I've got a Ojio no-drag backpack and some kreiga bags.
The Ojio is the only backpack I would use as it literally is unnoticeable at speed.
I've don't 200+ kph runs tucked on the tank of my old k1300r with ZERO influence from the backpack.
But if your looking for bags for the bike Kreiga is hard to beat for the price.
3000 k ride across the rockys and a rain soaked ride across the BC coast line and no issues. Easy to mount. Easy to remove. And 100% waterproof

not trying to turn this into a safety thread, but i have also heard that in a crash, a backpack will actually catch and tumble you instead of sliding to a stop, resulting in more shoulder/arm injury. just something to think about.
