Why we made this
Our solution to wet weather commuting — the Wētā is how you can keep your gear dry on the daily cycle to work.
Designed for all-weather commuting, the Wētā is a versatile backpack featuring a waterproof (non-submersible) heat-welded body, roll-top closure and ventilated back panel — ideal for the 'sweaty cyclist' or sudden showers. A front stretch pocket (not waterproof) and internal zip pocket allow you to stash small essentials, while the comfortable harness features a removable hip belt and anatomically-shaped shoulder straps for on-the-go comfort. Small side loops offer further gear attachment potential, while a bike light loop helps to keep you visible in low or limited light. This commuter pack has a 24 litre capacity. We've also included a small repair patch in the front stretch pocket — for an effective repair, follow these steps: clean and dry the area you're repairing, rough up the surface (like you would do for a bicycle puncture repair) and apply patch (cut to size) with Gear Aid Seam Grip Sealer Adhesive. Allow adequate drying time.
Heat-welded nylon outer is waterproof (non-submersible)

Mesh back panel for maximum ventilation

Two zipped pockets — one on the front (not waterproof) and one inside

You are best to clean your pack with a natural, non-detergent soap and a soft-bristled brush
Suitable soap types are: pure soap, vegetable soap and Nikwax® Tech Wash®
Rinse the pack well and dry it in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight
Do not put your pack in the washing machine as this will void your warranty
Always try to keep the zip teeth clean — wash with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics
Do not tumble dry, iron or dryclean

Bigger than it looks!
I bought a Weta the day it arrived in my local store for my motorcycle/bicycle commute, its got more functional space than 28L bags I've owned because its one large main compartment. Doesn't get sweaty on the back because of the mesh pad separating you from the pvc. Great bag that doesn't only get used on rainy days.
