You can feel the passion

I purchased the Peloton Asphalt a few months ago and wow this is an impressive bag. Before ordering, spent about a year of researching potential bags and was fortunate enough to visit and inspect many of big brands near me (Chrome Industries, Mission workshop, Road Runner, Inside Line Equipment and Timbuk2). I ended up taking the risk and ordered the Peloton without having actually inspected in person and the risk paid off. Here are my thoughts:

First, the quality and build of this backpack is literally second to none of the brands mentioned above. Like it legitimately feels like the Peloton Asphalt was built to survive a nasty motorcycle crash, or an atomic bomb.

Second, the attention to detail is unreal. Every time I pick up this back, I can feel the pride of workmanship and design that was put into this bag. The people behind this company truly put their souls into this produce. Everything has purpose. Every detail is so meticulously accounted for, ergonomics and everything.

Third, this company is still looking to improve. One of my reservations with all of the bike messenger bag brands was all of them used velcro, including LBB. But when my bag showed up, they had replaced the velcro with very thoughtfully placed magnets! Hundreds of times better -- I absolutely love it. So there is good chance that if you order one of their bags, it will be even better than what is shown in these videos or on their website.

Overall, this is a pretty amazing bag. Although pricey, it is definitely shocking that it is as cheap as it is compared to Chrome and Mission. The bag I would have purchased if not the Peloton was the Blck Chrm. While Chrome feels almost as indestructible, it does not feel like Chrome is at the same design level as LBB and I am very satisfied with my purchase. I think once people in America begin discovering this brand, it definitely has the chance to shake up Chrome and Mission. Highly recommend.

Quality product

I’ve had the bag for about a year now, it was used as my main commuter bag in Toronto for a year, where I didn’t have a car and the bag was put through rigorous paces of every day transit commute, all weather conditions (including crazy snow storms), bus, train and airplane travel. Fit, finish and material quality are extremely solid, this bag is a real tank. My criticisms after extensive use are as follows: the large flap of the front admin pocket has magnetic closures. While magnets are strong enough to hold the pocket closed in a light to medium load, in a high load situation the flap pops out when the bag bulges out. Workaround for this is to run the roll top straps all the way down to the bottom of the bag to hold down the pocket. Shoulder straps are awesome in light to medium loads, but not comfortable in medium to heavy loads when worn for a long time. Definitely wear the hip belt if carrying any significant loads for more than 2 hours. Main criticism is the size and width. The bag can hold a ton but it can benefit from a size down version. It’s marketed to cyclists and motorcyclists, but I wouldn’t take it on a motorcycle for anything other than very short low speed rides. The bag’s width creates drag from the front and even more so at oblique angles. It was apparent even on bicycle rides. It really needs a size down and a slimmer profile. Other than that, the bag is an absolute beast for commuting and travel, it feels indestructible. Water guard zippers are very impressive and functional, everything on this bag is overbuilt to last a lifetime.

100% Perfect Bag

I've had this bag now for more than 6 months. I was blown away when I first got it, but I wanted to wait before reviewing to make sure it was the real deal. I'm telling you, this bag takes anything I throw at it and still looks brand new. Trust me, I tried plenty of other bags. Timbuk2, Chrome, Manhattan Portage...but every time I started looking at larger bags, I had to sacrifice versatility or organization. Not with the Asphalt. I don't own a car, so I need a bag that can carry everything from a few notebooks, a week's worth of groceries, or awkward packages. The strap system is incredible. The rear pockets are perfect for easy access without having to take the bag off. ...Honestly, I could rave about this bag for hours. Stop compromising. Get this bag.
