OGIO No Drag Mach 5 Backpack
* Taking it off is easy because of the release strap.
* Putting it on is easy because of the straps ease of loosening and tightening.
* I have put the bag on with my jacket on/off, helmet on/off, while on the bike. My jacket has pads so I had to learn how to get it on and off without looking like a dork. Didn't take long.
* The interior is great, some of the straps didn't fit my daily needs so I just took them off.
* I would not recommend using the bag for carrying tons of stuff or things above a certain size. Such as a gaming laptop. But a console like a PS4 is fine.
* I really like the storage expansion zipper -- though that was hard to undo and really hard to re-zip.
On more than one occasion people have told me I look like a turtle. This is a bonus, not a negative :P

Great Backpack with lots of space
I got this backpack for school and accommodates all my books, papers, and folders well, I even have enough space to put my textile jacket in there if I use the expansion zippers which come in very useful many time. I feel the zippers could be better for the price and also the quality. after about a week or two of daily use the stitching for the waist strap came apart and i'm no longer able to use it, which upset me because I actually liked the waist strap. but overall I would recommend this bag if you have the money to spend for it.

Great fit, nice finish, perfect for commuting.
The backpack has an excellent fit and finish.n It has no drag when riding and is great for commuting. It is a little pricey but worth the money.
I only wish the bag would stand by itself when set down. Other than that I definitely recommend this product.

Great sport backpack minus one flaw.
Hey everyone! I love this pack and still enjoy it because I changed comm systems. I bought the pack specifically for a coast to coast trip that my best friend and I devices to do from Daytona beach across America to Seattle. The pack stood up to the worst heat temps and now to the coolest here back in Alaska. I love the lens pocket it has built in it. Every evening I was swapping lens from dark to clear to do our night runs. The padding is superb on the back! The expansion zipper was used all the time with clothing coming in and out. The one down fall I found and it was very annoying, was at the time of the trip, I had a different helmet that we installed the Sena Bluetooth on. The wiring that sticks out the back of the Bluetooth always would catch on the left strap of the backpack when I would turn to look for traffic which in turn would not allow my head to turn back to netural and give me a few seconds of panic. Lol. But now I own a Schuberth helmet and the all new 2015 SRC Bluetooth that Schuberth offers. Wow that's another review just waiting!! So I hope this helps everyone!!

Good for high speed riding.
The only two downsides are, that you have to take off the backpack to take things out, since the zipper is in the inside, and the shape of the backpack doesn't allow it to stand upright on its own.

No drag, perfect for commuting
I use this turtle shell for commuting. It can easily fit a laptop, shoes, jeans and hoodie - and there is still more room without using the extension zipper.
It feels tight, fits comfortably and there is no drag.

This backpack is perfect for day tripping.
Long story short. If you want a backpack that is comfortable and made well then this is the one for you. It holds enough for a day of travel (expandable size helps) fits very comfortable and straps are great. Everything is adjustable. I'm 6ft3 230lbs and it fits my frame with little adjustment. The waist strap would be better if it buckled in the middle rather than the far side. Otherwise I have no other complaints. Looks good feels good and price is good for the quality. Even though I may look like a hero in a half shell it's much better than most of the competing bags out there.

Nice bag but rarely use
Use my 20L Kreiga more often as it holds all I need most days, but this works great when I have a extra stuff to haul along with me.
