Rapha Backpack

Rapha Backpack

Following the success of the acclaimed Rapha Backpack comes its larger counterpart. Using the same robust fabrics and ergonomic design, the pack has greater capacity and additional features that make it ideal both for commuting and touring on the bike. Whether it’s a hard slog through the rain to the office, or a week’s randonee in the Alps, this is the pack to choose.
The Large Backpack combines elegant styling with road cycling performance features and functionality. The pack is lightweight and has an increased capacity of 17 litres (Rapha’s regular backpack is 11), large enough for a change of clothes, books, tools and a large laptop (15 inches). The pack has an additional, fold-out compartment of five litres, designed to take a pair of shoes.
The main pack is made from a tough, waterproof fabric and the zips are also waterproof to keep the elements at bay. The plain black exterior has reflective ‘pin dots’ to make a rider more visible when cycling at night and there are also light loops on the straps and rear panel.
Padding in the rear of the pack has been designed to follow the curve of the rider’s spine and chest and waist straps give extra stability when climbing or when the pack is fully loaded. The inside of the pack is fully lined and includes: padded laptop sleeve; fleece-lined sunglasses pocket; tool pocket; pump straps; drink bladder pocket; and pen/ pencil holders. The pack also has two easy-access side pockets for keys and a wallet.
Unfortunately we are unable to gift-wrap the Large Backpack.
"The original is a hard act to follow but there are times when I need to carry a heavier load to or from work, and that's been a problem. Enter the new Large Rapha Backpack."
