Icon Squad 2 Mil Spec Backpack
A good backpack with good qualities
Not much to say! A beautiful, functional, comfortable.

Great storage and visibility
I have the Orange color. As a new rider it is great - the cars tend to stay a nice distance behind.
It allows me to carry everything I need.
The fit is snug, but does not hinder mobility.
I'm 5'8" and the helmet section hangs a little low.

Seams are coming apart all over
After 2 years of use, the seams are splitting apart all over the backpack. For this price, a backpack should last for more than two years. The only thing that is in good shape are the arm bands because I removed them and hid them in the closet the day that I bought the backpack.

Great back pack on and off the bike. has all sorts of nooks and crannies to put your goodies in. I utilize it for long trips from San Diego to Los Angeles, theme parks and when I am just out with the family and kids as a baby bag =P The reflective material does fade and rip over time, but the pack is very durable and fits snug when your riding with little or no shifting around at all. Overall a great back pack for the $.

Awesome product... But
This backpack is great, I love everything about it except that it doesn't get small enough to fit me right. The straps that tighten up to fit the backpack securely on your back aren't made for smaller or skinnier people like myself. It still fits... But it sits really low on my back.

Does the job, not sure how long it'll last
Like the other reviews, the quality isn't the best but it does do what it says. You can store your laptop which was my biggest selling point, and it has ample pockets. I use it mostly for commuting and so far it's working well. I like the arm bands because it makes the bag feel even more snug on my bag. Again, the quality is questionable, as it just doesn't have the feel like it would last a super long time but hopefully it proves me wrong. I'd be happy if I could get 5 years out of it.

Cool bag but some issues
Pack is of high quality and addresses the issue of losing some of your high visibility with backpack on. I was impressed with the laptop section of the bag. Your laptop or tablet will protected, for sure. Will not accommodate a huge, gamer-type laptop though. Pack is not waterproof and is ungainly with all your gear attached to it as Icon suggests. I'm 6'1" and the helmet bag portion drags if I carry by the top "drag handle". You need to where it on your back if you want to carry your riding gear, which is a non-starter if you are wearing a uniform (in my service). Maybe they should have put the helmet storage at the top of the back?? ID pockets hold on to the ID too well, using a silicone-like sleeve. Very difficult to slide it in or out. A major PITA if the gate guard wants to hold your ID in his/her hand during the morning rush. Lots of pockets but not a huge main compartment. Overall, I would rather buy this than a vest because of the added functionality of being able to carry stuff.

Very nice pack.
This is a very nice pack. It has plenty of storage. It is everything it says it is and more.
