Ogio No Drag Mach 5

Seen this bag on youtube as I was looking to purchase an OGIO no drag. Anyone have any experience with this? It seems new and has an accessorry pouch in the front and a visor compartment which is pretty neat.

Only compliant I've read is that it scratches easily and is not flat on the bottom... but its damn sexy

I was looking at this myself

I've heard nothing but good things about those Kriega Bags, but for my use, I only need to store clothes and a pair of shoes and I just can't get over how nice the OGIO looks.

I'm sure the R25 is more practical in everyday use as the zippers are on the outside for access. OGIO having a life-time warranty also sways me more in their favor even tho Kriega has a 10 year warranty.

I know, i like the looks of Ogio too. Kriega looks like a parachute lol but everybody loves those straps - they say you cant even feel the bag on your back.

Ogio looks a little more aerodynamic. Not sure. I wish they were a little cheaper

I have the ogio no drag. Its GREAT. Lots of little things that make it better for riding. straps / positioning etc.

Little pricey but well worth it

Love how the Kriega has large reflective patches.. if you're a commuter, the Kriega makes more sense IMO

My problem is that I'm a fatty.. so the bags with the chest harness usually ride high enough to choke me in a tuck. I have an Icon squad II which I thought I would love but always go back to my Oakley backpack. That and the Icon is a total POS.. this is the second one I have had on warranty and it's ripped worse than the first one.

The thing I didn't like about the Ogio was that it never seemed to hold it's shape if it was empty. It would always collapse in on itself which made it ugly. Sure, it still functions, but why buy a bag that is going to be ugly half of the time?

Maybe they fixed that in the new on. We really need a review on this. Someone bite the bullet!!! I would, but I'm about to drop $200 on a disc golf bag >.<.

What didn't you like about the ICON? Seemed pretty quality, with nice, thick padding and lots of useful compartments (+the reflective visibility)

I have the Ogio no Drag as well...love the backpack. Even with my 15inch macbook and school books, you don't really feel it shifting around on your back like a regular backpack. You really don't notice you have a backpack on except for the weight of things you have in it.

I have the No Drag (not the Mach 5) and it is usually *just* big enough. Room for work shoes, lunch, visor, iPad/laptop, and a thermos. If I add a change of clothes, the front (next to my body) bulges a bit. I've never had any issues with the bag not holding it's shape, the shell is very firm.

My only real complaint is that the Velcro securing the laptop sleeve isn't adjustable, so if I'm packing a change of clothes and my iPad, I stick them both in that slot.

The Mach 5 sounds like its a little nicer, and wouldn't hesitate to pick one up if something happened to my current one. I would also look at the option of getting a tail bag rather than a backpack. It seems like it would be more comfortable on longer rides and may have more storage capacity.

Actually really want a good tank back bank pack, thanks OP for posting.

So just to clarify, these bags with the mags will stick to our tanks securely for highway riding? Hate how sweaty my back gets with a back pack...

That mach5 looks sick, as far as looks though I think i'm digging the r25 though :)

Don't be fooled, it's a POS. The reflective panels rip at the seems if the shoulder straps. The plastic frame in the back cuts through the bad on the sides leaving the sides exposed and frayed (I'll take pics at work tonight). It does have tons of storage, is easily expandable and is very reflective but the quality sucks. This is my second one ONLY because I got the bag replaced on warranty, which i may look into again.

What year is your bike? I know that the only way that a magnetic bag is staying on my 08 tank is to glue some metal strips to the bottom of the tank cover. I think it may be the same since 05?

Yeah I have an 05, I wondered if I'd have to do something because of the tank plastic...hmm

I have the same issue with my OGIO No Drag bag. It has two significant dips/indents that make it look weird/ugly. Honestly, I hardly use the bag. I've used it a handful of times, and it has always been stored indoors. Why it has these two large indents is just odd to me. Also, I don't like how it zips open from the rear (part that touches your back).

You live and learn, and I'd personally give Kriega a try...or save some money and purchase a $40 backpack on zappos.com. They literally have hundreds to choose from......

Here are those pictures I promised of the Icon Squad II:






The shoulder strap part regarding the reflective piece isn't really a big deal, more of a pet peeve. The huge whole on the side though drives me crazy. That's not even really a pressure point for the bag. I'd like to blame it on the plastic sheet that works to hold the bags form, but the tear is underneath where the plastic sits against the fabric.

After looking into some of the bags that are already at Cycle Gear(where I bought my squad II) I am probably going to return this one.. again.. and swap it out for the Ogio no drag mach 5. Cycle Gear doesn't stock it yet, but they have every other one of the no drags, so I am sure they will get it in soon enough. It was either that or go with the Squadron RSS. The only thing I don't really like about the squadron is that it's not hydration ready. This is important in TX during 110 degree summers.

They seemed to have solved the problem with the bag(no drag) not holding it's shape. The mach 5 is molded and looks solid. It's got some metal accents, some reflective piping and the logo is fully reflective as well. Hydration pouch, lap top pouch, tablet pouch, standard backpack pockets, shoe harnesses, adjustable divider, visor pouch, sunglasses pouch, stealth handle, adjustable waist strap, removable pouch and helmet clip.

I mean the thing looks pretty boss, not going to lie.

I have an OGIO Mach 3 No Drag 2012 bag. Just got it. It's awesome. Very comfortable to ride with. It's for the most part the same as the Mach 5 with a few less compartments I believe. Great bag. I love the relfective liner in it.

I will comment on the picture that they take and advertise though. There is no way that bag would close with all the compartments full like that :D. It would be tight on the zipper if it did and would result in a tear.
