"Ultimate bike pack" (Posted on 01/12/2016)
I really like all the rooms, it can stand up, side room for water bottle and the side pocket with the elastic for the key (I think) Thank you for making the ultimate bike pack.
"The best pack for bike commuting" (Posted on 23/11/2016)
I'm 32 and in the warmer time (from roughly April to around October) I ride my road bike everyday to and from work - total 40 kms.
As I am some sort of a "digital nomad" I carry around all my tech gear - laptop, tablet, smartphone, powerbank, a plethora of cables, headphones, external hard drive and so on.
Also I carry a spare tube, bike tools and a lock.
In addition I have to carry my normal clothes for the office (thankfully no suit). Something to eat and drink is also in the pack.
You see: A lot to carry.
Before I switched to the Radial 26 I used a Chrome bag. Stylish, yes - but uncomfortable when you ride with it fully packed.
Something odd presses against your back, there is no padding whatsoever... It's just not comfortable. In addition it's just one giant "room" with a tiny zip-pocket on the front. No organisation possible.
I searched long and hard for a backpack which fits my needs. Which is: A lot of space, internal organisation (!), durability.
Enter the Radial 26.
I have this backpack now for approximately 3 months and I am more than happy with it.
The internal organisation is awesome - so many pockets to put stuff in. Everything has its place and I don't have to search for my gear.
The laptop compartment is really nice. Sometimes I forget that I have a laptop in my pack and I place the pack pretty rude on the floor. The laptop is safe inside the Radial and doesn't take damage.
What I really like: The kickstand. I remember when I was young I hated it that the backpacks fell over. Or you had to lean it against a wall/chair/table.
Take off the Radial, place it on the ground and presto - it stands. Really nice feature.
The raincover is also great. It's a matter of seconds to put it over the pack. Like... 10 seconds at the most.
There is one thing I do not like: The position adjustment straps. The are made of elastic material and... I don't know. It gives the pack a little a wobbly feeling.
Overall this is a fantastic pack and worth the money. Highly recommended!

Thanks very much for your review, we're happy to hear that you're enjoying your new Radial 26!
The stretch yoke and load-lifters on the top of the harness (along with the elasticated section of the hipbelt) are designed to allow the pack to move along with the motion of the body, especially when cycling or moving fast. It also allows the harness and hipbelt to extend and contract along with your breathing, allowing the pack to remain stable and close to the body. If the pack's feeling a little wobbly, it's possible to tighten the yoke which will likely help with the pack's stability.

"Good but not worth the price" (Posted on 10/09/2016)
I think this bag is way overpriced, it's a great product but i think maybe aimed at people who have money to waste. When you compare this to other companies i would say it has a slight edge in design and look but at more than double the price of my last bag i can't help but think i have bought a designer bag.Osprey Customer Service, 13/09/2016
Thank you for your feedback. With regards to your comment about value for money, I think it is important to distinguish the differences between the Radial and other Everyday & Commute packs. While organisation plays an important part in this pack, it is an active commute pack that has a number of additional features, including: a raincover, LidLock, the integrated kickstand and Airspeed-inspired ventilated backsystem that ensures the pack can be used in all situations and especially when commuting via bike; these are features that you do not get on such packs as Quasar and Nebula.
