4 of the Best Women’s Rucksacks for Commuting by Bike

4 of the best backpacks on the market are put through their paces

The quirkiest bag on test, Goodordering’s Market Shopper (£55) is also the most versatile – it’s a backpack, a shopper and a pannier in one. Goodordering’s Market Shopper has rucksack straps, large handles and hooks to attach it to your pannier rack. It has space inside for a 15” laptop in a protective sleeve and a further zipped pocket inside, plus three good sized pockets on the outside.

The Market Shopper is made of water-resistant nylon with hard-wearing PVC trim and a natty pinstripe lining. Due to its boxy nature it’s great at keeping everything organised inside.

Padded straps means it sits comfortably on your back but beware, the boxy design does mean it sits quite high, so it can restrict your view a little when looking over your shoulder.

The Market Shopper is supplied with a drawstring nylon bag – if it looks like heavy rain, the idea is to put anything you want to keep dry in that, then put the whole thing inside the Shopper. While that may be a faff if you’re caught in an unexpected shower, it certainly works.

RRP: £55
Size: 15l
Available in Forest green, Rust, Chestnut brown, Maroon.
