With its no-nonsense utilitarian exterior and decently sized interior, the Vaude Clubride II Backpack is a great option for regular around-town trips, whether for commuting, shopping, or socialising. The backpack is sturdily built and fully waterproof with welded seams and a roll top buckle closure so your stuff will stay safe and dry whatever the weather.
In contrast to its hardy looks, the Clubride II is nicely padded on both the back and shoulder straps, making for a very comfortable fit both on and off the bike. The back of the bag is also designed to allow air to flow between the bag and your back providing enhanced ventilation, whilst additional waist and chest straps are particularly useful for taking the strain off your back and keeping the bag securely in place whilst on the bike.
The bag’s large flap opening makes it easy to load and unload and reflective details and an attachment for a rear light help keep things sorted on the visibility front. The bag has an integrated phone pocket on the shoulder strap and a front zip pocket which would be ideal for keeping your bike lock keys, ID card or anything else you need close to hand.
