I have been using this Icon bag for awhile and I like it. It converts from a tank bag to backpack quickly and it holds a lot of stuff. To waterproof I just line it with a trash bag.

How have I never seen one of those? That thing looks sweet

I just use a regular backpack for now. One thing I would recommend is if you carry your keyset in your bag, make sure it is secured to something so you don't lose it if the zipper opens up. Ask me how I know

I guess it heavily depends on your price range...

For up to $60 you can find a nice Swiss Gear like Doug mentioned,
I too have one of those and gotta say they're pretty comfortable.
And they got a million pockets for organizing stuff and keeping an OCD
guy like me happy

If you wanna go up to $160 you can get the Astars tech aero that I've
been eyeballing but dont really wanna spend that much for a backpack.
And then you can tell me where you'll be keeping it

I've looked at all the video reviews for the other similar models and this one looks like the best bet for how I intend on using it.

Did it come with the Hydration pack? It says hydration ready, but I wasn't sure if that meant they include the pack.....

Yeah, I had my Motocentric on for the ride yesterday. I carry it about 50% of the times I ride. I don't even feel it on back roads. , I had it the whole time at the dragon!
