I've got an Ogio myself. Been using it for over a year with no issues. Ridden in the rain and the inside stays dry. The web mesh on the inside near the bottom will eventually get shredded by the zipper though.

Forget backpacks. Houston Summers are already hot enough without a rucksack cutting off air circulation and trapping sweat on you back.

Get you one of these:

The original squad is a good bag though if you can find one. I've never had problems with mine.

Yea, great post...

Backpacks fit more stuff than tank bags, and I'll pass on a tail bag. Also, I'd rather be able to go into a full tuck with a backpack vs an obstructed tuck with a tank bag.

Plus the Ogio is aerodynamic and will hold up at high speeds. Then the zipper is on the back side so no worries of unzipping at high speeds.

So what are you using, or are you using a hydration pack?
I've been using a dakine hydrapak. Not sure how I would use it with the backpack.

Wait what? So you don't have it installed in the backpack? I just remembered I have a Magellan bladder fitted for a backpack. Should work well for me if I get the Ogio

I have this one...
Targus - Mini Motor Backpack Laptop Case
Model: TSB209US SKU: 1263076
Less than $20
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Targus+-...&skuId=1263076

It was small enough to be comfortable on the bike, but carried all my stuff. The side pockets were great for water bottles. I just used a trash bag or grocery bag if it looked like rain. It shows no signs of wear after motocommuting 3 days a week for 2 semesters.... 70miles roundtrip.
1263076 ra

Although, I have an Axio tail bag now... it's SOOOOO nice not having anything on your back. I use it with a cheap $5 drawstring backpack... but that wouldn't be very comfy with big books or laptop. The tailbag can be worn as a single strap messenger bag, but well... it looks retarded and you'd just scratch it up. I mounted mine semi-permanently.
not my bike, just a reference...

Yea tail bags just aren't my thing unless I decide to do some touring. Really don't want to test their capabilities at 180+....

The hydra option on the pack is simply an extra pocket on the inside that has a closure and a little water droplet on it to signify "put your water here" There isn't really even a hole for the hose to exit the pack from. I just use a Dakine Hydra Pak.

If you do get a backpack, be sure to buy one with a sturdy quick-release waist strap. It really helps to stabilize the backpack and turn it somewhat into a back protector. That is one advantage I can see of wearing a rucksack.
