This bicycle courier backpack carries the heavy, the awkwardly shaped and the diverse. With a slight trapezoidal shape and a streamlined design, it keeps the loads of a bike commute close to your back to preserve your dynamic mobility. The main compartment accommodates lunch, books and extra clothes. A padded sleeve, raised above the bottom of the backpack, holds and protects a 17” laptop. Interior pockets include a drop-in for a wallet and gym pass, a mesh pocket to hold your keys, a padded electronics pocket for your phone and three slots for pens. Two exterior mesh pockets hold water bottles, and lash points secure a U-lock and/or bike light. The reflective panel in the middle of the pack keeps you visible for dawn and dusk treks. Other features include a molded back panel to keep you cool, shoulder straps with mesh padding to move moisture and a waistband to secure the load. Made of 8.4-oz 600-denier 100% recycled polyester with a slick 3.3-oz 200-denier polyester lining. Both have a polyurethane coating.

Made in Vietnam.
In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
