    The idea of a large-capacity backpack is hideous.

    I mean really! Can't people just like, ugh, not need to carry so much stuff! [​IMG]

    I am kind of curious how Conne defines 'goods'....

    Or rather, how many bottles of liquor can one safely hold in an average sized messenger bag while traveling at 13mph on a bike?

    just attach one of those folding baskets to your bike. grocery bags fit into the baskets perfectly

    Much easier than having a gallon of milk in your expedition size backpack.

    I cannot believe you're even asking. Obviously RafxEastpak.


    Also, the Timbuk2 messenger bag I have in medium holds a lot of stuff, and they have larger sizes.


    Messenger bags are so ghey.

    I must agree with Fran here.

    Ortlieb. Worked perfectly for me for two bike-messengering years. Machine washable. [​IMG]

    I can't do messenger bags, they are rather gay.

    Ideally I'd drag a few Goyard steamer trunks behind me but that's slightly impractical.


    You're a dumbass. I have a Chrome bag and I think it is awesome. I've always had good luck with your standard fair from some place like REI or something. Get yourself a large internal frame or daypack-- whatever is the best price.

    Yes, but so are most other backpacks.

    Well, I guess it's either a backpack or a new LCD monitor. I'll probably go with the latter and use a shitty Jansport or something.

    I see you more with a LeSportsac. It would be oh-so-darling.

    Timbuk2 Lex Large or X Large. Both of them have serious hauling portage and are are built tough. I have the large Lex backpack. Good for an urban environment where a mountain pack is impractical or just too big.

    If you have a week's worth of groceries and you're more a mile's walk from the store. Carrying home the stuff in both of your hands isn't really an appealing proposition. You may need to ferry more stuff than you think and extra cubic space always helps!
