Alpinestars Tech Aero Backpack 4.5 5 70 70
all around great pack.fits well while riding. Great Design For Traveling. No Zipper Issues. Really Like The Detachable Shoulder Strap Makes It Take It Off When Wearing Full Gear. Like The Full Adjustable Straps. Lots Of Pockets To Store Things September 30, 2014
Great for everyday gear and commuting. Seems well put together. Pretty easy to get on even over a still leather jacket. Not sure I'm in love with the map pocket on the sternum straps but it looks easy enough to remove. Have no use for the helmet carrier on the back. I can't imaging walking around with a helmet hanging on the back like Quasimodo. Doesn't hold much even with the expansion panels unzipped but suits my purpose. September 25, 2014
Amazing Backpack!!! First Riding backpack i have owned but compared to my Oakley and UA backpacks of the same price range it is similarly made (i.e quality). Road around with it fully packed with, shoes, laptop, school books, and a lunch and it held up fine (lunch was smashed but boohoo who cares) didn't shift or move too much. It straps in sturdy with just the hip strap fastened and with the chest map piece it feels even more secure. Best part? The features! From the rain cover to the strap holders to the helmet straps it feels like it was made to handle most if not all city commuting necessities. Things i noted from other reviews, the helmet strap thing actually did not make me look too "hunch backy" however it is not slims McGee either. To me, not an issue. The other thing was the zippers, i thought people were just being wimps about the zippers being hard to operate but it is in fact true. It requires concentration and two hands (most of the time) so if you plan on taking things out while you ride it will be difficult. Over all: Looks beastly, holds on tight, doesn't feel cheap, lots of features. If you have the money buy it. if not, get the money and buy it. Simple. August 12, 2014
Great Riding Pack I got this as a Christmas gift from my wife, so it's more than I would have spent on myself. It's a great pack, but I don't know if the price is due to some of the features I ended up deleting. I made a few tweaks like cutting out the rain cover to add more outer storage. I also removed the cross straps and map holder to remove wind flapping clutter, and I'm probably going to do the same with the hide-away helmet holder to get even more outer storage. One thing I don't like is the framing for one of the vents interferes with the main zipper, so it gets stuck trying to open it. Also, there's very little external storage (which is why I tweaked it to add pockets), but the internal pockets and nets almost make up for that. It's also deceptively roomy inside. I had enough room for my laptop, a small space heater, my summer riding jacket, a spare pair of socks, and all the various pens, pads, and other miscellaneous items. What more could you ask for? July 9, 2014
Expansive but worth it! I bought few backpacks prior to this one, and I think this is the one. The bag is high quality bag. Have great protection from the rain (zippers are covered with nylon material beside cover that is part of the bag). Have helmet carrier attached to the bag. Have plenty storage for my laptop, 2 tablets and some other electronics. I definitely recommend this backpack. Points to consider: no bottle holder pockets that could be in my opinion part of the bag. It is great for commuting, but not enough space top add shoes and clothes if you already have your electronics in. I definitely recommend this one and I try few others in the past (like Givi 2.0, Ogio and others). June 14, 2014
Great backpack, bad zippers. This backpack is amazing for daily use/commuting. I been using it every day for a little more than a yr now. The rain cover is great. It keeps my laptops and belongings dry. The waist pockets, the chest "pocket". Most of the pockets are great except the one for the "cellphone" on the shoulder strap. Is so small that it fits perfectly for my garage door beeper. I barely use the helmet pocket. I think is a weird hunchback. My problem is that two days ago one of the zippers broke and the other is on it's way. The backpack can be perfect but without functional zippers it's really a let down. June 8, 2014
Okay bag for the price I got this bag when it was on sale for $100, but normally I wouldn't purchase this bag for full price. That being said, it has a lot of neat features that are good for motorcycling. The helmet holder and the rain shield pouch are all nice. One major problem I have with this is the quick release. It works great when you want to take off your bag, but it comes off too easily when riding. I had it come off on me during headchecks on the freeways or just stretching at a light. I had to zip tie the thing together to prevent it from happening. Pros: nice features plenty of room in the bag looks nice Cons: quick release pricey April 24, 2014
Great bag, lots of extras. It really is an awesome bag. I use it to ride for class every day, easy to go from riding to walking around campus. Fits snug and i like the heavy duty chest piece that connects the two shoulder straps. The phone pocket doest fit an actual phone, doesn't fit my iPhone 5 even so I took it off. Only other complaint is that the laptop pocket could be better designed, Its kind of floppy and just bugs me when there isn't a laptop inside. Could be a few more pockets but maybe I have too much stuff. Great bag, good price, great quality. April 15, 2014

