    You get what you pay for... Mountain Warehouse stuff is basically disposable / one-season use. I wear shirts and tights from there for commuting and a few items are already starting to fall apart.
    If the Hikelite was a little more bigger (30L+), then I wouldn't have any problem keeping it.
    The size of the 35L was definitely the deciding factor for me. Also found the front top pocket in the Osprey too small, but I really liked the front compression strap to store my raincoat/sweater.
    Will see how the Phoenix 35L fare with daily use, I will be using this strictly for daily commute as for travel I have a 45L Dakine and my 32L Jansport.

    Will update you guys to see how it fares next year.

    I've seen them a few times. Usually fairly easy to spot...
    What happens if you just keep riding?
    I've seen uniformed CP patrolling in the East Village but didnt notice if they were checking speed.
    Wisest decision is not to rip it along the downtown/Bow River area.

    I just ride with swimming shorts and an extra pair of underwear.
    Waterproof hiking shoes keeps my feet mostly dry.

    Nike running tights when it's only drizzling... they dry out quickly at the office

    These waterproof pants from Mountain Warehouse over top if it's really wet (they're cheap)

    These for most days in the winter https://www.amazon.com/Mountain-Ware.../dp/B074JKQKCS
    They were good to about -15C (they were also cheap... $10 on clearance). I'm always pulling loose threads off them and I think the leg zippers are ready to self destruct though - hence the comment on MW quality.

    Winter tights plus the waterproof overpants if it's really cold or really wet.

    I hate that most waterproof overpants have ridiculously wide legs, and anything that's tailored to cyclists gets pricey quickly.
