How many sandwiches do you think you could get into that pack, Rusty?... I'm thinking at least 6, maybe 8 of those Subway twelve inch subs.

It started as needing to take a sandwich or 12, but slowly drifted into needing my bike paraphernalia with me for various circumstances. My "bike bag" has the following items in it at all times...
  • sunglasses
  • riding gloves
  • headache medicine
  • cable lock
  • passenger handle-belt
  • terrycloth
I also have plenty of room for water, food, and light shopping.

C'mon, sko sko sko!

Similar to Rusty I use a backpack, the contents of which include:

- 13 " laptop and power adaptor
- files
- work shoes
- 900 mm sheathed bike chain and heavy duty padlock

Most days I pick up a sandwich (or two) on the fly.

Because my riding suit is all black I cover the pack with a high vis sheath to help stop getting rear-ended at night.

I also use a backpack. Mine is the Icon Old Skool backpack- Icon Old Skool Backpack - Casual - Motorcycle Superstore

I like it because of the snap in the mid-chest region to make sure I don't have to worry about a shoulder strap slipping down my shoulder/arm as I ride. Also, the front of the shoulder straps have a strip of reflective material on them. I can fit my riding pants (when I get to work) or a couple groceries in it comfortably.

I'm a fan and for the same reasons you list. No staining, easy clean up, and no worries in the microwave.

Any half decent waterproof 30L rucksack is very practical for carrying stuff on your bike. That's what I used to use before I got my 45L GIVI top box.

I'm looking into getting Tourmaster Select Tail bag to hold my lunches and other things. 23 Liters of space is fairly large with works for me and also slim.
