As a result of luggage — usually ignored however stuffed with our essential electronics — are the outward representations of our techie types, and we put far too little thought into the place we hold our most prized possessions.

The Osprey Momentum 32 impresses. I used it throughout a muddy week at Beaumont Scout Reservation and it carried out flawlessly as a rugged, bike-ready backpack. It stood tall within the depressing rain and unbearable warmth that engulfed northern Ohio throughout the tenting journey. If it could actually face up to these circumstances, it could actually face up to an city commute.

For these following alongside, Bag Week 2018 ended every week in the past. That’s okay. Take into account this as bonus content material. Earlier than publishing a overview on this bag, I needed to check it throughout a tenting journey, and final week’s journey supplied an awesome testing floor for this bag.

Osprey markets the Momentum 32 as an on a regular basis pack with a tilt towards bicyclists. There’s a clip on the skin to carry a motorcycle helmet and a big pocket on the backside to retailer bicycle sneakers — or simply one other pair of sneakers. The again panel options nice air flow and the shoulder straps have additional give to them because of built-in elastic bands.

It’s the ventilated again panel that makes the pack stand out to me. It’s ventilated to an excessive. Have a look at me. I’m in my mid-thirties and on a quest to go to all of Michigan’s craft breweries. I sweat and it was sizzling throughout my time with this bag. This bag went a good distance in serving to to maintain the sweat below management — way more so than some other commuter bag I’ve used.

There was by no means a time after I was utilizing this bag that I felt like a sweaty dad, despite the fact that the temp reached into the 90s. I recognize that.

The inner storage is ample. There’s an excellent quantity of pockets for devices and paperwork. There’s even a big pocket on the backside to retailer a pair of sneakers and hold them separated from the remainder of the bag’s contents. As any good commuter bag, it has a key chain on a retractable twine so you will get entry to your keys with out detaching them from the bag.

The bag additionally has a rain cowl, which saved me in a number of shock rain showers. The rain cowl itself is nothing particular; loads of luggage have comparable covers. This cowl is simply a part of a profitable system used on this bag.

The Osprey Momentum is a improbable bag. It stands aside from different luggage with excessive air flow on the again panel and options bike owner and commuters will recognize.
