Very good commuting and bike rucksack

PostedSeptember 27, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Rucksack used for general bike trips - shopping and leisure riding. Also used for commuting to work. Comfortable and system separating bag from back is well made and useful. 15l bag is fine for my purposes. No complaints.

Brilliant backpack for cycling and walking

PostedMarch 23, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I bought this backpack to take mountain biking and hiking, both of which I do regularly. This backpack is a good size, fits in everything I need for a day out and feels well made and sturdy.
It has a sturdy mesh back to allow air circulation and reduce sweating, a handy helmet attachment externally and side mesh pockets for water bottles. The smaller middle pocket is good for keys, money and other bits and bobs and the larger two for lunch, spare parts and tools with added elasticated compartments in each.
It hugs the body well, has useful straps for added stability needed for longer walks and trail riding and has a pull-out high-vis shower proof cover stored in a compartment underneath.
I haven't bought a bladder for it but one can be easily inserted and the water outlet is labelled on the top of the bag.
I really like the sleek, simple design of this bag, nothing too fussy and nice and bright in red.

An excellent bag for cycling and walking!!

PostedAugust 18, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
This is a great bag!
I was looking for a new bag since I got into cycling and did my research to find a bag that was comfortable for cycling, but most importantly didn't make my back sweat! The mesh keeps the main section of the bag off of my bag, keeping me nice and cool. I did try a pannier rack for a while but i didn't like the weight imbalance and to be honest it just didn't feel right on a road bike.
There are several different pockets of varying sizes, which is useful for a day trip out on the bike or for more serious journeys. Theres also a really useful waterproof cover which is bright yellow and includes an attachment to clip your light onto.
The helmet holder (which sits on the outside of the bag) is really useful because it doesn't take up any space inside the bag.
Altogether this is a great bag and has become my everyday bag for cycling and train journeys.

Well made and comfortable small backpack

PostedMarch 6, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive
The pack seems well designed, very comfortable and meets my need for a bag to carry my office shirt & trousers, lunch and repair kit on my daily commute. At 15l it's just big enough. The clip that holds your helmet on the pack is quite handy. It was more than I expected to pay, so I'm hoping that it lasts - the quality seems good, but only time will tell. I'm satisfied so far.

Seems perfect for the job.

PostedApril 10, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: reservoir not included.
My first hydration pack, I have used it with the two litre reservoir (shame I had to buy that as an extra) for one bike ride but also for a week skiing. For both it was fine with enough room for the extra clothes, tools etc and the bite valve works well. Good for skiing because it doesn't have too many straps at the back and sides which can catch on lifts. I was a bit nervous about carrying two extra kilos but found it very comfortable and hardly noticeable when worn - its also the first time I've had a pack with an "aerated" back system and it worked very well without overheating my back. The magnet for the valve was faultless when biking and a great idea but did tend to come off on big bumps when skiing. Overall, I'm very pleased with it.
