Best investment
I am a new rider and safety was my highest priority when searching for gear. Without a doubt, this bag is one of the best investments I've made.

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.

Sturdy, good sized, feature-laden pack
I bought this pack to replace a torn and no longer waterproof Kelty hiker I've had for years. The Kelty was a bit larger in overall volume, and had a better pen organizer pocket, but that's all that was (knowingly) sacrificed. This pack feels bombproof, and along with that it is heavy! I wouldn't hike with it, but my bike doesn't care about the weight, and the shoulder/chest strap system is wonderful at comfortably distributing even the fullest of loads. There are a good amount of pockets and storage, and lots of attachment points.

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.

Amazing backpack
I purchased the Hi-Viz version of the backpack to make sure people can see me at night. It fits almost everything I need (I am a law student and the books are huge) but for the average person this bag is perfect for everyday rides, etc. I highly recommend this bag.

Better than I could have hoped for.
I got the high-vis version to replace my vest as a military rider when I need to carry things with me. This bag is BIG. Will easily hold my clothes and toiletries for a weekend trip. The grey portion you see in the picture is reflective material but I haven't ridden enough to see if that will hold up over time. The straps are comfortable and can be adjusted to fit. I'm very excited about this bag and the many trips that I have taken and will take it on.

American Kargo got it right!
In my search for a daily commuter/every day backpack I ran into this gem! I originally had my eyes on an icon military spec II but I heard horror stories about the stitching and build quality. I am an ironworker so I tend to be hard on my backpacks.

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.

Premium, functional and visually appealing
I ordered this bag after a collision involving me and a car; I became obsessed with visibility and led me to purchase this. I dont usually pay this much for bags but I made an exception for the premium quality, functionality, style and justified it after the crash for the reflectivity! This bag has enormous reflective areas all over whereas most bags have some small piping- or if you're lucky, a logo. the harness is not entirely straightforward but works well and makes the heaviest loads feel light. This product makes me feel seen as well as draws positive comments on its style from those in my social circles. It is water resistant; I dont ride in heavy rain EVER but I suspect it would hold up pretty well unless you're riding in the ocean ;) Great functionality, amazing build quality and one thing that surprised me is its a bit smaller than I was expecting; I was happy about that as I didnt want a massive backpack but its a bit more compact than I first thought. Can still fit a fair amount in it, though. I use it for the trek in to and from work all the time and would recommend this pack to anyone who the features and style appeal to; amazing product.

Last backpack you'll ever buy
This bag is tough thick skinned and great. I spilled on the first day it cleans up easily. the laptop holder is great and there is so many features that you don't expect but then you open the bag and wonder why other bags don't have it. worth every penny

Fits like a glove
The fit on this thing is great. Everything is really easy to adjust and totally "set it and forget it." Doesn't shift a bit when riding and still allows airflow on hotter days. Build quality seems great, without loose strings hanging off or irregular stitching. Large capacity with external clips to allow for wrapping up your jacket and cinching it down to the back. All panels are PVC-lined, so it should handle rain well, but an extra rain cover is available from the manufacturer's site.

Best backpack in the market
If you are looking for a Hi-viz backpack and you are in need for a lot of space for your clothes and a computer, this is the bag. Im a daily commuter and i pack my daily change of clothes here. And that's including my boots sometimes ( im in the military). You can easily pack for a weekend. Thebag even has a pocket for a weapon. Highly recommended.

awesome back pack
This back pack is awesome!!!! I recently was riding with the icon squad 3.0 bag and although it was great, it was just to small for a daily commuter like myself. I needed a ton of storage space to be able to put gym clothes, packed lunch, my laptop to take anywhere with me and have plenty of other space left for what ever else . This bag was just what i needed. Check out my full you tube review if any one is interested to see what it looks like on with a riding jacket and helmet at Beansy Moto Reviews!!!!
