Chrome Citizen Night in general, but on the bike that's what saddle bags are for. When I do ride with a pack I've got a Camelbak bag (fairly large, has space for the water pouch, hose routing, etc, and is fairly water resistant).

Kriega hands down is the best back pack for riding a motorcycle. Expensive but worth the money. I have the 30l water proof one and it's amazing.

I just use a UCP 3-day rucksack. In reality it can be a 5 day, but nonetheless, it does the job!

Tail bag with a nice handle for me. Can fit a ton of stuff in my Cortech Sport tail bag. IT actually looks decent when off the bike also.

I don't see how anyone can ride with a backpack in this heat. You lose all the ventilation with one.

I've always admired your attention to gear. For hydra pack I use an Ogio Erzberg 70 and it has very small space to keep a few snacks.

For backpack I used to use a Ogio No Drag Mach 3. I didn't like how it fit around the waist but it was packed with a lot of neat features. I have since converted to a Kriega R25 and absolutely love it. Having a proper riding backpack makes a world of a difference.

I use an Oakley kitchen sink!! Not the smallest back pack, but it's functional for what I need it for.

I like my Kriega and Mini-Buran because they dont interfere with your arms/shoulders...almost like they are not there.

I'm a teacher, I hate that backpack!!!! It doesn't even hold a binder!

But since we're talking moto..if you're going cheap...as long as it has a chest strap to keep the shoulder ones in place.
