Nice look but not the quality i expected from AStars
I commute daily approximately 70 miles on a cruiser or rocket. i purchased this pack three months ago and im now force to look for a new pack. Backpack looks good but has degraded quickly with moderate use. I like the size of the pack for carrying work stuff back and forth but helmet bag broke with in a weeks worth of use. about a month after that, belly strap broke leaving only one side attached. One of the chest straps came off not too long after that (nearly impossible to put back on). overall horrible quality in my opinion and I would not recommend to any of my friends. I'm very let down by this Alpine Stars pack.

Poor QA
Got my second bag, the first was returned. Guess what, the second bag has the same exact problem. The helmet hook pulls right out. It is not stitch into the bag. I'm ordering my third this weekend. Last chance.

Excellent
I really like the bag.
allot of space with all the pockets you need
water pouch laptop tablet cords bits and bobs mesh zipper
expandable gusset for a heavier load and the exterior features
rain cover helmet carrier and glasses microfiber lined all work an came as described
although the bag feels great on and distributes weight evenly I wish the strap and upper portion of the bag near the shoulders was a bit more integrated for the speed hump on my jacket it sits right on top of it blocking the air flow but other than that great bag

One pack for all needs
I love that this pack has two side zippered compartments that you can access without having to take the entire thing off - perfect for keys. Also, the helmet carrier comes in super handy when you don't feel like hauling your helmet in your hand - keeping it in the carrier also helps prevent from banging it into door frames, dropping it, or scratching the visor. I'm about 5' 2" with a narrow waist and the pack is adjustable in every direction so it fits great. The zipper seams are great because my hair doesn't get tangled in them while riding, plus I think they are waterproof too (it rarely rains in southern California, so I can't be certain). My only complaint is the plastic zipper sometimes quits working, but probably because I over-stuff the pack too often. This will be my second time buying this backpack in six years of riding.

Awesome bag
I got this bag as a gift and have loved it ever since. It's incredibly aerodynamic, stylish, and the size is perfect. I love being able to expand and collapse it as needed. The straps on the waist are great as well as the chest. I know some hate that, as well as the fact that the waist one isn't removable, but I love them. Plus, the pockets on the waist strap are perfect for keys, ids, etc without having to take the whole bag off.

Also, the rain cover is super nice in case of rain emergencies, and the helmet carrying system is fantastic., I haven't used it out yet, but I know when I do it is easy to use after testing it when I first got the bag.

I can fit a lot in this bag even before expanded. Change or two of clothes, shoes, flip flops, belts, etc, and even more once expanded.

I know a lot of people write negatively about the durability, but I have not had the same experience. I can say that I don't use the pockets inside nearly as often as others, but the use that I have had has been great. Everything is fine and nothing is coming undone/apart.

The carve out on the back for air works wonderfully. That combined with the chest/waist straps makes this bag super comfortable. I honestly forget I'm wearing it, even at high speeds.

I also love the fact that you can insert a back protector into this bag as an upgrade option.

Honestly, I can't say anything about this bag. It does exactly what I want and then some.

Also, Revzilla is wonderful to work with and incredibly fast. They will also talk to you for however long to answer any and all product/riding questions you might have like I did.

Highly recommend them and this product.

This is a fantastic backpack if you are a sport bike rider. It's not overly huge but not small either. It hugs you really well and you almost forget it's there. The pack breathes well on your back but yet doesn't allow the backpack to act as a parachute (so to speak) You never feel it tug on you. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a quality backpack. It's a touch on the expensive side, but hey, it's Alpinestars. :)

Great Backpack
I have used this backpack for commuting and on a couple trip. It sits very securely on my back with leathers or my textile jacket. It does a good job of staying out of the wind at higher speeds and remains comfortable. I like the low profile shoulder straps but really miss the quick release function. The back protector, helmet, laptop, tablet, glasses, hydration and other compartments all function really well. Have not had a chance to test the rain fly. The hydrating pack fits best hanging into the laptop compartment so having both might be cumbersome. My only complains so far is that the zipper for the main compartment hangs up where the reflective trim meets it near the top on both sides.

BUY THIS BACKPACK... NO WAIT.... IT"S MINE!!!!!
this is the coolest backpack I have ever had and I will ride with nothing else. Add a camelback? Road Trip heaven. and I do this stuff on sport bikes. The bag expands, has pockets layered on top of multiple zippered compartments, some side-by-side, fanny-pack style seatbelt waist strap, has 2 pouches, one on each side. perfect for a stun gun(I call it a bum-gun) ever been rushed on by angry people/persons while on your bike?. . how about a just in case knife, cell phone pocket for ease of access(I do jacket for phone as it has survived in falls), wallet and insurance for a ticket(lol). goggle pouch is secondary pouch on top, waterproof liner actually works in the rain. Helmet pouch is cool though bulgy if you actually stick your helmet in it, but another pocket. This thing rocks.

No issues so far
The reason I got this backpack was because when I'm in my tucked position, the backpack does not push against my helmet behind my neck. All the other backpacks that I have tried kept pushing on my helmet and was super uncomfortable.

The only thing I don't like about this is the small front pocket at the top, I tend to use that the most for small things, and it's small.... I wish there was perhaps another pocket? But this is minimal complaint.

I haven't had any issues of where the helmet straps fell off, though I do think about it every time I use it to strap my helmet. I use this backpack for when I have class.

This backpack has done me well. You can unzip the back and it will hold a lot of things when you need it. :) One thing about this is that when you un buckle the hip straps, they start banging on everything if it's not buckled in, otherwise, I still like it very much!

Overall a great pack
This is a well-made, easy to wear pack. The only drawback is that there is only one main compartment, and I need 2 compartments to separate textbooks and smaller items like snacks and pens/pencils. Otherwise, it's light and very workable.

This is my favorite backpack in the world. I've gone through two of them already, the vinyl zippers take a lot of abuse from me because I tend to overstuff the pack quite often. My only complaint is that the waist strap doesn't get tight enough for me, but the side pockets attached to the waist strap are great for keys or garage door openers or wallet or sun glasses because you can access them so easily without having to take the entire pack on/off.

There is a helmet holder, and pretty aero dynamic. I chose this because the bag doesn't hit the back of my helmet when I'm leaned over the tank. I'm 5'2" and on my '15 gsxr 600, I'm essentially lying on it. :)

After feeling like I had been through a day of fire training from wearing normal backpacks, the waist straps and aerodynamics, water Reservoir compartment complements everything I desire along with the fact of it being a durable backpack.

Where can I buy a hydro pack? Any links?
Mark D on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Zomake or nathan is probably the two best makers for Hydration Bladders. Search running stores for them or online.

What size Bio Armor Back Insert will fit in the backpack?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use the dainese manis G2 back protector. It fits perfectly.
Can i carry a full-face helmet inside of the main compartment if i buy this backpack?
Jean C on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The main compartment is too small for a full face helmet even with the expansion panels unzipped. The helmet garage however, easily accommodates a full face helmet, isn't terribly awkward to use, and feels fairly secure. Hope that helps.
Is the hydration pack supposed to be included? i purchased this bag and i don't have one! :(
A shopper on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello,
I did not have one with my pack either. Alpinestars webpage states "Pocket, loophole and conduit enables integration of hydro pack (as accessory upgrade)..." so looks like it can be purchased separate, but haven't found it yet.
Have a good one!
