Givi EA104 Easy Range Backpack
I'll update this review if anything changes (I haven't had a chance to ride with it yet), but I can't see why it would. The backpack fits very tight against your back, I really can't see it creating much drag at all. Getting my large GT Air in and out of the holder is very quick and easy (I like snapping the bottom and one of the top clips, sliding it in from the side, and snapping the final clip). Really love having a handy way to carry my helmet through shops and just around in general, crazy how cheap this is considering how well thought out it looks and feels.
I docked one point in performance because I really can't see the rain cover working well. It doesn't fully cover the top of the bag and doesn't cover the part that's against your back (where all the water from your helmet will be running down) at all. It's possible that the innards are waterproofed against the top/back and that it'll be good enough - but I definitely won't carry electronics in it if I'm expecting rain until it's been thoroughly rain tested. I think it would have been better for the helmet straps to come from the top and the rain cover to come from the bottom (where you find it on most backpacks).

Great backpack - works for most needs
Very well made product with waterproof and helmet-carrying utility. Only one star off because I wish the interior pockets for keys and accessories were better organized. Overall I really like this backpack - carries a lot for the appearance of being small. I would buy again or buy as a gift.

Great low profile backpack
Hard to beat for the $$.
Very sturdy, looks great, extremely flat and low profile when empty. The construction is great and I feel like it'll last me a while.

inexpensive bag that is perfect for riding.
This bag is inexpensive, has a shape that creates almost no drag when empty, and yet can hold much more than expected. I definitely recommend.

Ticks all the boxes
Perfect bagpack for that price range. It is well built, the material looks, feels and performs extremely well so no quality complains there.
It has very wide straps which can be easily worn of you are wearing a jacket or suit. The key feature of carrying helmet works fine, it just feels odd when you do carry your helmet like that.
Waterproof cover also does its job properly the only issue i faced is the tiny straps to tie the waterproof cover on to the bag which is hard work if you are on the go.
I do suggest this product to other folks out there.