Kelly J: It looks like a high-quality, flexible pack. Jan 16, 2015
justin f: Reviews from the video Dec 17, 2014
Garrett H: Best back pack I have ever had. It has everything I need and very good quality. I've had this for a year and a half at least and have not had a single issue. Everything is still top notch and I commute with it 2-3 times a week. Rain or shine, this backpack is nice. Nov 23, 2014
L A: Greatest Motorcycle backpack there is for students in my opinion! Holds my lap top, math book (like 2in thick), 2 note books, shoes, water bottle, and hats. I can also fit my phone and wallet into the outside media pockets, my moto info in a small secure pocket inside, my garage door opener in the left side pouch and my night vest in the other. I can easily protect all this stuff by using the super handy fold out rain cover. Does all i ask of it and more, highly recommended! Oct 8, 2014
Roland L: needed a backpack for riding in the wet Oct 6, 2014
daniel s: Needed a top quality riding bag. love the back protector option as well though with as thick as the bag is im not sure its needed.
Selected this bag over others because of how low profile it is empty, which is how i carry it most often, but with the ability to expand for rather large loads. i recently had a 5lb bag of raw corn and the waterproof liner for my jacket in it with some room to spare.

Ron T: Better than the Ogio Mach 5 I initially bought. Sep 4, 2014
Clinton A C: Needed a backpack for my daily commute and the A* Tech Aero has exceeded my expectations. The rain cover has come in handy down here in FL, the port for the ear buds to come out of is great so I can listen to music while I ride which also keeps the cord out of the way. I however noticed that from keeping my wallet in the pouch on my chest, it has a hard time of staying closed via velcro. The pockets by my waist are great for accessibility for grabbing my house keys etc. Love the backpack! Aug 31, 2014

Jacek M: I live outside US but I aways find the Revilla video presentations so helpful. I'm visiting US for business and I'm happy to finally make purchase from Revzilla. Keep doing the good work!

John mark R: first of all its on sale,and I know alpinestars is always a good product,and with this price it better be good. Jan 8, 2014
Daniel C: Needed a backpack that could hold a helmet without taking up internal space Dec 21, 2013
Holly S: My son put this on this Christmas list. Since he has a tendancy to pick the newest "it" thing, I always have to do plenty of research before buying. I first talked with people at the dealership and then went online. I could only find praise for this backpack. I was happy to see that it handles a helmet so no excuses not to take one (he has a ducati and there doesn't seem to be a way to store a helmet). I know he's not expecting it so I'm excited to give him something of quality that's useful. Dec 14, 2013
Yashar S: Heard good things about it. Was not disappointed. Dec 3, 2013
David V: Black Friday sale and also all the additional addons that make it a great product compared to other back packs. Dec 1, 2013
Jason T: great sale price on what i hear is the be all end all of riding backpacks. Anthony says it's his go to pack, and now it will be mine. thanks revzilla for helping me decide on what to buy for my first season of riding. much love!!!! Nov 30, 2013
Marc D: streamlined and seems like it can hold a good amount of stuff Nov 29, 2013

F O: im looking for a good sized bag with a helmet carrier...this one isnt so bulky and i can carry enough for a day's ride Nov 29, 2013
Chris B: Carrying my laptop plus more accessories. Awesome Nov 24, 2013
Michael H: Many reasons:
It's expandable, which is nice for when I'm not carrying a lot of stuff, I can't tone it down. It has quick releases for ease of getting on and off. Those of you who have worn packs without this know how important that is when wearing an armored jacket. Lots of pockets. Media pocket. Ballistic nylon. Astars brand, which has never failed me. Lumbar strap. Water resistant. Helmet attachment.

Anthony gave a good description of all the Astars packs. This seemed to suit my needs best.

Kenrick B asked: This might be a silly question but I can't imagine me using the waist straps all the time, but when I don't buckle them, even when in the securing clip, the straps seem like they hang a bit low and I am concerned about them getting caught in the wheel or chain.

What do you guys do about this?

