Great packI commute via bicycle, and regular backpacks weren't doing it for me, so I bought this in stormtrooper white about two weeks ago. This pack is wonderful to ride with. The straps are very comfortable and slightly stiffer than cheap backpack straps, which does a good job spreading the weight of the pack out and makes it feel lighter. The material is also very high quality. Despite the pack being white, its waterproofing repels most dirt and grime. I took a spill directly into a muddy ditch going +/- 20mph and landed on my side, dragging the pack about 10 feet through the dirt and grass, and when I got home I just washed it off in the shower and let it drip dry, and it's practically good as new. No rips or scuffs, just light stains from the mud. In hindsight, I would spend the extra $50 to get the black one to prevent stains, although it's merely an aesthetic choice.

Thoughtful design, and great fit!I love this bag. I've been on the search for a great bag for a while since I bike 265 days a year.
The variety of pockets and different ways to access them means there's a great place for any sized item.
The comfort is fantastic. I carried a 15lb bag of rice home and despite being weighed down I didn't feel discomfort anywhere. There is great shape to the bag so nothing really sags and the foam back/straps makes it very comfortable.
The size is huge! but due to zippers that control the size of the bag and compression straps the size is very manageable when it isn't stuffed to the gills.
The overall design is amazing and I can tell this bag will last me a long time since it's made with tough condura fabric.
