im considering selling my car so i'll be left with only the bikes as transportation. at least for a little while. anyways for those who have ridden in HARD rain with a backpack, does water get inside at all? i have one of those Targus laptop bags that i bring to work everyday, and then take home. im a little concerned especially now being in the rainy season.

I have a Mobile Edge laptop bag and it's more water resistant than waterproof. In a downpour it will get damp inside. I just bought a cheap 2 piece rainsuit that was too large and discarded the pants. So now my bag is under the oversized rain jacket and I wear my regular rain overpants with it.

I have a targus laptop bag as well and i have been caught in downpour with it (about 10 minutes in the rain). It kept nearly all of my stuff dry! the outer pockets did get a bit damp though. I do sugguest keeping a plastic bag that would fit your laptop to be stowed as well. If you expect rain just double bag it to be more safe.

Just cover the computer in a thick plastic bag. I'd think you'd be fine after that. If you want something better, you could always get one of those drybags made for kyaking and carry it with you in the case of rain.
