    systems although I haven t taken advantage of that feature yet For me it will never be my daily go to bag I live in Seattle it rains here a lot and my daily bike bag needs to be water proof Also it is a smaller pack than I typically need I ve been spoiled by my XL messenger bags that can carry just about anything your willing to strap on your back I see myself continuing to use it on the bike when I don t want the weight of my full sized bag However the main thing I foresee using it for is day hikes and off the bike errands I also discovered it makes a great travel bag in which to stash your cycling clothes and helmet The breath ability is perfect for your sweaty kit and the wide top opening nicely fits your helmet It is a very versatile bag different than anything else I ve used and I hope to continue to find new uses for it Check out the full specs options of the bag HERE Tags backpack Bag Review Boreas Boreas Lagunitas Boreas Lagunitas Review Tall Bryan Bicycle rider mechanic and collector Living and riding in Seattle since 2001 Comments 2 canary April 2 2013 at 11 47 AM too bad backpacks with those awesome frame ventilation panels are pain tastic for any girl with a decent sized rack most girls have a slightly concave lower back to support the weight of their chests and the bottom edge of these kind of packs always end up bruising and rubbing their hate into your hips Reply Tall Bryan April 2 2013 at 1 00 PM That is something I ve never considered for obvious reasons I know some companies are making women specific backpacks

  • Go Means Go! Review: 200+ Miles with the Chrome Bravo Night | GO MEANS GO
    a built in nylon extension that folds out and Velcros shut to hold even more I was shocked at how much the bag could hold when you need it to After one particularly overzealous grocery run I found my bag maxed out to the limits of even the extension When I arrived home I figured I would document exactly how much stuff that was this is the proper ratio for a Red Bull and vodka As a means of comparison I decided I d take the contents and shove it into my Bagaboo a full sized custom messenger bag and was surprised to see it nearly filled that as well While the Bagaboo carried the load more comfortably the Chrome s extension tends to impede looking up when wearing a helmet it still got my goods home One other cool feature on this bag and all the others in their Night series is the 3M reflective panel on back Visibility is an extremely important part of bicycle safety but not all of us want to show up for a day glo dinner date either The 3M panel is undercover reflective In indirect light it just just looks like a black bag When light hits you get a face full of pure white reflection Below is a demo using a crappy AA powered headlamp Pretty cool right And it s small enough to bring into the bar or restaurant without taking out the other patrons around you Negatives I found very few I occasionally missed the accessibility of the shoulder bag and I do wish it had a dedicated loop for a light The compartments are so deep I often found myself carry around more stuff than I intended to because I simply forgot what was buried at the bottom Unpacking the full bag to find a wayward tire lever is annoying but I appreciate the having the space instead of useless and unused organizers At 180 the Bravo Night is not a cheap bag neither in cost nor quality and one I think the average commuter might find themselves using on a daily basis for a long time It s comfort collapsible size and downplayed looks make it bag I don t mind carrying even when not on bike In life past the 200 mile review mark I do find myself going back to my shoulder bags sometimes but overall it has won me over to commuting with two straps it looks like I m not the only one greghxc Urban cyclist bicycle events planner and consumer of fine beers and vegan food Comments 2 antonio November 28 2014 at 7 27 AM Hi Very nice review it was very useful What is your opinion about this comment I found on Amazon http www amazon com review R1ERS5RHAWNQVU ref cm cr dp title ie UTF8 ASIN B00E94UJB8 channel detail glance nodeID 541966 store pc Reply Mark Kenny January 10 2015 at 1 17 PM I m considering this bag for
