"Think a small dry bag would be just as good & half the price.
I'd say it's sized about; 6" x 3" x 5"
The material is a bit thinner than a dry bag so this is lighter.
Looks and feels pretty waterproof (not tested yet)
It has a shoulder strap & belt loops.
Overall; you get what you pay for, a small quality waterproof first aid pack.

"This backpack is massive, when packed it's too heavy to cycle with, when empty far too bulky, wish I'd ordered the size smaller.
It is a quality product, water tight velcro roll top & comfy to carry - it would make a great pack if carrying bulky light packages, but as a daily commuter it's far to big.
Large pockets are easy to lose stuff in, adjusting straps are strangely long, no idea why Chome would design it this way.
If you want a gigantic backpack then this is for you! (quality=expensive)
If you want a reasonable weather resistant commuter backpack I'd shop around, maybe one of the Ortlieb backpacks. or this a size smaller, defo try before you buy if you can ...

"The Halo Aerorage Track Front Wheel is great value for money ... decent looking rims and smooth hubs ... individually boxed and delivered promptly!
The spokes are always black regardless of colour option & don't forget to buy rim tape.

I'm confused as to the tubular bit. Do i still need a normal inner tube or is it a glue on job. It look like a clincher from the picture

they're normal tires that require a normal inner tube.
