Large Fixed Backpack
FROM RAPHA SITE:
Following the success of the acclaimed Rapha Fixed Backpack comes its larger counterpart. Continuing with the same robust fabrics and ergonomic design, the pack has greater capacity and additional features that make it ideal for commuting and touring, whether it be a hard slog through the rain to the office or a week’s randonee in the Alps.
The pack’s black exterior has, like its smaller relative, a central panel of reflective pin-dots to aid visibility at night. A tough, waterproof fabric and waterproof zips keep contents dry and safe. Light loops are positioned on the straps and back panel. The spine-configuration padding allows the bag to hug the rider’s back comfortably and effectively for movement on the bike. The pack has two pockets on the front and a new inner pocket configuration.
The inside of the pack is fully lined with a padded laptop sleeve that will take a MacBook Pro or 15” equivalent. There is also a tricot-lined sunglasses pocket, tool pocket and pump retention straps. Also featured is an expandable 5 litre capacity rear-compartment for shoes or a change of clothes. There are 2 front pockets and a new inner pocket layout with pen and pencil holders. As well as a chest strap there is an additional waist-strap to give extra stability when climbing or when the pack is fully loaded.
