great backpack...for skinny people
I recommend this backpack with just a lil word of caution.
1. The straps dig into your shoulders. The shoulders straps don't curve in, so if you're not a toothpick, the straps will be digging into your shoulders. This is my biggest issue with the bag. It make the bag uncomfortable. I have a 52 inch chest.
2.You can't really fit much in it. The padding on the underside of the pack, that cushions your back, and leaves a space for air flow...takes up a good bit of the space in the backpack itself.
3. the waist/chest straps are hard to attach. The waist and chest straps are put on the sides of the back instead of connecting at the middle, so it wont scratch the tank, but at 245 lbs of beef, and a jacket on, I can't get my hands in place to connect them.
4. Price...it is just a backpack...$150 is a bit much
1. the bag is well built, and has a premium look and feel to it
2. it stays in place. never have I felt the bag move or lift at high speeds.
3. Organizer pockets are plentiful. They are pretty good and sized right for various items.
4. Underside opening: you'll never worry that the wind has opened the bag and your stuff is all over the highway.
5. the bag disappears on your back. you hardly even feel it

I bought this Backpack for a cheap alternative to carrying a few grocery items. This bag has helped a lot and is super high quality. It feels comfortable on my back and has lots of storage space. While it may be a little pricey, I think it is well worth it.

Used for a couple weeks and love it
I have used this now for a couple weeks and love it. I wasn't sure on getting it because of the price, but it's well worth the cost. Very nice while riding and I don't really know it's there. I use this mostly for commuting to work, but it can easily be used for a weekend ride bag.

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.

Great pack! Tons of room! Excellent design!
I've had this pack for over a week and have used it extensively. Been commuting with it and if fits all my stuff with plenty of room. I carry my laptop, power cords, shoes, water and coffee mugs, etc. with no problems. Very comfortable to wear with this gear (weight distributed well).
I will agree the lap belt should be longer as with gear and my leather on I can't connect the belt. Also the side clasp is a good idea to prevent scratching a tank, but it's so far over to the side it is difficult to connect. I removed the lap belts completely and still the pack is comfortable. I will be getting some longer webbing to make a new lap belt.
Pack is well designed, tough, functional and looks great. Highly recommend.

Awesome concept. Poor execution.
I was really looking forward to getting this pack. It looks awesome and the concept of it seemed so promising. Upon receiving the pack, I thought it was great. It is a really great looking pack and it just feels like a top quality product.
Unfortunately, it just does not perform well, in my opinion. It fails in execution and functionality. First, the molded shape of the pack does not allow you to fit as much as is advertised. The picture provided is tremendously misleading. Once I had my laptop in, it was a pain getting anything else to fit. Clothes are fine, but I was planning on using it for school. Fitting my things, plus the laptop did not work.
Another failed aspect is the helmet visor padded protective compartment. I was excited to be able to wear my dark smoke face shield during the day and carrying my clear one in the pack for night riding. However, the holder does not hold the face shield very well AND with that in, plus my laptop, I could not close the backpack, even with opening the expansion portion.
The pack honestly caused more frustration and pain than any other backpack. I tried really hard to convince myself that it was a great buy, but I had to return it. I think I'm just going to get the Alpinestars Charger Backpack.
Unfortunately, I do not recommend this backpack.
