One of the slight downsides to motorcycling can be luggage space, especially on a sports bike. But the new SW-Motech Pro Cosmo backpack could make it easier with up to 17 litres of storage space split across four compartments, so everything isn’t getting jumbled up and thrown about.
Along with a main area, you also get a section which can fit a laptop or hydration pack, a zipped mesh area for smaller items to avoid losing them in the bottom of your bag, and a section in the lid for anything you might need to access quickly. And the Pro Cosmo also has a MOLLE system if you want to attach more accessories on the outside.
There are plenty of options on the market for backpacks, but a good example is one that you can wear for long rides without aches and pains. The SW-Motech Pro Cosmo backpack features a pre-curved back panel covered in air-permeable mesh. Along with a hip belt to spread the load, the shoulder straps are broad and padded, and are secured with a quick-lock system so you can remove the pack without taking your gloves off.
The SW-Motech Pro Cosmo Backpack costs £122 including VAT, which is a similar price to most of the better rucksacks on the market. And if you’re regularly commuting and need to carry your work gear, or going on longer trips, investing a reasonable amount in a good backpack is definitely a wise move if you want to be able to walk normally at the end of your journey.
