Great overall backback.
This backpack is very durable and has tons of room. I used for my laptop, charter and books with no problem. I also used it to tote my gym clothes (shoes, socks, shirt, shorts, water bottle, towel) and could not tell I was wearing all that stuff on my back. It is very aerodynamic with little wind resistance. I did have to expand the waist belt all the way to get it around my textile jacket (33 inch waist).

Fits the bill for a newly naked dude
Usually rely on my huge panniers and trunk on my Bandit but the new Street Trip is so fun. Still need to tote a laptop and rain gear much of the time and this bag is a great solution. The bag is long and narrow compared to some bags. It's comfortable loaded. The waist harness is just long enough for me to get around my jacket. I'm a 30 waist 38 chest. If you're much bigger you may need to get the tailor to extend it but It's worth it if you ask me. Felt good above legal highway speeds. The high viz yellow looks great in person. I'm psyched about this bag. Glad I found it.

Completely Waterproof Backpack
I bought this backpack for the occasional downpour we have in Northern California. I've been in heavy and light rain and it performed perfectly in both and remained 100% dry in each condition. Also, the chest and stomach strap do a good job of holding the backpack to you while riding, even with a relatively full backpack.

As mentioned by others, the backpack is rather narrow and deep so it is a little different than most. Not enough to look strange though and there is plenty of space inside which is nice (less than a rucksack but more than an average backpack). There are two small pockets on the outside which could probably hold a handful of items each and another outside pocket than can hold about a liter. The interior has a laptop pouch and a few other, smaller pouches.

Would absolutely recommend I abuse my gear and it has held up very well.

Nice waterproof backpack
I live and commute in the NW and often have to deal with rainy, foggy weather. I bought the backpack mostly for the waterproof features, but also for the hi visibility yellow option. I want to be seen on those foggy days! I've been using the backpack for almost a month now and it definitely stands up to a good rain. The pack is well-built and comfortable when adjusted right. It's a bit taller (longer) and not quite as wide (thick) as other back-packs I've had. It carries as much volume as I need but because of the shape I sometimes have to pack stuff a bit more vertically (on top of other stuff) more than I like. Other than, it's a great, comfortable pack for commuting.

meets expectations
the back pack is well made and seems like it would be waterproof with lots of internal pockets, it just seems that the seems at the bottom are a little wimpy as you can see light through the welds in the plastic. I got hi viz and it is bright, it also has a reflective logo on it.

Good, but oddly shaped
Haven't tried it in heavy rain, but was fine in light rain. Material is fairly heavy, thick, and plastic. Bag is very deep, but narrow, making it difficult to carry more than a book or two.

Good backpack
Nice bag pack, Have yet to test in the rain. Material is very stiff. Would like to have more reflective stripes as it covers the reflective material on my jacket. Inside laptop/tablet pouch is padded and offers several pockets. Could use longer chest strap, as now i just ride with out it. OVERALL= Nice bag for he money and if it works in a rain storm then very much worth it!

Solely because the bag is waterproof. I liked what other bags had to offer but I need the safety of knowing my gear will be dry while riding in rain.

Do you have this in the yellow ?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, love the color.
Does weatherproof mean totally waterproof? I'm looking for a backpack that won't absorb wetness
Brittney S on Oct 31, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hello Brittney

I live in Vancouver Canada and it pours rain here and this is the best I have seen short of any air tight sealed cases. Even the zippers are sealed so you can put your phone in the outer pocket and rain won't hit it.

I have not dunked in in a pool so I can't tell if its scuba ready.....yet
This Alpinestars Slipstream Backpack is a 100% waterproof? Thanks.
A shopper on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have ridden in serious rain with out leakage. I confidently ride with electronics inside. Go high vis yellow. You won't go unnoticed.
How much does the backpack weigh?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The Alpinestars Slipstream Backpack weighs approximately 1 lb. 13.5 oz.

A shopper on Jul 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This pack is designed to work with laptops up to 15 inches. However, not all laptops are created equal so it is possible that a "small" 17inch laptop could fit. We would recommend measuring the dimensions of your laptop and then calling our customer service line, or calling Alpinestars at +1 (800) 438-2577. Either way someone should be able to confirm if your specific laptop will work or not.
Is the Alpinestars Slipstream Backpack is big enough to fit my helmet?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2012
BEST ANSWER: While this particular bag is not designed for carrying a helmet, we do carry a variety of other bags that will more closely accommodate your needs. Please find below links to our products that are geared more towards what you are looking for.
