Osprey Momentum 26 Commuter Backpackis rated3.3333out of5by3.
Rated4out of5byfromOverall Good BagOverall, I like this bag, especially compared to some others I've looked at. It does feel a little rigid to me; I had some difficulty packing and unpacking, especially when it on the fuller side. It does have several pockets for stowing smaller items. It also expands, which is an excellent feature. I have considered upgrading to the bigger size though, especially when I commute to work...maybe I have more stuff to carry as a girl than a guy would...or I'm just higher maintenance. Overall, I've been pleased with it and like it better than other designs.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat bagI love this bag. I use it to commute 100km a week to and from work. It has room for dress shoes with shoe-trees still in, pants, shirt, and bag lunch. I use the smaller front pocket to hold my rain booties, sun and clear lens riding glasses. I like that I can adjust the size of the bag for my ride home when there is less to carry. The cell-phone pocket will fit most large screen smartphones but I doubt you could get a Note in there. The other shoulder strap pocket has a key ring on a retractable line that a really nice touch. The channeling on the back is comparable to most other cycle-specific bags I've looked at and it will get wet but this really doesn't bother me. This will be the case on almost every backpack. The bag itself is fairly water resistant, I rode with it in mild rain for 30 minutes and nothing penetrated to the gear inside. The built in rain cover is extremely easy to deploy.

Rated1out of5byfromNot for womenI wanted to get a larger commuter pack than my old New Sun hydration pack, which is nearly worn out after 14 years so this seemed like a good pack, especially after reading the other reviews. However, after trying it this morning on my 11-mile commute, I would say this is not good for biking and is definitely NOT FOR WOMEN. The shoulder straps are too wide, and the chest strap is too low (cuts across bust area) and is non-adjustable vertically. The top of the pack is too tall and puffy -- it continually bumped against the back of my helmet and obscured my sight lines when I tried to look over my shoulder. The waist/hip strap is too narrow, and overall, no matter how much you cinch the straps, the pack bounces and slides around. I can't imagine a man being comfortable with this pack, either.
