Product Details

American Kargo Trooper Back Pack

The American Kargo Trooper was designed for, well, anything and everything you can imagine. It's big. It's tough. It's perfect. Of course, it includes interior and exterior pockets, tie-downs, the expected fittings and adjustments, a special laptop / tablet pocket, and is hydration compatible. Not to mention a place for first aid, a place for goggles, and the ability to secure your helmet to the back. You're going to quit before the Trooper even gets close.

The butterfly harness is the quintessential element in American Kargo’s approach to comfort and stability in our rider-centric product line. Incorporating multiple fit and fitting adjustments and increased surface area, the straps are designed to work around your equipment and the way you move. Your chest, arms, shoulders and core were carefully considered. The butterfly harness creates the functionality you need for the riding experience you want.

Patrick A on Jul 6, 2017
Lots of space, comfortable and highly visible.
Paul D on Jun 3, 2017
a great product but i would say it is more of a small travel bag if you intend to use it for school or work you may find it has a lack of room in the main compartment.
ian p on Apr 17, 2017
Quality and hi-viz. They thought of everything and I love the separate laptop compartment. Only con is it doesn't fit quite as much as I thought it would but still has a decent amount of space.
Charles d on Jan 6, 2017
need a large, supportive bag for on the bike
I M on Sep 15, 2016
This is a very functional bag but it's tall. For my daily use I bought the AK Commuter Pack. Much more functional for my needs but this one would be good to pack on bigger trips.
Toby H on Jun 21, 2016
A friend owns this backpack and loves it.
YetiOnAHonda on Jun 17, 2016
Lots of room and lots of pockets. Also the reflective panels were a major plus without sacrificing looks
Robert C on Mar 16, 2016
Tim C on Mar 13, 2016
Great backpack with lots of storage room and great retro reflectors. I bought the Hi viz. so cagers can see me easier.
Victoria N on Jan 10, 2016
needed a good big backpack
Victor F on Oct 25, 2015
This was the largest backpack I could find in its class. I can tell you it can swallow a whole bag of groceries no problem. Construction seems high quality, the materials used feel thick, and LOTS of retro! Only gripe I have is the padding on the shoulder straps is a bit light. It hasn't been uncomfortable so far, but I have't worn it with less than 3 layers on....
Mcgrizzein on Oct 25, 2015
High capacity backpack with "AK" on it, which is the abbreviation for my state. Also it's HI-VIS which is comforting.
also-- the option to clip a helmet to the back will come in very handy for me
W I on Sep 11, 2015
Ratings from other members, size, chest buckle/strap design
Omikron on Aug 5, 2015
Increase stowage capacity on trips.
Phil G on Jul 15, 2015
after i research every backpack this one was the only one offering everything i was looking for it. Size, Hi-Viz< a lot of pockets and water resistant.
george R on May 13, 2015
Great capacity and build quality. Hi-viz for using on base.
Joshua A on Apr 20, 2015
Nice big back pack. High viz yellow is a nice perk. Water packs very cool.
Collegeboy on Mar 20, 2015
Needed something that could haul a decent amount of gear through the weather. Reviews looked great.
Brandon W on Mar 6, 2015
The AK Trooper is big and tough. And it's Hi Viz!
Curtis S on Mar 5, 2015
I purchased this backpack mainly because of the retroflect and functionality. I realized that my bike and gear are all black and I need to be a bit more visible when I ride at night.
Anthony G on Jan 22, 2015
For commuting, and getting an actual riding backpack. Makes a big difference, i barely notice it. i was using a rush 24 which is an awesome backpack but hurt my back when riding for a long time.
Indomie on Nov 22, 2014
I needed a solid commuter backpack that would get me to the airport and then hold my helmet through security etc. It is the best backpack I've owned.
JSY04 on Oct 6, 2014
I have searched for months and months for the perfect pack and finally found it. Sure it is a bit pricey but THIS is the perfect pack for me. I chose this particular pack because of many different features; water resistance, large inner area, the "Y" opening, the 2 different pockets for hydration, the helmet netting, large zipper pulls, etc.. But, most of all, I chose this because of the sternum support and the quick/easy buckles on the front. Quick on, quick off, and lots of adjustability.

What is the internal capacity of the trooper in litres?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 22" H x 14" W x 10" D = 3080 cubic inches = 50.47 liters
Has anyone bought or used this pack for an offroad application? I am looking for a larger hydration pack for dirt bike riding. yes I like to carry a lot of stuff. I am trail rider not a moto cross rider.
A shopper on Feb 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't ride off road however on long trips this easily holds a 2 liter hydration pack on the inside pocket and plenty of other equipment.
I plan to use for offroad and I wear a Leatt neck brace. Will this pack integrate with an Alpinestrs neck brace or a Leatt neck Brace?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I wear this pack with the Leatt 5.5 GPX brace and there's no issues at all. I even use two different jackets- a Fly Racing four season jacket and the now discontinued Leatt GPX Adventure Jacket. The Leatt jacket allows the brace to be worn *under* the jacket. The backpack works fine with either.
Does this product have any manufacturer warranty?
Nicholas R on Jun 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I just checked, They have a limited lifetime warranty.
how is the size compared to the kreiga r35?
Kevin H on Jul 27, 2018
Would you recommend this backpack for a long (300+ mile) journey? Any fatigue after wearing this for a couple hours on the freeway?
Dylan H on Oct 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have worn this pack for the better part of 11 hours and besides the normal fatigue of riding that long I did not notice anything extra while wearing this pack. Hope this helps.
Is this waterproof?
Evan G on Sep 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It has help up pretty well rain on its own (all kinds), but I've never done more than 6-10 miles or 30 min in such conditions. I also have the extra cover but that gets soaked through quickly and I'm not sold on it's usefulness except in light to medium drizzle. Anyway, my gear has stayed dry in all events and the laptop sleeve area is definitely been dry.
How well does this fit? 250lbs 6'1 46-48 chest
A shopper on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This backpack fits very well. I'm 5.10 230 44 chest. Nearly every strap is adjustable and the whole thing is very comfortable. The one thing I didn't really like about it is it seems to ride a lot lower on my back than I would like even with the shoulder harness adjusted all the way up. I would work well if I was hunched over on a sport bike but I'm on a FZ-07 and sit fairly straight up. There is a TON of storage in this thing if you need it.
I'm a new rider and dont have a bag yet for commuting. I was wondering if this bag can store laptop (13 inch macbook pro), blazer (i dont care if it gets wrinkled) and a pair of mens
dress shoes which are size 10.5 - 11?
Gregory A on Mar 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hey Gregory,
The items you list would fit easy and then some. The main compartment is plenty big and plenty of room for a 13" in the laptop portion. Love this bag!
Do you ride with it with a second helmet in the net?
Simon Y on Nov 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I personally do not, however I suspect it's possible. A helmet in the net is pretty secure, I'd just be worried that using it like that consistently on a bumpy bike may weaken the netting over time. Also, as another thought the helmet sticks out pretty far when attached to the pack and kind of throws you off balance. I probably wouldn't be comfortable riding with one attached.
