I am a real stickler about backpacks... always have been. I love backpacks that come up with creative ways to store a lot of stuff in an organized, compact way, and my god... this backpack serves it up! Here are the pros:
*Specialized spots for EVERYTHING a rider will need for a long trip! tools, first aid, extra faceshields, laptop, tons of room for clothes/snacks
*Super water resistant
*Looks awesome (I got the silver camo one)
*SUPER REFLECTIVE (it glows! you can see it from a mile away even on the darkest of roads)
*zippers won't blow open
*SPECIAL POCKET FOR YOUR HELMET
*RIDING JACKET STRAPS TO BACKPACK...
you can put your gloves, jacket, and helmet inside of this backpack without sacrificing any of the room for other stuff!
*Front straps up like a life vest... like the other guy said, you can pack it with enough stuff to last you weeks on the road and it feels like it's a part of you
*pockets EVERYWHERE... large and small... holds ANYTHING!
*Fits comfortably and snugly, doesn't affect balance
*Super-reflective arm bands add to visibility, but are removable
*Laptop storage is great... super protected and fits perfectly
*plastic bottom (sit it anywhere!)
*Heavy-duty strap on top (for carrying/hanging)
*Water bottles can be strapped in on the back and they don't fall out (this isn't advertised, I just threw some in, snapped the back all up, and went for a ride... they didn't move)
*The pack "opens up" with buckles in the back... so when you're on the road, everything is compact with the center of gravity as low as possible, but when you're stopped, you can easily get to anything in any of the pockets quickly and easily
*Nice little labels by each pocket telling you what it's for (i.e. face shields, laptop, tools, first aid, helmet storage, etc)
*nice organizers in the front pocket
*Two ID holders on the arms
*Soft comfort padding on the back and chest also add protection for you and your stuff, pockets on the chest are very convenient
*even if it's empty, it still holds its shape and doesn't flap around in the wind
*Stays snugly on your back even at 100+ mph... doesn't move around or affect your balance
*All seams and material is super durable, reflective, and looks great
***Basically, this is the most perfect backpack I've ever seen or used. It can hold anything and everything comfortably, while adding protection and, in my opinion, IMPROVING balance by keeping extra weight low and giving you that feeling of the backpack "being a part of you"
There are none. Trust me, I've thought HARD and there simply aren't any cons. I would recommend this pack to anyone looking for a great traveling backpack that will hold a lot of stuff and be comfortable to wear... even if you aren't a rider. the helmet storage comes out the bottom and can be used for extra stuff by elongating the backpack another foot or so
