I'm kinda worried. I've been looking at those Boblbee backpacks and want to buy them but I'm not sure if I should.

Are they gonna protect my back in a fall or break it? :roll:

i remember reading this before lightly in another post , but i'm guessing it all depends on how you fall and how much the impact it has on your back ... i thought these hard packs would protect you until i heard that at times they can hurt you ... only thing i know about the boblbee backpacks is that it will hurt your wallet :wink:

The Axio Hardpack has a soft backliner, the "shell" is the only hard part. I don't see how it would hurt your back. The packs are not HARD in the true sense of the word. The shells are more likely to break into pieces than actually stay in one piece and cause you bodily damage.

I knew a guy once named Jim that crashed with one of those backpacks on. The shell broke into several very sharp pieces like guillotines and severed his head, arms, and spine. He survived, but goes by Mat now. :wink:

So I guess it's a bad idea to wear a hard backpack after all? That really sucks. :x

I know of a guy who was just wearing a normal back pack, with his wallet, camera, and cell phone inside, while even wearing a back protector and still managed to dislodge one of his vetebrea in a fall. The doctors said the location of the items in his pack created enough of a pressure point to do this damage to his spine. Just take it easy out there. You never know what can happen.

Why do you need a 600RR?

Simple answer... it's not a matter of NEED. It's a matter of WANT. If I think a hardpack looks cool and has the storage options I want, then it's my choice to buy it. People buy the things that appeal to them, it's as simple as that. If there wasn't a market for hardpacks, they wouldn't be manufactured.

Personally I don't want anything on my back but a protector. Even a soft pack with soft items in it can become hard as a rochk when compressed at impact or get caught on something. A tankbag or tailbag is the best choice IMO. That said get what you want, if you want total safety don't ride.

People have interpreted my username as "eat what garbage falls" or something like that but it actually came from my favorite videogames which I worshiped years ago, Tekken. EWGF is one of the best moves in the game, it stands for Electric Wind God First. :twisted:

I know it's lame, you don't have to tell me. :lol2:
