Where's the chest strap?
Even the Slipstream has a chest strap for when you've got a full pack so you can cinch the shoulder straps closer together to free up your shoulders. Freer shoulders = more comfortable control over your motorcycle bars.
Yet this is a LARGER pack than the Slipstream, and there's no chest strap? And there aren't even any typical holes or accommodations down the shoulder straps to add an improvised chest strap to the rig. Frustrating.
On the plus side, it was pretty inexpensive, I do like the red, and the rest of the pack seems to be okay. It's a little weird that the laptop entry is on the side of the pack OUTside the compartment, with the not-water resistant zipper starting at the top where it's exposed to rain (no zipper garage and the top cover doesn't cover the zipper). Shouldn't the laptop case be inside the compartment, which would've rendered the non-water resistant zipper a non-issue?
It started pouring rain here today, so maybe that's what's got me fired up about being critical in these reviews. I hope that's not the case. I mean, a chest strap on a bike/motorcycle pack should be kind of a no-brainier, no?

Larger pack with a different style
This is a pretty nice backpack at this pricepoint; I was considering the Ogio Mach 5, but didn't necessarily want to spend almost double what the Tracker cost. The main compartment is very roomy, and there's lot of areas in the pack for little stuff like an air gauge or small toolkit. It could definitely serve as a weekend bag.
My only complaint is that the Alpinestars logo is everywhere. I'm not a big brand kind of guy, so that bothers me a bit, but I'll get over it.
