StarStarStarStarStar Excellent commuter bag

Ownership: one year
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high


I love this bag. It's completely waterproof and holds a substantial volume of material. It is also well balanced in that it actually feels lighter on my back when riding than its true weight. The shoulder straps are comfortable, as is the padding on the back.


The only con is really a hypothetical one at this point: whether the velcro closure will retain its "stickiness" with heavy usage. So far so good!

Other Thoughts

I'd buy it again. It's an excellent bag for the money.

StarStarStarStarStar Great "little" backpack

Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: average


Definitely water proof bag. I have ridden in a few down pours and everything in my pack stayed 100% dry.

Perfect size for minor loads (groceries).


Belt strap should be easily removable. I never needed it so I just cut it off.
