Backpack large enough for...

Post by LennyGibson » Fri Jun 12, 2020 9:53 am

In september i will start commuting to school on motorcycle. I need a waterproof backpack that will fit a lever arch folder of dimensions: 345mm x 285mm x 80mm.
I am comfortable with a satchel or backpack as long as it is waterproof and large enough.
Thank you :D

Not cool but a top box (£40 ebay) and regular rucksack?

Now I have a top box I realise how much better than a rucksack it is, for me at least.
If you want waterproof Alpkit are a good brand.

As Onesea said, a top box all the way.

I've got one on my 125 just for shoving my uni bag in. It's not glamorous but it does the job perfectly, gets the weight off your back and keeps your stuff dry.

Ive got this...doubles up as a backpack. I love it. It opens up big enough to fit a helmet in. Plus i think it looks better than a top box on a sports bike.
