A reflective, extremely visible backpack for daily essentials

The Small Reflective Backpack is a compact and updated version of the popular Rapha Small Backpack. Made from a water-resistant, retroreflective fabric this lightweight bag has robust straps and five padded panels that are positioned to follow the curve of your spine when riding, for comfort and stability. With a robust, woven adjustable waist strap to keep the pack secure as you ride - tuck the waist strap away behind the padded panels when not in use.

Carefully considered compartments, concealed pockets and a laptop sleeve provide ample storage. Reflective zip pullers and a high-vis rain cover are visible accessories for commuters. New for 2016 is the retroreflective paneling on the front and sides of the backpack, giving 360º visibility in low light.


  • Retroreflective panelling on sides and front for all-round visibility
  • Water-resistant fabric for wet weather riding
  • Ergonomic spine padding for maximum comfort on the bike
  • Adjustable waist strap for a secure riding position - tuck away strap when not in use
  • Padded laptop compartment (15” max)
  • Internal glasses pouch
  • Front zip pocket for smaller items
  • Reflective central stripe for high visibility
  • Hi-vis rain cover and compartment for foul weather riding
  • Light loop to secure rear light on the pack


  • 100% nylon, with retroreflective glass bead coating


  • Wipe with a damp cloth
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Do not bleach

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact Powerhouse There's a lot of positive things going on for this little pack. Aside from the massive real estate of reflective surface, it offers a great deal practical convenience and tasteful design. If packed neatly the main storage area is large enough to stow a change of clothes, hand pump, flat kit and a water bottle/spill-proof-coffee tumbler. The internal pocket is slim, yet large enough to hold a wallet, bike tool, pen, pocket knife and other miscellaneous items. There's even a nifty compartment above the zipped compartment for eye wear. The outer zip pocket is deep enough to hold any items that's needed on the fly, such as keys or gels. There's also a compartment for a rain cover. On this hi viz model, the rain cover is reflective pink with a dark stripe in the center. As far as comfort goes, I'm actually surprised how the minimalist seat belt straps are comfortable during my commute. Zero side to side play and just stays put. The adjustment buckles are very easy to adjust and same goes with the waist strap. Over all, this lightweight pack is ideal for the daily commuter while maintaining a high level of visibility without looking like a road guard on a street corner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack This bag is big enough for a laptop and is very visible being reflective. Only used a few times for 25 mile each way commute and its comfy and stable on my bike. Very impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice little bag the reviews are pretty much spot on. It's small - mcbook pro 13" + chinos and not much more. very reflective. Stylish? yes, but not really to take into formal meetings. the straps do cut into shoulders a bit but not really an issue. chest strap is missing here. I have a 20 litres motorbike rucksack and because of the chest strap it actually feels lighter than this mini. Would I buy it again? yes, to be used for low light rides when I don't need to carry many things to work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slim and compact, thoughtful design Have been using the bag for 3 weeks now and am vet happy with it. The size is ideal for my use. I pack a change of clothes, some tools, small pump and water. Was excited to discover that the small pack also included the rain cover and a waist strap that weren't listed on the website specs. Pleasant surprise. Some users have mentioned that they are not fans of the shoulder straps. I can see their point as they are like a seat belt strap. I've found myself liking them though as they are slim, strong and not bulky (because they lack padding). My previous bags straps' padding would always make me feel overheated particularly in the summer. Other pluses are that the bag's zipper opens all the way to the bottom of the bag allowing the user to access the bottom of the bag without having to open the bag all the way or rummaging from the top down. The reflectivity is quite bright as well. The issues I've found are that the main zipper is quite stiff so it often requires me to use both hands to open and close it, not as effortless as it should be especially when on a bike. The other small pocket zippers are a bit on the stiff side as well. The reflective material also scuffs easily which is a shame. I haven't sustained any large scratches or gashes but have a collection of little 'dot' scuffs on the top of the bag, I'm not sure what from. Lastly, the price point is quite high and may not be worth it for all. I'm quite happy with my purchase, fits and feels great on my back and I love its thoughtful and stylish design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic bag and highly reflective This is a fantastic bag and is highly reflective at all angles. The only criticisms are the straps could do with a bit of padding and a bit of reflectiveness so you can be seen from the front too. Also due to the highly reflective nature of the material it marks and scratches quite easily and shows up when it does. But ultimately this is a great bag, slightly smaller than the standard backpack but a perfect size for a commute with a change of clothes and puncture repair kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extraordinarily reflective, and beautiful Perhaps the most reflective material I have ever seen, which also gives it a beautiful appearance in daylight. It is quite small and does not stretch. At this price a little padding on the shoulder straps and on the top carrying strap would be appropriate, as would be a small zipped side pocket for keys, etc..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from perfect for the daily work commute I bought the small reflective backpack for the daily commute to work on my bike. It is a perfect size for the essentials you need to and from work. the reflective element is great for being seen in the dark and the backpack fits snuggly to your back.
