Boblbee Megalopolis Aero review

Beautifully made, tough and lighter than it looks

BikeRadar score3.5/5

You’re unlikely to find a better constructed bag than this 25-litre rigid backpack, no matter what you’re prepared to pay. It’s beautifully made and not as heavy as it looks.

It’s strong too; CE certified as a back protector for motorbiking and skiing, making it an obvious choice for high risk fast city commuting with delicate gear.

Inside, there’s a multi-pocketed organiser that’ll hold a laptop and all your odds and sods, and the top secures with a bungee and clip to render the whole thing weatherproof.

The harness is comfortable and doesn’t get sweaty, especially on the lower back where the shaped wings and waist strap keep everything solid.

The rigid shell means that the bag can’t pull out of shape for large cargo, so it doesn’t hold quite as much as you might expect.

A wide range of accessories are available too, making the Megalopolis a versatile option.
