Road Runner Bags

I know there are tons of backpack posts already but I was wondering if anyone on here owns a Road Runner backpack, and what you think of it. There's not many reviews out there. I was mainly looking at this backpack. Road Runner Bags Before that I was pretty set on a Mission Workshop Rambler but $260 is a lot for a backpack. I would mainly use it for commute for work (extra clothes, u-lock, tools, lunch) but also would like to be able to take it grocery shopping. Or throw some beers and ice in it during the summer.

Yes I've been looking at Mission Workshop extensively. Kept going back and forth between the Rambler, Fitzroy and Rummy. I ended up getting a new Chrome Ivan that for $75 on Ebay which is quite a steal. Hopefully it's not too big though!

Never heard of them before, but I really like their Evil Mini. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
