Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Chrome Barrage Cargo Pack

(1/4)

Riding with the pack is remarkably comfortable. The moulded back panel, vented shoulder straps, and neat, non-intrusive ergonomic yoke across the shoulders create a system that not only sits precisely on your back, but also provides unhindered visibility when looking back over your shoulder while riding.

Compartment

Chrome Barrage Cargo Pack

(1/1)

An easy-access zipped pocket sits underneath it for phone, keys and the like, while the side pockets are big enough for water bottles and/or a U-lock.

Carry-on

Chrome Barrage Cargo Pack

(1/1)

What do the Bible, £50,000 and 20 servings of lamb curry have in common? Or perhaps a laptop, 2 tomahawks and a spare change of underwear? Well, these are all things that at some point have been in my rucksack over the last year. Some of them are in my backpack essentially everyday, others have been a one-time-only occasion (don’t worry – I don’t regularly carry large amounts of cash or throwing axes). Read More: The point I am trying to make here is that a backpack must be able to handle a wide variety of payloads. The nature of commuting is that it must not only handle a variety of payloads but must also be suitable for the myriad conditions that are faced on my UK-based commute (essentially different levels of rain)

Size

Strap

Chrome Barrage Cargo Pack

(1/1)

The ergonomically shaped shoulder straps are padded and mesh-lined for added breathability, while the webbing has reflective detailing.
