A comfortable rucksack is always an important part of enjoying cycling and the Ergon BD2 got rave reviews in the bike press so I am trying one now.
I rode with a Deuter Bike 1 before (not as in the link, mine is older), and I am pretty happy with it except that my back gets very hot in summer. The Ergon should improve this.
04.2010 Tried and tested in Crete (MTB 340km / 8571m ascent) and I am extremely happy. Although it wasn’t scorching hot, the ascents were steep enough to put on a good sweat and my back stayed cool and relatively dry. Also the link in the shoulder harness makes it virtually unnoticeable when negotiating difficult passages. Next test was in the Pyrenees where it was also hot.
What Ergon say about it:
Featuring the same central Flink® Link ball joint shoulder harness and frame as the popular BD1 series the BD2 is slightly larger and features innovative pocket positions. The BD2 features a large centre opening design with water resistant zippers and includes one small zippered external gear pocket, two large external mesh pockets, two mesh lumbar pockets, one internal zippered pocket and two internal expandable Lycra gear pockets, hydration bladder sleeve, helmet holder and integrated rain cover.
