THE LONG AND THE SHORT OF IT IS, SAMMY CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THE RAMBLER BACKPACK FROM MISSION WORKSHOP. AND, IF YOU TRY AND TELL HIM SOMETHING ELSE IS BETTER THEN YOU'LL GET AN EAR FULL.
The guys from Mission Workshop are based in San Fran and aren't new to the cyclist utility bag game; they have been making bags since 1994. The weatherproof Rambler comes in two sizes (the Vandal is the larger) and has about a million compartments, which you open out to provide more and more capacity, perfect for when you next to stash that emergency box of wine or go on an epic trip.
The back sheet combined with the adjustable straps spreads the weight of the bag evenly across the back of the rider. There are plenty of weatherproof compartments, zips and tricks. Loops for locks and easy fixing for rear lights. Sammy likes it because you can unfold so much that a keg will fit inside and after crashing on the bag it remained unscathed. But they also come with a lifetime warranty too.
