In the past I have got a a very good softcell cycling jacket which when it gets a little colder I practically live in. It has the bonus of being able to take the sleeves off so you can wear it as a cycling "gilet".
This time though I spotted a bike rucksack I liked the look of so I went in mainly for that but also got some cycling underwear which in the past has been pretty good.
I've been wondering about having a rucksack the last few months but wanted something small and compact that I wouldn't over load cause it was big. So in comes the Crane Bike Rucksack.

Further along in the aisle I saw a 2ltr water bladder. I didn't see the bladder advertised so I made sure it fit in rucksack, it did so I grabbed it.

I will be testing it out in the next day or so to see how it goes. So instead of having a couple of water bottles on BBB I can have 2ltrs in the rucksack aswell as a few snacks and sandwiches.
Thanks for the review.Its nice to see Brompton riders' setups and gear choices. I will keep a lookout for the backpack in Aldi. I have bought bike gear from them in the past and it has been excellent.ReplyDelete
