Small Backpack£90.00

Please select an item above


Lightweight, ergonomic backpack for city road cycling

A woven, adjustable waist strap with a buckle to keep the pack secure as you ride - tuck the waist strap away behind the padded panels when not in use. The Small Backpack is a compact version of the popular Rapha Backpack. This lightweight bag has concealed pockets and removable padding for organizing your essentials.

Made from a water-resistant Cordura® fabric, padded panels are positioned to follow the curve of the rider’s spine for comfort and extra stability when riding. Inside the backpack, the storage compartments have been carefully considered so that your go-to belongings can be easily accessed. On the rear outer, a retroreflective stripe reflects light in multiple directions, for increased visibility.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Minimalism It's as compact as I could imagine for my commute necessities: a 15" laptop, glasses, wallet/phone and a change of clothes. It's rugged, lightweight and toned down looking enough to take into a professional meeting. I do wish it had a key clip built in. I had to improvise one by adding attaching a metal ring to the interior pump loops. The straps a like seatbelt material. I thought I'd miss padding, but actually these are working great. They keep the bag lighter and less bulky. The waist belt would be better if you could stow it away or remove somehow. It's fairly useful on the bike, but not great to have dangling down when off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small wasn't small Had to return because I was looking for a small backpack. This was more of a carry your things to work backpack and I was looking for a weekend pack to carry extra clothing. Quaility was great! Partly my fault for not checking measurements before ordering. The reason for only 4 stars is small should be small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect compact size with zipper that opens fully It's just the right size to carry a laptop and other important items to work. The zipper enables you to open the bag completely so there's no hunting for your keys or other items at the bottom of the bag.
