Strap

Dayfarer
Peak Design makes good products
I love Peak Design products. I have a few straps, camera hand strap, 5L Sling and now the Tech Pouch. Great organisational bag for travelling and was hoping to use it with a strap for daily use. This version (Amazon) is slightly different from the Peak Design website version (external looped attachm...

Velomacchi Speedway Hybrid Travel Duffle | Busted Wallet
The wind in your hair, the fresh air in your lungs, and the bugs splattered in your face. What’s not to love about road tripping on a bike. In all seriousness though, it is important to pack light and pack tight. What better way to do that than with a versatile convertible pack. The fine folks o...

Quality Tech Bag, High Price Point
For those whose backpack or bag does not have a lot of compartments and want all small items in one concentrated area. This personally makes other pouches i own obsolete as I don't have to dig or shuffle around items saving a lot of time. I put it beside my keyboard at my desk for easily accessibili...

Comfort

Dayfarer

Once stuffed with 1 dozen cables, one tiny notepad, one hard disk, two powerbanks, the thickness is half inch more than the depth of the compartment. I can fit it in the center of the bag. Ragarding use, it's really comfortable an...

Velomacchi Speedway
Speedway 28l backpack
Very well made backpack. Feels tough, tons of pockets and space. Most important, very comfortable while riding. I have a bobber with short bars, the backpack fits perfect. Quick release is awesome.

Pricey but awesome
This is a very well made case, which is reflected in the price. I wasn't sure if this would provide the value to me it cost, so was pre-disposed to be disappointed by it. That all said, I've found it to be my favorite cable and gadget organizer to date. I work remotely, so my computer bag is my offi...

Brand New Bag: Velomacchi Speedway Backpack | CityBike Magazine
These are all pretty minor concerns, especially if you don’t ride in the rain or don’t carry a laptop, and realistically a bigger concern for many will be the Speedway’s price: at $269 MSRP, it’s well into the premium backpack range—although it’s certainly not alone there. Ultimately, the Speedway 28L is a well-made, highly-functional, stylish bag that has become my primary riding backpack.
