- Commuting without a rucksack – what to use?
carradice saddlebag. It may be advisable to use a aluminium seat post so save the post from the clamping mechanism, forget it’s name.
EDIT SQR block.
15 L but hey go bigger up to about 25 LPosted 7 years agoStonerSubscriber
SQR Glentress would be a good commuter bag for that kind of volume:

i used a bumbag for a while. just big enough to get a rolled short, socks and undercrackers into. covered a much smaller area of back than a rucksack, so less sweatiness.
now i’m getting on a bit i’d quite like a sensible audax-y thing with proper mudguards and minimal luggage carrying ability for commuting. (strokes chin).Posted 7 years agoVortexracingSubscriber
I have a 50mile round trip commute and i hate carrying a rucksack as my back gets wet through with sweat.
I have some clothes at work so I need to carry food for lunch, wallet phone, waterproof and other small bits plus usual spares which currently reside in a small seat pack. The bike is a carbon road bike so has no pannier fittings.
apart from this
from ortileb, does anybody have any other options?
Ta in advance

saddle bag with all bike related spares in it.
I use a cycling bum bag – no idea of proper name- you can get this though
not sure of capacity or how much space the rucksac bit takes up /wastes but something like that. you can squeeze a fair amount into mine and i use it for local summer rides as well for same reason as you. Not sure capacity is massive though but would easily take wallet , phones, keys butty box and space for other small itemsPosted 7 years ago
