Quality product
The materials on this thing are outstanding. It can comfortably hold a hoody and extra visor with plenty of room to spare.

Plenty of pockets for small items so they won't get lost in the bag and there is smaller soft lined glasses or phone pocket on the top for easy access.
The two outside bottle pockets don't exactly suitably fit a water bottle but there are also 2 pockets on the inside so it is not a problem.
It wil ALMOST fit a 17" laptop in the dedicated pocket but you juuuusst won't be able to zip it . So maybe on a clear day it will be ok if you have to take it.
The bag is comfortable with a jacket and does not move around. I only gave it a 3 for durability because I have not had the item long but overall this is a well made product and it is sure to be the last riding bag you'll ever need.

Great backpack
this is a great backpack I love it so much, my laptop if perfect in it and all the extra build in pockets are the best for packing for school/road trips, the only thing i wish it had was wast straps but it dose not need then. this bag stays in place during high speed passing and curves. If you use your bike as a daily rider you need on of these for you stuff.

Great bag, very pleased with it
Good quality, had about 1" of loose stiching along one shoulder strap which I fixed with a speedy stitcher. Style and design are top notch, pockets and padding every where you'd want it. Fits nice and high on my back while in riding position, no discomfort and feels very secure. So far I've successfully lugged home bread, milk and cat food in mine.

Replaced Trooper with this
This bag is just the right size. I use this mostly for commuting and carrying my 15" dell laptop. The laptop fits snugly in the pocket so a 17" wouldn't fit. This sits very comfortably on my back and doesn't sit on the seat at all. The Trooper would rest on the back seat and kind of rise up and down. I found this to be quite annoying. I've only had this bag a couple of weeks now but find it to be much more practical. the looks are simple so it can easily be used as a daily pack (off the bike) as well. The only real gripe i have with it is the chest buckle. It's just too small. It would be nice if it was a little larger and easier to unclasp. Although this is not a dealbreaker

This is a great commuter bag. I use it daily and the laptop slot is perfect. May not be as secure feeling as a Kriega but the Kriega doesn't have a separate laptop pouch.

It's awesome...

Is this product waterproof?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is if you deploy the rainhood which is conveniently stored near the top of the pack. Without it it can take quite a bit of water without compromising.
How big is this pack? 30L? 20L?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 30L
Does the AK commuter backpack have any reflective material?
Mark R on Jun 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The "AK" symbol on the back and a couple of parts of the straps are reflective.
how well does this pack do in the rain ? does it keep contents in bag dry if its pouring ?
A S on Sep 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not waterproof by any means. Light rain is okay, more than that and your stuff is getting wet. I got the rain cover too and it works great and is easy to store.
Does this have the quick latch release so you can get your 2nd arm in easily?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what that would be, but I put on like a standard pack. Like I was doing back in school, first arm goes in, contort & get second arm in.
