I've tried multiple general use packs while riding and they always left something to be desired. Either they moved around to much, caused buffeting, or we're uncomfortable after a few minutes.
The R20 just nails it. The "quadloc-lite" system just plain works. The pack will stay put even when it's empty. It really does a good job of positiong the weight of the pack. The sizing is just right so buffeting is minimal and the workmanship is great.
I'm getting the US-10 and cube packs to expand it when needed.

RevZilla Staff Premium T-Shirt Lovingly concocted in 2007 and named El Moto Diablo for its geared theme and devilish lines, the RevZilla Staff Tee Shirt has been part of our lineup from the beginning. It's also the same blue shirt in every video that Anthony has been rocking since Day One of RevZillaTV on Youtube. People love to point out that Anthony doesn't ever change his clothes. I guess when it works you stick with it. The tee is screen-printed on a high thread-count blank that is anything but one of those throw away tees you get free at the ball game. We wear tees a lot - almost every day - and we are very particular about how they fit, feel and hold up wash after wash. Sizing is true to size - if anything they run a hair on the small side. Show your love for TeamZilla. Make a statement. Boom.

Seriously, it's a t-shirt. I fly the RevZilla flag in the Pacific Northwest. Who's representing in your town?

Great helmet, if you have the right head shape.

I'll be brief. If you have a long-oval head shape, then buy this helmet now. (BTW, the long oval is the shape of your crown, not your face. I figured I had a round oval since I have fat face, now I know better.)
Fit is everything, so for reference I'll tell you that I wear an XL in the Arai RX-Q and an L in the Arai Signet-Q. Those being round oval and extreme long oval respectively. I got the XL in the Speed-R and it's perfect. I'd say the fit is long-oval, just between the two Arai's above.
The Rest:
Materials, finish, paint, details, and design are all top-shelf. The liner is very comfortable, it has good ventilation, and the optically correct shield is perfect. The inner visor is usefull when it's hot. I just leave the shield up as long as I'm moving at less than 30mph. Beyond that you get too much air.
I've put about 1,000 miles on it and the only gripe I have is that the detentless shield got a little loose. I'm willing to call it just a "break-in" issue since it has a little allen head screws to adjust the tension. Been fine since I tightened it.
I'm riding a naked bike (Kawasaki Er-6n) and I have no idea if the design helps like they say, but the helmet is plenty stable at speed and during head-checks. It's also really quiet, much more so than any helmet I've had previously. Comfortable too.
All in all, it's a seriously high quality piece of equipment. I have no problem recommending it to you.....if you have the right head shape. :)
Apparently I totally lied about being "brief" though. Sorry.

In a nutshell, these are the equivalent of a very high-end motocross glove. They look great, flow air very well, and the stitching/welds appear to be top-notch. I gave them an "average" in regards to protection since they won't do much in an accident. A little leather/clarino is better than nothing in a pinch though.
If you have hot weather, these are great. If the temperature approaches about 55 degrees you'll be sorry if your ride is more than 5-10 minutes long.
Sizing was spot-on for American's. I'm 6', 225lbs, and wear an XL in just about everything. They would make a good back-up glove too since they are very light and foldable.
