OGIO No Drag Backpack
I carry important papers. There is no chance of this thing blowing open on the highway. I like the compartments inside. It is fairly simple. It's lighter than I thought it was going to be. It's not huge. I can put a sweat shirt, shoes, thermos, books, laptop, etc. with no problem. It's good for that. I used to use my other backpack for grocery shopping and three-day trips. This pack is not quite big enough for that. Once you get used to not having outside pockets, you will appreciate the security this pack offers.

Feel is great but a bit large for me
It looks posh and definitely stores a lot of items. It's a bit bulky for my taste b/c I don't carry too much with me when I ride and it does cover up most of my entire back (I'm 5'7).
The material does fray a bit easy as well. I rubbed it against a locker placing it inside and it frayed quite easily.

Smaller than it looks inside
I'm a Digital Art major in college and I ride my bike to classes, so I needed a backpack that could handle that. The zip out panel in the backpack neatly carries my 13" laptop, 14" drawing tablet, charging cables for both, stylus, tablet computer, and various writing tools and chargers.
The cavity on the inside looks rather large, but it actually holds a little less that it looks like it can. With the zip out panel fully loaded I'm lucky to fit a textbook and a notebook in the cavity, much less anything else. If you're looking to use this as a proxy for a trunk I'd look elsewhere.
My only other complaint is that the pouch that holds the hydration pack isn't waterproof, so if there's a leak, or just too much condensation from the reservoir, you could end up with water down your butt, or a wrecked laptop. not cool.
The reflective tubes on the outside of the backpack are INCREDIBLY reflective. Even the slightest amount of light on them makes them go from drab gray to brilliant white pretty fast, so this backpack is great for staying visible at night.
overall I like it, and it has worked well for my needs, but it could be better.

It is a very neat product, but I am still figuring out if worth the cost.
Pros: Nice design,
Helmet hood is a plus but it doesnt fit my large helmet,
Storage pocket is pretty much water proof because zippers are on the part that touches your back.
Cons: The price is high,
My helmet doesn't fit in helmet hood and the hood is why I bought this one,
The backpack itself is formed and rigid so it kind of looks funny.
Overall: Expensive, bad helmet hood, but neat features.

It has a fair ammount of room for a no drag backpack. Its super comfy when riding even so much that you really cannot feel it there. Tons of pockets inside and the build quality is top of the line. I have fun riding with this on my back it truely was made for a motorcycle rider. I recommend this bag to anyone looking for a stylish yet super functional backpack... this is the one!

Looks and feels awesome
This is a great backpack. I couldn't be happier with my choice. Does not move at all when you're riding at high speeds, and the reflective strips on the outside are really reflective, I mean REAL reflective.

Comfortable, holds a lot. My son even uses it as his regular backpack when he isn't on his bike.
