Velomacchi Roll-Top Backpack 40L

With a tapered, bottom-heavy form factor, the 40L Roll-Top Backpack forces a weight distribution towards your hips for less fatigue on long rides. Embellishing further upon this anthropometric theme, the unique, self-articulating chest harness structure places the load of the pack across your torso instead of localizing it upon your shoulders. These two approaches virtually make the pack disappear as you're barreling down the road in either a tuck or upright riding position.   

Features:

  • Water-tight main compartment with magnetic roll top closure
  • Patent pending 3-point rotating harness system
  • Magnetic sternum coupler for hands free harness closure
  • 1000D competition fabric: water proof, abrasion resistant and stable at high speed
  • Ballistic quilted backpanel with tuck away shoulderstraps
  • Water-tight large front pocket with storage for edc tools, bike lock, keys, etc
  • Emergency contact information and key pocket
  • Hydration sleeve compatible (bladder not included)
  • Quick access tool / med pouch side pocket
  • Torso size adjustment cam lock system
  • Leather gripping side stabilizing pads
  • Motorcycle tie down anchor points
  • Able to lash down to the tail of a bike using a Velomacchi Accessory Tie Down Strap Set (sold separately)

Most comfortable bag ever
I’m going to get the bad out of the way first: This is an expensive backpack. “What am I doing with my life?”-levels of buyer’s remorse when you press the checkout button. All of that goes away after you receive this backpack.
Yes, I can wear this without gear without looking like a dork.
The way Velommacchi designed the openings and strap gives the impression of a compact shell. It looks like a much smaller backpack than it is. Which is great, because I don’t want to look like I’m hiking every time I wear this. The main compartment from the magnetic rolled top is very large. Which is to be expected. What surprised me was the front pocket. There are two, one smaller pocket held together by elastic pull strings, and a larger one with a zipper. The zippered front pocket is huge. It runs the height of the backpack. It’s as spacious as a smaller bag’s main compartment. Most of my things fit in that front pocket, and I use the main one for large items. The bag is very stiff, combined with the straps means that when you have a big load, it conforms to a compact shape.
Its too soon to speak on the durability of the bag or its components. All material is hefty and high quality. The elastic pull strings are not glued on, and actually tied through the strong fabric. It is not one hand use. I use two hands and it’s fast and smooth.
However, the thin “vinyl/leather” fabric that holds the hook to keep the roll top in place is the only thing I’m worried about. After only a week of use, the fabric has already broken in along the edges of the opening where the hooks attach. This makes it easier to get the hooks in, but what will this look like after months or years? Will it get too loose?
The main attraction for this bag is that magnetic sternum strap. It’s feels more high quality and simple to use than the Kreiga. Opening it is just as easy. But boy do I love putting it on. Put them close together and they snap on, its very cool.
This is the easiest backpack to put on. No weird stretching motions to get my arms to fit in, no securing the straps once it’s on. It’s set it and forget it.
I also like the GoPro pad, and the metal loops on the straps. I hang my key chain with my garage opener on it, so as I arrive near my garage I just reach up to my strap and push the button. I also like the little pocket on the strap. It’s meant for medical and ID, but I use it for my ID and credit card. Love this feature. Will never get another bag without this strap pocket. But then again, I probably won’t buy another backpack ever again.
Most importantly: This is by far the most comfortable backpack I have ever worn. Other backpacks, you can feel the weight as when you pack it full. With this backpack, I filled it to the top, and I swear I couldn’t feel the difference from when it was empty. That’s how comfortable this backpack is. It distributes that weight so well.
And of course, since this is an apparel, I’d be remiss if I didnt bring up comments I’ve received about the bag. Everyone from work made comments about it on the first day. They thought it was a classy, understated looking bag (with the exception of the power ranger magnetic sternum connector). And when they put it on, there were some people who had this “if only this wasn’t $300 dollars, I’d buy it right now”. It’s a GREAT looking bag. But my goodness, it’s an even more comfortable bag.
It’s expensive as hell. But considering my wife wants a luxury boutique bag that doesn’t have 1/4 of the function of this bag, for 2x the price, I think, relatively, it’s well worth it.

Amazing back pack
I used to use an Ogio backpack, which lasted for less than a year, before the sternum strap broke. I've started commuting every day on my bike and wanted the replacement to be water proof.

Of course, Kriega R30 is where I was headed, but I cam across Velomacchi and read reviews of the 28L back pack. I knew 28l would be smaller than I need, but loved the look.

