Review: Wee Cog Grip Phone Case and Muddy Saddlebag

I'm a big fan of small-scale handmade products; they have a certain unique and individual feel to them. More often than not, they also have a unique quality level; because their creator has been carrying out constant quality-control throughout their manufacture.

The Grip Phone Wallet and Muddy Saddlebag, from Scotland based brand Wee Cog, are a great example; products that are handmade by Becky (the founder and sole employee of Wee Cog), at home in The Highlands.


The Wee Cog Grip Phone Case

First up, the Wee Cog Grip Phone Wallet. This neat little sleeve is made from durable Cordura fabric; with a touch-screen friendly clear plastic window. Available to order in a variety of colours and phone sizes, you can personalise it to match your kit. The strong Velcro closure flap secures the phone, and also covers a useful little outer sleeve, which is great for cards and cash.

I've been using the Wee Cog Grip Phone Case for about a month now, on my daily commute. It has offered great protection; both from knocks and bumps, and from the elements. It has a super durable feel to it, and I love the handmade quality touch. Miles better than a plastic freezer bag.
The clear plastic window on the Wee Cog Phone Case works well with touchscreen smartphones

A secure Velcro flap seals the phone in the pouch on the Grip Phone Case



The Wee Cog Waxed Cotton Muddy Saddlebag

The Wee Cog Muddy Saddlebag is another handmade, durable accessory. Designed to fit a 29er tube, tyre levers, CO2 canisters and a tool; it should save you the need of carrying a pack, for light XC riding.

The version I have, is made of a beautiful waxed cotton; which is both water resistant and seriously durable. It mounts up to the seat post and saddle rails with smart adjustable straps, and it has shown no sign of shaking loose during testing.

A great little bag for a cyclocross bike or mountain bike!

I love the waxed cotton fabric on the Wee Cog Muddy Saddlebag

Well made, and well secure - nice finishing touches on the Muddy Saddlebag
