    Search on Craigslist for former commuters' bags.

    I scored a Ortlieb Velocity waterproof roll top bag for $50!

    Has ventilated back supports to keep air flowing down your back too.

    With that in mind, here's another couple for the OP to check out. The first is currently available, the second hasn't hit the market yet.

    Kona Project 2 backpack- built by Brenthaven, features a built-in light.

    Torch Flux backpack- has a built-in fiber optic light panel w/removable USB power supply. They have a youtube vid of it on their site if you want to navigate around to find it.

    And going back to snag the link for the Torch product, it appears they are now available- with a $60 price reduction.

    I really like it and it's useful for other things (rock climbing, light traveling, city shopping). It's seems very durable as well. That's a great price, I think I paid €90 at the local REI-equivalent.

    Let me know if you have any questions or want to see some photos.

    I am probably going to get the Osprey Metron:

    41547117.jpg
    it seems to have the best balance of function (a lot) and style (some?). I am tired of backpacks with a million straps hanging out everywhere; packs that are built for extreme ice climbing or some something. I prefer something simple, like the ortlieb velocity, but it looks like that would be too heavy, lead to a very sweaty back, and does not have the cell phone pocket on the front strap which seems very useful.

    This pack also fits a 17" laptop, which no others seem to mention. I just wish had a mesh back, and slightly cleaner lines.

    Looks like a smartly designed bag. I was considering the Especial Medio last week but it's bigger than I really need. I'm still using my Timbuk2 "Classic" messenger for daily town rides.

    Be sure to start a new thread with your initial impressions of the bag and possibly update it from time to time as a long term review. That will make easier for any of our members (or lurkers using Google) to find a non-commercialized review.

    Expensive, but will last forever, is extremely comfortable, carries a lifetime warranty and if you're willing to spend for the accessories the bag is very flexible for different uses. I used mine for carrying (2) laptops, as a carry on, camera gear, and grocery shopping.

    The only reason I stop using it for biking is because the bag can fit so much that it started to affect my center of gravity too much. I use to load it up with close to 15-20 pounds consistently.
    +1 for Tom Bihn bags. Stylish and very durable. Nearly impossible to destroy under most use conditions, and they keep their looks for a long, long time.

    yea it was between the medio and the tres, but I went with the tres because its expandable for when i need more room for food shopping and what not
