Hi there, Im looking to buy a bag, now this might sound daft but I'll be using it for going to the shop to pick up some cans of beer etc instead of driving, now would I be better buying a normal sports one or a proper mtb, the mtb ones I've seen in the mags look a bit small ,what are your through and what ones would you recommend, links would be great.

    if it is for shopping only. a rucksack with chest strap and compression straps.

    stops the beer from moving.

    well for beer you realy needs a good old BSO then get 2 plastic bags and hang them off the handle bars. :wink:
    well thats how most of the lads that live near me do it :P



    i think that a MTB hydration pack would not be best for shooping as they are small.
    If you are only getting a few things then a normal rucksack or messinger bag will do but if you are wanting a mamoth weeks shopping then i would go for

    the problem with the messenger bag is when you come to open the Beer.

    cmon guys, give me a hand here, the transport of beer is important.
  • Empty the beer into your camel back bladder then sup as you ride home. you won't even need to suck as the beer will be pressurised with the jiggling around.
  • As nicklouse said, any backpack with chest straps. If you have a TK Maxx near you go in there, you'll pick up a branded one for about £15 which will be alreet ;)
