Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right. I already have the Rapha rucksack and a smaller pack seemed like a good idea. I was right. The size is just right for when I have less things to carry. It's still the size of a regular backpack just less depth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Backpack that 'packs' a punch! Wasn't expecting this backpack to be so versatile. Intended to use for a backpack when on holiday or short cycling trips. It can actually hold a lot of stuff and comes with a sexy hi-vis (PINK!!) rain cover stored underneath. It was never meant to be my commuting bag but now rivals my larger current one! The straps and back padding are comfortable and when riding it is tight to the body and doesn't bob up and down. Would recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size I bought this a few months ago and I'm very happy with it. The backpack is just the size I wanted. I'm able to snuggly store my laptop away in a decimated compartment and still have room for some essentials - clothes and a towel, for example. It is also very comfortable to wear, even in hot weather and the rain cover is neat (it will hold off a shower without it). It's been highly durable so far and has excellent build quality. I ride all year round and do around 30-40 miles on my daily commute if that is any sort of guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack! I bought this backpack for my commute and find it perfect to fit my laptop and my books/other items in. The stowaway reflective cover is great and all the pockets on the inside are very well designed to fit smaller items. It's sturdy and another very well designed rapha product. I am so pleased with mine and would not hesitate to reccomend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last, the perfect commuting backpack. If, like me, you commute to work on your bike you've probably suffered the same issues that I have in regards to trying to find the 'perfect' backpack. I've tried a few, and they've all failed to deliver on at least one issue, too big, not big enough, not comfortable enough..... too many to list. I tend to tackle my commuting in a relatively smart way, leaving a shower towel, toiletries, shoes and trousers at my office and taking a batch of clean shirts on the days that I drive. As result, I can travel pretty light when I commute, typically only needing to carry my laptop or tablet, clean underwear, a lightweight rain jacket, and not a lot else. As soon as I started to pack my essentials in to this product I knew it would be perfect for me. For a start you can lay the backpack down on its bag and unzip the entire front like a lid. This sounds simple, but it makes it super easy to pack and unpack. The size is spot on for my commuting habbits, but it's also big enough for those days that I need to carry a little extra, and it was easy to pack items safety and securely so they don't rattle around. The rain cover is a smart feature, as is the sunglasses pouch in the main compartment (although I must admit I use that for my wallet and mobile phone). The fit is very comfortable, the straps are good and it fits so well that I've actually cut the waistband strap off my backpack, as I found that it was a redundant feature for me as it sits securely enough without it (don't try this unless you're 100% sure, once they're gone they're gone). All-in-all, a great product. And now I wonder why I didn't buy one sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size Perfect size for small commuting needs. The laptop maybe too small for bulk laptops but is all right for most.

Will a helmet fit into either this bag or the bigger version?

Asked by: RussB
Hi a helmet would not fit comfortably into this bag. It will fit into the Backpack and Rucksack. The Rucksack also has helmet loops to attach the helmet to the front of the bag. I hope that helps.

Does this small backpack comes with shoes compartment? and do u recommend this or the backpack if i plan to get a backpack for a one day bike trip?

Asked by: f8endofdiscussion
Hi, there is no shoe compartment in the Small Backpack. It is a great bag for city commuting but if you are doing a long one day bike trip then we would recommend you choose the Rapha Backpack.

The product details mentioned it could fit up to a 15 inch laptop. Yet, one of the answer to the question said that it will not be able to carry a 15 inch macbook pro. Any way you could enlighten me?

Asked by: richardy
Hi, the Small Backpack will fit a 15" laptop. However, it will not fit if the laptop is in a case and if you would like slightly more room, we would recommend the Backpack or Rucksack.

How does this compare size and feature wise to the original Rapha "Fixed" backpack? Had one for years and love it but am looking for a replacement. Trying to figure out the sizing and capacity.

Asked by: robgnyc
Hi, I'm glad you enjoyed your original backpack. The capacity of the small backpack is 15L and the fixed backpack capacity was 18L.
