Icon Squad 3 Backpack
I bought this backpack mainly for taking some gym with me. My old backpack was for snowboarding, so it had the center straps and was bigger, but wasn't made for speed. This ICON backpack is much better quality. The zippers are protected. The materials are thicker and stronger. And the storage is more elaborate. This has all the spaces I need without being large. I'm 5'8 and this backpack fits my back. In fact, it goes low which is nice so my clothes don't ride up, and that is true for the chest pad; it holds clothes in place and is more comfortable. If I was a student wanting to carry many books and a large laptop this wouldn't be for me. But it is perfect as I need it. Large enough for some items, but not so large it is bulky--it feels small on the back, but has a general compartment, a laptop compartments and another area for small items, plus cell phone and other small spots. It is full of features.
The only thing I didn't like was that the ID holders, which I don't need, are velcro on both sides, and it sticks to the bottom of my helmet as I turn to look over my shoulder, so I just removed them. I'm sure someone could make a velcro top to cover any exposed bits or something.

I was so pumped for this backpack for riding and the first time I took it out the whole bottom left strap ripped right out of the stitching I'm usually a huge icon fan but never again I would have rathered flushed the 100$ then spend it on this and have it fall apart on me in the first use

sturdy and easy to manipulate
The only downside is the space available in the bag.

Lots of space to put every thing and love the reflectivity for the added safety

Not quite what I was hoping for
The pack itself fits very well and is extremely secure. However, it's a lot smaller than I thought it would be, and the credentials flap isn't always visible, which it needs to be for me. You have to open it up to show the credentials which is inconvenient for me.

This has everything I wanted in a riding pack
This has everything I wanted in a riding pack. It surprisingly fits everything I need it to from my laptop to my gym clothes. I ride a sports bike and this backpack takes a ton on strain off my neck and back. Highly recommended. The only thing I didn't love about the pack is the plastic clips they used for the chest straps.

This is a beast of a backpack. Seems like it is super tough and should last. It's small and lightweight but big enough to fit my 15.6 inch laptop perfectly. use it for back and forth trips to work and the gym or overnighters.

I bought this back because it wasn't too big. The bag sits high which is great for wearing when riding. The quality looks and feels very good.
