Reviews & Questions
First of all I listed Bang for the Buck as fair. Why? For all practical purposes this is a limited use backpack. What do I mean by that? When I purchased this backpack, I was thinking "Well, I'm a student & I ride my motorcycle to school so I can use it to haul my books, laptop and other such things." Wrong, but let me get back to that in a moment & talk about what's good about the bag.
First the exterior. The bag looks sharp. The outer shell has a sort of carbon fiber look and I've had people come up to me & say how cool the bag looks & want to feel the shell. The back of the bag that touches your back is nice & padded as are the shoulder straps. There's that nice off center waist strap that won't mess up your bike tank, the chest level strap that is adjustable & a helmet holder belt that you can use to keep your helmet attached to your backpack when you're walking. At the top of the back there's a zipper pocket that could hold a large smartphone or other such device. There's also reflective stripping on the left & right side so you'll be seen at night.
The interior of the bag has various pockets for pens, a phone, a laptop, a tablet size device and other such things. There isn't an elaborate setup, but it's sufficient. The space is decent with special shoe slots that work well. There's also a compartment to hold an extra helmet face-shield which I've tried out & it works. There's a zipper that goes around the length of the bag to expand the capacity of the backpack which is very nice. The interior of the bag has a decent setup with an acceptable amount of space.
Now the not so good stuff. If you're the kind of rider that's only going to need to haul clothes or extra shoes this bag has you covered. If you're like me & also want to haul around books...It better be comics or paperback. The exterior of the bag is single stitched and at the top front of the bag(what people would see if you were wearing the bag) there's a slit of sorts. It's a leather or suede slit you can slide your hand into to pick up the bag. Due to the single stitching it tears easily as my bag did. What it revealed was a piece of hard plastic underneath the leather or suede material. That single stitch equals poor quality & a short life span. It only took two of my daughters school books, her shoes & her lunch to cause my bag to rip when I picked it up. My daughter is nine so I'm not talking encyclopedia britannica here either. The bag is not designed to carry anything more than a light load. Also the bag is sexy, there's no denying that, but because it's good looking you almost have to treat it like a piece of art. You won't want to scratch this thing, get it scuffed or let anyone man handle it. The bag won't stand on it's own so you're going to have to either hold this thing or set it on the ground/floor when you're not wearing it. That means it'll get dirty easy or something might fall on it or scratch it. Yes, there is a waist strap, but if you have a gut, the strap isn't going to fit around your waist. I have a 32" waist with a slim stomach & with my leather jacket on it was a snug fit. Do your dieting before you strap this bad boy on.
While the interior will fit a decent amount of clothes don't expect to fit much else. Due to the unusual shape of the backpack, it's difficult to fit books. Even with the expansion zipper feature there's not a lot of room to work with. I was able to fit my 15" Asus Zenbook, an external dvd writer, an assortment of pens, my smart phone, my camera, various cords, my external hard drive & jump drive, but after that only 2 decent sized books. So it's not very practical for a student. Oh yes & that helmet shield holder. Good in theory but not in practice. If you want to put books in your bag you can't use the helmet shield feature. With all the things I just listed inside the bag the face shield wouldn't fit properly in the bag. I couldn't close the bag until I either bent the face shield( which would have broken it) or removed the shield. I chose the ladder. And the belt thingy that can be used to hold your helmet on the exterior of the bag? Well, it does what is says, but when you start walking you get this sort of swinging helmet motion which just isn't good so another nice idea but it needs some work.
In all fairness to the mfg, when I called OGIO to complain about the rip that happened 10 days after I had the bag they were extremely helpful, understanding & allowed me to send the bag back for a replacement bag free of charge. They paid to have it shipped back & are sending the replacement bag free of charge as well. So OGIO clearly stands behind their products. Even though this review on the Mach 5 is harsh I'm still going to continue to buy OGIO products. I'm just going to make sure I physically inspect the product before I drop the cash next time.
So in conclusion for $160 + I'm recommending the bag only to people that will use it to hold clothes, their laptop & other light things. For a student I'm saying it's not worth it.
Hey though...it's sexy.
