Selected Reviews


Road CC

Almost the ultimate commuting rucksack - comfy on the bike and extremely well-organised - our only niggle is the lack of reflective detailing.

Bike Radar

Comfortable even when filled to bursting, and the price is impressive for such a great quality piece of kit.

Road CC

Capable, large, commuter backpack… although you might need to be careful of it in rain.
