backpack essentials for bike commuting

If you’re a regular bicycle commuter, then you know that hauling your gear from place to place can be a challenge. Whether you use your bike to commute to work daily, go to class or the office, or run errands, you need a sturdy and comfortable backpack. So, what is the best bike commuter backpack?

First, Consider These Tips Before Making Your Choice

  • Comfort is Key - Whatever bike commuter backpack you buy, make sure that the harness and straps are comfortable when the bag is loaded. Look for a tech-friendly backpack with a proven all-day comfortable design. Also, look at other features that fit your needs best like a waterproof design so that rain doesn’t hold you back.
  • Consider What You’ll Be Carrying - If you’ll be carrying a lot of stuff, you’ll need a roomy backpack. If not, something small will do. For instance, if you’re a daily commuter who needs enough room for a laptop, a change of clothes, lunch, and a few accessories like power adapters, the best bike commuter backpack might have padded sleeves to keep your laptop safe and enough room for the rest of your stuff.
