Finding the right backpack can be a tricky dilemma for some motorcyclists, and the correct solution will largely depend on the kind of riding you do.

Urban commuters will want a bag that can hold a laptop, protect its contents from a sudden downpour, and stay comfortable on the shoulders. Long distance riders will want many of the same features but perhaps with additional space, more shoulder strap padding, and improved aerodynamics for higher speed highway riding.

Our Top 6 Motorcycle Backpacks is a preliminary list based on our own personal experience – we’ve spent time with each of these bags and even own a couple of them. If you have a motorcycle backpack you think belongs here please add it in the comments section below and we’ll investigate it – having people chime in with their own personal experiences can be absolutely invaluable.
