Waterproof backpack

Postby teak81 » Sat Mar 03, 2012 8:56 pm

I have two bikes that i use to commute on. One set up with waterproof ortileb panniers for riding in the rain, and my racer with a backpack. I always had the problem of when i rode the racer that i was always worried that my gear would get wet in the rain. I have stumbled across a very good back pack. Check out the overboard bags web site. I got a slightly shop soiled bag that retailed for $110 reduced to $30 on eBay. Bargain, it is fully waterproof and even has an airflow back panel to aid in riding in summer. Check their site out. They also sell panniers, the back pack i have is a 30 litre version and is excellent quality. :D
