Osprey Launches Sleek New Commuter Backpacks

osprey-metron-cycling-commuter-backpackOsprey has introduced two new commuter-style backpacks. Sharing a few of the convenience features of their recently introduced mountain bike packs, such as the LidLock helmet clip, they’re visually pared down and streamlined for city use.

Shown above, the Metron is the sleeker of the two and has a messenger bag inspired flap design. Beyond cycling, it’s just as functional for students and sized for a great little airplane carry-on. Available in Black and Earth in two sizes: Metron 25 $139; Metron 35 $159. Full features include:

  • Integrated Raincover in Lid
  • U-Lock storage pocket
  • Padded laptop sleeve
