This is the bag I use when commuting on my scoot. Its really light, plenty of room for everything I need and a bit of extra protection in case I fall or get knocked off my scoot. It fits a 4 pint carton of milk, 1 kg pack of sugar, my waterproof jacket and trousers and a large box of Maltesers just for reference lol.

Great style bag I used to have a similar one from Anhauser Busch which also folded down via its zips (also made a good pillow) very durable with a lot of protection potential

Heat from me
Any internal pockets?

Any internal pockets?


Yea there's one the size of a small laptop on the inside of the part that opens, and 2 small nets on the front of that pocket.
Bought one a few years ago, fantastic backpack. Do not know it’s there and really aerodynamic, does not shift about or get caught in winds unlike a normal rucksack
I’ve had one for a couple of years , as others have said , decent quality for price , in my opinion it doesn’t sit well if you have a leather jacket with a hump though , it’s pretty solid , and would 100% buy one again , especially at that price .

I use one on a daily basis and the absence of external zips, pockets etc is a real boon.

Wouldn't describe as *entirely* waterproof, but manages the occasional shower without too much issue.

This offer comes up fairly often, but to be fair, it's quite a decent backpack.
HEAT!

Do you think water proofing spray would help, Id been looking for waterproof bag on Amazon but all looked more like duffell / bin bags then a backpack
Both zips on mine broke after about 18m. Would still recomend as got a lot of use out of it for the 18m, and don't mind the short lifespan for how little I paid.
Cheers, ordered
This is an ok bag for the money but it is not 💯 percent waterproof.
You cannot fit too much in it either so it's not much use for everything you need for the gym.
Both zips broke very quickly on mine and I was a light user and look after my things. The company though replaced this without much fuss but since I got the new one I have just stuck with my old back pack.
It is nice and aerodynamic and comfortable.
How rigid is the shell, could you use it as a makeshift pillow?

It’s a hard shell, no movement at all so keeps it shape. Wouldn’t make for a comfy pillow
Thanks!
Bought one last year and initially was quite pleased, however very poor quality finish: the zips are terrible and the bag is useless if it can't be closed. The plastic fittings on the straps weren't great either but at least didn't come away in my hand.

I'm sure there are probably other brands out there of similar design and superior quality but I wouldn't by another one of these.

Also not at all waterproof, showerproof maybe.
Strangely my brain read that this thread was about a 24L water carrier rucksack and I thought "how many hukd members are doing the Paris-Dakar on a motorbike?"
Ordered black one. Thanks.
Ordered - thanks

Just use a carrier bag as a waterproof liner....

That's the EU standard unit of measurement for you...

Splashed water runs off the bag, the outside is a one-piece impervious shell - I've seen briefcases made of very similar stuff in Ikea

The only way water would get inside would be through the zip, which is deliberately kept to the inside (in contact with your back) and is "water resistant" but not an airtight seal.

"Waterproof" is a relative term - depends on what you want to carry - if it was *really* wet I'd double-bag a laptop in ziplock pouches, if it was a map, spare pullover and sandwich box, I'd take my chances.
Sorry if this sounds obvious, but strictly for motor cyclists only, I bought one last time and wasn’t a great look on a pedal bike

not really, buy a waterproof bag from Lomo. lomo.co.uk/aca…tml for inside it.


Or instead, yes it's dearer, but better. lomo.co.uk/aca…tml

Will it fit a helmet in? after one that will If anyone can advise. Thanks.

Not unless your helmet fold flat in the middle. This is about 5 inches deep at the deepest point and curves to the edges. Lots of wasted space when you use it to be honest

I use it to cycle to the shops on my planet X road bike... Absolutely perfect for two 4 pints of milk, chocolates, pizza etc.
Black is now down to £8.99!!!
It's a cool bag but the things on the zips on mine fell off pretty quicikly.

I'm a baldy man in my late 50s, 5 foot 7 and easily the "wrong" side of 13 stone - clad entirely in Lycra and riding a pushbike, I'm not narcissistic enough to imagine many would express as their first reaction "what an example of masculinity, shame about the motorcycle backpack"

Use it on a bicycle if you like, but your back will probably get pretty sweaty.

Cheers for this info, was wondering about getting one for out and about on my mountain bike but won’t bother now.
thanks this looks sturdy enough
Brilliant deal, heated.
Although i hate wearing a backpack when riding, so i use tailpacks.
It must be a long journey to need a 24 litre bag or one must be very thirsty to need this. Heat added nonetheless
