terms and Conditions for full details.

Bedouin make well designed high quality bags, every aspect of our bags is thought through in extreme detail. Fabrics are sourced from the best British suppliers for their quality, durability and feel. The leathers are European or British and conform to strict EU regulations, naturally tanned using vegetable tanning agents. Stitching is of the highest quality and weight. The hardware on the bags is sourced from the best engineering companies, zippers are from Switzerland and the Cobra buckles are forged in Austria, noted for being the worlds strongest buckle. The bags are hand made in England, using a level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that English luggage makers are known for.

We based the design of the bags on the metaphor of the Bedouin tent. A nomadic shelter, rugged and weatherproof on the outside, whereas inside they offer luxury, shelter and comfort. Our bags follow the same metaphor, rugged and durable on the outside, dust proof and water resistant. Inside, printed linings and padded compartments provide secure storage for your personal possessions.

Wild Things Now in Store

I first came across Wild Things in the mountain wear store Bamboo Shoots in Nakanmeguro, Tokyo. Wild Things had made Bamboo Shoots some colour ways exclusively for them. Very nice stuff, nice colours and quality. Very warm! Lots more in store!

Since then, our Light is right philosophy has become the gospel for modern climbers, and we remain true to that philosophy, always striving to keep our products simple, durable and functional.

Chrismas with Outlier

For Christmas I took a pair of Outlier Workwear pants & a Merino Hoody. The Merino Hoody is lovely, fits like a dream & is cut to perfection. Its too cold to wear it on its own so I will have to wait for Spring to get into the riding properties.
The Workwear pants are out of this world. Anyone who has any issues riding in their normal trousers should commit to a pair. They move with your legs on the bike, feel strong & well made. The best feature though is the fabric. Liquids just role off. You get these & you'll wonder how you live without. I also have the Merino T. I've had this since Summer. Its by far the nicest fitting & feeling T I won. So many fitted T's are so soft they wont last. This T is made from Merino so its weighty enough to be strong & warm yet the merino properties keep it breathable.

We've got the T's, trousers, tops & caps in stock now.


Fixed Athens

We've been sending stuff out to Athens for a long while now! The Greek love to ride their fixi's & now they've got a blog representing!


I saw a fully built, no expenses spared bike on eBay recently which really made me sick. It made me so sick I had a subconscious urge to start looking at really nice bikes. I thought the nice bikes deserved a post, I'll leave you guessing on the not so nice one.

After a short much needed Christmas break we're back to normal opening hours;

11:00 AM - 08:00 PM

Also our new website is now in the testing phase. It will be handed over to us sometime next week & we should see a mid January launch. The fact that we missed Christmas does of course annoy us but it was very important for us to integrate stock in the shop live with the stock on the website.

Whats up with the webshop???

Our web shop will be down for a little longer. It WILL NOT be down permanently!

We are currently testing a new system which will allow us to run our web shop in real time with our new shop front. This means that all stock available from our shop will be available online. This also means that customers will be able to view or stock levels & lead times.

Cheers for waiting.
