OGIO Rebel Backpack
Good overall budget backpack.
Its a great looking backpack and you cant tell is better quality than most brands. However, I was disappointed with the lack of pockets. Especially the fact that its listed to have a "Zippered fleece lined top valuables pocket" and has no such thing. Even the most basic of backpacks these days have smaller fleece lined pouches for phone sized electronics. Really wish this wasn't advertised incorrectly, as I would've spent a bit more for the higher end renegade bag.

I Got the nuclear color scheme for visibility. Well made. Secure. Easily holds my mac and a bunch of other useless junk. Nobody misses seeing me riding down the road so mission accomplished.

A little expensive but nice backpack
A slight bit smaller than expected but nice backpack regardless. It should float more around the $40 range though in my opinion. No regrets!

It's a Backpack!
Overall solid backpack. I've learned over the years that many backpacks outright LIE about the size of the laptop compartment, and my 15" MacBook Pro either doesn't fit at all, or at best, doesn't fit well, in them. The OGIO Rebel has a very spacious laptop compartment, and my computer fits nicely in it. I also carry my portfolio, leather organizer, and a lot of other various computer equipment, portable hard drives, and other odds and ends for work in it, and it has enough pockets, sleeves, and compartments for me too satisfy my OCD and carry everything in a fairly organized manner.
The large main compartment, in addition to my computer in the laptop sleeve, easily holds the portfolio and organizer, as well as the zip-out vest liner of my riding jacket, plus a few other bulky items I often toss in there (extra shoes, etc.).
Comfortable straps, sternum strap to help free up your shoulders while riding, and external side pockets and adjustable straps on the back add to the Rebel's versatility.
Construction seems nice and durable. Plus, the pack is rigid and well built enough that it stands up nicely on its own, which is a nice touch.

Love the colors and like the extra pouches!
Nice backpack with extra pouches. Much more durable for use as a school backpack and hope to get a few years out of it. The vinyl on the large inner pouch will determine the durability over time for me. We decided on this brand because our oldest son has an Ogio golf bag and are pleased with it.

I bought this because I have to carry a laptop for work, but I still want to ride. My HP Elitebook laptop fits perfectly, and I can make it extra snug by snaking the power cord under the laptop. As a female, this pack is a little wide on me, but it carries what I need for a commute so it's doable. I love the honeycomb design and the bright color, but I do wish there was more reflective material on the sides of the pack; also, this backpack is slightly water resistant, but NOT waterproof. I don't mind this since I don't make a point of driving when it's pouring out, but for those who are more adventurous than I, keep in mind that if it's drenched outside, the inside of your pack will be damp, too.
Overall a wonderful item for the price.

I think the front pocket could have been a little bigger. Also maybe some more little pockets on the backpack would be nice. Other than that this is a fantastic backpack and holds a ton of stuff. Literally could hold all my books and some. Great backpack so far.

Great pack, just over priced.
So far it seems like a very durable pack. Only thing missing is a phone holster on one of the straps.