I saw on their site they had a 40L available, but there were no reviews of it online. Luckily, they had a 30% off Christmas sale and I pulled the trigger.

My thoughts on the pack now that I've ridden with it:
Beautiful, insanely comfortable, well built, and the harness system is phenomenal.

It hasn't rained, but there is no doubt that the main compartment is 100% water proof. The zippered compartments appear the same with waterproof liners and nice YKK waterproof zippers.

I would have thought the compartment with the toggle enclosure would have more of a lip on the pocket to prevent water intrusion, but I can't say that it isn't waterproof either.

My only wishes were for an internal laptop sleeve (I ordered Velomacchi's largest Impact sleeve, but my mobile workstation is beyond the sleeve's thickness capability. I'd also like for a few zippered compartments in the fold down pocket. The elastic separators are just a bit too small to really be of use for me and make things difficult to get out.

So far, I love the bag. I'll post another review after a few months.

Great Bag
Initially I was hesitant given the purchase price, but after pulling the trigger, I am glad I did. I commute as much as I can on my Monster, and have a few bags I have run through. The ogio no drag was a nice bag, but the design was impractical. My 5.11 all hazards prim bag is awesome, but never felt 100% right when riding. The Velomachhi on the other hand is amazing on the bike.

The craftsmanship is without flaw, every stitch is done well and it feels super durable. Material is stiff, but still flexible enough to accommodate items. Internal dividers in the front pocket are well laid out, I am not a huge fan of the closures for that front pocket, they look cool but are not the best option in my opinion. The main compartment is large with smaller zipper compartments on the front and side. The front zipper compartment easily fits my 13 inch laptop (macbook air for size reference).

Typically speaking I keep gym stuff (shoes, towel, toiletries bag, shirt/shorts), my laptop, pad folio, pens pencils etc, water bottle, and some general bike tools in the bag and it all fits with room to spare.

My only gripe is I would love to see them include standard straps along with the harness it comes with, they could be swapped out based on personal preference. I would like to use them on my mon-fri commute so I don't look like a spaceman with a jet pack if I head out to a site or visit a client.

Great bag, I would absolutely recommend this bag to anyone who goes for a distance ride on the weekend, does adv riding or needs a bag for the m-fri commute and does not want to add saddle bags to their bike.

Perfect bag for moto riders
For those who want to carry a lot of stuffs when riding and look good at the same time, well this is the bag for you. I love the round lock in the sternum which make it standout and makes the bag feel light and no shoulder pain or back pain for me which made me hesitate at first to get a backpack for riding.

I did a 500 km. ride with this bag a month ago and it felt like I am not carrying anything on my back. Arm movement when manuevering my Sportster wasn't a problem also.

If you're undecided whether to get the 28L or this 40L....get this one. It isn't too bulky when you'll carry few items only but will expand when the need arises.

The only downside for me is the backside of the backpack. There is less airflow there and it can get quite hot especially for people living in tropical countries like me. But it's not a deal breaker for me.

Overall, the design, the functionality and comfort-wise, I will say they did a good job on this one and highly recommend this for everyone.

Almost the perfect bag
If my girlfriend can spend 1k on a Gucci bag that holds like 10oz then I can spend $299 on a bag that holds 40 liters, right? Also, the bag is a bit darker grey than I was expecting. Not bad, just not what I was expecting.

As the title says, this is almost the perfect bag, but here is my pro/con list.

PROS:
- It's comfortable, but not anymore comfortable than a regular backpack, and it's a bit tighter around the neck than a regular backpack, but it's still plenty comfy.

-It's very well made. Feels like it would withstand just about anything

-Lots of pockets. Lots of space.

-No straps flapping around.

-That locking system is no joke. It definitely feels secure it's not going anywhere.

CONS:

-Aesthetically it looks a little funny if you don't have it filled a bit. Weird point, I know, but it's VERY flat looking. That's just a personal nitpick.

-I feel it could use 1 or 2 small easy access pockets on the back. All of the pockets are very large and very deep.

-Would have loved to have seen more color options.

Roll-top Hook system could use some work
I've had my back for just over 2 weeks now and have had the roll-top hooks come unhooked on me several times, some of which I fully take responsibility for since the bag wasn't designed for what I was using it for. Below are the 3 scenarios when one or both hooks came unhooked:

- Used as a carry-on on an airplane the hooks came unhooked sliding it under the seat in front of me (not really designed as a carry-on)

- Carrying laptop around, putting bag on, taking bag off

- Riding motorcycle

I've already tried doing more rolls and less rolls as well as trying different latching points on the bag that weren't specifically designed for the hooks to try to get more tension and a better hook point to keep the hooks in place. Nothing has worked.

