We own the 25L and 40L sizes. My wife and I carry one each on the back of our bikes when touring. The bags themselves are perfect. We've never had any leakage and they easily attach to the motorcycle. My only complaint is with the straps which are barely long enough for the 40L bag if fully loaded. The straps also tend to creep and loosen over time. I solved this by adding a strip of tape just past the buckle. Looking into adding cam buckles to speed the process.

This is a good deal, considering the build and features. I really like having both a belly and a sternum strap. Seems like it'll hold up well. I'd like the zippers to operate more smoothly - they get a little hung up on the material underneath them at the curved part of the zipper travel. My main complaint is that I'd prefer to have a backpack with a more flexible cargo-carrying shape (read - a more traditionally-shaped backpack). It does look good when on the bike and is comfortable. I just feel limited as to what I can fit into the backpack because of how the bag is shaped and the lack of an expanding section.

The design of the latch hampers the storage ability of my extra large helmet fits my 650 vstrom great I like the overall size and look very decent value.

First time I strapped bag to bike it ripped at contact point over 1 inch. Now it's not water proof. When I got back from trip, forgot to mail it back. Got around to it 2 years 3 months later. Opps. 3 months too late. I mailed it to Givi asking for repair or replace, they mailed it back to me unrepaired. Spit in my face. Sorry. Your 2 years is up. Do you want to do business with a 2 year warranty company? Not me. Givi did not do the right thing in this instance.

I was glad to find this item. Had been looking for something to keep a bottle of water close at hand on my scooter (Honda PCX 150)as it gets pretty hot setting in the sun in southeast Texas. I was able to attach it to my scooter (at the center hub of the handlebars) using the belt loop with the snap. That keeps it handy for a quick sip while waiting for the light to change. The added bonus is that I can remove it from the scooter and attach it to my belt while enjoying outdoor walks, car shows, etc., so it can serve a duel purpose. The fit and quality appear to be excellent. Installation for me, on the PCX was easy once I decided where it should be mounted. I recommend this product, not just for scooters, but for many outdoor activities such as hiking or walking for exercise or as a spectator at the local baseball field. Also, the price is reasonable as well!

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.
