Okay, let’s be clear, the single most important piece of gear you need for riding in the rain is a good set of lights. Everything else is secondary. Beyond that, I would definitely get a good waterproof jacket and some warm, waterproof gloves, and install some fenders so you don’t turn your spinal column into a dirt road. Everything else follows by point of preference on whichever body part you’d most like to keep dry.

It’s all well and good if you arrive at your destination dry, but the enthusiasm will be short-lived when you realize you’ve put your laptop through nature’s wash cycle. So whether your preference is panniers, backpacks, or messenger bags, finding one that’s waterproof is key.

Ortlieb, Vaude, Detours, Banjo Bros, Altura, Green Guru, Novara, Chrome Industries, Thule, Rickshaw, Timbuk2, Two Wheel Gear, and Swift Industries all make waterproof panniers, and you can similarly find waterproof backpacks and messenger bags at Osprey and Mission Workshop, as well as most of the brands listed above.

The Osprey Spin 22 is a medium capacity, top loading, flap style day pack. The backpack offers 22L of storage. It is comprised of 420HD heat embossed nylon and 600D pack cloth…

I have been a commuting biker for over 8 years, yet I have never had a proper “biking” backpack. I will never go back to owning a simple “cheap” now that I have used the Osprey. It is fantastic. It’s a cool, trendy, and practical backpack with attitude!

The bag itself is very comfortable to wear, the straps are thick and easily adjustable. The back of the bag is slightly curved making it effective for any style of biker, including road bikers who are more bent over in posture. There is also a light mesh material that runs down the back of the bag, which helps to keep your back cool on a long bike ride.

October 25, 2013
Osprey’s Meridian 22″/ 60L roller bag meets the maximum carry on size for most airlines. This bag has many compartments, like a rear panel that can hold magazines or flip flops, an easily accessible external zip top pocket for liquids, and a detachable daypack for travel documents, lap tops (built-in sleeve), and reading material. Available in three colors.
TELL YOUR FRIENDS:  The Osprey Meridian is roomy, easy to roll, and makes packing for a week-long trip a breeze.
WISH LIST:  I wish that this bag was a little bit smaller, so that I didn’t feel like I was going to be pulled aside to have my bag checked in instead of carry on. A hip strap that took the pressure off my shoulders on the daypack would make it more comfortable on long day trips.
