A rucksack is so convenient on and off the bike and now ‘urban survival equipment’ specialist Respro has come up with the ultimate accessory to make your backpack ultra bike-friendly: the Hump.

It fastens around your rucksack’s waist with a strap, and at the sides with its elasticated edges. Not only does the Hump make your rucksack instantly waterproof, but the range of bright colours available also improves your chances of being seen by other road users during the day. Its reflective details improve night time visibility, too.

18 different colour options are on offer, including hi-viz options. Prices start at £15.99 and they are available now from Amazon, Wiggle and Chain Reaction Cycles.
