    Comments about Phoenix Cycling Backpack:

    I use the bag to bike to work, it's a good size holding my cloths, shoes, food and laptop.

    However, the shoulder straps are too close one another. I don't particularly have a large neck but it bothers me especially when lightly loaded. If you are Mr muscles, get another bag.

    Secondly, it lacks a waist strap and when the bag is lightly loaded it sits too high on the shoulders and hits the neck while riding which is very annoying. It's fine when fully loaded.

      Comments about Phoenix Cycling Backpack:

      This is a great product! What I like most is the possibility to access the main and the computer compartments from the side, which is extremely convenient if you carry a lot of stuff with you. I also like the various smaller pockets. Some have a side zipper, others provide access from the top. The only aspect I cannot judge yet is its degree of rain resistence since I did not yet experience how the bag does in rain. This is actually my second Phoenix (my first one is in grey/orange and I use both in parallel). A great product with unique and very practical design features!

        Comments about Phoenix Cycling Backpack:

        I was very pleased upon initial inspection of the Phoenix. The roads have been too icy for my liking so I haven't ridden yet this year. But I have packed the bag with everything I need for work to see how it would all fit. This has got to be the most practical bag I've used for commuting yet. Everything fits Laptop, shoes, change of clothes, towel, toiletries, lunch and room to spare. I really can't wait to get on the road tomorrow.

            It is bigger than I thought which is my own fault for not looking at the deminsions better, but it has really helped relieve my backaches. I carry a backpack everday to and from work and I do a lot of walking in between the train and the ferry.
            I cannot believe how light this backpack feels even when I load it up.

            Almost everything about this backpack is exactly what I want and need. I feel like my computer is safe while on my bike, and it's got enough room for my tools, a clean shirt and flat kit and lights for my bike. My only complaints are the color options, they're kind of boring, and I wish it had a good way to hang a U-lock, rather than having to choose between a water bottle and a lock.

              I had to replace a broken knapsack and was happy to find a good selection of equal value knapsacks to choose from. I would have liked to be granted a little bit more of a refund considering it took over $20 to ship the old broken one back. It took a few weeks, but when it arrived, I was thrilled with the new sack.

                  Comments about Phoenix Cycling Backpack:

                  This backpack is great. I BART/cycle everyday to work and always have at a minimum my workout clothes, lunch and laptop. It fits all of these things with ease and has room for more stuff. I'm just exploring all of this backpacks capabilities. The only con is that the laptop sleeve is on the outside of the backpack and I'm nervous that in a downpour it might leak through and get my laptop wet. Overall though, great design and great backpack.
