Best Cycling Rucksacks

Cycling has seen a massive boom in recent months, with numerous lockdowns here in the UK people are turning to alternative ways to exercise rather than visiting the gyms which are currently closed. Whether you cycle for fun and need something small to keep your water bottle and valuables in or if you're cycling for commuting purposes and need something that will fit in your laptop or documents, there's something for each lifestyle in our range of cycling backpacks.


Features To Look For When Buying a Cycling Rucksack

  • Capacity - This will be different for everyone dependant on your needs, if you're cycling to work it's likely that you'll need a large capacity rucksack compared to those who are just going for a weekend ride.
  • Comfort - This is key, when shops are open it's a good idea to physically try on a backpack to check its comfort level, you will be looking for features such as padded straps and mesh to reduce sweat, alongside some breathable material where the bag makes contact with your back.
  • Rain Proof - If you're going to be cycling a lot, it's inevitable that you'll get caught in the rain at some point. It's important to ensure your rucksack can offer you some degree of waterproof protection, whether it be in the form of waterproof material, a rain cover or a durable water repellent coating.
  • Compartments - This again will differ for everyone, if you're commuting you may want to look out for features such as padded laptop space or if you are going on cycling adventures you may want easily accessible pockets.
