There’s only so much you can say about a backpack – but the Eigo waterproof backpack deserves a special mention – partly for its ability to hold up in some seriously severe weather, and partly because of its excellent value for money when you look at the other bike bags on the market.
It features hi-visibility fluorescent yellow panels, combined with printed reflective details, which help to make the rucksack (and you) visible out on the road – which is particularly valuable if the weather does take a turn. And if it does, the Eigo waterproof backpack keeps your clobber bone dry in a downpour, thanks to its TPU exterior, roll down top and welded seams. There’s also an external zip-up compartment which is also storm proof.
It’s really comfortable too – adjustable padded shoulder straps, a waist and chest belt, and back padding lifting the backpack away from your body, and distributing the weight evenly across your back.
In short, this 30-litre capacity backpack is perfect for all year round riding – and coming in just shy of £60, it represents great value for money too.
