Alpinestars Lite Backpack
Would be a nice bag, but poorly made.
Bag lasted about 4 rides before the strap broke when I was putting it on. Not worth the price.

Just the right size!
I was looking for a pack for commuting that was not too big, was water resistant, and would last! I believe the alpinestar's lite backpack fits that bill. But the main feature that sold me on it was the quick release on the left arm strap. As a bigger guy getting a pack on and off with a jacket on was a near impossible task. Not with the alpinestar's lite pack. The quick release makes putting the pack on or off extremely easy. The pack seems to be made well and the zippers are qualiity.

It goes good with a green Ninja
This Backpack feels durable and well constructed. It has a good design and the green one goes good with a green ninja. It keeps water out and is very comfortable. I would like it to have more pockets and to be a little bigger. It can carry your laptop and school stuff but it would get full with a hoodie. I recomend it but be aware the space is limited.

Keeps your stuff dry
So far I've had my bag for 90 days and its been used everyday since. It has been great for school and weekend trips, it seems to have just enough space. Usually holds 2 1/2 days worth of clothes, or two textbooks, a laptop, a couple notebooks and folders. As far as weather goes this thing stands up to the rain and snow without a problem downpour or light drizzle. Barely notice it while riding, comfortable straps that prevent a lot of movement. I'm a little nervous about the craftsmanship but well see how long the bag holds up.

PERFECT COMMUTING PACK!
i got this just for commuting to and from work, i must say, im surprised what all i can fit into it!
the straps keep it well centered on my back and i have no issues with it flying around on day trips.
the shape also keeps it quiet and streamlined to minimize the wind noise you would hear riding in the 3/4 to tuck positions.
(the speed limits here are 85 MPH, so i tend to tuck for my 2 hour commute)

nice bag for commuting.
nice fit and finish, love the detachable strap. front pocket is a little too small for an iphone, could be a little deeper, otherwise no complaints

Good backpack for the price
This is the first riding backpack that I ever bought. It is perfect for getting around town when you only need to carry a few small objects. I would not recommend this if you are planning very long trips and are trying to stuff it full of clothes and other necessities. This backpack is very comfortable to ride with and is very light. Also has great air flow over your back. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a small backpack to ride around town with.

This backpack WILL hold a 17" HP laptop! It's tight, but it fits. Plus the extra pockets are big. Not too sure how long the zippers will hold out, but so far so good!
I would definitely recommend this lite backpack for commuters and short trips.
