5 liter cycle bag

ok hi , could anyone help me find a 5 liter backpack with shoulder straps under 20 bucks , i have seen one on amazon for 17 , and an 8l bag for 80 bucks from daylite or something like that , im thinking its the only 5l bag around that has regular straps .

i personally am stuck in my ways, maybe you can help me see a new way . i don't want to carry a saddle bag for my road repair kit , and i don't like water bottle cages on my bike frame , i carry a 10l bag now on my back , i feel its the best aero option , i take one water bottle and my phone in a front zipper pouch .

my kit is one or two tube
small park chain tool
about 8 inch pump
allen key tool
tire lever and flat kit
one gel

that's about all i carry , i thought about going to co2 , but i dunno it seems i could get stuck with no way to pump it up ya knoe ??

but anyone if anyone knows of a nice backpack that's super small but can fit a simple kit and my water bottle into i would appreciate you linking me up , thanks and bye ...

this seems to be the only legit 5l pack on amazon , thats under 20 bucks if anyone was interested

something like this but i dont like the clip on straps my not be comfy and might get annoying

I'd think that much water on your back would cause a lot of back pain or discomfort. I have a 2 liter hydration pack and it is heavy enough when I'm starting my ride. 10 liters seems like overkill unless you're riding across a desert or something. I prefer two 24 oz bottles and my hydration pack if needed, and then refilling the bottles if there's a place to get water.

What's wrong with the one on Amazon? It looks nice. The best place to see lots of packs is R.E.I. In Cranston. They might be over your budget though. There used to be an Easter Mountain sports up in Emerald Mall. Near or in Attleboro. Also possible over your budget. Try Target in Seekonk for lower prices.
