IL Equipment Flaptop Backpack This backpack can fit 32 liters of gear inside watertight compartments, all while strapping down everything from bike frames to tires to large packages.


Whether you’re an actual bike messenger or not, if you carrying gear while pedaling the streets, you’ll want a killer backpack to support you throughout every ride. That’s exactly what you’ll get with the IL Equipment Flaptop.

Armed with a spacious main compartment, you can fit a whole load of packages inside the bag, making it a suitable backpack for coming home with a week’s worth of grocery in tow. Whether you’re hauling drinks to a beach party, a couple dozen old action figures to a flea market, or a bunch of boxes for deliveries, this bag will lock your cargo down securely, while you zip through traffic in whatever urban patch of the world you call home.


The IL Equipment Flaptop measures 12 x 8 x 8 inches, leaving enough room to accommodate a full 32 liters of storage. Aside from the weatherproof main compartment, you get a pair of deep three-dimensional pockets on the outside (big enough to fit shoes or water bottles), a weatherproof zippered laptop sleeve under the flap, and a second set of buckles that you can use to attach large items, like bike frames, tires, and large boxes, to the bag.


Since being on the road means being subject to serious abuse, the bag comes with 1000D Cordura construction and a ballistic nylon bottom to ensure durable function. Features include contoured shoulder straps, removable sternum and waist straps, and integrated compression straps to keep cargo from moving.

Available now, the IL Equipment Flaptop is priced at $280.
