Do not recommend for military personnel
This is a quality made pack with good storage, great high viz color, strong fasteners and rip-stop fabric. However, if you are a military member or work on a military installation there are few problems you should consider before you purchase this pack. 1. The pack has no shoulder adjustments straps that allow you to adjust the height that the pack sits on your back and this causes the pack to ride low on your back and that intern causes the hook and loop ID pockets (positioned toward the top of both vertical shoulder straps) to raise up and sit nearly on top of your shoulders rather than lower on your chest making them hard to access with a helmet on. 2. Because the ID pockets ride up on top of your shoulders the hook and loop fasteners can become stuck to the fabric on bottom of your helmet padding making it difficult to turn your head. Not being able to turn your head while ridding a motorcycle makes for a distracting and dangerous situation. 3. The hook and loop fasteners on the ID pockets are so strong that they are very difficult to open when not wearing gloves and almost impossible while wearing gloves. So in conclusion, this is a decent pack but there are a few concerns that need to be addressed by ICON before I would be willing to purchase one again or recommend this pack to another rider. Hey ICON.....just lower the ID pockets down lower on the chest pads.

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.

Hi-Viz Icon Quad 3
I was expecting a bit more room but it does the job. I bought it to commute to work everyday. It carry my 13 inch laptop and some other things with just fine and the laptop serves as a back protector. Lunch feed tight though. The color is way brighter in person that what it shows on the picture so it's great for safety and to be visible.

Great to be seen
Ordered this because I am required to have a reflective belt or vest while riding on military bases, plus it is good to be seen period when riding an all black bike. Holds my coffee and other important items for rides. I was not fond of the two shoulder credential holders. There placement is not great and can be difficult to use while gloves on. Decided to keep my credentials in the chest pockets. Over all, great backpack.

Nice smaller size. Good if you want high-vis backpack.
I got this backpack to serve 2 purposes. One is to carry things obviously. The other is to use it in place of a high-vis jacket. And I think it serves both purposes fairly well.

It looks good. The finish is great. I feel it kind of droops or sags down a bit more than I'd like but that isn't too much of a big deal.

Can slip in a back protector if you want but I prefer mine in my jacket and or a stand-alone one.

Truthfully seems overpriced, but then that can be said about any motorcycle accessory or gear. Sigh.

Recommended with a caveat
As a user of the previous version of this bag (Squad 2 Mil-Spec backpack) I feel that I am qualified to answer this question with a basis for comparison to other products I've used. The previous version was a great backpack with lots of storage space. As a military member, I'm required to bring at least 2 changes of clothes (PT gear for the gym plus my uniform and sometimes civvies as well). The Squad 2 had enough space for me to carry everything I needed and unfortunately, the Squad 3 does not. If it were a little larger with a few more extra pockets it would really make life a lot easier. I'm also not a fan of the velcro on the straps by the helmet as it scratches the padding of my helmet and causes the pad to fray. The bag itself is well made and the material is very durable. If you don't need a big bag, I highly recommend this one.

Had to return it
I am almost 5'4" and under 115 lbs. I was looking for a backpack for commuting to the office, and something hi-vis to make me stand out to the sleepy drivers I encounter. Unfortunately, I had to return this. It would hold my work laptop but not much else because of the low-profile design. That may be fine for other riders, but I couldn't fit all I needed to in the pack. Also, this says the harness straps help redistribute the weight across the sternum. That may be true for men, but the weight distribution was not a good fit on my back/chest, and you can only adjust straps on the width, not on the length. I did like the elastic stays that help keep the extra webbing under control -- my current backpack doesn't have that, and since I am smaller, I always have long web trails if I don't wrap them up somehow. One more thing - there's some kind of water-resistant plastic-y coating on the pack, which was damaged/cracking in one of the top corners of the outer pocket. Not in a big way, but I wondered how it would hold up over time. I really wanted to like this pack but it just didn't work for me. However, for a broad-chested man who needs added visibility, and isn't looking to carry much more than a laptop and files, this may be a good option.

I got a sour deal
I bought this backpack a couple of months ago. I think the concept is brilliant: its a freakin' a Hi-Viz backpack, how cool is that?. When I got it I was very impressed with the features. But workmanship on my backpack is terrible: the plastic insulation on the zippers has come off. It has a big hole where some of the stitching came off. The shoulder straps have started to come apart at the seam. It still is water resistant and I still use it to carry my laptop and my everyday stuff to work, but I'm really disappointed that it's falling apart so quickly. Great concept, really poor execution. I am by all means carefull with my stuff. But even with care, the thing is just coming apart.

good materials but storage capacity is poor and fit is tricky
Bag looks real sturdy and hi viz is excellent.
There are some good ideas behind the making but it's poorly executed.
Velcro ID holders (which attracted me to the bag in the first place) are practical.
Smaller and lower profile is what I was looking for, but the way it's compartamentalized just wastes a lot of space. I have tried smaller bags into which I can fit more stuff and in a more practical way.
It's slightly on the heavy side.
But the real dealbreaker for me is fit. You can adjust the tightness of the chest harness just fine, but you can't adjust the length, which makes it extremely uncomfortable if you're not the right size. I'm 5'7'' and the fit was just terrible.
If you're willing to risk it on the fit (which I wouldn't recommend because poor fit on a motorcycle backpack will be terrible for your back) think twice about whether you want the hi viz option. In my case I found it to be too extreme for common usage. I wouldn't be completely comfortable walking into a meeting wearing the hi viz.

