When I looked at the weather forecast yesterday, it promised a lot of rain for today. And it did rain during the night, but that had passed by the time I left for work, on bicycle. However, there were some deep puddles on the way, and my feet got soaked thoroughly by the splashing water, which wasn't so good.
I returned home from work rather late, and by that time it had started to rain again. And quite a lot of rain it was, so I was completely soaked by the time I got home.
I have had a side bag for my bicycle, but it is now almost completely worn out, doesn't hold shape and leaks a lot, so I need a new one. I looked at the choices, and Ortlieb Back Roller City seems to be promising, it holds water and should be relatively easy to use. Maybe a bit overkill for commuting, but I do get quite a lot of kilometers per year, 1768 km since the beginning of May.
