This lightweight Castelli cycling pack is perfectly suited to a commute to work or a full days ride. Made from water and stain resistant materials, the Gear Backpack will repel light showers and dirt splashes should wash off easily with a cloth. The zippers are water resistant too, preventing drips from seaping in - it's no good arriving to work with soggy uniform.
Dual density, 3D mesh padding supports the back and adds a little ventilation, so you don't ride hot and bothered, and instead, comfortable. Features such as: a padded laptop sleeve, tablet sleeve, external bottle pocket, adjustable straps and helmet/light loops further help you out, for more space and added safety.
Designed for everyday use, this highly versatile, organised and easily accessible backpack will be the one you turn to, even when the weather's fine and your bike's in the shed.

Q. What do a 19th century Italian tailor, a designer for the Milan Ballet and the first ever lycra cycling shorts have in common?
A. They are all part of a rich 140 year history that's led to today's most recognised brand in cycling: Castelli.
Throw in a heart attack on a famous Italian climb, family feuds, Olympic gold medals and controversy in the pro peloton and it begins to sound more like a Sicilian soap opera than the backdrop to a cycling brand. But then again Castelli is no ordinary brand.
Today, Castelli's scorpion emblem is arguably the single most recognised in cycling. Iconic is an overused word these days, but the Castelli brand surely qualifies.
We first discovered Castelli on our year long ride through the Americas in 2010, when our founder Liz (pictured) wore Castelli shorts and loved them, so stocking them seemed an obvious choice. But we're almost as captivated by the story behind the name as the kit itself! For the full Castelli story (it's quite a story!), click here.
