Large, quality backpack...any suggestions?

Post by APR » Mon Jul 22, 2019 5:48 pm

Hi everyone, hoping for some advice. I’m trying to find a 35/40l backpack that could comfortably fit all the things I’d need if I use the bike for work. 15” MacBook, change of clothes, lunch etc etc PLUS a pair of steel toe boots as I vary between office and sites. I’ve found a few but they seem to be aimed at the American market, although I do like the look of the Velomacchi 40l rolltop:

I like to see and check things before I buy and I’d rather buy once, and use it for years to come instead of buy cheap and buy twice, or even more times. Anyone else have any suggestions or recommendations?

Thanks in advance

I'd suggest getting yourself down to your local army surplus and get yourself an army burghan or something similar as that would be the only way you would easily get all your gear in a rucksack
Its better when its loaded

That’s a really good idea, cheers. Wouldn’t cost me almost £300 too Hahaa!! Not sure any still exist in Cardiff anymore. There used to be a few but as always, the High streets have died :crybaby:

Is that the brand? I’ll have a browse online now. I like the burghan idea though. Won’t get much bigger and tougher than what the army use :D

Back to the drawing board then? I mean, I’m happy to for quality. The last thing I want is my MacBook falling onto the M4 when I’m plodding along at 70 :wink:

@Bender

I’m struggling to find one built for riding for some reason. Plenty in the States
