Rucksack review: Oxford Aeropack Xpert

1 of 1

Oxford Aeropack Xpert, £40 (£36.09 on MCN shop)
Miles covered/time:
3500/6 months

What’s good? For any load short of my hefty security chain and Abus padlock I favour a rucksack.

This is the least-niggly, most bike-optimised one I've tried.

The big, flat straps do up easily and securely in an x-shape across my chest with a single clasp, it's big enough to hold my 17" laptop and lunch when unexpanded and it'll even swallow a helmet when expanded.

Zips are completely wind-tight and it hasn't even leaked yet.

What's not? Like any rucksack it's a pain in the neck, shoulders and back with a really heavy load.

Rating: 4/5
