Large Rucksack for day long rides

Postby sirichmond » Tue Dec 04, 2012 09:52 am

Hi All,

I have a budget of £75 for a new backpack for long all day rides, would need a decent size bladder as well as room for spare warm clothing and food. Any suggestions.

Cheers

Have a look at the Revolution range at Edinburgh bikes. They're basically rebranded Vaude rucksacks so are fantastic. There's a few different sizes available but they'll all hold a bladder. I have a Vaude Alpin which is pretty much the same as the Revolution Stow Expert in the link below. It's a bigger pack at 25l but I use it for commuting, full day trips and weekend trips. It's fantastic and despite being a good size doesn't feel big on the back. Holds eveything I need and is very comfortable. It also has a zipped extension which increases pack size to 30l if needed.

I'd recommend http://www.cotswoldoutdoor.com/index.cf ... tAodiy0Anw - Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam, I have one and there is plenty of room inside. It also has handy pockets on the belt strap, a helmet cradle for off the bike, hydration compatible, and is very breathable. The rain cover is brilliant too, a nice orangey/yellow colour.
