Icon Squad 3 Backpack
Way to go Icon. I love this backpack. It's extremely streamline and can hold just enough for my everyday commute. Wouldn't recommend for anyone that wants to go on a long trip and has to pack a lot of things. Wish the backpack had a little more give to it to pack some more stuff in it but I still love it all the same. I love the reflectivity of the zippers and on the clips and side panels. Would highly recommend for anyone that wants a backpack that doesn't make you look like a hunchback rolling down the street. .

Very nice snug fit
Sleek look but you have to pay for it in the amount it can hold. I fit a change of clothes and a hoody in mine comfortably anything else you'll have to squeeze in

Worth the price!
If you use a regular backpack instead of a motorcycle backpack you are doing yourself an injustice. I like when I wear this backpack there isn't anything weighing me down, I carry a 15 inch laptop and everything i'll need for the day and the backpack fits snug and commfortable.

Well thought out design, looks fantastic!
The bag has two well thought out compartments. I use my bike to get to every place and the bag fits my needs perfectly. I am able to fit in everything I need for my day including things for university and work, and the design allows me to keep everything organized and get to the things I need to when I want them.
It looks fantastic, almost like an army vest from the front. I have taken it for about 500 Km's and it sits on the body as if it isn't there, and has no noticeable effects in poor weather conditions.
Looked around for a long time to find a quality bag, that suited my needs, and looked great!!! Look no further, this is the bag!

Great Bag for everyday use
I bought this bag because I was tired of using a regular backpack while I ride. This bag feels very comfortable and fits nicely. The velcro ID holders are very convenient and allows you to keep your bag on while filling up gas or checkpoints. This bag will hold a laptop and maybe a binder for those who are planning on buying this bag for school or just carrying things around. Overall this bag is well built and would suggest this to everyone.

Great backpack with some interesting features that make it very versitile
Material seems very durable, and has great visibility at night. All zippers and pockets are in the right place but storage is limited. The upside is that it is far from bulky and even when empty, it stays close to the rider. The two Velcro ID holders on the shoulder strap are a nice touch. I use one side to Velcro my EZPass which works perfect at tolls. I leave my wallet in one chest pocket and my iphone in the other. My only complaint are the large chest buckles that require precise contact to secure them, but at only $100 I consider this a bargain.

Excellent choice if you don't need a lot of storage space
I've ridden about 600-800 miles with this backpack now and I must say it feels great on the back - very sturdy with the two front clips done up.
Pros: "water resistant" >>>In my experience with 30 mins of pouring down rain it is waterproof. Perhaps they didn't quite call it waterproof because it takes an hour or maybe a couple hours to soak through? I can't be sure but I can tell you this. After 30 mins of pouring rain, I took it off and visually looked it over and I couldn't even see a DROP of rain on it! The exterior was literally dry to the touch.
Veclro ID holders - they stay stuck on quite well.
The zippers are BIG - definitely going to stand the test of time for durability!
The walls of the backpack are very thick with multiple layers - I don't see this falling apart any time soon.
Very small in size - you really can't fit much more than the bare necessities in this bag IMO but that is no reason to give it less than a 5 star rating as that is how it was designed and advertised. I would like to see more depth inthe bag to allow thicker items to fit.
-Also be careful when clipping the front clips together because.....while fiddling with the clips hands-only (helmet was on and couldn't look down and see the clips), I guess I tried jamming them together at an angle and one of the center plastic teeth completely snapped off. Thankfully, it did not hinder the clip from functioning overall but it was disappointing to have that happen only a few days after I got the backpack. BUT AGAIN I SAY THIS IS MY FAULT, NOT THE BACKPACK's. DONT JAM THINGS IN SIDEWAYS AND YOU SHOULDN't HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT!
Overall I am very pleased to say this is my first official riding backpack - I'm really going to love the water resistant feature :D