Recently I’ve tried (and failed) to move away from riding with a backpack altogether but after looking at my options (tail/tank bags… etc) I have begrudgingly accepted that a backpack is in fact, the best option I have for my daily commute. I do have a set of really sweet and spacious Givi V35 hard bags that can be mounted on my bike, but most days I don’t carry enough items to require lugging around the two hard bags. Also, I definitely prefer the handling characteristics of my bike without them. For overnight or longer road trips, I would use them for sure, but for my daily commute I wanted another solution to carry my most essential supplies.
Back to the backpack options…
I used to carry around a tactical style 5-11 3-day MOLLE backpack which would fit all my daily supplies easily but it started getting worn and ragged from riding with it all the time. Not to mention I would have sore shoulders every day from the wind trying to rip the bag off my back at highway speeds (most of my commute). Mostly for this reason, I decided that my next backpack would be a purpose built motorcycle backpack instead of a more ‘hiking’ oriented one. After spending a couple of weeks doing research, reading reviews, and looking at different brands and styles, I decided to go with the Ogio ‘No Drag’ series and then I decided to get the top-of-the-line Mach 5 version.
It has an excellent assortment of internal pockets and trick features like the separate padded laptop/tablet pockets, shoe holders and built-in visor pocket… Basically, It fits everything I need for my daily commute with ease (keys, lunch, wallet, laptop, i-pod, various chargers/cables, extra clear helmet visor, phone, go-pro/accessories, pens, notepad, rain gear (pants and jacket), first aid kit, pliers, screwdriver, hex/allen keys, and tire pressure gauge – whew! I think that’s everything). If the standard size isn’t enough, there is an expansion zipper on the Mach 5 that allows you to cram more things in if needed.
It has an additional helmet leash to 'hands-free-carry' your helmet on the right side of your body.
Good weight distribution when fully loaded and riding. No heavy spots.
Almost NO felt wind resistance #and subsequently less shoulder pain than a typical backpack causes# at prolonged highway speeds.
No movement/shifting in crosswinds. This is a huge problem with a typical backpack. I always see other riders with their backpacks falling over to one side!
Specially designed back padding creates a cooling channel of wind right down the center of your back #even when carrying a full camelback water bladder#.
The Mach 5 comes with an extra waist strap with a small pouch for items like wallet, keys, or other small items you may need quick access to.
Last but not least… Cool looking design.
The external surfaces of the bag are so delicate that any nick or scratch is immediately visible and depending on your OCD level, this might drive you crazy. You’ll have to get used to not throwing your backpack around or laying it on its back.
The main compartment opens up from the underside of the bag, which requires you to lay it down on its back each time you go into it, see the above comment for why this is frustrating. #I open it by sitting it upright on my work chair so that the back rests against the cushion of the chair#
When in the fully tucked riding position the back of your helmet makes contact with the top of the bag.
If you have to ride to work on a daily basis and are looking for a backpack you should definitely consider this option. It’s not cheap, but it’s surely one of the more comfortable options for riders and may be worth the money to you depending on how much actual time you spend riding at highway speeds. That said, there are three different trim versions. Taking all that into consideration, any version of this bag would be better for highway riding than your typical soft-bags or hiking backpacks simply due to the hard-shell design that reduces wind resistance, and fatigue over time… For me the bottom line is this... If I'm going to spend 2-3 hours per day going 70 mph on my motorcycle I want to make sure I do it comfortably with as few distractions as possible so I can stay 100% focused on the road. Wait! I think I just justified the purchase of this bag as “safety equipment”
Unfortunately, it just does not perform well, in my opinion. It fails in execution and functionality. First, the molded shape of the pack does not allow you to fit as much as is advertised. The picture provided is tremendously misleading. Once I had my laptop in, it was a pain getting anything else to fit. Clothes are fine, but I was planning on using it for school. Fitting my things, plus the laptop did not work.
Another failed aspect is the helmet visor padded protective compartment. I was excited to be able to wear my dark smoke face shield during the day and carrying my clear one in the pack for night riding. However, the holder does not hold the face shield very well AND with that in, plus my laptop, I could not close the backpack, even with opening the expansion portion.
The pack honestly caused more frustration and pain than any other backpack. I tried really hard to convince myself that it was a great buy, but I had to return it. I think I'm just going to get the Alpinestars Charger Backpack.
