    I bought one of these three years ago and have been thrashing it around Melbourne every day since- not that you can tell! The bag still looks great and is as comfy as ever. I've taken it on trips overseas, out on boats, and to the beach and it just keeps going.

    I actually found one in black in the LES a couple years ago. My partner really wanted one for a long time. So I gave it to her. But, after I saw her use it all the time. I used it and fell in love with it. I was amazed at how much I could fit in the bag and how agile and mobile I could be while riding my bike. I was always into backpacks but this bag changed that. I think if you don't need to carry a laptop or need pockets then this is the bag to go with. Excellent for biking and traveling or spending time at the park. I use this mostly to bike to work and carry some stuff like a sweater, books and such. I love this bag in many ways. I encourage you to get this one.

    i love this bag it was great for school when i didn't need to carry around my laptop. alot more room than you would think. i could fit 2 binders and 3 regular sized school books and a water bottle in this. very fitting and low profile also. if you want a bag that wont get in your way this is it.

    The great design of this backpack is difficult to capture with pictures, so order one, see it in person, and you will not be disappointed. I commute by bicycle, and this is the greatest backpack I have ever owned. It would be very difficult for me to go back to a traditional style backpack. This pack is not only comfortable, but it will not move around or slip like a traditional backpack can do while bicycling. It also allows for a greater range of motion in the shoulders/upper arms, which makes for not only a more comfortable bicycle ride, but a safer one too. My hands can move much more freely on the handlebars, which makes it much easier to grab the brake levers in panic stop situations. Thank You!
