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.

Good enough. 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. September 1, 2015
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. August 5, 2015
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.

Great bag 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. May 18, 2015
Great Pack. Just get it Not just for riding. Everything is well designed and ergonomic. Everything makes sense. I just got it so I don't know about durability. May 15, 2015
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. April 11, 2015
High Quality Backpack VERY SMALL I use this backpack to commute 25 minutes to school daily. It is extremely comfortable, and I love the harness system it uses. It gives you lots of room around your shoulders for all different types of riding positions. This backpack seems to be constructed of high quality and highly visible materials. I've had it for two months now and none of the seams are ripping. I love how bright and comfortable it is. The front vest part of the backpack had two pockets that are great for a wallet/phone and the ID holder is perfect for my school ID. The large strap on the back is great for hooking your helmet up to when you get off the bike All that being said, it is extremely small! I can fit my 15in laptop, a text book, and a 1.5 inch binder at most. In terms of motorcycle gear I can fit my Icon PDX raincoat, and a pair of full gauntlet gloves and some tools. I wish this backpack could stretch to allow for more items to be placed in it! February 17, 2015

RUBEN F: Space is limited , I thought it would be higher. And although I'm not a big guy (Size MD and 79 kgs . ) I can not find a comfortable fit , I could not make it my favorite bacpack , looks great but would not buy. Apr 28, 2015
KHIO S: need a good gym bag for riding Apr 20, 2015

T E: the orange color for visibility, and many features Jan 10, 2015
Lishia I: Picked this for my husband for Christmas, he wanted a Hi-Viz pack for commuting to/from university! This was the most hi-viz pack I could find. I hope he likes it! Dec 9, 2014
David C: I needed a small backpack with hi-viz. This fit the bill. Oct 31, 2014
Joshua S: Military requires an orange riding vest for safety. This backpack lets me pick whatever I want to wear and still have an orange vest/carry ability. Oct 17, 2014
Luisito M: Safety & practice use for my needs Aug 30, 2014
Ethan B: Looks sweet and I would like a little bag to carry some school supplies in, and i'll use it for refreshments on my weekend rides. Aug 11, 2014
Matthew N: 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. Aug 1, 2014
Anthony V: Looks; practicality; works great. Jul 23, 2014
justin h: military Jul 17, 2014
Steven B: I wanted to have a hi-viz backpack for when I ride the bike roads to and from my gym at night. I like the icon brand, it also has a military vibe which is cool. Jul 7, 2014
scott n: I am military and needed mil spec gear Jun 29, 2014
paul w: i commute almost everyday, like the style and useability.its big enough to hold my work clothes , high viz is great also! Jun 27, 2014
K B: 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. Jun 16, 2014
Alan W: 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. Jun 11, 2014
Emmanuel H: Cause I need a new backpack and I needed one that I can ride on a military post Jun 4, 2014
MICHAEL V: This backpack is a very convenient way to meet DoD requirements for brightly colored and reflective apparel. As a military rider, I appreciate blending the safety requirement and functionality into one accessory. May 7, 2014
Warren H: Needed something for my lunch and gear. Also wanted something. Hi viz May 4, 2014
Taylor B: I'm required to have a high vis vest when I ride on base and this was perfect considering it was high vis and doubles as a backpack. Apr 20, 2014
Issac R: Been looking for a good riding bag. Seeing how I don't carry much but a couple of phone chargers and my lunch on a daily basis, figured this would fit the bill. I'll be back soon to give a better review after a little ride time. Mar 23, 2014
Daniel L: Great pack Mar 18, 2014
A S: Need somewhere to put my uniform while I ride to work and I like the look and style of the bag. Mar 8, 2014

Kao S: carry light snack and water for a work.... Feb 4, 2014
David V: I liked the design, the color and, according to reviews, it's a good product Dec 10, 2013
Carlos J Soto V: I choose this bag for the low profile and the access on the shoulders pockets for my wallet and cellphone. Not too much space you can fit a 15" laptop your jacket liner extra gloves and clothes and a few snacks good for a day ride. Dec 2, 2013
Thomas Y: Needed a carry pack for both adventure riding and mountain biking. Dec 2, 2013
Daniel G: I loved how it essentially is a reflective vest and backpack all in one. Perfect for carrying my 15" laptop around along with plenty of other items. Nov 13, 2013
Anthony B: They let the deaf drive but not the blind. Bright orange backpack says "HI, I'M RIGHT HERE!". Nov 13, 2013
Donald P: This back pack works great. It's low profile and the High-Vis Yellow meets the requirements on the military base where I work. It's light and comfortable with enough room to carry a Macbook Pro, and external drive and bunch of GoPro gear. Sep 18, 2013
Patricia K: The main reason is because it has ID holders that are easy to access. Another reason is because i can put an ipod and run the earphones up the straps Sep 9, 2013
david r: visibility Aug 19, 2013
E T: I bought this because I look like a black power ranger in my gear so i'm pretty invisible at night. This should help with visibility. Aug 12, 2013
mark f asked: Is it waterproof enough to protect a laptop from rain? Sep 4, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Thomas Y: 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.

A shopper asked: Is the back protector sold separately? ...If so which one is it ...Many thanks Nov 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ray M: 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

A shopper asked: What is the capacity of this backpack (in liters)? May 18, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph G: 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.

A shopper asked: Will a camel bak bladder work with this? Feb 25, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (1)
Sean M: 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.
Apr 2, 2013
Reply to Sean Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Thomas K: There is room for the bladder in the laptop compartment but there isnt really a good loop for the hose to go through to route to the front so you would need some sort of retention clip. I've used plastic mil-caribeeners for non specific packs before Jan 28, 2014
Reply to Thomas Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: This backpack wasn't specifically designed to hold a water bladder, but there is enough room for one inside of the pack. You would need to get creative when securing the hose for the Camel Bak though as this backpack does not have loops for one. Feb 26, 2013
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
ThatOneGuy87: Yes it would. I never thought of this but I'm gonna start caring the bladder for this weekends ride. It's not designed to work with one as far as I know but I'll improvise & make it work. Mar 18, 2013
