Lumos Aster Cycling Backpack

Dubbed the safest commuter pack, we have little reason to doubt that the Lumos Aster Cycling Backpack is just that. It’s not obvious at first glance that this bag boasts integrated white front (mounted on the straps) plus side and red rear lights, turn signal indicators controlled by a Bluetooth handlebar remote, and automatic brake lights that illuminate upon sensing deceleration. A large 4,000 mAh battery keeps this plethora of lights going for roughly 10 to 15 hours so you won’t need to ground it often. And if you forgot to recharge, the grid-patterned reflective lining shines bright when shone on by headlights. Aster’s also equipped with a variety of cycling-centric features including an external helmet holder, a rain cover, an ICE information slot with emergency contact info (that will hopefully never serve its purpose), plus holders and compartments for a bottle, bike pump, and U-lock. It’s even got room for a 15-inch laptop plus clothes and shoes.
