Alpinestars Charger Backpack 4.4 5 10 10
Great for laptop! I use this bag just to carry a laptop (14" screen Samsung), its charger, and a small book. For that, it's perfect. It's thin and once I put it on, I forget that it's there. I wear it over a Dainese jacket with spine protector. The back of the backpack has padding around the top and sides, but not in the center. Seems like it was specifically designed to accommodate a spine protector. A little pricey, but it's perfect for what I use it for. February 16, 2014
Great Product Compact, great looking and versatile. Ease to put on, easy to take off. Great product overall. August 19, 2013
backpacks can you use some of the backpacks for school or no August 5, 2013
Lots of great features! I was very pleased with the purchase of this backpack. I love the helmet holder, the shoulder strap that unclips, and the multitude of pockets throughout! July 28, 2013
To small??? I don't get where a lot reviews say this pack is small. May be for a week long touring ride, but for daily commuting or 1 or 2 day over night trips this pack is perfect. I can easily get a couple change of clothes and more in this pack. The strap system works great. I forget I am wearing it. The pack is streamlined and is hardly noticeable. If it had included the rain cover like the Tech Aero it would be absolutely perfect. July 20, 2013
Excellent Great pack for riding. It's a little on the small side but it is designed for riding. Love the release buckle on the left shoulder strap, makes donning and doffing so much easier with a jacket on. April 23, 2013
love it I love this bag. So easy to put on and take off. Use it everyday for work. Good amount of storage for daily commutes. Looks awesome and feels secure when riding at high speeds. December 3, 2012
Great backpack! This backpack is great, very sleek and aerodynamic and stylish. The only con is there isn't much room in it. August 20, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
michael p: I commute to work on my bike every day, and I wanted a backpack that was small and inconspicuous. I don't need to carry much, so I didn't need anything bulky. I also really like the fact that the backpack carries a helmet. Jan 20, 2014
Mathieu F: compact yet convenient enough to carry simple stuff (books, extra gloves, etc). Small size force you to pack small and carry less weight on your back. Good day pack. Jan 3, 2014
Huang C: Faith in the brand is reason 1, the build-in helmet net another. Dec 15, 2013
robert w: Liked your discription on your video.Great stuff. You guys rock.Thanks Dec 2, 2013
Victor C: I saw it at a local store and thought it was awesome that it was small enough to meet my needs and still managed to have a net built in to carry a helmet. But they ran out and found it on sale here, so I purchased it and since it has arrived, I have never gone riding without it. I use it for school, work and even canyon rides...the amount of compartments inside is more than enough for what I need, including my laptop. Aug 22, 2013

robert w: Hi Wade- We stuffed two different riding jackets into my wifes Charger back-pack. One is a Hein Gericke Cadet,balistic nylon/leather with no armour. It fit OK. The other was a Tour Master Intake mesh w/ armour.We managed to stuff it in there, but the back pack was stuffed to fat to wear, so a light jacket fit but a larger one with armour would not. It's a nice back pack that fits my 5'6" wife well and carries a change of shoes and a days lunch easily. Hope this helps. Bob W Jan 17, 2014

michael p: I just put my RSD Ronin riding jacket in there with my laptop, and it fit no problem. There's not much more space for anything else, but I didn't have any trouble zipping it closed. I then put the backpack on and it fit fine. Other than the extra weight, it didn't seem bulky at all. Mar 9, 2014

A shopper asked: Could you put a day or two worth of clothing in it? Nov 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Silvina Porto: The backpack is a small to medium size. You can put clothing for one day including a pair of shoes. (For example: one pair of sneakers, one pair of jeans, a t-shirt, underwear, parfum, toothbrush, etc.) You could even put a waterproof coat or an internal lining of a jacket. I'd say the backpack has the correct size as to not overload it and make it too heavy. Is very comfortable and it integrates very well with the body.

I hope it helps.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
LorenW: It does have a sternum strap. It can be removed. I found the ergonomics of the bag to be good enough to where I didn't even need that strap. But if you want it, it is there. Jun 30, 2011
