OGIO No Drag Mach 1 Backpack
Light and fits perfectly. Easy to adjust, enough space and high quality material (zippers etc.).

Let me start off by saying that I do like the backpack, but it does have some quirky features.
The Ogio Mach 5 pack is very comfortable while riding. It is barely noticeable, even at high speeds and when moving in and out of your seat in the twisties. I really liked that the pack is hydration compatible and used it quite often on the last 250 mile mountain ride. The organization inside is quite nice and the laptop pouch is handy. It is definitely not a "big" backpack, but it is expandable and holds a good amount of things: Laptop, hydration, shoes, rain gear, clothes, etc.
Now here are the quirky items that I found with this Mack 5. Fist off is the waste strap. The strap is definitely a welcomed addon to this pack, the problem lies where you actually bucket it. The buckle is really far on your right hip which makes it very difficult to snap with all your riding gear on. Next up is the visor pouch inside the pack. I love that they included this feature, but it is not removable. So if you are not using it, it's in the way.

Great bag for any rider
This is a great bag that seems to hug your back while riding. The shape is very comfortable and seems lend itself to staying on your back from the air pressure surrounding it. While riding, I cant even tell it is there. It has ample room for lots of things and the expansion zipper is welcome when carrying rain gear or other bulky items. My only complaint is that the visor storage seems a bit small for my helmet visor(Shoei RF-1200) and take up a bit too much room when in use. But it is still functional and I love being able to carry an extra visor.
In my opinion this is the best backpack for anyone that want to ride a motorcycle wearing a backpack.

As a golfer I went with Ogio knowing they make light weight durable products but I didn't expect such an amazing looking bag that barely moves when you ride. It has tons of storage and sits snug and comfy. The look is very sleek and overall amazing product

A backpack made for riders
For years I'd been using a cheap Walmart backpack when riding. But it never felt secure because I had to loosen the arm straps to accommodate my jacket's hump. And it lacked the space I needed. The Ogio more than fits my needs. Recently went to help a friend work on his bike. The Ogio easily held all my tools, including a full torque wrench and full wrench set. The pockets easily held the loose accessories organized and securely (anyone who has worked on a bike knows what I mean, like loose sockets and adapters). My intended purpose was for being able to carry my work clothes and boots when I rode in. And my camera + equipment when I'm out riding. Carrying my tools on a ride to help a friend tested it well. What I learned:
- The straps are very comfortable, easily adjustable for a good and secure fit. The additional chest and waist straps kept the Ogio from shifting and moving.
- The No Drag Mach 3 is huge! My Walmart Special couldn't hold my steel toed work boots. But the Ogio will. In fact when I went into RevZilla to check it out, the Ogio held my Walmart backpack! And when I got hunting for camera scenery it'll hold my camera, a small tripod, my tablet / laptop and extra lenses.
- Best of all... The Ogio No Drag Mach 3 looks fantastic. Definitely sport bike appropriate fashion

I've only had it for a few weeks but it has served me well. It is very light, durable, and has plenty of compartments, pockets, etc.

Designed with the motorcyclist in mind
This is a great backpack, with all the features it comes with. In my opinion, if money isn't a problem, then this will be the head turning backpack. You will buy it and you will enjoy it simply because you shelled out the money for it. Riding at 100+ speeds, you won't even know you have the backpack on. I can surprisingly fit a large amount into it, and still ride with it comfortably. After having the backpack for a month, you will start to see stiches coming out, other then that, the backpack is a keeper.

You don't even know it's there
I have a lot of backpacks that I have worn on my sportbike but this is the only one that fits perfectly to the point that you are unaware of it while riding. The size is perfect because I don't want to carry a lot of gear. Just a few items plus a shirt. My only criticism is with the waist strap. Good grief, do they really think a person can attach a fastener so far to the rear? The fastener does not need to be so far back where you have to be a contortionist to connect it. I finally gave up and removed the thing and have been happy ever since. I experience no movement from it's removal and am unsure as to why it is there in the first place. It is a great product however and I highly recommend it.
