Also know that these are very large packs in comparison to models from other manufacturers of similar capacity. Osprey put a ton of cushion in these packs, to protect the laptop and other items. To achieve the proper capacity size, they had to greatly increase the physical size.
But the commuter specific features are well done, and the shoulder straps are very comfortable. Awesome guarantee as well.
I'm coming at this from a "fast-packing" perspective - I want something that is just big enough for the essentials, and not any bigger or heavier. I don't carry a lot of extraneous stuff and the stuff I do bring is usually the smallest I can find - small laptop, iPad mini, short cords, tiny toothpaste tubes, etc. So I want a full-featured pack that is on the small side. I also want a pack for work travel that I can easily repurpose as a daypack for sightseeing or day-hiking if I have downtime on the road (so it should be rugged, have a waist strap, hold a lot of water, etc).
The Osprey Momentum 26 pack is exactly what I've been looking for.
First the basics - the backpack follows the usual formula of:
- Full-length, shallow, pocket for the laptop with smaller sleeve inside for iPad
- Large, deeper interior pocket for most of the rest of your stuff, with some interior pockets to secure smaller items
- A few smaller pockets on the outside for quick access to phone, camera, etc
- Pockets along the outside for bottles
Things that make this pack superior to the rest:
- Build quality.Read more ›
Two main criteria I had were:
1. Non Netted back (it's really hard to find one without netting)
2. Some kind of helmet carrying system
Osprey had both, and also has lots of pockets which I love to carry various gadgets, headphones, pens, etc. Plus an amazing lifetime warranty! And a rain cover! You can attach your bike blinker light to the bag too, which is awesome! Makes you much more visible on the road.
I was able to fit my 15" MacBook Pro in the main compartment, but it made room in the next pocket a little too tight for my iPad...
It looks great! I chose "Carbide" which actually looks not as black as in the picture, it's actually dark grey. Very slim and comfortable to wear. Stiff backing doesn't bother me, my back doesn't sweat because I don't ride too far (about 3 miles each way).
Of course there are some down sides to this bag, thus the 4 stars.
Biggest negative for me is helmet mount. It works great, and holds helmet secure but it prevents you from accessing two zipped pockets :( I found it to be extremely annoying, when I need to get my headphones or train ticket. If they made it just a little lower it would be perfect. But if you attach your helmet by lowest of it's holes, you might get one of the pockets somewhat accessible.Read more ›

Great backpack. Very well designed. Functional and strong. Use it everyday. But continously wearing it makes the back sweaty.Published on July 8, 2014 by Harsh
This thing is an ugly light gray, not the cool-looking carbon black in the picture. Picture is much sexier than what I have, which is a crumpled, misshapen eyesore. Read morePublished on May 23, 2014 by Jim
