"Panels that follow the curve of your back (while letting in air to prevent sweat) a laptop sleeve, and a stowaway rainproof cover make for the ultimate cycle-to-work bag."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Backback I've had my original Rapha Backpack (white stripe) for 2 1/2 years now - this purchase was actually a present for my brother-in-law. It's been flawless over that time, serving as my everyday laptop bag, and on week-ends as the adventure travel bag. It's the perfect size for just about everything, and performs equally well as my carry-on bag when travelling. Not too many pockets, just enough space for everything. The expandable "shoe" section adds a great amount of extra space when needed, and the included rain cover has been put to use more often than I'd care to admit here in London. Wonderfully durable, understated, and versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great daily backpack I am thrilled with quality and style of this backpack. I bet people who conceived it are commuting daily. I love it and use it daily. I have two comments for Rapha to consider: - there should be a way to hide or disconnect waist belt, a feature often not needed in city commuting, it really hurts to cut it off from the new beatiful backpack; - product pictures on your site really suck in this backpack case... c'mon, I know you can do better than this! Show interior and pockets, do not make me dig through Google to find out how does it look inside!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Updates are appreciated, but why remove features? I owned the version of the backpack from two years ago, but zippers and stitching began to break. Rapha replaced the item fully, but with the updated version of the backpack. I appreciate the reinforced zippers and I still love the size and utility of the bag, but I just wonder why the removed a few features. First, I wish the white leather stripe was still an option versus the reflective material. It doesn't seem as stylish or luxurious as the previous. Also, the removed the small key pocket on the side of the bag which I used daily previously. All in all, a wonder product that is the perfect size for my daily commute and I will continue to buy Rapha packs in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best commuting bag in the world. In an attempt to keep my "MAMIL" body less offensive than it already is to the public I cycle to and from work. I do need to carry a plethora of work things from cloths, shoes, computer (and cables) pens and keys, the usual. I did find a curriers bag, which I thought was the gold standard. This has now yesterday's man. Radha has made this the case. This bag is now the gold standard. I thought the courier bag was going to be impossible to beat, I was wrong. The attention to detail, two external front pockets, the inner secure pockets for floatsome we all have to have but need, the back system, the ergonomic and easy use straps. Well done Rapha. This is the new boy on the block.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as it used to be. This is my third of these backpacks, I've had it replaced twice due to issues with the zips failing. The fact that it has been replaced with an apology has more than made up for the issue. The reason for the three star rating is mainly due to the fact that this latest version of the bag doesn't feel as well made as the previous versions. The key pocket which was one of my favourite features has been removed and the fabric has been replaced with a more basic material and the leather strip is no longer leather. It may be that these changes are improvements, time will tell, but my first impression was disappointment. All this aside it's still a great backpack. Just not as good as it was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essentials and Then Some Let me preface this with the fact that this buy came from a comparison of 25+ different backpacks - from Vancouver outdoors brands to Parisian boutiques. I had an exhaustive list of requirements that knocked most out of consideration. A compact, ergonomic, weatherproof, breathable bag that's actually attractive is harder to come by than you think. The bag market is apparently split down the middle. Either you have an ugly, gargantuan bag that can survive a natural disaster - or something you want to bring to the office and then leave at the office because it's raining outside. Rapha's backpack is a true outlier in this regard. It's made with consideration to the back of the rider - both keeping a streamlined profile but allowing airflow and venting. The design is rightfully minimal, but speaks volumes in its materials - Cordura and an integrated reflective weave. A thoughtful interior - both in the patterned lining, the surprisingly expansive storage space , the hidden hi-vis raincover. You can tell Rapha made a bag with full consideration towards what they really need for their day-to-day ride. Even better you can trust it can handle any scenario and confidence like that makes you want to ride even more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solid backpack When I bought this bag I was looking after a backpack which could be used commuting from home to work and bag 2 times a week covering 180 KM in total - the backpack is a good size where you apart from your laptop can fit in just the most important things as your cloth, musettes and shoes if you needed, but thats about it, which is fine with me. The 2 rooms at the front of the back is entered from each side, and is easy to get to if you are witnessing a puncture, need your wallet or keys which is nice. The quality seems nice but not outstandning as my other Rapha Classic or ProTeam garments, but Im well satisfied since the bag is good value for money - not expensive at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good internal pockets but bad external The inside pockets and layout is perfect, but the more regularly used two pockets on the front seem designed purely for asthetics. The zips are verticle, quite short and the material rigid, this makes getting things out of these pockets a big hand scratching mission. These pockets are the logical place for phone, keys and wallet, but design precludes the easy access their position should imply. One certainly has to take the bag fully off and tilt it on the side to access these pockets. Even then some force a zip scratches will ensue.
