Bike backpacks and messenger bags

Bike backpacks and messenger bags for cycling essentials

Whether you're bouncing down rocky trails on your mountain bike or commuting to work on your road bike, chances are you need to store a few things that won’t fit in your pockets. From extra tubes to a change of clothes, pop whatever you need in your bike backpack for free hands to keep riding safely.

Bike backpacks are a go-to if you love long rides. No need to stop for a drink with hydration-compatible packs that have a hydration sleeve to stow your water bladder. Trekking pole attachments make it easy to tack on some hiking gear for ditching your bike at the trail head and setting out for a trail run. Ventilated back panels help keep out heat for arriving at the office sweat-free. Side pockets have just enough room for a water bottle and cycling GPS in case you make a wrong turn.

The classic messenger bag has you arriving at the office in style. With enough room for all your work-day essentials, including a laptop sleeve, messenger bags do the job of a bike backpack but keep you up to office dress code.

For a more compact option, waist packs let you move the weight from your back to your hips and have more space than you would expect.
