Alpinestars Lite Backpack
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.

My favorite Alpinestars product by far
I've used quite a bit of gear made from A*s, had a couple pairs of gloves that were both honestly trash that frayed apart only a couple months apart of riding, went through a couple jackets that were decent but still didn't feel like I was really getting the most of out the money spent, and more spent on a brand name.
However, this backpack is the perfect size and exactly what I needed in terms of commuting to & from work, the laptop pouch a solid slot with it's own velcro strap and it has a couple pockets attached to the larger one that I can easily slide my wallet, reg/insurance etc. into. The pockets go deep and the removable waist strap (for days you aren't feeling the need for it) coupled with the adjustable and elastic chest strap give a superior lightweight feel that doesn't flop around in the wind. My favorite feature I'd have to say would be that if adjusted properly and riding at the right speed, the wind slightly lifts the pack giving a nice breeze on those hot days. Vegas gets upwards of 110+ and I forget this bag is even there.
The black & green looks awesome, and coincides with my 98 zx6r's lime nicely, I'd say overall storage space to something relevant would be about a change of clothes, two bottles of water, and a laptop/tablet. A pair of shoes will make the bag feel a bit full combined with the listed above, but it can be done. If you were looking for a solid commuter backpack for quick trips around town or work, this would be my #1 choice.

Great looking and simple
Bag works and looks great. Simple and seemingly perfect for my use... Not a big shopper or traveler but helps get anything small back to the house and perfect to carry the laptop when I need it.
