    Well they look nice - but I got the small one of these, it is great! £17.50

    Deuter seem to make the best bags for cycling, DHB's manufacturing quality is questionable at best.

    I use the Vaude airflow thing one. Plenty of room for my day's clothes. It is also expandable at the bottom which creates a tear shaped bag, keeping the bulk low down, essential if you need to be able to glance over your shoulder.

    i use a deuter cross-air (wheni do use a pack, which is rare now).

    comfy, pretty roomy, nice built-in rain cover, helmet space on the front, couple of pockets and the camel-bak bladder space on the inside (handy for keeping documents in!) means i've found it very handy.

    cheers for that

    think am going to go for the cross-air

    sick of using old adidas rucksack which is just no good for cycling whatsoever lol

    I've been using the 17L Salomon Raid Revo, but its too small for the OP. They do a 35L version though and that will take what you need. Visability might be an issue though with the bigger bags.

    Deuter bags are worth the extra cash. 22L is enough for what you need. I use the 12L (10+2L) but leave shoes at work.

    I use a 35 litre alpkit Gordon. It's great, it's got a small hole but alpkit provide puncture repair patches with it.

    well went for the deuter cross air in the end, just awaiting delivery now along with all other stuff, just hoping can get back on bike again soon :D

    I'd recommend the air-back system that deuter etc have:

    I use a berghaus freeflow 20, which at 20L is *just* adequate for my commuting stuff, but good on the back, with a similar system.

    The frame helps to keep the weightr well-distributed.
