Five of the Best Rucksacks for Cycle Commuting

Great commuter backpacks to help you carry your load...

Price £80

The most technical bag on test, the Osprey Momentum is stuffed full of thoughtful touches, handy pockets and useful features. The headline detail is the AirScape backpanel with foam ridges covered with a mesh panel – while I didn’t test this in the heat of summer it certainly kept me dry with a full load – but the details that stood out to me are the ergonomic zip pulls, the perfectly sized pockets, and the fact that every strap, zip and toggle is exactly to hand, just where you want it.

The Osprey Momentum is very comfy to ride with, it sits neatly and securely on your back, held in place by a chest strap and a waist strap. A 15” laptop sits inside a separate back compartment, and there’s also a zipped compartment for a tablet. The Momentum is topped off with a handy helmet attachment and a stowable high-visibility rain cover, complete with loop to attach a rear light to. For a regular commuter, you’ll not want much more – every possible need has been thought of.

Available in grey or orange from Osprey.
