I originally bought this backpack because I needed a strong and comfortable backpack while biking around NYC. It's made out of a very strong material, and 100% waterproof. I'm very satisfied with this backpack and I couldn't be happier! Also, BikeTiresDirect has an excellent customer service, and they were very helpful when I could track the package online. Thanks for a great product and excellent service.
Took this backpack on a short Europe trip and was very pleased with its performance. It easily fits into the overhead compartments, feels comfortable, is waterproof, extremely well made and on top of it all - looks super. Used it a couple of times while riding my bike and that too went very well. So yes, highly recommended!
