SealLine Urban Backpack


SealLine Urban Backpack – breathable, waterproof cycling backpack

The SealLine Urban Backpack provides serious water protection for bike commuters and mountain bikers. A simple roll-top closure keeps the bag watertight and an eco-friendly, PVC-free coated body keeps water out.

The ergonomic shoulder straps, hideaway waist belt, and sternum strap provide a comfortable, supportive fit whether you are cruising around town or hitting the trails and a breathable, waterproof back panel keeps you comfy in any weather. An external pocket lets you easily access your stuff while stopped at traffic lights without having to take off your bag.

The Urban Backpack comes in both small (17 liters) and large (37 liters) so you can get the best-sized pack to fit your needs. The pack also features a Modular Accessory Pocket that allows you to attach other handy add-ons like a cell phone case or zip pocket.
