I have the No Drag and love it. It has plenty of pockets, an accommodation for hydropack and an mp3 player.

Ok thanks for the help it's between the Ogio no drag and the alpinestar charger...I like the ogio but on the alpinestar charger one shoulder strap detaches so it's easier to get on and off when wearing a jacket.

I have an icon squad backpack. I got it from a guy off craigslist for 40 bucks. I believe they are 80 brand new and has so many pockets and a zip down helmet holder.I like this better than the ogio because it has alot more space and the helmet holder

I got a First Gear backpack, and it is awesome. has a helmet bag at the bottom, a compartment for an Ipod and camelback, then 3 other smaller compartments on pack, as well as 2 pockets perfect for water bottles. It has a cell phone holder on the left strap, and then the main compartment is large enough for several text books AND has a laptop pocket with padding and a strap.
I did compare it to the ogi packs and decided I liked it better as it has more space, and having the laptop pocket was very important to me. The ogio does look nicer though.

Oh yeah and its only $75!

I have the Shoei, came out 3ish yrs ago, can easily handle a couple of books and a binder, and is expandable with zippers on both sides to accomodate your lid. Also had 2 side pockets, for cell phone, etc, and a chest strap. Learned my lesson after using my good ol' Jansport and losing my wallet and Crackberry on 45 a couple of years back Hasn't failed me yet!

I just use a hiking backpack that I got at Academy for $30. It has 3 compartments with all waterproof, load straps and has pockets for ipod and 2waterbottles. I regularly travel with laptop, jeans, sweaters, shoes with all in 1st compartment. The other 2 will just have T-shirts and other nick-nack in it. Also have phone compartment on strap, will feel vibration on shoulder.
I had looked at other biker bags but were too expensive for what you would get. Most were not compartmentalized.

i have a HELD backpack that i use to wear when i ride to teach MSF

it has a H clip design in the ft

the back has a zipper in an upside down U shape

and a bag that comes out and holds a helmet. now it might sound cool, but that helmat bag w/ a lid sticks out ? 2' from teh back pack so it's pretty cumbersome.

I ride with this one and no problems yet, plenty of room. I used to take clothes for two days, and all my heigene products and a lot of other stuff. I have even picked up parts with it. Has a helmet holder and straps so you could use it as a backpack. I use it to carry lunch everyday to work. I eat alot of lunch. A lot! I also carry tools in it too. I have also crash tested it. There is a strap that you tie off on your top tripple and a quick release when you want to take it off. The bag fell off but stayed attached to the bike with the strap.
