Five of the Best Rucksacks for Cycle Commuting

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

Price £70

The second largest capacity backpack on test, the Ogio Soho is a smart number that goes someway to combining the functionality of the Osprey bag with the style of the Brooks and the playfulness of the Good Ordering. It’s got a good selection of compartments – for up to a 17” laptop, plus tablet, books/files, pens and make up – handily identified with little icons, and a fully padded base for bump protection.

Despite all the pockets and compartments, it’s missing a hook for your keys and doesn’t have a loop to attach a light to, but the Ogio Soho sits well on your back and has a padded back panel for comfort. Unexpectedly, I avoided the rain while testing this so threw a couple of glasses of water over it, and the water beaded on the surface and quickly ran off. Not conclusive waterproofing, but certainly encouraging. The Soho felt a little more cumbersome and not as sleek as the others on test – but if it’s more space you need, then this is the one.

Available in terra (red) and tide (teal) from Madison.
