Firstgear Laguna Aero Pack
To Little Space
Although I have only used Firstgear Laguna Aero Pack to and from the office and only with my laptop it doesn't have much room. I bought it to use for commuting but also for longer overnight trips. I am going to Indianapolis for the MotoGP this weekend and was planning to use the pack for a change of clothes and shoes. I will only be able to get shoes, toothbrush and underwear in it plus SLR digital camera and small binoculars in the top of it. I am going to a route to Indy that will let me enjoy some twisties so I will know after this weekend how noticeable it is both at some higher speeds and in the curves. Because of its shape and size and light weight because of its size I think I will not notice it while riding

Rides Great, A Little Small
This backpack rides great. The aerodynamics make it very comfortable. I don't notice any drag when riding with this pack on. The storage is pretty good, though it is a little on the small side. It does fit a laptop pretty well, and will carry some basics. The lid has a very usable storage compartment as well. The integrated helmet net is a great feature and very convenient, as is the integrated rain cover. I find this is the perfect pack for running small errands or meeting up with friends. Works ok for commuting as well, though definitely on the minimalist side.

Excellent Pack for a simple carrying load
I think this bag is awesome! I use it mostly for carrying my work jacket and shoes and there's still a little room to spare. Even bought a pair of size 6 boy's shoes for my son and it fit no problem, the shoe box included. It's got plenty of pockets, two on either side of the waist strap and one of either shoulder straps that fits my phone perfectly.
A couple things you can't see in this picture the top dome part of the pack is another compartment, just big enough for misc. stuffs. I was thinking it could hold an extra face-sheild of my Bell Star helmet, but no dice. Also on the very bottom there's two zippers, one holds a cargo net to hold your helmet which straps to the D clips and the other is for a rain cover. Each is held in two separate pouches at the bottom of the main compartment.(So don't try and pull them out like I almost did). Inside there's a separation for a laptop, a clip for keys or things that need to be clipped, a couple pen holders, another pocket and two mesh nets.
As for the feel; it's great! I haven't worn it without a jacket, but there's mesh padding that goes against your back. With my jacket on, I hardly notice it's there. It's shape doesn't cause any (noticeable) drag from what I've felt thus far at +60mph and it's doesn't interfere when I check my blind spots. I noticed that my helmet hits the top part of the pack when I look up, but I honestly don't find myself looking at the sky all that often; I did it just to test the range of motion.
Overall, if you're looking for something that can carry a simple load with no problem this might be the pack for you. Sorry for this being long winded.
