In addition to its collision preventing properties, the Barrage is waterproof and can expand from 22 to 34 liters to accommodate whatever you find on your commute. The Barrage also features a sternum strap with a classic seatbelt-style buckle and laptop sleeve that can handle 15 inches of MacBook Pro. And for the times when it gets really wet out there, there are dual compartments to separate the wet from the dry.
