I bought this backpack mostly for the fact that it's military spec. Being a military spouse it's a lot easier or me to ride around base with a backpack such as this.
It's also saved my life on a few occassions. The space in the backpack makes it ideal for travel. And, since I'm a woman, this backpack is very convenient when I need to make an emergency trip to the store.
It holds my gear when I'm not using it and as space for a phone on the straps.
This backpack does it all and I won't hesitate to spend e money on another one should the need arise.

Pros: Very Comfortable for long distances
Cons: Armbands difficult to get in and out of...
Purchased this back pack with the intention of putting a lot of miles with it as my VROD Muscle does not have saddle bags. I needed something to use on those 3-4 day weekend road trips. It's comfortable, easy to put on and take off, the pockets are easy to access and it was evident a rider designed pocket placement. I spent 4 days in the saddle first time on the road with this product, approx 1200 miles and never did it seem to bother me...Don't put too much weight into this bag or the front harness will start riding up your chest to your neck..but it's perfect for a couple pair of jeans, could shirts, toiletry items and cell phone and accessories. I did not use the laptop slot. The harness is designed in a way to keep the weight from tugging on your shoulders all day...perfect for what I needed as I have a bum left shoulder. If you want something to commute to work with...even better...great visibility.I took the reflective arm bands off...I thought it was a pain trying to get into and out of them..but it might just be that I'm not coordinated enough..ha It was a great idea of Icon to make those removable..Can't say anything about durability...havn't had it long enough to comment on that. All in all, it's a great product for what I tend to use it for.

Pros: Roomy, holds helmet and gear
I've been riding with this for two weeks on my GSXR. Just sitting on the bike its great but, when I put my feet on the pegs and take off the backpack rides up and hits my helmet. Might be because I'm short. Hopefully after a few more weeks of riding it breaks in better.
