The messenger bag
Messenger bags are great for commuters and those looking to nip around town on two wheels with their luggage. The good thing about messenger bags, is that even though they are engineered for cycling functionality, they also look great. You wouldn't know a messenger bag was anything other than a trendy bag, with their stylish features and easy-on-the-eye designs, they're the perfect choice for many cyclists on the go. Messenger bags also feature internal compartmentalisation for easy and secure storage.
For the more adventurous cyclist who needs a more secure and stable solution, the classic rucksack can be the perfect answer. The type of riders that will benefit the most from the rucksack are off-road riders and those that tackle tough terrain on the road. The design of the rucksack means it's held close to the body and is very secure and safe for all your belongings. You may however, simply prefer the design and feel of a rucksack over the messenger style, there are no rules, it's simply down to your personal preference.
Some rucksacks also come with hydration capabilities and water reservoirs, popular brands include the famous Camelback, and we have plenty more of every type of backpack, here at ProBikeKit USA.