Love It!
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.

I love this backpack, definitely holds more than i thought it would. I got the orange. It's high viz, matches my Joe rocket speedmaster jacket, and i don't even feel it on my back, even on long trips. Holds a change of clothes, some water bottles, phone charger, and my little bike tool kit. Definitely recommend this product!

Very well made. Hi Viz is important. Easy to put on and take off. Comfortable. Use to carry lunch and some other small items to my daily work commute on my 821 Ducati Monster.
Roberto A on Feb 10, 2016
Being in the military, we are required to wear high-vis/reflective belts or gear when riding. I chose this backpack due to those two features, but also because it has the ID flap on the chest, which will make going through the gate a breeze. It looks small, though...kinda wish they made V3 more like V2, without the arm bands. I'm not even sure I could fit my boots in this bag, but I guess we'll see when it arrives.

redlinerider454 on Aug 11, 2014
I needed a safety vest but was concerned about my current backpack nullifying the hi viz effect. I think this is promising because the pack is small and low profile, which is what I prefer for commuting. The chest vest with two clips hopefully will keep it snug and it'll be nice to have a hi viz surface in the front. I'm not military, just a safety conscious commuter and city rider.

paul w on Jun 27, 2014
I'm hoping this (plus a hi-vis helmet) will meet the safety vest requirement that I need to follow to ride on base, since wearing a safety vest over my Aerostich suit isn't something I want to do. Nor do I wish to hide my mandatory hi-vis gear under a backpack, although this seems to be accepted by military leadership.
K B on Jun 16, 2014
I currently have the Squad 2 which I REALLY like but it's too bulky to fit into my locker at the gym or at work so I'm hoping this one is slimmer. I love how highly reflective the Squad 2 is at least and hoping the 3 is just as much.

Thank you.
A shopper on Nov 21, 2015
Is that pocket a laptop OR D30 back protector pocket? Or is there a capacity for both simultaneously?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In my opinion, this backpack has two compartment, large enough to hold a laptop and a D30 back protector. This backpack has been very useful and a great purchase.
Is it waterproof enough to protect a laptop from rain?
mark f on Sep 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is more water resistant, but not fully waterproof. a light passing shower while moving won't be a problem. Driving stop and go during a rain shower would expose the contents inside to water and moisture though. Tons of room to carry a good amount of stuff given the soft material and ability to stretch.
Is the back protector sold separately? ...If so which one is it ...Many thanks
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Aloha to you! There is no back protector for this...this is just a motorcycle travel pack. It only has padding on the back that lifts the pack off your back to ensure there's air flow...and it works well at that.

I'm a military guy and commit daily here in Hawaii (don't be jealous)...I loved the way my pack looked, but if you are considering buying this ICON pack...recommend that you look at it in person (if you are lucky enough to be somewhere that you can do that). Honestly, the pack is too small to carry all that much. I WANTED to like this, but it doesn't have a lot of room. I upgraded to the Kriega R20, which is waterproof, and had a LOT of space for me to carry a large water bottle, wet suit, and a lunch bag....and a bunch of other crap in the zippered pockets.

If you are looking for a sleek, low profile, small pack, then this is a great option. But if you are looking for something that can actually HOLD stuff and is waterproof, recommend you look to other options, like the Kriega I mentioned.

Hope that this helps! Aloha Ray
What is the capacity of this backpack (in liters)?
A shopper on May 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In liters? I have no idea.

However, I use it for my work clothes when I ride to work. It fits one pair of shoes, jeans, shirts, socks and a small lunch. I keep some small stuff in the front vertical pouch like my cell phone, wallet and keys.

Great pack, it really stays put. I would like it if it was a little bigger. I really have to stuff everything in there.
What are this product's dimensions? What are the dimensions of the laptop compartment?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The external dimensions of the pack are approximately 19 x 11 x 5 inches. The internal laptop compartment dimensions are 17 x 10.5 x 1.5 inches.
Will a camel bak bladder work with this?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I think it would @Fjrrider. I have generic camel back and with a little work to both pieces of gear you could probably have a pretty sweet setup (perhaps velco, I need to try this now haha).

Just placing the bladder in the Icon bag may be a little awkward though.
