I’m after some backpack recommendations.
I’m looking for something that will fit my derby stuff plus 2 x gym clothes 2 x food containers and a laptop.

Any suggestions please?
I’ve already looked at Mountain warehouse and Northface.

Thanks

Air cabin max bag should hold all that - you’re welcome to try mine on thurs (if Jackie doesn’t mind taking it to training)

Excellent, thanks both.

I bought a triathlon bag today in decathlon. It has 3 compartments (one which zips off if you want). It fits all my shit including my helmet pretty perfectly. I’m gonna try it out before deciding (coz I want something really comfy on my bike so I’m being picky, but you’d think a triathlon bag would be pretty good?).

You’re welcome to try it if you’re coming skating Wednesday.

Here’s the link and I’ve included some shit photos.

Anyone got any top tips for a backpack that fits all the usual skate stuff but is also relatively compact and good for cycling? The Air Cabin ones look great but huge... are they too big? I have an OK one from Decathalon but it has a hard back to make it more comfy, but when I cycle it presses into the back of my neck due to cycling position. Thanks!

Edit - I just saw there is a Cabin Max at 44 litres but also a mini one at 30 litres. Does anyone have the small one?

I cycle with my air cabin max, it works really well and doesn't sit too high up either. Downsides to it are if I don't pack my skates properly I end up with a wheel digging into my spine (which isn't the comfiest experience) and also it doesn't have a chest strap, so after a while I found it would get kinda painful on my shoulders/lower back because it doesn't distribute the weight well. I have an old shoulder injury though so this is probably worse for me than most!

Other than those though, I've found it really good and fits everything in without being too bulky!

Oooh, top info thanks Chewie. I will grab someone with one of those bags and have a gander.

I used to cycle with a Jansport backpack that fit my kit nicely, it had great back padding and straps and wasn't too huge. Not waterproof tho.
