It's pretty much like a hiking backpack since I'm a student and I have to carry books around for college. Straps hang off the backpack and they're rather long. It's annoying when you're at speed and they are flopping around slapping your tank so I tuck them.

About things hitting my bike... I was rear ended by a lady at 30mph at a red light which dislocated my shoulder at the accident. Bugs, dirt or rocks don't matter at that point. Good joke! Thanks for reminding me..

I like riding with a backpack

I like carrying my backpack when riding.... it doesn't bother me and its just convenient because it should be little stuff inside... if its too much then I might as well drive my jeep...

I'd like to get a nice black camelbak with the bladder. Something big enough to fit about 4 bags of groceries. Probably equivalent to two saddle bags? It would also need the chest strap with buckles... That would be great.

^ you could look into Patagonia and then retrofit a bladder onto it...in sure camelbak has exactly what you are looking for though.

But I'm very pleased with my Patagonia backpack. 28L of space!!

A MOLLE 3 day pack is great for something like this. Most of them have bladder pouches, plenty of storage and the ability to change the bag for whatever you need it for.

There are dozens of different types by different manufacturers so just do a little research.

I have been carrying a backpack full of books to high school and college everyday for the past 2 1/2 years. Its so heavy that i can barely pick it up sometimes, but i cant notice it really on the bike. When i hop on, i loosen the straps so that it rests on the seat with me or supported by my tail section. Being small and having all that extra room may help though(145lbs).

9/10 I use my camelback backpack. I spent $80 on it so I better use it. It's smaller and light don't even notice it's there. I also have a motocentric tail bag I use if I ever take a couple day trip. Both work really well...

Commute to work as long as the low is above freezing and it isn't snowing/raining. I bought the Ogio NoDrag Mach 5 backpack but returned it. It couldn't hold everything I needed to carry. Looked good but there were too many negative aspects about the bag and coupled with a pretty hefty price it just wasn't worth it. Ended up getting an Adidas backpack for hauling laptop, tablet, lunch/drink, clothes for exercising, and a bunch of odds and ends. Planning to get a Kriega US-20 by summer time. Hate wearing backpacks but it was all I could find at the time that would fit my laptop. Riding w/o a backpack is just much more comfortable.

I carry a laptop bag made by axio daily to and from work either in the cage when cold and rainy. It is practically my mobile office in the event that I need to work from home or on the road as my job dictates. It appears small but it carries loads more than you would expect and matches what I had in a larger bag with room to spare.

This is what I carry now:

http://www.axioluggage.com/slingpack.html

You repsol riders might like this:

http://www.axioluggage.com/repsol.html

Their bags are not the cheapest but they are durable and made for riders so are ergonomic and have extra straps to stabilize the backpack so it does not move around when riding. Browse around their site if interested. I got mine off Amazon once I figured out which one would work for me.

I'm pretty excited, I just picked this pack up a few days ago. I've been looking for months for something sleek with lots of adjustment straps in all black that I can carry at least 4 bags of groceries including things like milk, soda cans, pizza's and stuff that you would otherwise think you couldn't carry in just a back pack. This thing has 2,135.832 cu inches of space. I also wanted something to use for small trips and summer rides, so I added a hydropak in it which holds 2.0 liters. I really wanted the chest strap and waist strap too which were included, so this thing is freakin' perfect. I love the stealth look too, matches the all black gear perfectly. I have a total investment of 130.00 into it including the platypus hydration bladder. I like how it looks a lot smaller than it actually is.

Small? Are you kidding? That thing looks massive!

I wear a backpack practically everywhere ( nowhere near as big as his though). I mainly just put lunch in it for work.. and for school, I usually have 3 textbooks (ea. ~1.5 in. thick) and a notebook.

I do have a spare vehicle, but its horrible on gas.. so I ride whenever possible. If I'm just going for a burger or something small, I'll put the sack down my jacket.

I just wear my gear around school and other places.. lockers at work..



This is why things are so cheap from China:

I'm not kidding.

It really isn't very big looking from the outside, honestly for the amount of space it has inside. A quarter fits perfectly in the M logo to give you a size comparison. I used it for the first time today on my dual sport, I was riding 70 mph on the expressway, it was windy and snow was blowing everywhere, I had no issues whatsoever. This pack is excellent.

Oh yeah I feed the bladder hose through the correct outlet, I didn't know it actually had one until my brother pointed it out today. It comes out small openings on either side of the top.

I used to just backpack it in highschool(itweighed a ton). College isnt a big deal since with weight atm.

I used to lossen the straps to my backpack and rest it on the seat with me. Couldnt tell it was even on really.

As for gear, I only wear gloves and a helmet. Too much of a hassle without much reward for such a short distance to wear much more. Some are different though and i respect and understand it.
