COMMUTER BACKPACKS (waterproof) - Messenger bags are great, but with two straps to distribute the load, a backpack is often a more comfortable option for longer rides or heavier loads. Unfortunately your options have either been student backpacks that leak like a sieve, sit up too high, or cost a fortune. We designed our backpack with a full welded waterproof liner that is removable and replaceable if it is punctured.
Offered in two sizes - Large with a capacity of 2,000 cubic inches and medium that holds 1,500 cubic inches of your stuff.
Waterproof 2-layer design: outer ballistic nylon layer wears like iron; replaceable waterproof liner keeps contents dry in a downpour (will not keep water out if submerged, in case underwater-riding is your hobby). Wide padded straps distribute load more evenly than messenger bags. Sits lower on the back than standard backpacks to reduce blind spots while riding. Chest strap and removable waist strap for stability. Large reflective stripes and tab for safety light. Quick-access side pocket.
We've added a small (1,100 cubic inches) backpack. It's similar to the waterproof commuter packs, but which offers a little more organization. The Metro backpack is built with the same attention to detail and value as our waterproof gear, but instead of a big ‘ol waterproof cavern, it uses the same hanging liner system as messenger bags, which makes it “functionally” waterproof since there are no seams to the outside. The Metro has a ton more “organizational ability”. Twelve interior and exterior pockets, a padded laptop sleeve, exterior cinch straps, and more.
The Metro backpack is available in black and white and features 18 oz. vinyl tarp material (for easier cleaning), full width wicking back pad, 12 interior & exterior pockets, padded laptop pocket (fits up to 10" X 15" notebooks), cell phone holster and front & rear reflective tape and webbing tab for safety.
