Overall an excellent backpack to take around. I enjoy the extra expandable space as well as the visor saver area.
The one thing I wish OGIO would improve on is their zippers on these backpacks. They feel cheap and may be likely to break. Would have much preferred the YKK zippers most jackets have.
I have several backpacks and bags, and for commuting through the city, this is my favorite. The layout, size and arrangement of pockets make it convenient to store the things I carry, which are clothes and food in the main compartment, and iPad, phone, sunglasses, and accessories in the others. The padded compartment for a laptop or iPad is very cool, and I like the drawstring closed main compartment for larger things. I read that it has 28L of volume, but it doesn’t seem like it’s only 2L shy of my Kriega 30. It would be great if all backpacks had Kriega shoulder straps, but these are decent. My questions for choosing a backpack are: What do I need to carry in it? What size and design do I want to ride with? What do I want to spend on it? The Ogio Throttle was affordable and best answers these needs for me.
Being a college student I need to fit my laptop and all of the essentials for the day, which this bag does just that! It is light and comfortable to wear, people comment on the bag everyday, and it has become my go to bag when I go out. I don't feel as much drag from The bag as I did from my previous one, So in all it is a great bag. The only problem being a hard shell is that is sits weird when it is off the bike.
Fits on the tank for a Ninja 250R most excellent, no modifications. Fold the magnets, add the strap, sling backpack! Very unisex. My dad has used it on his VFR Interceptor carrying stuff for P. E. Wears it just fine.
