Icon Squad 3 Mil-Spec Backpack
Highest Quality Construction
This back pack is attractive and practical. Especially nice touches are the velcro pads for holding identity cards for easy access on the shoulder harness. Also on the harness are easy zippered compartments for phone and wallet. This is a killer product.

Love this bag!
Use it when I need a little extra storage my soft Yamaha saddle bags can't fit or when I don't want the saddle bags on my bike. Even took it on a cruise worked perfectly to carry camera, GoPro, passports and all our other stuff from ship to island.

Great for commuting
I use this backpack every day, and it's held up really well for the most part. It fits a couple of sets of clothes and a pair of shoes, and it's so low profile that I forget it's there, even at highway speeds.
My only complaint is the velcro on the outside of the ID slip catches on everything, but especially my helmet and my hair (ouch!). It would be nice if one side of the slip were non-velcro, so that it didn't catch on everything.

Only one problem.
Yes, definitely get it.
The only problem I have is that my helmet catches on the Velcro; ONLY when I use the ID inserts. As a work around, I have been keeping them in my pockets. For now I adhere them only when needed. I tried repositioning but my body structure seems to work against me.
For now I will give it a good, but it approaches excellent!
Well done ICON.

Bought one about a year ago and I got less then I expected because I expected too much. This pack feels short on space but does well on your back. You can't even feel it when it's on there. Mounting the pack over your gear will not be a problem. If you are expecting to lug along more the just a computer, some notebooks and a small lunch look for something else.

This is one cool backpack! Got the hi-viz one and it looks great! Comfortable to wear, well made. I use it when riding to work, carries my tablet and misc other stuff. Okay, not a lot of room in the pack as the interior is small, but it meets my needs for daily commuting. Overnight--well, not enough room. You'd need a bigger pack for that, but this is perfect for the daily commute for me. Fast shipping too.

Great backpack. Just what I was looking for.
My bike is black. Black jacket. Black helmet with dark smoke visor. One day it dawned on me, maaayyybbee i should make myself more visible before one of these cagers takes me out. I have tons of respect for the guys rolling down the freeway with hi-vis everything but it's not for me. This backpack is a great compromise - high visibility in front and back but still stylish. Plus it's easy to leave at home if I want a more low-profile look, for whatever reason.
Lots of comments on here about the size/volume. If you really plan on trying to pack a lot of stuff then yeah you'd probably need a bigger backpack. For me I use it for commuting so it holds my laptop, sack lunch, and maybe a couple other small items without getting bulgy. I wouldn’t want anything bigger.
I got the orange backpack (and like it a lot). Are you thinking about getting the hi-vis yellow but think it might be a bit "too much" yellow? Nah, go for it. In the video and pictures online, the yellow and orange is all your eyes can focus on. When you actually get this backpack out of the box you realize it's just the right amount of hi-vis balanced with black. If i had it to do over again I'm sure the yellow would have been just fine.

This is a great, snug bag that everyone can see. There is plenty of room in this bag, but it isn't all that bulky when you don't have it full. I use one of the ID flaps for my company ID so I don't have to dig through everything to get into the office in the morning.
