OGIO No Drag Mach 3 Backpack
Stylish, fits well, holds a lot
Love this back pack. I use it for everyday commuting, fits outfit, papers, lunch, breakfast, etc. Its a little futuristic, and a great conversation starter at work. Straps all tuck away nicely. I don't have any trouble with it hitting my helmet.

Comfortable, looks good, doesn't flap in the wind. Fits a laptop some tools and a change of clothes. Pretty much all you need!

Great bag for the working commuter
Really like this bag! Great looks and it really increases aerodynamics. One drawback I've encountered is the straps are a bit fussy when tightening/loosening. Also, the black zippers tend to blend in and can be a tad difficult to locate when wanting to access the bag. Minor points that could easily be fixed by the user.

Great backpack - not much storage space.
I used this bag for commuting for a few months before finally getting some luggage for my bike. Overall, I would recommend using bags mounted to the bike instead of to your back, but this does provide some convenience and a lower cost of entry than luggage.
This backpack is very well made and high quality. The zippers feel great and the finish is top notch. The straps are pretty innovative and removing the backpack after riding in an armored jacket is easy.
The laptop compartment was a very tight fit for my work computer, requiring me to remove the battery to squeeze it in. A laptop, a pair of shoes and a spare visor will fill the entire backpack.
If you are looking for a convenient option to carry a few things on your bike and don't need a lot of storage space, this is a great choice.

I love this backpack. VERY spacious. Easy to ride with. Does not open while riding like other backpacks. Has a lot of compartments for shoes, laptop and many others. I would DEFINITELY recommend this backpack to anyone looking for durable spacious backpack. Shipping was VERY fast. Description was VERY accurate.

Worth every cent
I had been wanting this bag for months before I finally gave in and purchased it back in October. The bag is is a little expensive but it just looks so boss I had to get it. Thanks to Revzilla and their awesome service, I got the Mach 5 in only like 3 days! and I fell in love with it. its so light weight when empty you wouldn't think its so durable- the shell is sturdy enough that I don't worry about anything I carry in it, and its very comfortable. the straps are perfect and dont get in the way, plus they adjust quite a bit and I dont worry about them tearing from me moving around on the bike like my last back pack. I use it for work mostly as I commute on my bike and I carry a ton of stuff in it, I've only ever had to unzip the expansion slots once. I also used it for hiking a lot since it has a place for my camel pak, oh also, I get a ton of compliments on it and its held up really well.
the only cons I can think of are that the waist straps are too short for my belly so I dont use them and the outer shell does scratch a bit easy but I take care of it (dont place it shell side down).
5/5 Love the bag I would have paid full price after using it

Once I put this backpack on it's like it isn't even there. In high winds there isn't any buffeting whatsoever, which is a nice change since my last backpack was like a parachute sometimes.
The one tradeoff is that it can't hold a ton of stuff.

This thing saved my life!
I wear this backpack every single time I ride, and I definitely feel the lack of drag compared to other, bulkier, backpacks. I had a Yamaha FZ6 that I got into an accident with so bad that the bike was totaled and, if it weren't for this backpack, I think I would have been run over. The car was coming from the oncoming lane, making a u-turn into my lane without yielding and I hit it, flipped over the car, and ended up in front of it as it completed the u-turn. The driver kept going for a little bit with me under the front of the car and it seemed to me like the only thing that kept me from being run over was the fact that this backpack was keeping me propped up enough to be dragged by the car (the only time this backpack caused a good kind of drag). It's not rated as having safety protection and I'm not advertising it as such, but it definitely did the job for me. Somehow it has almost no visible damage from the accident and I still wear it to this day (was 5 months ago).
Otherwise, it's spacious and I love the amount of pockets. I really like the fact that it zips up from the inside because I never worry about stuff falling out. Would recommend, except to cruiser riders, because I feel like the bottom isn't ideal and rests right on the back seat.
