If you are searching for a sophisticated commuter pack that will go equally well in the boardroom as on the bike, look no further than the new Cyber Port from Osprey. The super sleek and minimalist exterior hides a wealth of high tech organization that will keep you connected on your daily commute.
The padded front zip concealment panel opens up to expose a touchscreen compatible TPU film window pocket for storing your iPad. This enables you to check email while riding the subway or catch up on your latest TV shows, all without removing your tablet from the pouch. For those of you who bike commute, Osprey Europe has cleverly developed a free app that turns your tablet screen into a blinky bike light as you ride. Sadly it looks to be only available in Android at the moment.
The main zippered compartment houses a padded laptop pouch for all you technology double dippers and an organizer sleeve for your papers, pens, keys, and other small objects. There is even an additional tablet pocket in case you don't want to store it out front. A small, water-resistant zip pocket at the top of the commuter pack is lined with scratch-free fabric for safe storage of your phone and sunglasses.
The Cyber Port has been my go to carry-on for all my travels over the summer. I don't really use the front TPU window, as I pair my iPad with a keyboard cover and would personally rather just pull the tablet out of the pack to use. Instead, I store papers in the front pocket, which I guess defeats the whole purpose but seems to work well for me.
The Cyber Port is big enough to take on a quick overnight trip. For Interbike, I was able to pack in everything I needed for two days in Vegas.
The Osprey Cyber Port commuter pack retails for $99, comes in 4 different colors, and is available now.
