    the mission workshop bags i saw irl a year or so ago looked cool but seemed to me that the expandable gusset/closure/zipper system would be the weak spot if subjected to actual work use. but idk, maybe someone actually uses one for work and can expound more.gone

    my roommate has the vandl, i was checking it out last night. he said it's not a bag he'd want to messenger in, as far as ease of use/storage capacity is concerned. the main, thinner pocket that you use predominantly is separated from the expandable middle, so you can never use the full internal space at once, it's always going to be a big and a thin compartment. it also doesn't have an easy spot to put a u-lock. perfect for a commuter and grocery runs. he's had it for almost two years and it looks brand new. so the quality seems great.

    i saw a rookie in chicago with one; it was definitely not big enough. i'd love a mission workshop if i'm commuting; when i'm working i just want a giant pouch.You're purposefully attempting to sabotage my degree project. Thanks.

    Chrome is a little predictable, but the Pro backpacks are pretty solid.

    I found that I could fit the most in one of these, no U-lock pocket, but I usually keep that in hand to defend myself from PETA.

    You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    I've had a Mission Workshop bag for almost 3 years now, and it has held up wonderfully other than that zipper in the middle, though, I have one of the first ever produced. They have fixed the problem, and will fix mine, I just don't want to be without a bag for a couple weeks while they replace the zipper. That being said, despite living out of it for 3 months, I would not have liked it when I was working as a courier. It holds a lot of shit, but it is not a big gaping hole like a Freight, or a Seagull.

    Punk iphone:I swear some of you^ are retarded. A fucking queer little Jansport will hold 99% of what you need. What it doesn't fit inside is easily secured to it from a number of straps.... Not "waterproof" enough? Try putting yer shit in a garbage bag then the jansport, works like a fucking wet dream. You shit-nuts would rather spend 200 dollars on a giant retarded looking bag that won't be "waterproof" after one fucking season anyway. Oh yeah, you "look" like a messenger with a huge retarded bag on, that's the draw I suppose? My motherfucking courierware bag is 15 years old and wasn't waterproof after a season or two. Guess what, I put my shit in a little grocery bag and then the courierware bag, and WALA it's fucking "waterproof"! Line your bag with 5 cents worth of a plastic bag and your there. I don't think one of the bag makers mentioned here^ where even making bags when I started using my courierware bag( I realize there a one strap design but I mention them because of the whole "waterproof" issue that you deem important, but is not). Use a real backpack made from any number of hiking companies b4 you throw your money away on something as stupid looking as that asshole wearing the obligatory rookie asshole head ware "brooklyn" cycling cap and that ugly fucking bag. JESUS H FUCKING CHRIST you people are dumb n getting dumber

    You know what else I hate today? Bandannas. That's right: fuck bandannas. If you want to keep your pant leg from getting greased, just wear shorts motherfucker. And if you want to keep your neck warm, just wear mock turtlenecks everywhere.

    I am totes for real - Geekhouse is theoretically making me a picnic bike, and I need a picnic pannier. And a baguette pannier. That backpack is probably more than I need, I think I need a cutting board slot, 2 small plates, utensils, and 4ish beer holsters, and a larger compartment for the snackzorz. Maybe an ice-pack compartment? Not like thermo lined, just a place to stick one near the beers. I've been envisioning a wine glass rack that holds them upright on the top of the rear rack- mostly because it would be hilarious.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    So this bag isnt a cycling bag, but it does pretty much EVERYTHING i want: http://goincase.com/shop/incase-eo-travel-backpack.

    But it's $180 dollars, fuck.

    Anyone know of of a sub-100 bag that isnt just a cloth bucket, has some decent gear management, and is still a decent size?

    Something that opens flat like that one above does, i think that'd be really cool.

    One day I just have to figure out how to make my own.EPIC! Stratton: ^fwiw he did in fact have a map out.... ...while riding.... ...with no hands.... ..on fire*...

    Well I've just spent the last 3 hours doing research apparently... and i've come up with a list of packs for you all..... brands we're not used to seeing too (aside from one from timbuk2). These meet all of my "non-bucket" requirements.

    Three bags, totally in my price range, kind of awesome: http://www.cocooninnovations.com/cat_info.php?cat_id=68
    The rest are all at or above 100...
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/112024965/waxed-canvas-backpack-bicycle-backpack?ref=shop_home_active
    http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/products/especial-medio-cycling-backpack
    Military Grade http://www.goruck.com/en/sk16
    Military Grade 2 http://www.511tactical.com/rush-12-backpack.html
    So beautiful: http://www.crumpler.com/us/Laptop-Bags/Laptop-Backpacks/Nhil-Heist.html

    And you're familiar with MW, http://missionworkshop.com/products/arkiv-system-bags/R2-field-pack-overview.php

    I'll probably go with the less expensive one from the first link. Now I'm trying to decide if i want a slim bag for just commuting to/fro work or a full-time bag.

    I'm probably gonna get a roll-up for my tools so I can keep them A) together, b) easily transferrable.

    EDIT: this one is 200+ but is nice looking. http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/products/walker-laptop-macbook-backpack. it's the bucket, but it has so many pockets i would be able to manage stuff. but it's kinda bulky.EPIC!

    I wanted to hate on all of these, because most are forgettable, but that waxed canvas one is DOPE AS HELL.

    worth clicking on all them linx to find that.

    well always Fuck Timbuk2... wait... for some reason I also expect timbuk2 to have shit quality. But I have like 2-3 bags from them, and they've all lasted several years. The design a few years ago was shite, but the new ones look like they have some thought put into them.

    That waxed one is dope as hell, and for only what, $200, totally fucking reasonable. Roughly the same dimentions as my Chrome upright sack. Just it'd have the same problems. It'd just turn into a very fancy bucket o junk. But it's also a pannier... so anyone who has better stuff-management skills than I, check it out. And they've got other sick bags too.

    For the price, the cocoon ones seem pretty sweet. The slim one cant stop grabbing my attention, but the quality of the bag looks terrible. The One up top in the post before the links, the "EO Travel Backpack" from incase is supposed to be great quality, and has some nifty features, being able to open it all the way means I could clean it out easily. But fuck, it's 180.EPIC! Stratton: ^fwiw he did in fact have a map out.... ...while riding.... ...with no hands.... ..on fire*...
