This sounds EXACTLY like what I do. Until I de-squeaked my boots.

I leave my work shoes at my desk and commute with my A*'s and my leather jacket.

I use the A*s tech aero back pack.... Decent water proofing but I have some complaints on regarding its rain "cover". It has more than enough room for all my crap.... I've done a couple of long trips with it ....it was comfortable enough.

That's not carbon... sorry, bro... rocking fake carbon is the same as stuffing a sock in your pants...

If you don't hang your balls out there and just do it, you'll never know what might have happened... -- Valentino Rossi

Unlike one made of concrete, the wall of adversity will eventually fall when we exert enough pressure. -- Max Edge
