Default Backpacks?

I recently started commuting to work on my bike and loving every minute of it! The only downside is that I bring lunch to work. I think a backpack would be the best solution for me. I was thinking of picking up the Icon Squad II Backpack.

Has anyone used this backpack or any other backpack?

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

any good water-resistant hiking 1500-1800cc back pack. enough to hold lunch shoes or another crap you need but still small enough to be comfortable. ive had north face and mountain hardware and love them both for riding

Thanks for the info everyone. I got an EMS backpack with straps to compress it when it has less gear in it. So far it has been good, and EMS has a good return policy if it does not work out.
I'll be starting school soon so I got one that can fit a laptop too!

You got one you're happy with; great!
My 'motorcycle' backpack is just a second-hand store school-type backpack. Works fine. I don't personally care for wearing a backpack on the bike now that I've moved to a very hot place, nor in any climate where I'm on the bike for any appreciable amount of time. Still, any old thing will actually work just fine.

Didn't go nuts on a backpack either. Just grabbed a water resistant one with a laptop compartment. Works fine

I have an Ogio Stealth No Drag or whatever the hell its called.

About 120 bucks, but it has no straps that flap around, has plenty of room so you can have your head back and not touch the bag, sits against your body, has nice ventilation padding around the back so it moves a little air and opens from the inside.

It also has a bag type bungee deal that comes off the bottom so you can strap your helmet to the back of it without it taking up room in the actual backpack.
