Best cycling backpack ever!!
Here in Vancouver it rains a lot, and it rains frequently. As a bicycle commuter, I wanted to be prepared for any kind of weather, and I want to be able to have enough room to do my shopping, commuting, etc., and I want it to look good (i'm vain).
The Navigator 30 is amazing. It isn't big on your back until you need it to be. The side cinch straps open up, and the top flap extends. It can hold a little and a lot.
I never need to worry about my computer, cellphone, other electronics, clothes, etc. It's totally waterproof.
Over the years, I have had packs from Chrome, Timbuktu, REI and others, looking for the right features. I wanted a pack that I could use year-round.
I added on a mesh side pocket, a hip belt pocket, a drink holder side pocket, and a cell phone pocket on the shoulder strap. I also ordered the padded computer sleeve that velcros into the inner compartment (perfect size for my Surface Pro) I love how I can attach accessories that I need and change them out.
It's a little heavy -- all of those features add weight, but the flexibility is worth it.
The best all around cycle commuter backpack!
