The Timbuk2 Track II Cycling Backpack is perfect for light commuting, traveling, and has plenty of pockets to keep things in order. It's comfortable, lightweight, roomy, can be used for the gym or for cycling.
The Track II Cycling Backpack feels high quality but light. There's plenty of room for a beefy laptop and books. The outside pocket is awesome for stowing a frisbee, bike helmet, jacket, or climbing shoes. You'll be able to walk around in fairly heavy rain without your books getting wet.
This bag has a sternum strap, trusty & durable material, and its straps are particularly comfortable. The back padding for ventilation is quite good, and the external flap for helmet and/or wet raincoat is a favorite with users!
How about a sturdy, stylish looking gear bag that can carry all of the following: beach towel, bath towel, bike pump, flip flops, running shoes, cycling shoes, gels, bars, electrolyte tabs, three bottles of water, socks, goggles, spare tubes, various bike tools, spare shirts, and a change of clothes. With this bag you'll have capacity to fit everything, (including the bike pump), portability in the form of shoulder strap(s), pockets to keep the gels from rubbing up against the business end of your flip flops, water proof pockets that can contain a spill to one compartment ... the list goes on but can be summed up in one word ORGANIZATION. Last but not least it's got style: the Timbuk2 Race Duffel Bag.
