EVOC makes some bomber gear and this Duffle Backpack 26 is a simple, water resistant option for lugging my day to day gear around. The basic design has a padded laptop sleeve with a aluminum hook closure.


  • Waterproof and 100% PVC-free upper material
  • Up to 30L capacity
  • Aluminum buckle
  • Laptop sleeve

26L of main compartment storage allows for enough room to stuff a half-shell helmet, along with three mesh pouches and one zippered pocket to separate smaller items. Two of those mesh pockets are situated to hold drink containers upright, just in case they decide to leak. The inner compartment is waterproof from the laptop sleeve too.

This isn’t designed as a mountain bike pack necessarily, but the sternum buckle keeps the padded shoulder straps in place well enough for a few hops off of curbs between bike paths.
