Lightweight, ergonomic backpack for city road cycling

An adjustable chest strap, with click-shut buckle, and a robust, woven adjustable waist strap keep the pack secure as you ride - tuck the waist strap away behind the padded panels when not in use. With its streamlined fit and ergonomic padding, the Rapha Backpack is a riding-specific solution for carrying your day-to-day essentials.

Updated this year featuring new materials, the Rapha Backpack has padded panels positioned to follow the curve of the rider’s spine, whilst chest and waist straps give extra stability when climbing, or when the pack is fully loaded. A retroreflective stripe reflects light in multiple directions for increased visibility, and a zipped compartment houses a high-visibility pink rain cover with reflective Rapha logo.

Please note: Gift wrap is not available on this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best travel and urban backback design Practical and compact size, great variety of pockets, sits well on the back without sticking out too much. Doubles in volume if needed. Extremely happy with it. Negative: the black colour is something between proper black and very dark navy which is quite dull and looks rather dusty/dirty in sunlight. Proper black and/or more lively colour variety would be good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect backpack for my needs I wanted a backpack that was ideal for work to hold a 15" laptop, my lunch, umbrella (when needed), some documents (again when needed) and convenient compartments for phone and glasses. Being for work, I wanted something that didn't look like a sports backpack i.e. no blocks of multi-colour, unnecessary straps (waist, chest & compression), unstructured shape (which can bend documents) and no side bottle holders or loops for hooking on things! But at the same time, I didn't want a boring typical laptop bag (i.e. lack of style!). Hence, I turned to Rapha. The Rapha Backpack fit my needs perfectly: - removable chest strap and tuck-away waist strap gives the bag a clean look without excessive "tails" hanging about - simple single colour with a simple elegant stripe running down the front gives it a sophisticated styling - clean and structured rectangular shape that holds contents well including ability to keep documents straight. No "bits" sticking out like bottle holders, hook straps and other unnecessary sports bag features ... but at the same time doesn't give it the nerdy old school kids backpack look or the typical laptop bag. - two convenient front access pockets to keep my phone and reading glasses (my sunglasses goes in the dedicated pocket inside the backpack) - zippers zip around 3/4 of the bag allowing the maximum opening makes packing laptop and contents easy but at the same time, zippers are not too loose that there are any risk it may undo by itself Although I don't use it for commuting or on the bike (yet anyway), the backpack is very comfortable and I can see how it will be well suited for the bike. Soft and just enough padding shoulder straps. Supportive panels holds the backpack well against your back both walking and hunch such as when riding. If I had to point out one suggestion for improvement, it may be to provide a little more organisation pockets/compartments inside the bag. There's really just one main zipper compartment to put the loose bits in. Finally, I wanted to point out that this backpack has the same dimension as the "Small Backpack". As I didn't want a large backpack, I was originally thinking about small backpack fearing the "Backpack" would had been too big. I believe the small backpack would be lighter but I didn't find the Backpack itself heavy at all. It is very light compared to other 15" laptop backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday Essential I have been using this bag everyday for the past few weeks. Blinding bit of kit. Small, light, yet big enough for my gym towel, shirt, underwear, size 11 shoes (in expander pocket), lunch and phone/wallet/keys etc. Very well made. Big bonus for me is that the chest strap is detachable and you can tuck the waist strap behind the lower pads (I'm not a fan of body straps). The hidden rain cover is also a nice touch and it works fantastically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag, looks small but fits helmet and shoes! Happy with it, solid understated build and am suppose to see it fits the shoes and the helmet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid pack Solid pack with useful cycling-specific and well thought features (pump holder, shoes compartment, sunglasses pocket, expandable to hold more clothes...). Great looks on and off the bike! The interior is especially nice. Zips are tight and easy to handle. Front pockets are easily reacheable and will hold phone and keys for one, and small chain-lock for the other (or small repair kit). Quite heavy but that disappears when on the shoulders. I have another pack which is lighter but has only one compartment and less padding. Carrying on one shoulder is uncomfortable due to the lowered strap. Would be perfect if the lower straps could be removed or tucked away. The computer compartment is too big (although acts as a nice divider) and the strap is imo not necessary. A u-lock holder would be great! Front pocket won't fit a standard Kryptonite Mini 5. Would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Bought this backpack for a gift and recipient was extremely pleased with this. Perfect size for commuting and provides enough space for items without having to pack the bag till its bursting like other non- Rapha backpacks. Great compartment for laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the size and "extra" space I bought this to replace my Rapha backpack which was sadly stolen. This is a much newer version but I personally love the slightly bigger size (expandable segment) which has proved very useful when travelling. I also love the features my old bag didn't have - integrated cover, 2 useful front pockets. I've yet to use it riding (it's my everyday laptop bag) but I'm certain it will be as comfortable as my old one. Overall the quality is superb and I'm looking forward to many years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome backpack Got this for commuting. It's the exact right size for a large MacBook Pro + some clothes. The chest and waist straps keep it tight, even when out of the saddle. Tons of pockets and compartments. It's really solid.
