Defy have a flyweight Dyneema dopp kit, if you're looking for inspiration. :)

Thrux Lawrence bags are 50% off, so they're merely expensive now.

The Rofmia Shift Series looks like a Japanese version of Outlier's bags. This is the backpack, which is made of Dyneema. Via Carryology.

Bedouin Foundry Dyneema Delireis is on sale:

Also, I just noticed the Midship. Looks interesting. I like the idea of having the tote handles.

I love my Delireis but I really wish it had a top handle.

Anyone with great bag knowledge (I know @Graeme and @Cutlasshound fit the bill, but I am sure many of you I have not already spoken to about this also do) able to recommend a good size rucksack to cycle with that is large enough for a full outfit inc. boots, a water bottle and packed lunch as well as a laptop and notebook etc? My Goruck has lasted me well but is a shade on the small size now. Waterproofing is a bonus given our climate!
Cheers

Most of my favourite bags come in a bit smaller than a Goruck @Alex. :)

I like the look of the Mission Workshop backpacks. I saw them at the sadly closed Carryology Store a couple of years ago. They looked pretty solid, and some of them come up quite large. Plus they're designed for cycling.

I've got a Defy Verbockel, which is pretty big, but also quite heavy. Some of the stitching isn't as straight as I'd like, but it seems tough.

Personally I would avoid any made from waxed canvas as they make your back sweat.  I would also go for one with a full clamshell offered rather than a rolltop as they offer far better access. These days, it is not a full clamshell or equivalent (i.e Mystery Ranch tri-zip,m) then I don’t bother looking as I know I will just get irritated with it at some point.

I would have a look at the TAD Axiom range. It has received excellent reviews. https://theperfectpack.com/ reviewed the 18l version but they now do a 24l version which I will pick up at some point. Fabric is vx-21 ripstop which is waterproof and very lightweight.

You could also check out the TAD Fastpack Litespeed (if you are not adverse to a bit of Molle webbing). Pretty sure they have a VX-21 version as a limited run. I had a cordura one. It was excellent and only retired it as have a Mystery Ranch ASAP and a TAD Scout which are more versatile for my needs these days (that and Fran was about to castrate me if I did not get rid of at least one bag).

Otherwise, Bagjack have a lot of nice offerings and they are a cycle courier brand. Eye wateringly expensive for some of the NXL models but the quality is excellent.

Also, out of the left field, the Arcteryx Leaf courier is supposed to be absolutely exceptional, but not sure how much it holds!

Thanks, both! Some good ones to look into there

I'd get a Mission Workshop. I reckon the TAD fastpack to be too small. The Rambler from MW expands from 22 to 44 liters.
Think it, be it.

The mission workshop ones are looking like the best option so far, though I take @Cutlasshound's point about clamshell vs roll top

In addition to TAD, I've had good luck with Vertx.


My next bag will probably be from Pelican though.

This probably should go into the rant thread, but I was walking in the Riverside Mall the other day in New Orleans and there was a young teenager wearing a plate carrier in there. Not sure what kind of fashion statement he was trying to make, but it reinforced my overall disdain for MOLLE on regular people.


For those that don't know what a plate carrier is:





Clearly this dipshit wasn't using it as intended, because usually there's 20+lbs of steel plates in there. Hauling that shit around all day is no fun.

I’ve talked myself out of it probably 5 times. I literally promised myself that the Nomin was my last bag....but I did that with my Visvim 20L too

I'm tempted by the Delireis SE too, but I don't need another bag. :D

@Alex you might also take a look at Velomacchi. They're mostly motorcycle focused, but should work on a pushbike.

Alchemy also do some cool bags, as do Trakke.
