OGIO No Drag Mach 3 Backpack
Excellent for any Rider
I love the design of the pack. It's difficult to find a pack that is aerodynamic enough to ride with since most are easily pushed and pulled by the wind. However the style of this pack is so well designed I can barely tell that I'm wearing it while I'm riding. The storage capacity is amazing. I can fit all my books for my classes of the day and my 15 inch laptop with no problems. My one and only complaint is that the waist strap is a little short but that may be a personal problem I guess. Overall I highly recommend this to anyone who travels for school or for a job this is your backpack. It won't set you back a huge amount of money so pull the trigger and get it from Revzilla, reached my place in three days.

Great and practicle.
I was looking for a first backpack. I was recommended this product by a co-worker who used to work at a motorcycle store. I was not let down. This product has room for extra clothes, my technology, and weighs nothing. I love it. Recommend this to everyone.

So first, opportunities for improvement:
- It's a little bigger\heavier than I imagined and the hardshell means you can't fit as much as you'd think within than space
- The access from the back is questionable. It's cool than you don't wonder if you closed it, but at the same time, it's a little awkward and it doesn't stand up when opened.
- The fit is a little off. I feel like I'm pretty much average in most respects (5'10", 160lbs, average build) and the shoulder straps are a little awkward. It also doesn't really stay in contact with your back unless you're hunched over.
That said, it looks somewhat professional, it doesn't make a ton of noise flapping around in the wind like most, and the organizer thing is nice for a laptop. Will I keep using it? Yes. Will I try something different next time around? Probably.

Comfortable & they thought of everything
I agree with most of what TX1kSRR mentioned.
The difficulty in turning your head is the most noticeable issue with this pack. This only affects me laterally though, and since I usually tuck under my windscreen and look more down and to the side rather than lateral this isn't much of a big deal.
The only other issue is when it is stuffed to the gills - extension pocket included - the bottom strap is hard to snap in (I'm in shape so for you big fellers this isn't for you if you'll be maxing it's capacity).
I rode from Phoenix to San Diego and back with shoes, sandals, laptop, clothes and toiletries with this puppy and it was Super comfortable at speeds I shouldn't have been riding. I can't really comment on sweat since I live in a desert & SD is 72 all year 'round. The little pouch that slides on the bottom strap is perfect for cash, keys, cards & ID too and it's small enough to be snug and non-inhibiting when tucked. Also the over-the-shoulder snap makes it really easy to take on & off.
I recommend it 95%.

Great over all, just needs a few things to be perfect
First the bad,
The clips are a little flimsy.. I would like to see a sturdier main clip for the sternum clip and waist clip.
When you put a pair of shoes size 10 1/2 the holders seem to be more of a hassle then a helper, also makes the back portion budge out and you have to shift the back around to get it to fit right.
When you wear a helmet the bag makes it hard to turn your head around when in an attack position.
100 degree heat and a 45min ride.... better ring out your shirt when you’re done.
Able to put a shirt, shoes, and work items in the pack without worrying about getting things all dirty or wrinkly. Like the way it feels secure on your back while riding, does not sway back or forth. Looks great! Easy to put on and off with a jacket on

All around great buy.
This product has been a great help. The fit is great, and it holds a surprising amount.

Comfortable and stylish
1 - I read the other reviews that said that it was more comfortable than other backpacks and I scoffed, but they were right. There's something about the way this bag sits that does make it so much more comfortable. And on my back is workout clothes, lunch, work shoes, and sometimes breakfast; it all fits and it's all comfortable.
2 - Just about every time I stop, I get compliments on this bag; at the gas pump, at the grocery store parking lot, at a stop light even; it's a good looking bag and it doesn't overwhelm my 5'5" frame.
A good purchase!
One bad point - I used to pack my lunch in rectangle glass containers and because of the way the bag is shaped, they don't fit. So if you carry a lot of boxy items, this might not be the bag for you...

Expensive, but it's all awesome
Fit is great, space is great, it's a great package. Convenience of the visor slip is awesome, and the overall finish of the backpack is great. Gives plenty of space, and the pockets all work out great. Only knock is that it's pretty darn expensive, and we will see how durability plays out. Too soon to tell.