Unfortunately, I do not recommend this backpack.
*The aerodynamic design is helpful in reducing drag.
*The visor / shield pocket is really cool.
*The extra crud is comes with... straps... pocket pack... clearly there to increase the price and impact the perceived value - but a complete waste, as they erode the item's core aero feature.
*Baffling: only has a quick release on one of the two straps. When you're in skin tight leather with a helmet limiting your downward view, and gloves limiting your feel - why in the world would you only include a quick release on the right side? It makes getting in and out of the thing a frustrating waste of time. It's consistently annoying.
*The front strap is going to be too small for larger riders. I'm not a particularly large person and it's at full spread.
Someone will come along and do this right - this is not it. The stitching is single thread and poor - no way it holds up to even a modest crash. No way is it protecting your $2k laptop when you do crash. Really, this backpack is a pretender. Right now, it's the only game in town with these aero properties. Overall, especially at this price point, it's a disappointment. It's being sold as a motorcycle backpack - yet doesn't really take a rider's needs into perspective.
Durability; it's great. I've rode with it for a few months now and it is still like new. Haven't had any straps fray or rip at the stitching. No buckles have broken either. My last bag was from ICON and it busted at the seams even when it wasn't overpacked.
Comfort; this thing is very comfortable. Unlike most bags that move around or feel like they unzip while you ride, this one stays in place. It stays in place even without the sternum and waist straps attached. True to its name, it's low drag. No more bag hopping around your back while you do the "speed limit". If you like to feel extra secure, you can use the additional straps on the waist and sternum, but as I said before you really don't need them. The shape of the bag allows it to form to your back turning you into an aerodynamic turtle of sorts.
Ease of use; This bag is like a Swiss Army Knife. Okay, not really, but almost. There's a pocket for everything. Tools, gadgets, G.I. Joes, TPS reports, whatever, there's a spot for it. There's a spot for a hydration pack for those long hauls through the Mojave. There's a pocket that can fit a 15" laptop also, but… I don't really know anyone who rides around w/ a laptop especially since we all have smartphones these days. But it's there. There's enough room to fit a change of clothes and possibly a hoodie too. There are dedicated straps to keep your shoes in place also. A mesh net clips into the top of the bag to keep your clothes etc snug against the shell of the bag. The extra 2lt of storage is handy also. Lets you cram as much junk as you want in there without worrying about it busting the second you attempt to zip it up.
As you can see, the shell is one solid piece while the zipper is in the back of the bag against the riders back. You don't have to twist-tie your bag zippers anymore or worry about them unzipping themselves. Great for keeping your mind focused on your ride instead of wondering if your Game Genie fell out of your bag on your way to Grandma's house. There is also one zipper pouch separate from the main compartment that is felt lined. It isn't that big thought. It'll fit a cell phone and a wallet though. Great place to stash your wallet instead if inside the bag so you're not undoing everything at the gas station when you're filling up.
This bag also makes for a great makeshift weapon. The hard shell can really catch someone by surprise. I only know this because some buffoon pulled out the Micro Machine version of Rambo's knife on me and demanded money so I brought the wrath of the Titans down on his skull with my Mach 5. Guess he wasn't expecting a bag to knock him on his bum. So yeah, great weapon. (I, no does Revzilla or Ogio recommend or condone using this bag as a weapon.) Had to toss that in there for legality purposes.
Bottom line; buy it. You won't regret it. Sleek, stylish and functional.
Dress for the slide, not for the ride!
When you put it on, it's best to put on the right strap, then buckle the waist, then put the left shoulder strap on last. The waist buckle is on the right side and is almost impossible to put on once you've got the pack on both shoulders.

And my favorite part is that you don't end looking like a Ninja Turtle, because the shell is very streamlined, does that make sense?, I would recommend this bag to people that don't even own a bike, it is THAT GOOD!.
Aside from carrying my gear when I'm ON THE BIKE, I use it to store my electronics around the house, my two little boys have a hard time opening my ninja turtle shell, so they give up trying to get their dirty little hands on my expensive gear, BUAAHAHAHA!, I WIN!
I love the design. Although it doesn't have all of the small pockets and stashes that the Icon has, it is extremely lighter, better looking, and hold as much if not more.
