With 40 minutes being our Europe-wide average commute time our daily commute is as much a significant activity as your monthly hike or you weekly park-run. 40 minutes a commute, 5 days a week equates to nearly 2 full weeks of pure commuting every year. 2 weeks every single year performing a very specific activity. Why wouldn’t you treat this activity like any other? All kit has a job to do and all Osprey Packs are designed to do a job.
The Radial Kickstand provides the specific solution to the active commute; The cyclists trying to make good time, the walkers and joggers trying to dodge puddles and get out of the rain. The Radial aims to take the work out of the commute and do its job for you.
It features an AirSpeed™ inspired trampoline suspended mesh backsystem that allows for great breathability when on the go. The ventilated stretch yoke and load lifters on the harness combined with the elastic hipbelt wing mean that the pack is able to move closely with the body, offering extra flexibility and comfort. With an integrated kickstand, the pack stays upright by itself, so you don’t have to prop the pack up when accessing your gear or reaching for your phone. The LidLock™ bike helmet attachment means you can store your helmet on the outside of the pack. The padded laptop and tablet sleeve keep your tech safe and the built in high visibility raincover can be deployed when conditions take a turn for the worse.
So however you travel, and whatever the commute, be sure to spend your 2 weeks wisely.
