The EXPED Centrum 20, like its top-loading sibling, Metro, is deceptively sleek without leaving out the features we all need for the commute. Borrowing ideas from EXPED’s mountain packs, it fits the body well and carries everyday urban gear efficiently. Centrum’s main opening is via a long, over-the-top zipper, which opens wide to reveal the contents quickly and make them fully accessible. Two expanding side pockets down low on each side hold water bottles, sunglass cases or a wet umbrella. On one side, a zipper-accessed, fully padded sleeve opens the length of the pack and will stow a 15” laptop. On top, a small slot pocket provides a place for wallet, keys and other small items. Four short daisy chains on the back of the pack are good places to attach a bike light, and a removable reflective strap enhances safety at night. Inside the fully-lined main compartment are multiple pockets for organizing small items, paperwork or a hydration pack, which can be suspended from a velcro strap (hydration tube exits through central port between shoulder straps). The suspension system is anchored to EXPED’s thermo-formed foam panel, which protects the wearer from items being carried, helps to stabilize the load and dries rapidly. Ergonomically contoured shoulder straps, well-proven on our mountain packs, include a sternum strap with sliding anchors for a custom fit and excellent load control. An easily removable hip strap further stabilizes heavier loads when necessary. A haul loop is anchored to the top of the pack at the shoulder straps, making even heavy loads graspable. All of Centrum’s fabrics are polyurethane coated, which makes the pack water resistant. For waterproofness in sustained rain, a snug fitting EXPED Rain Cover sheds the storm.
