Backpack recommendations? - September 8, 2011, 09:29 AM

My old fieldshere has seen better days. Looking for a replacement. Used mostly for commuting, so it will have my shoes, computer, lunch and some files in it. Also will be used for around town hauling.

Must be able to fit a helmet (its a good size comparison) and rain proof would be a bennifit, one that converts to a tank bag like my current one would be a plus.

Cost is a factor, cause Im a cheap ass.

Throw up some recommendations, looking at the following right now:

Fieldsheer Back Pack Convertible - Street Bike - Motorcycle Superstore

Fieldsheer Skid Lid Back Pack Bag - Street Bike - Motorcycle Superstore

Rapid Transit Shrapnel Motorcycle Backpacks

Ogio Clutch Motorcycle Backpacks


Ogio Spark Motorcycle Backpacks

Ogio Dakar 1950 Motorcycle Backpacks

I have an older version of the 1950, its been a great pack, occassionally a bit small, but thats only when i'm trying to carry all my flight pubs in it. I've taken it off road, lots of commuting with it, excellent all around pack. 6 years of almost daily use and some seams are finally starting to come apart.

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

I toted an Ogio backpack around the world 3 or four times. Through Africa, through South America. It's got dirt from every continent on it, and it still looks basically new.

I'm a huge fan of Ogio.

Blackhawk Phoenix Pack Black

these are bulletproof. Can be sprayed to be water resistant. Great price, they hold a ton of shit.

It's not pretty, and it's not supposed to be. Offer him $60.

love my backpack, Dakine heli pro. Big enough for anything I've ever needed, and it has padded waist/ kidney straps so you can cinch it down and it doesn't move around. Also can carry a camelbak bladder. The compression straps are nice too. And I've beat the crap out of it for the past year or so and it still looks new...

Enough straps to secure it to my tailsection on the DRZ, have never tried it as a tank bag- don't see enough tie downs up there.

I would be an owner of an Ogio had Ram cycles kept them in stock after I first saw one there. Instead I went to REI and settled on The North Face Surge. It's a damn good commuter pack IMO, and it replaced the TNF Yavapai I used for almost 15 years without so much as a frayed seam. It sucks that TNF became fashionable, but they didn't let that stop them from making good shit, I will say that.



How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

I use this:


JR.com: Wenger 15.4-inch Maxxum Computer Notebook Backpack GA-7303-13F00 in Computer Carrying Cases


It's held up really well, is comfortable on long trips, and is kinda waterproof (I've been caught in some heavy rain and didn't really get anything wet). The straps are really comfortable, the top portion is elastic so it can fit tight but still allow mobility.

Isn't designed to be an MC pack, so doesn't really hold a helmet. Besides that, it's been awesome. At $50 it's fairly cheap, also.

Every backpack I have from this point forward will have those waist straps.... I see the pipergear one also has them. They make a huge difference...
