Kriega packs. Not cheap but neither is a MacBook. Designed for use on a motorbike and comfortable to wear. Come in the right size as well.

I agree with @S-Westerly on this one, Kriega are great bags!
Ride safe everyone, hope to see you all out there!

I've got a Kreiga rucksack and its great, but riding any distance with a rucksack on its crippling for your back.

I think a lot depends on your position on the bike which in turn depends on the ergonomics of the bike. I can ride 500 miles and for 7-8 hours wearing a rucksack without feeling any pain. Should say I don't have anything heavy in it though. Heavy stuff I put in a roll bag on the back.

If it has a macbook in it you probably primarily want a properly waterproof thing like this no? Lomo Dry Bag Walking Roll Top Rucksack 40L https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00E8JFS9W/ ... nDbD0MDMFN

If it breaks amazon will replace it.

Or try Lomo directly, seems to be cheaper.

There is also a Motorcycle range.

I’ve just had a look at Kreiga, this seems to be exactly what I’m looking for. Cheers @S-Westerly .

I only do about 50mile each way most mornings, and will be using the bike on nicer days. I don’t even get much traffic but it’s a good excuse Hahaa.

Was getting worried these weren't going to be mentioned!

I bought a Kreiga bag on a whim before two weeks in France on the bike. One of the BEST things I've ever bought for biking.

Has a inner waterproof bag (Great for the unpredictable weather), designated pouch to put in a water bladder if you want (which on the hotter days is Sooo nice :love: ) and so comfy, even for long periods of time which I've really struggled with in the past.

Massively happy with mine, So worth the extra cost.

Edit:
This was the one I bought.
But they have a good range.
