I know there have been more than a few threads started about messenger bags, backpacks, panniers, rear racks, for taking your "stuff" with you on your commute to work. I own my fair share of backpacks, saddle bags, and a porteur bag for my front rack. Anyway, what's the best backpack in your opinion to commute with based off size, features, etc?
I would suggest anyone looking for a new backpack to check out www.velotransit.com. I just happened to come across their website on a bike blog which led me to do some research on them. I have to say the bag I was interested in had a lot to offer, especially to someone that commutes a few times a week in the rainy northwest (hasn't been raining as of late though). The pics on the website only do so much. I was on a trip to Seattle a couple weeks ago and I had the opportunity to check the bags out in person. The guy that owns it is a stand up guy. I talked to him, he dialed me in on the right size because he believes in his product. I knew I was going to buy one regardless but just the experience while I was there just sold it even more for me. In short, check the bags out and the video also posted on the website. I really wish Paul and Bobby the best because they are genuine nice people with a great product.
