Alpinestars Roving Backpack
Medium sized bag, light weight and purely awesome!
A little skeptical about buying this bag at first but in my opinion its the best looking bag out there, i was a little afraid of it being to small and flapping in the wind but it straps nicely to my body (5'7 155 lbs) but fits great. and doesnt move an inch, it holds all my stuff with ease. I use my bike not only to cruise around and hit the road but i commute with it a few times to work a week as well on the hwy and it does great. Sometimes i forget its even there.

I needed a backpack for school that could carry my laptop and other essentials and this one so far has been perfect. Comfortable while riding and looks sweet! Definitely get this if you want something with light capacity and practical!

Just got this backpack last week, and I can't stop carry it everywhere! This backpack not only good on riding, but also good for street walking.
It's lightweight, good sized, full of functionality, and also looks so stylish!

Nice looking backpack
Lightweight, roomy, fits a laptop, and the green/black one matches my bike well.

The good stuff.
I purchased this item else-where, but would like to give my take on it.
I've used this from everything to hiking 8 miles, packing clothes for a weekend away, and of-course, it's main use as a commuting backpack.
The straps are very nicely padded, the straps for holding a jacket under the bottom of the bag have been used IMMENSELY, I cannot stress how many times I've used those to carry an extra "hoodie" to work without clogging the main compartment I use for my lunch.
The included rain cover was a nice addition that I removed, and should probably reinstall.
I've used the padded "sunglass" area in the smaller compartment a few times as well.
One of my favorite features is the hold-down for the extra length of the straps so they are not flopping around in the wind, smacking everything. I also am a huge fan of the removable waist strap, which I've never felt the need to use. The chest strap has been plenty.
The only complaints I have is that firstly I wish it had the clip on shoulder strap system featured in the other models alpinestars offers, that looks useful. And I also wish there were no side cinch straps on the main compartment, it doesn't open far enough to make any use out of them.

Great riding pack
Bought this backpack mainly to commute with before I bought side bags. I put gym shoes and my uniform in it. Occasionally I put my laptop which is a 15 inch ultrabook. I have also discovered how to carry an extra helmet on the back of it by using the side clips.

A stars backpack
I purchased this backpack mainly for school and work purposes and it caries every thing I need with no problem. The rain cover is very nice in the Nebraskan weather especially because it can be 98 then 75 and rainy in 30 min so its nice to have that always with you. The jacket straps/ holder comes in handy more than I imagined also I find myself using it all the time. The laptop pouch fits my laptop which is huge because I have had problems with bags not being big enough for it and its nice to be able to carry it in a more protected pouch. There is also plenty of room for a laptop 2 college books and 3 college notebooks plus in the main pouch and still enough room for the smaller pouch for my wallet phone and ipod at one time. The material is kind of odd in the feel it feels weaker but you can tell its rather durable at the same time. The adjustable chest strap is very nice as well and I found my self re attaching the lower strap so the pack stays on tighter at interstate speeds. Overall the bag is great for the price.
