Backpack Recommendations

Greetings!

I am looking for a backpack recommendation to buy a good, lightweight backpack bag in the states.
From user reviews, the Ski Bum coupons bag looks good and also it is not expensive.
but I want to know what backpack you guys likes to enjoy.


I am looking forward to your replies.

Hi,

After a lot of searching I settled on an Ogio Mach 5. Itís comfortable, waterproof and has lots of space. Itís not the cheapest but does the job well.

Hereís a link to one retailer - google for best price....

A $20 backpack from Walmart will work fine.

I guess it all depends on what he wants the backpack for. I needed something to keep my laptop safe and dry as I commuted everyday rain or shine on the bike. Also my el cheap bag I originally had would slide around on my back in corners which wasnít a nice feeling.

I just got a Solo laptop bag on Amazon for $50. To me, the most important thing with a MC backpack is a chest strap. Second, and for any bag, is how organized it is.

Heavily padded for your back, holds a lot.
Most comfortable I've ever had.

My father left this Earth for Heaven 5/22/18.
I love you dad, you'll be greatly missed.
I'll always keep on keeping on.

Backpack?

I thought that meant a woman on the back of your bike LOL.
Around here it does anyways.

Last backpack I had, was my adult Asian Neice visiting us from Nanjing China.



As Winchester mentioned, If and when I use one, I use one I've had laying around for years. It's a Red Harken (sailing gear maker) one. It has a padded laptop pouch in it as well.
If you really needed waterproof in a pinch, put things in a trash bag too, then in the backpack.
I'm sure the specialty ones linked here are awesome too.

What kind of backpack do you want? What things are you planning to put in there. Bought one in Costco for a cheap price $49. You'll probably find cheaper ones depending on what style you'd like to have.

This is a great topic so far I own atleast 3 of them and I’m not happy with none. Ideally u want a back pack tight to ur back while riding , long story short I have one too big one 2 small one 2 bulky some of the straps don’t stay tight. etc etc , my biggest problem I think tho It always seems I need a back pack when I’m already out on my bike so I’m going to drive home first to get it?!?! Pain in the butt! , my next back pack I’m looking for I think will have no padding or dividers I want to be able too ball it up or fold it or even have a separate cove to place it in even if it’s a zip lock so I can make it small enuff while not useing it to fit in the storage in my tail!

Has anyone tried this or simular? Based on wat I read on the site it folds into a pocket built into the bag when ur not using it. I think it’s exactly wat I been looking for to store it into my storage compartment in my tail of my bike.
