Default backpack with helmet holder?

anybody know of any good backpacks with full face helmet holders? i had the icon urban tank bag and it was ok, but one of the clips broke so now its useless.

any suggestions? i just think it would be easier walking around campus with my helmet strapped to my backpack than carrying it around.

Cycle Gear has a few. Check their site... www.cyclegear.com

As for the Icon Urban Tank Bag... Email Icon & request repair/replacement. In my dealings w/ Icon, I've been well treated. I had an Icon Daytona jacket that broke off a liner-snap. I asked for a new replacement liner. They replaced the whole jacket!

I ride to school/work/weekend trips with an Ogio no drag.

A bit expensive if you pay full price. The one I got was KTM branded with some vinyl lettering, but nothing a quick yank couldn't take care of. I think I paid 75$ shipped.

I've got a 13" laptop, 2-3 textbooks, a charger, a water bottle, and a spare layer in case it gets cold, and the pack still feels good. It's also got all kinda of pockets (water , audio, shoes, and a place to put the helmet carrier when it's not in use.

Quick video review, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTpjm8SPHUI

Ride safe.

I looked at the tourmaster, the only thing I didn't like was the zippers on the outside of the shell. The no-name pack I had before my no-drag had external zippers that would come open bit by bit on long rides unless I used bread ties to link the two zippers. The cortech is a quality name, so I'd probably give it a try if I was shopping again.
