Best bag for commuters?

Hello everyone
I was wandering if you guys can give me some advice regarding a new bag for my recurve bow. I used to be very close to my archery club, but I moved far away now and I start to commute and I find my old bag really clumsy and seriously too big to carry around the tube.
Which is the best in your opinion? I have a takedown recurve with long rod essentially.
Thanks in advance!

I bought a rucksack for commuting. Vertical carry, so you can get through tube gates with no hassle.
Then lots of companies brought out these specialised archery rucksacks. They aren't always as well designed from a carrying point of view, but easier to use for archery gear.
If you choose a bag which isn't too deep, you can sit while wearing it (available seats on the tube?).

If you haven't got a ton of extra gear the Legend Streamline backpacks are good as they are quite low profile. You can get through tube gates etc. Nice and easily while wearing it.
There is no specific holder for the long rod so I just carried it in the arrow tube.

My son has a cheap Soma one which seems to work well enough.
The only thing I would say is: watch the strap design. Some don't even have a chest strap. I'd kind of consider that the bare minimum requirement, with a hip/waist strap if it's going to be carrying a chunk of weight.
