Re: Commuting to work or school on your Bike

Use a basic oakley backpack to put my laptop/books in.

I use both bike and car to go to school and work. All depending on the weather and the season.

Yea I leave my work shoes at my cubicle. I just change in the office though, with other coworkers passing through and stuff...

Re: Commuting to work or school on your Bike

I use a backpack, the ICON Squad II. Decent enough, but I do like the reflective pieces on it as I am normally riding in the dark becasue I start work early normally. It fits a full set of my Combat uniform (daily work uniform) andmy work boots, tablet, lunch etc.

Never had a problem with it and its actually very comfortable. I normally just change at work into uniform because the Combat pants dont really provide any protection if I went down (NOMEX not KEVLAR), be good if I was in a fire though....lol.

I've been down in my ABUs and that back pack before. The uni actually held up pretty well. I was only going around 15 though

Thats sucks, luck you were only doing 15, I prefer to wear my riding jeans or pants instead of the uni for sure. Plus, the digicam doesn't match the Yami-Blue
