Make no mistake; The Weatherproof Commuter is an adventure-proof bag built for daily use. Whether you’re seaside in New Zealand or headed to the gym, our daily bag solution is designed to provide exactly what you need. We’ve equipped our Commuter Backpack with full compartment access for horizontal packing, a comfort-lined laptop holster, and mobile charging capabilities.
We streamlined the traditional backpack; eliminating the bulk, reducing the waste, and creating the ideal bag for your daily needs. With an interior pocket designed to house The Ridge Power Bank and external USB ports for convenient charging, The Commuter Backpack is perfect for keeping your most essential devices charged while on-the-go.
It's a nice backpack with a nice amount of space for laptop storage, using it to transport a 14 inch laptop for work but there's still leftover space so you can fit a larger one if desired. The padding in the laptop compartment is nice and cushions the laptop well. There are two zippers for the main backpack storage section, one that opens closer to the front and one that opens to the back. The back zipper is handy for storing things in a mesh pocket in the back while the front zip provides easy access to the inner zipper compartments in the front of this area. The external front zip sections are nice with the zippers covered under a lip which makes unwanted access more difficult and noticeable while also providing greater weather protection.
The downside I noticed is that the back design/air space/moisture wick doesn't operate that effectively and can still heat up and hold sweat on hot days.
Overall it's a great bag and I'm very happy to have it, looking forward to using it for a long time.
I use this as my go-bag for my common photography gadgets and business needs.
Overall the bag is great, the fact that it is waterproof is a great help living in Wales. The powerbank connector is great as now I don't have to have a powerbank in my pocket. The very small downside is that it usn't quite as big as I thought it would be. It would have helped greatly if the capacity in litres was included in the dimensions
So far so good, the bag is really good quality and seems to cover every eventuality. I’m most impressed with the laptop/tablet section, as your device doesn’t need a case as the compartment is so well cushioned and protected. I’ve always used Stone Island bags, but the quality of the Ridge Commuter is far superior.
