Five of the Best Rucksacks for Cycle Commuting

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

Price £24.29

I had to check then double check the price of this dhb Slice rucksack – at £25 it’s got a staggering amount of features and thoughtful additions that puts it on a par with the Osprey Momentum. It has a high-vis stowable rain cover, mesh and a stiff foam harness to keep it off your back, two very handy pockets on the removable hip belt, easy-to-use-with-gloves zip pulls, a fleece-lined valuables pocket and a light loop.

Where it falls down against, say, the Osprey, is the fit and finish. While it’s the biggest on test it’s also narrow across your back, and my 15” laptop is a squeeze to fit in (plus there’s no particular padding for it). The Slice is quite long so I found it a bit tricky to get the fit of it right on my back, and the fabric, while hardwearing, feels plasticky compared to some of the others. But, considering the price (£25!), these are mere quibbles – for the cash, this is a brilliant bag.

Available in black from Wiggle.
