    Maybe a leg bag(not the catheter type) would suit you better. I have one i use, it takes my lock, glasses, inhaler, waterproofs, wallet, phone and keys with room to spare. Very comfortable.

    Any 30-40 litre backpack with a comfy waistband and chest strap should do the trick. Avoid Cargo branded ones for bikers...I had one and it fell apart after one trip to the IOM (strap ripped off whilst on the motorway). Replaced under warranty and now I use it as a back-up for light things only. It's crap. Ex military ones are ok but the best for comfort and functionality are the purpose designed daypacks from any walking/out-doorsy type of shop. I have several, including a 50l (when expanded) one from Mountain warehouse (50litre High model but they do a 35 as well) with padded waist straps and includes a waterproof inner. Tough as old boots and ideal for the bike. They have a sale on at the minute and their 35 litre one is cheap as chips and highly recommended...they really don't come any tougher or better made:

    No not at all. Basically fits from hip to just above knee, more comfy than a backpack and more practical for access. I got mine off amazon for 19quid.
