Banjo Brothers Commuter Backpack Review
The Banjo Brothers Commuter Backpack was designed to fill the need for commuters that travel longer distances cycling back and forth to work. It has two padded straps which is unlike the traditional messenger bag that would be slung over the shoulder with a single strap. It has a large, main compartment to keep things safe and dry from the elements.
The main compartment of this commuter backpack is capable of holding up to 1500 cu. in. of stuff and the cover is held in place by a secure nylon buckle. The exterior of backpack features a 2 layer design that keeps the water from getting in. When the cover is closed it forms a waterproof seal and the interior liner is replaceable in case there is a leak.
The two padded shoulder straps are positioned just right on the backpack so that it rides lower on the back for more comfort and so that it is easier to see around it in traffic.
The Banjo Brothers designers had the safety of individuals that carried this pack in mind when added the reflective strips of material on the back and the small loop located at the lower edge of the pack which is perfect to attach a small light facing backwards.
