Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikora Waterproof but not very durable
I've used this pack almost daily for two years. It's completely waterproof, apart from the zip compartment, and one of the most useful bike products I've had. It's great to be able to throw everything in the pack and know that it will stay bone dry. It's also nice that the pack itself doesn't get saturated.
The only downside is that it isn't particularly durable. After two years my pack has worn through at one corner and has a small crack on one side. I'm going to buy a new one but only use it on wet days to prolong its life.

This is essentially a dry-bag with shoulder straps, but with a nice moulded back pad, chest strap and removable waist strap. I love that last feature - I don't need a waist strap for most of my cycling and being able to just take it off is perfect!
Unlike many large back packs, this one doesn't interfere with my head movement despite riding a bike with drop bars, even when the bag is stuffed full.
The external pouch is nice for sticking things I need to grab quickly, like my lock, but those waterproof zippers are notorious for breaking and I fear this one will too, if I use it enough.
The back pad is also completely removable, although I have no idea why, unless you really did want to use this as a dry bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I just got one of these, and I'm really impressed with the quality of design and construction. I was worried that the waist strap might be a nuisance, but it is easily detachable. Although it understandably doesn't have lots of compartments, it sits well with the top wide open so it's very easy to get at the contents. I hope it's as durable as it looks.
