I’ve had the opportunity to test the Incase Range Large backpack for the last three weeks, and in that time, it has gained a spot on my list of favorite backpacks. The reasons are many, but first up is its size. For my daily commute I typically carry my laptop, a pair of shoes or boots, food, my daily planner, and a bunch of bike tools. This bag handles all this perfectly. As a bonus, I discovered that even fully loaded, I can still put my Catlike helmet in at the very top, and still zip the bag closed. The compartments are really well thought out on the Range. The laptop loads in from the side into a dedicated sleeve lined with plush faux-fur. At the front is a velcro flap covering the U-Lock compartment, and at the lower corners are two small zippered compartments perfect for stowing away all the tools needed for on-the-fly bike repair. At the top there is a large zippered opening to access the main compartment. This is the place for the shoes, the daily planner, the jacket, and anything else you can think of. It also has a storm flap to help protect the contents from the rain. At the top of the large opening, there is a small compartment for business cards, keys, gum, etc. As I said, the size is perfect, but even better is the fact that the bag does not look massive, but instead looks quite small. It’s a welcome optical illusion that may be due in part to its incredibly clean design. There are no straps fluttering around, just a simple clean shape. There are small reflective details as well as the obligatory blinky light attachment point. Yesterday on my commute home, I loaded an additional two coffee table books in the bag, upping the total weight to 32 lbs. This is not something I recommend, but in a pinch, the bag handled the weight well, and felt pretty good on my shoulders and back. This is a great bag, and at $149.95, the bag is also competitively priced. I highly recommend this bag to those who enjoy simple and functional design.
