Reviews & Questions
This bag has proven to be the perfect all-day commuter bag. I prefer the backpack vs tank bag to free-up my hands. The things I was looking for in a bag were safety, storage, and all around functionality. I'm more of a function over fashion rider.
I am 5'5" and 125lbs woman so wasn't sure how big this bag would be. I don't even notice the weight. The bag sits on my shoulders and straps to my chest perfectly. I only notice the weight when I have to take it off. It feel very sturdy when I'm riding.
The other bonus for me is that it is very very bright. I have the Hi-Viz. I want to thank American Kargo for making the reflective area a large surface area. It is really eye-catching when I ride at night in Los Angeles city freeways.
Storage wise, it has ample room. I could actually use more room but that's just my tendency to carry everything. This bag fits my chromebook, cables, paperwork, leather jacket, jeans, toiletries, and shoes. I also use the water bladders. The hooks and additions to the chest portion of the backpack work great to keep the drinking spout in-place.
If you're on the fence, get off and get it. You won't regret it.
D-A-M-N HI-VIZ that's bright! Thing practically glows in even the dimmest of light (however it doesn't actually glow). Tons of reflective parts too. I bought this to commute with and add visibility in the early morning or evening hours when drivers are sleepy or tired and over-stressed and it sure does the trick.
I also use it for beer runs, holds 2 six packs, 2 bottles of wine, and 2 champagne with room for a little bit more! It has "good" interior volume, but is not 30-rack huge in the main area due to Y zipper configuration. It would probably hold 30 loose cans, if that's your style. The laptop area is super well padded and well sealed from the elements and fits a Mac Pro 15" in a neoprene sleeve without issue. 17" laptops might be tight, but you knew that would be an issue when you bought a surfboard for a laptop.
The 4 zipped pocket spaces offer good storage for all my odds and ends, glasses, medicine/first aid items, and lots of IT gadgets & cables. I don't use the visor pocket as I wear RX sun & day glasses but keep them, my phone, wallet and other fragile valuables in there instead.
The tool "wing" storage areas are useful and will fit a variety of long or taller tools, but super stubby things need to go in zip pockets. The "wing" storage is between the side zip pockets and the main area and is great, but if it rains (and you don't buy the optional cover) that area is potentially going to get wet. I bought the cover, which fits just fine in a "wing" mesh pocket and IS waterproof (so far) but doesn't feel as robust/thick as it looks in pictures.
The only 2 issues I have are:
1) The helmet strap pocket on the bottom tends to start to zip open if rubbed against my seat-cowl sometimes. It's never gotten more than an inch open, but I figure I should note it, and I'll probably remedy this by fastening the zipper somehow.
2) The interior water bladder holder is full width of the bag, so it might slide around.
Neither of these are show-stoppers and I recommend it to all.
Note: I use a carabiner to close the top two zippers in the Y configuration to ensure security, but the design is such that at speed the wind pushes the top closed for you anyway.

Needless to say this pack can take IT! The fitment on my shoulders was spot on. It has a very natural, secure feeling to the harness system, with no belly obstruction so you can still tuck down on your tank. The double stitching is done properly! This backpack in every essence is quality!
Yeah I know 180 seems to be on the high side but it will be the last backpack you 'have' to buy. As for the style what can I say, it's beautiful and an absolute bonus if you ask me!
Bottom line if you're thinking about it, DO IT! You will not be disappointed.
Cons: Hydration pack/ packs sold separately.
