    This is a very early initial review. My Black Edge 30 arrived on Thursday. I typically only commute to work every other day because it's 42 miles round trip and I'm not the young buck I used to be. I had ridden on Thursday so Friday should have been on off day. With the pack arriving I figured I needed to get a test ride in to I cheated and did my bike/light rail/bike route both ways which shrinks it down to 25 miles round trip.

    Initial observations are that it is a fantastically comfortable pack. I had it loaded up pretty good with my u-lock, iPad, 3/4# blue tooth speaker, tools and extra layers as well as the hip pack I typically wore with my previous pack because it didn't have a lot of organization options. Pack performed spectacularly. No unwanted movement and extremely comfortable.

    I'm very pleased so far and may provide a more thorough review after I get a few more miles on it.

    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.

    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.
