As the weather warms up, and we move into June, all thoughts turn to the wonderful festival season. The UK plays host to numerous different events, from weekend long music festivals such as Reading and Download, to more family friendly affairs such as Camp Bestival, it’s safe to say there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re camping or simply going for the day, one thing is certain – you’re going to need your hands free for eating, drinking and waving in the air, so a good bag is a must. Here at Scaramanga we’ve got a fantastic selection of vintage and retro style saddlebags and messenger bags that are ideal for festival goers, so if you’re looking for something stylish but practical, read on for our five favourites.