Kenrick B: Just in case anyone was wondering, after a few months my fear finally realized. I forgot to buckle the straps and one of them got caught between my seat and exhaust and melted onto the pipes. My buckle is ruined and my pipe was a PITA to clean. Just a warning to anyone that has a high exhaust like on a sport bike: either cut the straps off or always make sure they are out of the way. Oct 7, 2014

Charles F H: Hi Kenrick B,

I've had the Aero pack for a couple of years and I rarely ride without the hip straps. It's too much of a distraction with the straps flailing around. And the bag moves too much on my back without them. But if you really don't want to use the hip straps, I would suggest tucking and zipping them up in the hip pouches that are on the bottom of the bag on each side.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Dual Sport helmets like the AFX FX-39 will not fit into the Alpinestars Tech Aero Helmet holder securely. The Tech Aero is designed to a hold street which does not have the large peak visor or the elongated chin bar which prevents it from fitting onto the secure bag correctly. Jul 17, 2012

Mike99: I am not familiar with the AFX FX-39, but the helmet holder fits my Nolan N103 with articulating chinbar, size XL, with no problem. The raincover does not really fit securely with the helmet in the holder. Aug 12, 2012

A S asked: Hello! Why is there a difference between the photo of the backpack and the video? I mean the zippers and the leather part at the bottom? thanks! Nov 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Cara Z: Hey the backpack is great. The zippers are weatherproofed so they aren't super easy to open and close, but that expected I guess. Also to be honest I never noticed leather on the bottom, not sure if maybe mine is a different year, but it does have an extremely reinforced bottom, I've stuffed it full and taken it on many road trips, and even more around town. The expansion is awesome extra space, that is super well hidden otherwise. The helmet holder is fantastic even if you have to go get groceries and throw a jug of milk in it. I've looked at a lot of other backpacks and this one is definitely the best for what I'm using if for, very worth the price! Good luck! Nov 25, 2014
Reply to Cara Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Arley S: Yes there is a difference I don't know why... However I can tell you that you'll recieve the one in the photos not the one in the video... The one in the photos has the leather bottom to prevent water leaks from going inside and the zippers have seals that go around them when you close them to also prevent any further water leaks. I definitely recommend this backpack it's great for all weather conditions and it has A really clean, sharp, and intimidating look. Nov 29, 2014
Reply to Arley Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael W: The bottom of the backpack appears to be leather in the video, but that is just the sheen of the material reflecting off the lights in the studio where the video is filmed. The part at the bottom you're talking about is not leather, its a composite type of material similar to that of a basketball or football. Nov 25, 2014

Cameron M: I wore it with an icon prime jacket at times but chose to instead strap it to the bike when travelling around 3000km as it was a bit of a pain to continueslly take put on/take off etc. I would look into panniers or a tank bag. Backpacks get in the way in my opinion. Aug 25, 2014

RevZilla: Your HTC phone will not fit in the Alpinestars Tech Aero shoulder strap pocket because it is too small.

We would recommend you to look at any Kriega backpack, and get the additional Kriega Kube Pocket, which should allow you to fit any type of phone.

A shopper asked: I just bought the Astars MX-1 jacket. The race hump on my jacket isnt huge but still, would this back pack be able to hang low enough to sit a little below the hump? Other generic backpacks with no chest straps work with my jacket because I can hang them pretty low, but I am really wanting to buy a real riding backpack and this one seems awesome if it would work. Jul 2, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: In general, jackets with a race hump make it difficultto use a backpack. This is especially true with motorcycle backpacks since they are designed to sit right behind the shoulder blades (thus providing a better feeling of balance while riding). Additionally, the race hump on the MX-1 is not overly large, however it is not terribly small either. Ultimately, we do not feel that you would be able to use this backpack comfortably with your current jacket. Jul 5, 2012

Brad W asked: I'm looking at this and the Kreiga R25. I've read that the quality of the AStars isn't up to the same level. But, I need the helmet protection when off the bike.

Talha S asked: Which AlpineStars back protectors work with this bag? Also, is back protector really needed on a backpack to provide back protection? Wouldn't backpack on its own provide sufficient protection? Dec 10, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Carlos M: A Revzilla Representative already answered this up above with "Alpinestars Bionic Race Back Protector, or Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector." As for it providing sufficient protection on its own I think not. Perhaps with nothing inside the bag at all it would help a small amount. But the back protectors are designed to absorb the energy of an impact to keep it from reaching your spine and the backpack itself is not so I wouldn't say it is an adequate way to protect your back without the proper back protector insert. Watch some of the Revzilla videos about the back protector products they're very informative. Dec 17, 2013

Norman R M: I don't have the other dainese or ogio but based on looks alone, I'd say they may be slightly more aerodynamic. Having said that, I really never noticed any issues with wind or aerodynamics with this backpack. It's still slick, even with a ton of stuff inside. Dec 2, 2013

A shopper asked: Which alpinestars back protectors can be used with this backpack? Mar 18, 2013

RevZilla: On the product page, Alpinestars states that the Alpinestars Bionic Back Protector is the intended option, however the shoulder straps and waist strap are not removable, making hits seem rather bulky. Alternative options would be the Alpinestars Bionic Race Back Protector, which only has a waist strap, or the Alpinestars Bionic Air Back Protector, which is an insert. Mar 19, 2013