My only option at this point if I had to keep the backpack would be to use a dremel to cut the hooks off and replace them with d rings or something more secure

If this backpack didn't cost so much, I wouldn't have an issue modifying it myself to make it fit/operate the way I expect it to. But with a $300 backpack, it should just work.

Backpacking in Europe (sort of)
I bought this backpack in preparation for a trip to Europe, one to be made OFF my bike. Never has there been a greater bag for a two-week trip full of walking than this bag.

The watertight construction kept my clothes, documents, and at times food completely dry, safe, and secure. Everything felt locked down a safe, and I wasn't worried about it getting a little dirty or snagging on the terrain.

I use this on my bike all the time for longer trips or any time I think I may need the extra space and I love it--it's incredibly comfortable to wear and it doesn't budge once it's set in place. The locking mechanism is easy to use with a gloved hand and I frequently get complimented on the bag. TSA was a little suspicious at first, but I had zero problems getting through customs in any of the countries I visited past an inquiring look.

For the motorcycle application when wearing a proper jacket, the straps are fantastic. When just wearing a cotton shirt and with a stock of supplies in the bag, however, it can wear the slightest bit on your shoulders and a little extra padding might be nice, but the structure of the straps keeps most of the weight off your shoulders, so it's not that bad at all. This, of course, AFTER two weeks of traveling with little discomfort whatsoever, so no points docked here.

The whole interior inverts and can be wiped down, making cleaning an absolute breeze. The expansion buckles help keep everything nice and tight once it's packed full. A little clip to lock in your keys and other things is a great touch that all motorcycle gear should come with!

This is something I will keep for many years and take with me on many adventures both on and off a motorcycle. Will undoubtedly order more from this company in the future. (Excellent customer service, by the way. Give Ian at Velomacchi a shout if you ever have questions about the product.)

Glad to see RevZilla is carrying this product and giving it some of the attention it deserves!

THE moto bag
Everything about this bag is amazing, from the overall durable construction to the small features. The first time I wore it into a dealership I got asked about it multiple times.

The magnetic roll top is smooth and simple, great pockets to fit tools, huge main compartment and easy to access zipper pocket. Big plus for a helmet hook because I don't ever leave my lid with the bike.

A few quirks:

As others mentioned, when not full it is a flat shape due to the durable backing it has as a base. I thought this might add some wind drag but I couldn't tell I had it on on the bike.

When off the bike it tends to slide upwards to my neck but a quick readjustment fixes this.

The magnetic coupler on mine came undone once or twice unintended, you just need to make sure it rotates fully when clasping shut.

Most importantly, it passed the "can it fit a six pack of beer" test. I look forward to rigging up straps for it but would have no problem on a full weekend trip if I had to wear it to carry other luggage. Awesome product, seems pricey at first but considering what you're getting here it's worth it.

Great Pack, Great Customer Service
General:
I have two Velomacchi packs... the 28L and the 40L and both are great! Stylish, large enough to hold my computer, snacks, water bottle, running shoes, and extra clothes all at the same time. Haven't tested the "water tight" claim (I don't ride in the rain) but the seams and roll top seem like they would do well to protect from water entry outside of a monsoon or falling into a lake/river/the ocean.

With the size and functionality the 28L and 40L packs work great as weekend trip packs or everyday commuters.

The only thing missing is some reflective material to help keep you visible to cagers at night.

Customer Service:
Recently after two+ years of heavy use the rivet holding the upper and lower half of the straps came loose on my 28L. I decided to jimmy rig a solution but after a week decided to email Velomacchi to get it repaired. Not only did they provide a shipping label and package to send my damaged pack to them, but they sent me a BRAND NEW 28L to boot.

These packs are the real deal. They're a bit expensive but the material is sound, they hold a ton, are super comfortable to wear and their customer service is awesome.

Well worth the investment!

Has anyone had any issues with the clips for the roll-top coming unhooked while riding/walking/using the backpack?
Josh L on Jun 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have only had mine a few days but have noticed them starting to come undone from just general use (moving it around my house, setting it down during class, etc). I have contacted Velomacchi and I'm hoping they will have a solution for me.
Can this fit a full face helmet?
