Best Rucksack? — BikeRadar

Hi all after a new rucksack backpack on a limited budget £30?
I like ruckstack better, sounds really funky
Alpkit Gourdon 20litre drybag (I have used mine kayaking, keeping phone and camera in)
It can apparently take a hydration bladder* (and has a couple of mesh pockets)
Mine is now about 3-years old, and my favourite daysac when hillwalking.
Customer service is good. They do keep their stock levels pretty accurate, whih is good as they don't have very large runs. At the moment some are available.
I also have their gamma headtorch as an emergency light in my pannier - most of the time I use a pannier for cycling.
*I have not used this feature although I have used the pocket for waterproof maps, and have used the integral back mat as a sitter at lunchtimes
This. I have had the previous version for about six years, it is excellent, especially at thus price.

£10 over budget, but I just bought one and its really good if your planning on riding in the rain.

I 'liked' them on facebook for a 10% discount.
Trek 1.5 Road
In the end went for this

£21.32 ordered on monday arrived today first impressions looks really good had some great reviews so only time will tell
Sports Direct do some Karrimor ones for £15-25 all around 30 litres. Cheap and cheerful!
Like Snowster I use the DHB Luggit Slice from Wiggle but I have the 15L one (
). Had it for 18 months and it's still going strong. Not waterproof but a small cheap drybag for electricals solves that problem for me. In the 15l I can get a tablet, shirt, underwear and lunch. Even manage a full set of clothes for dress down Friday (shoes have to go in the mesh side pockets).
Feels really light on my back and doesn't interfere with the ride. Great bags for the price.
