Great Backpack I bought 2 of these - one for me & one for my wife. We ride Dual Sport bikes, and frequently get wet and muddy. For the first few rides, these backpacks have held up well, and have been waterproof, so far. The only real negative is lack of mounting straps. The pack has 2 on the bottom, but to secure the top, you'll need to attach bungees to the handle strap, which isn't as secure as I'd like. A large bungee net is probably a better solution.

Great quality. Great price. Small. Single internal pouch. This product was great quality at a great price. It's small but I knew that off the bat. The only drawback beside size is the singleness of the large internal space. August 14, 2014
Great backpack for the price I got this for my husband. We've used it for getting groceries home (it holds a surprising amount of stuff). He keeps his spare rainpants in it as well. It's definitely very waterproof. The bag looks nice, has a good amount of carrying capacity, and does not feel noticeable when it's worn at highway speeds. The only downside in my husband's opinion is a lack of pockets/compartments within the bag, but it's otherwise a fantastic value for the price. June 30, 2014
Functions as intended, but disorganized This backpack does exactly what you're buying it for: keeps your stuff dry. My only problem with it is the lack of compartments. There is a front mesh zipper pocket which can hold smaller items like pens and things. There are two side zipper compartments that are really small--I guess they're for things like your wallet or ID or something. And then, there's the one big inside compartment where most of my stuff goes. I find it troublesome to dig through half of my things to get to one item, as opposed to a school backpack, where there are multiple compartments to organize your things better. Other than that, it does a much better job at keeping my things dry versus a school backpack or something similar. June 23, 2014
excellent pack great pack - very well made, exceptional functionality, truly waterproof, nice big main compartment, the front zip/mesh compartment is a nice size, the side zip pockets are very small but good for pens, credit cards/DL, keys, etc. the shoulder & sternum straps work great & the back pad adds some stiffness. this is a great, simple pack for riding, hiking, work, school, anything.

Excellent Good size bag. Not overly big. Great quality and for the price of a waterproof bag, it can't be beat. The only thing that I would change, is the buckle that clips around the chest. It is small and could be a little better. Other than that, it's an awesome bag. 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC February 3, 2014
Great bag!! I bought this to replace an very well used Ogio No Drag backpack, and did not want to fork over the cash on the Kriega R30. I mainly wanted a waterproof bag for my daily commute to work (100 mile round trip) and this has fit the bill. Everything is fully sealed minus the mesh middle pocket and with the rolled top the main compartment is completely sealed. I've been able to pack in a complete change of clothes, shoes, food, ect. and still have some room to spare! Where with my old Ogio bag i would be limited to a packed lunch and possibly a small jacket. My ONLY complaint would be the straps. There's no waist strap, only the shoulder and sternum strap. Although simple, the adjustment ends are sewn so once adjusted they won't be flapping in the wind which more than makes up for the lack of a waist strap. And to be completely honest i got used to it real quick and once on the bike the bag doesn't shift at all. I would highly recommend this bag, especially with the price point (and free shipping!) you can't go wrong for a simple commuting backpack. January 27, 2014

Logan M: @A Shopper
Yes, you can fit a laptop of pretty much any size in this backpack. However, there are no dedicated sleeves or compartments in the backpack. Its basically a big waterproof bag with a surprising amount of space inside.
With that being said, I love this pack and use it everyday!
