Thread: Commuting Packs

I just recently moved and am trying to get into using my bike for commuting as well. I unfortunately have to wear a suit most days to work and am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for packs or bags (or similar) that can keep a suit and clothes wrinkle free on the commute in. I am unwilling to ride in the suit as it's a bit too long a ride for that. Any thoughts or recommendations are appreciated.

Just bring a bunch of clothes to work on the day you're not riding your bike and stash them in your office. I'm in a similar boat and no amount of careful shirt-folding will keep my shit wrinkle free after time in the backpack.

the packing trick (aside from a pack recommendation) is to use a plastic bag you get from the dry cleaners.
ideally, one for each garment so they slide well
then roll everything up and stash in your backpack, pannier, valise, picinic basket, whatever...
try not to pack it too tightly
it works pretty well

When I was running my bike to work, I swooped one of the Knog garmet bags and it worked awesome... I might still have it around if you're interested..
