Riding a motorcycle is like nothing else you’ve ever done. Even though cars are fun, safer, and more reliable, bikes give you the feeling of the wind on your face and a breath of fresh air as you ride down roads and through cities. But bikes are not as good when it comes to carrying luggage. Yes, you can put side paniers or soft luggage bags on your bike. But a backpack is the best way to go when you want to travel light but still bring some important things with you.
Backpacks are no longer just for carrying papers around. They’ve become popular fashion accessories, and both men and women wear them for different reasons. Motorcyclists aren’t any different. Backpacks for motorcyclists aren’t new, but there have been some big changes in the past few years that have made them easier to use, more attractive, and able to carry a lot more gear, as well as easier on your wallet. Let’s look at ten of these high-quality motorcycle backpacks and talk about why you need one.
OGIO Mach 5
The Mach 5 is probably one of the most advanced and popular backpacks on this list, both in terms of how it looks and how well it works.
The bag is made so well that it almost looks like it should be a part of the body.
The Mach 5 shows why OGIO is one of the best bag makers on the market. They made the bag so that it can’t get wet. This makes it great for almost any kind of weather. The bag is also big enough to hold a regular-sized (15-inch) laptop and still have room to spare.
You might think it would be heavy because it holds so much, but the way it’s made makes it feel very light. It’s attached to the body so it’s easier to move. Looks, storage, and being light: what more could you want?
This could be the best motorcycle bag for city use on the market. Seibertron’s bag is easy to carry, very flexible, and can hold a lot of things you need for work. The company is proud of making simple bags, which is a good thing.
The price is right for the Seibertron 37L. It wasn’t made to look stylish; it was made to work.
This bag is everything you thought you didn’t need in a bag. It has a 900D polyester coating that protects against abrasion and rough handling and keeps water out to a certain extent. Unquestionably a good choice.
Alpinestars City Hunter
Alpinestars is a brand that makes jackets, boots, and even motorcycle backpacks that put safety first. This is just what The City Hunter shows.
It is made of 420D nylon, which means that the contents will be safe no matter how rough the backpack is handled or how hard it rains.
The backpack looks like any other backpack. It has a 25-liter storage space and a base that is made to last. But what makes Alpinestars such a respected brand in the business is the materials they use. You can’t go wrong with this one because it has a special fleece-lined compartment to keep your electronics safe.
In case you’re new to the world of motorcycles, SHOEI makes helmets, and they’re quite popular. The brand is known for making only high-quality items, so it’s obvious that the SHOEI 2.0 motorcycle backpack will be the same.
The number of pockets is one of the first things you notice about the backpack. SHOEI thinks that every part of their bags should be useful, from the shoulder straps to the separate places for your visors and face shields.
It shows how reliable the bag is because it already knows who will be using it and what they will need.
The Axo brand is simple. It thinks that bags should do what they are meant to do and do it well. So instead of lots of zippers and pockets, there is just one zipper that opens to a very large storage space. You could even try to put a whole biker’s helmet in there, and there would still be room. The Axo Commuter and the Axo brand are all about making it easier to store things.
The Axo Commuter backpack has a lot of cool colours and patterns. So, if you like bright colours and need a simple backpack, AXO is a no-brainer for under $20.
OGIO Renegade RSS
We’ve talked about OGIO again because you can’t stop talking about it. The Mach 5 looks like a beast and is light, which makes it a comfortable ride overall. The Renegade RSS, on the other hand, is more versatile and was made with workers who carry laptops in mind. If you need to work on the go and need to be in many places in one day with your laptop, your search ends at the Renegade RSS.
The backpack is big enough to hold the largest laptops on the market, which are no bigger than 17 inches, and it has special places for your laptop’s power cords and other accessories. OGIO calls this compartment the “crush-proof tech vault,” which makes it sound like one of the safest places to keep your gear. It is also made to fit as smoothly as possible against your back while riding, no matter how much it holds.
Mardingtop Tactical Backpacks Molle Hiking Daypack
People trust Mardingtop’s hiking backpacks, which is a big part of why it’s a good brand. This brand is the only one that can make a pack that is good for both biking and hiking. The 35-liter Molle Hiking Daypack is almost the perfect backpack because it can hold your laptop and a 2.5-liter water bladder.
The backpack is very light and made of molle webbing, which lets you carry small items when you want to go hiking. The webbing keeps things from falling off as you ride your bikes. Even the straps and back of the bag have extra padding to keep it from slipping.
Viking Moto Motorcycle Backpack
Viking is also one of the best backpack brands on the market because their packs are well-made and designed well. Night riders love this one from Viking because it has reflective piping that makes it easy to see at night. It’s one of the most durable backpacks on this list because it’s made of Cordura, a tough material.
It is a slightly smaller backpack that can hold laptops with a screen size of 15 inches or less. However, it is very strong and will last a long time. There is also a rain cover that you can take off for extra security, so you know that this backpack literally has your back no matter what.
Nelson Rigg Hurricane
Nelson Rig Hurricane backpacks should work well for you if you are a serious traveller. There are two sizes of these bags: 20 and 40 litres. The best thing about them is that they are waterproof.

Badass Motogear lives up to its name by making backpacks that are so cool, useful, and fast that they will blow your mind. This motorcycle travel backpack has reflective piping, adjustable shoulder straps, and, best of all, a mesh helmet bag that you can take off and put on by itself.

Harley Davidson Men’s Skull Backpack

Considering that you like heavy metal music, it is a very appealing choice. There are six different pockets, including one for a laptop and another for headphones. The foam-lined pockets make the bag very light, and you can be sure that it will go well with your sports bikes.
