(SPOT.ph) Biking is one one of the most, if not the most, versatile modes of transportation. You can use a two wheel to pedal to work, go on a leisurely ride to nearby verdant terrain, or head to the next block to run some errands. But whether you’re going backpacking or just dropping by the store, you will most likely need something to hold your water bottles, an extra shirt, a few emergency bike gears, and other stuff you need—face shields not included. So we took the liberty of rounding up a couple of cool bike bags we spotted perfect for your next trip.

Rando Bag (P5,950) from Leon Denim

Proudly made locally, Leon Denim's Rando Bag takes inspiration from a long-distance cycling sport called "randonneuring." Bikers who join such an event, called "randonnée," and complete the whole course are called "randonneurs." Since it usually lasts all day, athletes have to make sure that they have everything they need in their bag: food and water, tools, a set of clothes, and even maps—thus the Rando Bag's many compartments and pockets. Made of strong duck canvas and leather reinforcements, it has a top flap with clear plastic where you can put a map or a list of things to buy on your errand run; front-facing compartments, where you can place your phone and energy snacks; and side slots for easy-to-reach items. Don't worry about putting in a lot of things. The bag has inner hard-plastic stiffeners to retain its shape.
