The BEST backpack for cycling!

Posted07 June 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I needed one bag for my work & gym kit as I got tired of carrying two around. I also wanted it to be suitable for cycling.
This bag fulfilled all of the above and more criteria!
Let's do a quick review of the best bits:
1. Super comfy (+ many adjustment straps that can also be hidden away if not needed)
2. Smartphone + keys pocket on the main straps. No more fiddling to check I am following my GPS ; no more fiddling for keys
3. Different main compartments for laptop, documents and gym kit
4. LOADS of small pockets to order all my crazy stuff
5. D-lock and helmet straps
6. Room for Camelbak (where the main straps hide - unintentional but it works!)
7. ... I went for a triathlon in New Forest and this sweetie took ALL my gear and stuff for staying over, including sleeping bag!
Well worth the money.
Oh, and the yellowish colour rulez.

Perfect rucksack for commuting by bike

Posted16 July 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
This rucksack is perfect for commuting to work by bike. It has plenty of pockets which is very useful. I like the pockets in the shoulder straps, very useful for holding my work pass so I can easily access it without having to take off the rucksack to get through the security gate at work.
I usually pack my laptop (standard size), laptop power supply, work clothes, spare inner tube, tyre pump, lunch box and bulky bike lock. I still have room for a couple more items.
The quality of the rucksack is very good. Although I haven't been caught in a heavy downpour the bag looks like it would stay waterproof.

Lots of space.

Posted22 April 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: volume
This is an excellent product, the material and zips are very good.
There are lots of pockets to fit stuff in separate compartments, and very clever ideas (like the key ring).
There is plenty of space: I use this backpack to commute to work, and in some of my commutes I have to carry: a laptop, a suit, underwear, formal shoes (size 11), power supplier, documents, a towel. And still I could fit some more stuff. Also it's very modular: when you don't carry so many items, it doesn't look bulky (thanks to an expansion zip).
Your back could be sweaty after a while, but mine would be anyway.
If you wonder how you can fit a suit in your commute, buy this.

Great allround backpack

Posted27 December 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, adjustability
I use this backpack for everything; mountain biking, commuting, travelling (fits in cabin baggage even when full) and everyday load carrying. Holds water out pretty good even without the raincover. Lots of nice smaller pockets and adjustability is very good.
Backpanel could be shaped a bit better for breathability and comfort

Well built, great features

Posted05 October 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable
Cons: Unattractive
Been using this for at short commute for some weeks now.
The build is great, it's not going to break any time soon. The features are well thought out and usable, love the rain cover and the u-lock holder!
Comfort is good, the straps work as intended.
The only bad tings are the looks and the key strap which feels flimsy, but is easily replaced. These things don't account to much in the overall rating though.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
This is the most perfect bag that I ever had.
You should try it if you have more than a 7-hour walking one day.
Very good!

Best commuting pack on the market!

Posted02 October 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Some features are absolute genius, including the u-lock pocket, blinker attachment on rain cover, and especially the possibility of expansion - carries a huge amount of gear...!
2 things that could be better:
1) The hip strap is fine for biking, but when filled to capacity, the pack is a pain to carry without a hip belt off bike - found it rather difficult when expanded for airline travel etc...
2) The retractable key clip is not easily detachable and broke the second time i tried to take it off...
Regardless of the above, it knocks the socks off any other commuting pack i tried...
P.S. The pack does not come in black -- it is grey as a matter of fact...

Fits everything in

Posted05 June 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
This bag is great! I use it for work and it fits everything in with space for more. I am an engineer so the bag needed to fit a pair of overalls, smallish bag of tools, laptop (toughbook), note books and reporting pads and a water bottle as well standard kit/spares for the bike. Also extra to that I sometimes need to put a hard hat or safety harness in it and it still swallows it all. It has plenty of pockets and its comfy to wear. The bag gives me a bit of sweaty back after the commute but for my job it doesn't matter, so for me it prefect!
