The Craft Cadence Backpack is a tough, capable, and cavernous no-frills backpack designed for the commuter cyclist who REALLY doesn't want their stuff to get wet. I like it a lot.
It’s also clear this product is a labour of love and has been very carefully thought out and sourced.
It's easy to see why owner reviews of this bag are glowing. In much the same way, I found myself wanting to use this bag at every opportunity.

Positively reviewed by Road.cc, Cyclist.co.uk, Sportive.com and with a loyal following of dedicated cyclists, this is the best cycling specific waterproof backpack one can find online. All photos below are from our community of real users!
