Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice commuter features, poor overall design I have used this pack for approximately one year for a 10-mile roundtrip bicycle commute. I appreciate the features of this pack that are geared toward bike commuters, such as the U-lock storage, reflective trim and integrated pack-cover. The main storage compartment has the ability to expand by lowering the zippers on each side of the pack. In my case, this allows me to carry a full change of clothes, shoes, small towel and dopp kit. This is also helpful for trips to the grocery store. The top of the bag features a zip pocket which is useful for keys, cellphone, etc. I don’t use the laptop sleeve every day, but this is another nice aspect. While the flap-style closure is novel and allows the bag to be overstuffed, I think this is a significant design flaw in the bag. The hook does not allow the bag to be fully secured as a zipper would. When the bag is full, the hook is tight in the holster, but this leaves the upper sides of the main compartment open on either side of the flap. When the bag is less full, the hook is loose in the holster and can easily come undone while riding or walking with the pack on. Not ideal. Further, this design aspect makes the pack less attractive for other uses, such as overnights or travel, where having a backpack that closes properly is preferable. Overall a good effort from Osprey, but I would recommend they design subsequent bicycle commuter bags that actually close. I’m still using this pack for my daily rides, but in retrospect I wish I had opted for another product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rainy day bike pack I use this product primarily for school and bike-commuting. The bag has a perfect fit and makes any load feel lighter. The rain cover gives me peace of mind that my goods will make it safe and sound to my destination. It is perfect for a laptop and a few books! Definitely worth the price.

I am wanting to take this backpack abroad. I love the flap because it offers another layer of protection from theft. I am wondering, however, if there is a way to lock the top flap shut? I am looking for a pack that can be secured with an external lock.

I had the same thought and found an easy solution... Not "lock" per se, but I've attached a small light-duty carabiner to the bike-light strap. If I want to really secure the flap, I simply pass the other side of the carabiner through hole in the bottom of flap "latch". It's not a lock, but it's more than most any pickpocket could deal with on the go.
