Dainese Backpack R
Great bag, excellent price/performance
This backpack has the perfect size for every day riding. It is also sort of semi-rigid (it's still canvas but it keeps its shape very well). The elastic lower strap makes strapping the backpack on super convenient and comfortable. The helmet pouch also has an excellent design. I'm very satisfied with this backpack, you can tell it was made by riders for riders.

Best backpack for the money.
Great riding backpack. Stays tight on your back even in the tucked position up to fairly high speeds. Don't really notice it on. Helmet carrier is very nice and the main reason I purchased it. Not many crazy storage compartments; just a straight forward bag. A little hard to put on with a motorcycle jacket.

good back pack
Its a little smaller than I thought it would be. My laptop won't fit but its large (17 inch screen). I just use it to commute to work and I don't need it for my laptop but I thought that info might be useful to potential buyers. I can fit a pair of pants, a shirt and a light jacket in it with no problems. If I have to put more in there than that then I have to wrap the items up tightly and then I can get a few more items in there...

Very comfortable and more space than expected
Excellent backpack, very comfortable with great adjustment straps. The helmet holder works great with a half helmet, you don’t even know its there. The bubble material that pads the straps and back is very deep and thick, very breathable!

Just what I was looking for
There were two things that drew me to this backpack. First was the name Dainese...that is pretty much a no-brainer in my mind. Second was the helmet carrying system.
I was looking for a backpack that could carry sneakers and a few things for the gym, or my tablet and some notebooks for school. This fits the bill perfectly! There is a laptop sleeve and a few little pockets attached to that for pens and pencils, etc., but they left the main pocket open so you could put what you want how you want it.
The straps are great and make the pack feel almost like it's not there while riding.
I am a little more into the reflective and being seen thing, and that is not something this pack does well. I added a little reflectivity onto the back of the bag so that I could be seen a bit better from behind in traffic at night.

Great Backpack for Sport Riders
Like all Dainese equipment, this pack is outstanding. It is well built with nice features for the commuter. The straps are secure and the pack doesn't shift when riding. The profile is aerodynamic and the expandable helmet bag is great when not riding. Great pack!

Backpack has cheaper zipper pulls than shown, but the product is great overall.
This is made for riding. It has a waist belt and chest belt to really keep it secure. Very well made, I would highly recommend. Perfect for trips to the coffee shop with your laptop.

Great Pack for when you need to carry your helmet around
I bought this so that I could carry my helmet around with me when I need to go places like the Mall or the grocery store. You cant stuff a whole lot into it but you should be able to get an extra set of clothes , weather gear, and snacks with no problem when using the pack to carry your helmet too.
