Way more useful and comfortable than a backpack

Hailing from the great state of Utah (Bluffdale, in fact) OGIO's history is steeped in casual gear, hats and backpacks much more than hard core motorcycle gear. But one look at this urban command-style OGIO motorcycle vest and you can see it's just bursting with storage, pockets and good looks.
With the excellent Flight Vest, OGIO focused on build quality and created a utilitarian carrying system for tackling all the small items you could ever want to carry on your person while riding; goggles, gloves, your MP3 player - and maybe the latest copy of you Racer X. It even packs a hydration sleeve for extended rides.
In addition being incredibly useful, detail, form and fit are top of the line.
- 70 oz (2.0 L) Hydrapak hydration reservoir included.
- Dual side expansion zippers.
- Multi-functional pockets.
- Zippered chest pocket.
- Cell phone pocket.
- Back storage area.
- Goggle pockets.
- Tool organizer.
- Multiple adjustment points.
I wear this on a street bike. It can hold all of my junk and still looks pretty cool. Probably doesn't do anything in the safety department, but on those hot days its nice to have if you are just cruising around.
I finally had a chance to check out my OGIO Flight Vest and I am very impressed!
The first thing I noticed is how light it is. From the pictures I imagined it being heavy... NOT!
The cut of the vest is high in the front allowing sitting on the Grizzly without it shoving up. A super strong Hydro Bladder and drink tube that comes down the front right side with a bite valve that can be used with the helmet on. On the front (both sides) of the vest are two large zippered pockets (about 8"x6") large enough for goggles, RZR Mask or whatever. The left pocket has three additional long slender pockets on front.
Two smaller zippered pockets run up the left front of the vest and allow quick access to other items like your Contour. (about 5"x4' and 5"x3")
All zippers are super smooth.
On the back sides are two long zippered pockets that can hold whatever larger items or tools you might want to carry. (about 14"x5") There's also a large square pocket in the center of the back on top of the water bladder pocket. (about 10"x8")
Lashing loop galore on this vest and plenty of air flow through the mesh body.
Three buckles and straps to keep it closed if you like on the front but air still passes through the vest almost like it isn't there.
All in all it's a great accessory for our sport! God forbid you have to ever walk out, you can take all the survival gear you need easily and comfortably.
I'll be wearing mine on every ride!
Several pockets to hold all your tools and gear. It gets a little heavy when packed but carries the weight very well. Great for long rides when you need to carry extra stuff.
Will not go back to a backpack
This is an outstanding pack. It fits well and distributes the weight much more evenly than a conventional pack. The multiple pockets allow you to organize your gear and have important items like cameras available without taking off the vest. I have several friends that have one already and everyone loves them.
This is a great way to keep extra things on you at all times, and pack things just for the day. It carries the weight much better then a back pack!
I have a sport quad and a duel sport so i use to have no room at all for anything, this will solve that problem for me, plus i'll feel better knowing i have flat tire repair kits, flash light, tools, rain jacket, etc at all times on me.
Very easy to get stuff. A lot of good pockets to put everything in. The water pack in the back is also another very good feature.
