Perfect for commuting
- I've put it through the wringer
Oh man where to start. This was an impulse purchase - Strava had some commuter challenge and a discount on this pack was the reward. Since then it's been like 2 years of daily commutes in all weather and it's held up great. I roll my clothes into an 8L dry bag that goes into the main section, then I leave bike tools in one shoe holder & first aid supplies in the other; works great. 13" work laptop fits just fine, even with that other stuff. Laptop + clothes + a pair of shoes is pushing it though. They used to advertise this as machine wash, air dry but I don't see that anymore. Hasn't stopped me - just make sure to take the plastic board out.

The smaller model (Rapid 14L) includes a small pocket and hose-guide for a hydro-bag, does this model include something similar?

Hi Aaron, This backpack does have a pocket but was designed to put in a shirt, it would be tough to fit in a bladder.

Our award winning cycling pack is now better than ever. Designed in collaboration with San Francisco's Mission Cycling Club, the Raider Pack frees you to get in a pre-work ride without weighing you down. Weighing less than a pound, the Raider was named after Mission Cycling's pre-work "raids" up the Marin Headlands. Cooked up over a post-raid breakfast at a San Francisco neighborhood café, Timbuk2 and Mission Cycling were sweaty, tired, and sick of carrying their street clothes in bulky backpacks built for hiking. Understanding the need for a small, lightweight commuter pack that could hold the day's essentials without slowing down the pre-work ride, this Raider was born.
