- which rucksack for commuting? deuter/patagonia?
I’ve always been a big Patagonia fan – got one of their courier bags that’s coming up on 10 years old and still looks good as new, plus a bunch of their clothing. Their stuff is built to last, plus it’s all made as eco friendly as possible. Deuter stuff seems good too, so I don’t think you’ll go wrong either way!Posted 5 years agosmoggyMember
Anyone had any experience of the above, I know deuter is a good make but the patagonia is cheaper and possibly better suited, but I want the bag to last…….Posted 5 years ago
The bag will be carrying usual oddments for work, lunchbox, diary, keys,spare trousers etc. I’m specifically looking at the patagonia yerba or the deuter speedlite 15…..
Any help, recommendations would be most appreciated!m1keaMember
I currently have a Deuter Transalp 30 that’s a few years old now.
Ignoring the 13 – 20lb of crap I tend to ride with, it’s very comfortable and the rain cover has seen plenty of use this year.
Not cheap but then I’ve always commuted with rucksacks so wanted something reliable and designed for the job.Posted 5 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
Sod rucksacks. I’m sweaty enough.Posted 5 years agoLegomanMember
I’ve got this from decathlon – bargain for £35.Posted 5 years agomk1fanMember
+2 for putting it on the bike instead.
If this isn’t possible / desired then I’d look for a backpack that has compartments that hold stuff ‘up’ in the bag rather than allowing to just slump down to the bottom. Also good waist / hip straps make a big difference. I bought a Dakine as I had forgotten to pack my Camelbak and it is ten times more comfotable to wear.Posted 5 years ago
