I wanted to replace the laptop briefcase which I would bungee to the back seat of my bike. I selected the Alpinestars Tech Aero because of my familiarity with the brand and the built-in raincover. The backpack just barely fits my 17" laptop (15.5" x 11" x 1.25") and has space for the power supply and other gear, and pockets for pens/pencils/etc. I would prefer the external helmet carrier to be replaced with a zippered pouch to allow carrying more briefcase-type items. The water-resistant zippers are a bit stiff, but the raincover does its job and keeps everything in the main backpack compartment dry. The cover also stays put at highway speeds. The waist pouches are not covered by the raincover and are not waterproof. The cellphone holder is ridiculously small and also not waterproof, but can be removed. The waist and torso straps keep the backpack from moving around, and the quick-release shoulder strap is very convenient. I rated durability 4/5 since I've only been using this backpack for a few weeks and would like more data...nothing has broken or torn so far.
Yes, I recommend this product.
