Ogio Riding Bag
June 13, 2012(Endicott, NY)
I purchased the Ogio bag a few months ago and it has been the most useful piece of gear that i have purchased. I commute to work on a regular basis and carry with me a laptop, and charger, house keys, cell phone, cell charger, hoody, lunch, and my wallet. I also use the helmet bag very frequently on my leisure rides i drive to pick up my passengers and this is a great feature. Except it does not fit all helmets i have a dual sport that doesnt fit the bag. also is waterproof, know from experience
Good concept, poor execution.

It looks cool, but parts of the shell and front pocket are made with a semi-rigid foamy material that distorts VERY easily and won't go back to their original shape. Overfill it once and you'll end up with a very ugly backpack. That happened to me.
Small compartments, poorly placed straps and bad zippers

I guess I will start with the zipper popping apart. Next I couldn't even fit my rain gear in it. The sternum straps are up where they choke you. The shoulder straps are so thick they get in the way when you are looking to change lanes and pinch your neck. Good part: it looks cool that's about it!!

This is my commute to work backpack. Fits the following: Laptop , (13"), Ipad, legal pad, rain coat, wallet, keys, glasses, phone and 5-6 pens. The helmet carrier is great for walking to and from parking lot (.5 mile from office), and is easy to use. Not waterproof however, so make sure to wear it under rain gear. Fits easily over armored jacket. Straps are secure and good quality. Would recommend this for the student or office junky who loves to ride to work. It also looks great.
Bigger and better than I expected - another great Ogio bag

I needed something bigger than a small tank bag and more convenient than a tail bag. The bungee thing gets old fast. I wanted a backpack designed to take the wind blast of motorcycle riding. I don't carry a laptop so that part of the bag will be used for carrying my tablet and flat packed clothes. The main compartment will be primarily for camera gear. I travel light most times.

It’s awesome, and fits great over leathers.
Good for 13 laptop

This bag is for the minimalist. If you are traveling from point A to point B, and you plan to bring to bring your laptop and stay overnight (this includes some change of clothes) - bring another bag. If you plan to bring your laptop, a regular legal notepad, power adapter, and your phone - plan to use this bag. This bag simply doesn't carry much, it is made for the minimalist. Though, it works great. The only issue I had with my unit is that one of the fasteners came off time and time again. My solution was just to sew the material around the fastener. Hack.

This Backpack is Awesome! It is extremely comfortable and attaches well. I do wish it was a little larger inside but it is all good...
Pretty nice bag for the money

I have only ridden this bag a few times so far, but it has been good so far. The laptop sleeve will not fit a 15 inch laptop, but it will fit in the same compartment out of the sleeve. I can get a pair of shoes and a little bit of clothing into the outter compartment and that is about it. Just like most backpacks, it will get hot on your back sitting in traffic, but you really forget it is there at highway speeds. It does not interfere with either my Shoei or Arai helmet, and overall seems to be a good product. I would recommend it to a friend.
Good pack but doesn't quite fit a 15" laptop as claimed

I really like this pack and selected it because it indicated it would fit a 15" laptop. Unfortunately it doesn’t quite make it. The laptop sleeve is probably sized better for a 14" model. I can carry my laptop but not in the sleeve and I have to remove the laptop battery too as it extends a bit out the back. Overall it is a great pack though. It is comfortable, very adjustable, roomy enough and stands up to good day-to-day use.
