Fly Illuminator Street Backpack 4.5 5 21 21
Great backpack It's a great backpack for a first motorcyle bag. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. December 8, 2014
This product has great features I really like all of the different storage compartments. Zippers are really good quality. The pack is vey well constructed and fits well. The shoulder straps need to be a little longer but it still works great. Has lots of storage capacity. November 10, 2014
Great product! I have loved everything about this backpack. It works as my school bag and has all the room I need for my books and laptop and can even carry my helmet around without banging it on stuff. My only gripe is the water bottle holders on the sides are too small so no don't use them. But otherwise I would recommend it to anyone! September 15, 2014
This is a good commuter backpack. I like everything about this backpack except the zipper has frayed some on the front pouch. Other than that, it is very good. It has a lot of reflective markings and load bearing is balanced. September 1, 2014
this product works great for us this product works great for us. I would tell people to buy it. July 2, 2014
Great but kind of small This is a great bag but as a 6'6" guy it is a little small. But that seems to be the way most gear goes. April 29, 2014
Hi-Viz backpack! Awesome Has plenty of pockets and room for my commute to school and work. Has plenty of Hi-Viz green and reflective material. Seems durable and strong. Comes with two horizontal straps with clips. Has a nice cushioned laptop holder as well. Also has a way to carry a spare helmet. April 14, 2014
Great reflectivity This is my second of this product. The first one started to fray after around 7 months, but to be fair I use it daily and take it everywhere I go. Love it and would buy it again. January 28, 2014

Clayton H: You mean my gym bag? I love it. More space and the compartments are convient. Love this bag. Apr 11, 2014
Thomas B: Has greatest holding capacity, visibility Mar 31, 2014
Eric R: I have the hi-viz pack. Enough room for computer and a few clothing items (use for work if I ride in). It's a good bag but would like a little more strap length to make it easier to put on and take off. This isn't a huge factor but it I'm not a big guy (5'10 -185lbs - 44 chest) and when wearing my coat it's a bit tight. If your wider you might have a bit of trouble. I ride a Harley Davidson Softail Slim (FLS) Dec 26, 2013
Ryan N: LIked the style and capacity Nov 5, 2013
Michael S: Holds a helmet, Hydrapak and has a remarkable amount of visibility in the day and reflectivity at night. Sep 11, 2013
Juan T asked: Is there enough space for a couple of textbooks + the helmet? Aug 26, 2013

Bruno D: Textbooks? Oh yes... After putting in a helmet you still have enough space to put as many text books you need to break your back!

It becomes a little bulky and it might not be very comfortable, but it is still way better than carrying another helmet hanging from your arm...

I'm incredibly happy with this backpack! :)

patrick r: Yeah but it will stick out quite a ways off your back. It's a little awkward. The only time I've ever used the helmet holder has been to carry an extra helmet or jacked. Remember to zip your zippers to one side instead of the middle or it will catch wind and fly open. Learned that the hard way. It's a great bag though. Use mine all the time. Sep 3, 2013

Jason F: Juan, you should be good, the helmet doesn't really intrude into the space of the backpack (it's got it's own pouch), but it will stick out really far off the back if you've got the pack decently loaded up. I got the hi-viz and love the visibility it gives my otherwise all black gear, without wearing a silly looking vest. Sep 3, 2013
Reply to Jason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Travis D: It will hold just about everything you need I am a college student for paramedic and it holds everything but it has already started to fray at the hivis material so if you have a long ride I would recommend something more durable Sep 3, 2013

Chad M: There is enough room for text books and a helmet. When the helmet is inside the pack it does hang a little bit low but nothing to crazy. Overall I'm happy with the backpack and use it for my daily commute to work. Sep 4, 2013

Austin J: Yes, I bought this pack earlier this summer. It has a surprising amount of space. It could fit a few text books and a helmet for sure, but not a whole lot of other things with those items. Sep 4, 2013
Reply to Austin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael S: Yes, as long as you don't have too many in there at the same time as the helmet. ...say 2 or 3, along with a 3 quart Hydrapak, that the pack is built to accomodate also. Sep 4, 2013

brian w: Yes there is enough space for full face helmet plus text books, and lab top. A very good back pack use it all the time. Sep 4, 2013

Bradley W: Absolutely. It really expands out nicely. Sep 3, 2013
Reply to Bradley Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Eric T: I guess it depends on the size of the text books and the helmet, but I would bet there is. The thing is BIG. I have fit all my gym gear (incluing full size towel and sneakers), plus my lap top and all the cords and stuff that go with it in the bag. It has a seperate expandable section for the helmet that zips closed when you don't want to use it. Sep 4, 2013

A shopper asked: Does this backpack have any sort of strap management system so the straps aren't flapping around while I'm riding? Apr 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris C: The straps are well managed. I do not notice any flapping at all. There is a little slack from the strap at the chest but again, it's not noticeable. This is a great backpack; much better than the first one I bought for more money. It is really comfortable and holds a lot. You would not be disappointed with this purchase. Apr 9, 2014
Reply to Chris Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael H: Not really, but I dont have much of an issue with it. I usually keep the lower strap attached to itself and i always use the upper chest strap. My only issue with the backpack is the lack of an exterior water bottle pouch. Apr 9, 2014
Reply to Michael Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Eric T: Everything is pretty well tied down except for the two shoulder straps when they are pulled tight and you don't have a lot in the pack. Apr 11, 2014
Reply to Eric Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
patrick r: It does on the back but I have to tuck the shoulder and chest straps in on themselves. I have no problems with it. Great bag. Apr 10, 2014

Steven M: I commute in the Chicago area and use it to store a Shoei helmet. From where I park, I basically have to walk a mile and leave my bike out all day. Hence, I don't like to leave my helmet out.

I'm very happy with this pack as I'm able to carry my helmet along with other items such as books, rain gear, and an extra technical shirt.

I'm not sure if you're talking about just a 3 liter bladder or the associated holder. If it's just the bladder it should fit without issue. However, I can't say if you are asking about the bladder along with the backpack holder. I am guessing the former as you probably are not carrying a backpack inside a backpack.

I was going to take a picture of the pack with my helmet in it, but it does not appear there is a way to upload pictures on this form.

brent b: Probably but it isn't built for it. It doesn't have the routing openings for the bite tube and the compartment doesn't have a hanger so the bladder would flop wherever it wanted to. Jul 17, 2014

Datleen V: I brought the Black and gray one and there is so much reflective stripping in it that you really dont need the hi-viz color one if that color is something you dont want. I love my backpack and at night I stand out like a cop car with their overhead lights on lol. Mar 1, 2015
