This is indeed a good bag to have in a rotation of choice. The only downside is that your very limited as to what can be packed into the bag far as space. Now if you don't plan on shopping and buying stuff while out on the road then this bag is great for the natural traveling things u may need. But only like 2 pairs of jeans and a shirt all roll up tight will make this bag full to its capacity.

I commute to school every day, and this backpack is excellent. Stays on my back, is compact and all of the straps have elastic loops to secure them. This pack easily holds my laptop, 3 subject binder, 32oz water bottle and calculator, laptop charger, etc. It definitely holds more than it looks like it would. The vest type straps do a good job of securing the backpack to your body. My only complaint is that the shoulder straps adjust from the bottom, where they meet the body of the pack, so adjusting it to fit properly can be tricky. Overall, a good coice imo.
I like the way if fits and how it does't move while you have it on. The only problem I see is how to hook your helmet to the big strap on the front of the bag. If someone could answer that question I would appreciate that.
This backpack is pretty good. Theres no straps that hit you on the helmet while riding haha (i had that experience from a northface i used to use) The bag isn't that big to be honest. You can fit a decent amount of stuff in it but don't expect to use this bag for a 3 day weekend trip or anything. Other than that the bag feels good it doesn't bother you on the bike or off.
I like the design of this bag. I have a hard time reaching for the strap of normal bags. I end up swinging the bag and trying to grab the other end from my bag. Because this bag has such a large piece in the front, it's easy to grab with my hand. Although I look a little silly wearing the bag. It covers up the front of my jacket. It's a bit like a life vest. I picked the black one so it's not as funny looking. So far so good.
I am so glad Amazon.com canceled my order because this backpack was out of stock. Not only was it cheaper at motosport.com but NO TAX+FREE(best word ever) 3-DAY shipping was the icing on the cake! It actually arrived in 2 days! I love how the backpack is simple and the straps are extremely comfortable (wide straps, thick cushion). It looks like all it can hold is a laptop but it has room a whole lot more. We managed to put in a towel, a change of clothes for 2 big people, wallets, keys, waterbottle, a gun and bug spray. Not only is the backpack great but it turns out to be the same backpack my boyfriend was looking to purchase for himself. I will return to this site to order again. :)
The main compartment is big enought for two 2-liter bottles of water. Fits like a glove, no more stress and strain on the shoulders. This is the backpack we should have had ten years ago! Use waterproof bags inside as the outer shell is not waterproof, no big deal, you can get ziplock bags big enought to hold anything you can put in it!
