    I bought the Edge 30, women's small May 2013 and this backpack has stood up to the elements and more. I commute/travel by bike 6 days a week and my pack has seen its share of rain, dirt, and action.

    I change at work after commuting on my bike and I need my clothes to be dry when I get to the office. In San Francisco winter rainy months, not a drop of water gets into the main compartment. On lighter rain days, I don't always put down the rain cover and mostly everything still stays dry but if the cover is down, then I have yet to have small eletronics or wallet get wet in the front top flat pocket. The rain flap is great for visibility at night and of course, in the rain!

    I take my bag everywhere I go after work if I'm not going straight home and it has stood the abuse of being on the floor of public transit, bars, restaurants, and parks. The fabric is very sturdy and easy to wipe down.

    The long pocket that runs the length of the length between the two front pockets & main compartment is the perfect place to store my lock. I keep my gloves, ear warmers and tire levers in the bottom front pocket. My wallet and keys and other essentials go in the top front pocket, which is very easy to get to.

    The main compartment is big enough for a decent trip to the grocery store, and because the liner is waterproof... if anything spills or breaks inside, you can easily wipe it down clean. (yes, I've had to do this!)

    Don't be fooled that one-size fits all! I'm a small-framed 5'3" female and while I could find waterproof bags, finding a waterproof bag was always a challenge! The Edge 30 women's small is perfect for daily commute, an overnight bag, carry-on for the airplane or a trip to the grocery store. I rarely leave home without it... even when I'm not biking!

    I bought in orange, the Women's 30L a few months back.

    Great for wkend trips!
    Took it for a weekend tournament where I managed to pack a 1.5L Nalgene bottle, a pair of cleats, flipflops, tablet and 3 days worth of clothes. Bright yellow interior allowed me to search for my stash quickly. Very accessible compartmentalization. I love how the top zipper pocket can accommodate an A4 sized folder plus my tablet.

    Waterproof:
    I managed to test the bag's waterproof tolerance during a cycling trip to Taiwan along the east coast. Rain and mud got onto the pack and it was filthy for the entire ride. I checked my bag halfway and everything within was dry.
    I gave the bag a good wash at the end of the day using a hose and blast water onto it, with the rain cover down (ofcourse). Most of my clothes and electronics were still in the pack. Unveiled the rain cover and did a check again. All dry! The black material on the pack was really quick-drying as well so all was good by the next day for the ride again.

    I was hoping the rain cover could extend a little more to give more coverage of the bottom compartment sides. I stash quite a bit of stuff at the bottom pocket so it pops out and the rain cover cannot cover completely. Minor issue though, if you do not pack as much as me.

    I am 5 foot 5, 169cm. Adjustable harnesses and straps were at very strategic places and it was a super comfy fit.

    A very well-designed pack of which I got a few compliments already. I will definitely recommend Velotransit. The signatures gave it a really personal touch and I love it. Keep it up!

    To start, I got the Men's medium Edge 30 in black.

    Highly durable backpack- I ride a lot in the rain and even when I took a few spills and skidded on concrete, this pack took a beating and only came out with a few neglible tears that were easily patched using the following: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0045CQELI/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    The construction of all parts of the pack appear to be designed to bear heavy weight and endure long term, repetitive movements (e.g. durable zippers, straps that are not prone to fraying, etc)

    The pack absolutely met my needs in terms of it being water proof. The main roll top compartment is completely secure. What sold me was a youtube video of a guy waterskiing with this pack with a laptop in it. His laptop came out dry as a bone. Personally tested, I've used this to commute to and from work during torrential downpours and even when I didn't have a fender on the rear wheel!! The external pockets are not waterproof (except for the smallest pocket at the bottom which has loops for your lights) but if you use the rolltop, those pockets will be completely secure from water save for complete submersion.

    Beyond its durability, it's highly functional (and SUPER comfortable) as well. The narrow base allows me to peek behind myself and have an unobstructed view of traffic behind me. The back is reinforced with a lightweight square plastic plate so the pack retains its shape no matter how much gear you put in it. The waist and sternum straps keep the pack very secure to you so even on a bumpy ride or jerking around, the pack doesn't feel like it's jumping all over the place. The compression strap directly below the roll top keeps my things from jostling about even if I don't fully load the pack. My pack came with little vertical reflector strips that attached to the loops where your night blinkers would clip onto. I've used the optional front lashes for securing large boxes to the pack and I gotta say... this is probably one of my favorite features of this backpack.

    The ONLY thing that I would change would be the loops for the lights and this is purely my preference. I would have preferred them to be vertical so I could clip my lights upright and have them less likely to fall out. This is easily enough corrected though by putting a rubber band around the clip to prevent it from slipping off. I make sure to check the rubber band regularly though because the constant wet / drying off of the rubber band will make the rubber brittle.

    Altogether, this pack is absolutely awesome. I would *highly* recommed.

    This pack exceeded my expectations… I chose this pack to hold clothing and lunch for bicycle commuting. The size is perfect for the task. The pack fits perfectly and does not move about during my ride. The bright interior is beneficial. The two smaller exterior pockets are great for holding electronics and smaller items (wallet, keys, badge). The roll down bag design keeps the interior items dry; if you have not had experience with a roll down bag, I would expect it would not take long to become accustomed to it.
    Velo appears to have put a lot of design work into the bag, as well as manufacturing controls. My bag is well made and appears it will last me many years. With this excellent experience, I am considering Velo's panniers in the future. Enjoy!

    Thank you Paul at Velo Transit!!!!! Great backpack, fit and function is awesome. I have not had a change to test it in the rain yet. I have tested the yellow rain flap as a safety feature while riding into work. My co-worker state they can see me at great distances.
    Lots of room for your daily commute. I had no issues carrying clothing, and lunch for the Day, with room in other pockets/pouches for spare tools and tubes.

    I had my last cycling pack 20+ years and knew what I wanted in a pack. No zippers, waterproof, extra pockets, space for my U-lock, and comfortable. The Edge 30 had all of these features and more. Heaps of space for my daily commute into town, to hold a rain jacket, lunch, cell phone, wallet. I ride almost every day to work and I absolutely love the comfort of this pack. It's just the right length for my back and the shoulder straps are very comfortable. And I might just have the only Edge in Sweden... nice! Thanks Velo Transit.

    Thanks for spending time on the phone helping figure out the most appropriate bag - it was a gift so I had all sorts of questions. Came quick, responsive, thank you!!

    I've had at least a dozen backpacks over the years and I'd have to say I'm impressed both with the design and versatility of this thing. The pockets are perfectly arranged to carry a variety of things. The upper pockets I carry my droid tablet and kindle usually and the bottom pockets I stash my bike tools. I've put ice in this main compartment and used it as an impromptu beer cooler...no problem! I can easily fit two changes of clothes in this (pants not shorts) plus an extra pair of shoes and shaving stuff, bike tools, spare tube, a few books... I even do grocery runs with this
    It did take some fiddling with to get the strap adjustments right, but whatever I'm carrying certainly feels better on my back than any other backpack I've used...AND i can see over my shoulder in my helmet mirror! I wouldn't say that it's less sweaty on the back than any other pack i've used, but I think that overall I am definitely please with it.

    I owned my ReLoad messenger bag for nine years and it still shows very little wear. But I wanted a backpack and I didn't like theirs. So I searched online for over a year. No kidding. I studied every pack made. Tumi, Hammarhead Industries, Goruck.... It came down to my Edge 30 and I could not be happier. American made and waterproof. I'll have this for years and years.
