Givi EA104 Easy Range Backpack
Best budget GIVI around
Being a lot cheaper than the rigid top brand bagpacks this also gets the job done. Besides, they have a weather-proof removable cover you can store inside a small pocket and a huge support cover for your helmet while off the bike.
Quality is good and interior size is good too (it comes with a zipper that will increase a lot the interior space).

At first I was skeptical but this product is nothing short of great for the price. Durable to last with assured care. Would buy again. A bit small for my tastes but big enough to for a nights stay or every day carry with usual gear such as a clothes, jacket, helmet and gloves. Highly recommend. Revzilla is where it's at!

Awesome bag and looks great!
Bought this bag because the regular gym bag I was using was being ripped by the wind shear when i ride. This bag is awesome, I'm able to carry an extra helmet on the bag as well. Pockets are easy to get into even with gloves on.
Also fast shipping to Canada, flat rate 30 bucks USD tho, so I usually order a bunch of stuff I want to make it worth while.

A good pack with some durability issues
I've been using this backpack for a couple years now, and it's served me well. I've probably been a little hard on it, but the buckles cracked pretty quickly, and I'm now fighting with a zipper that doesn't like to zip properly and sometimes pops open as a result.
Capable of fitting very close and comfortably to the body, which is something I've really liked about it. Lots of great features here and I would recommend it based on price and what you're getting for your money, but I just wish there were more metal pieces in place of the plastic ones.

For the price and quality of this backpack you can't go wrong. It has a ton of great features, very sleek and fits great with the straps. Very happy with the purchase.

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.
