I just ordered it at XLMoto Belgium. It is branded Course .
It cost me 10 + shipping 8.
So I am curious regarding quality and usability.
It is cheap



I got one some time ago (in  the UK) when it was on offer at 10.  I've worn it a couple of times on long'ish journeys (120 - 180 miles).  It is comfortable to wear and the aerodynamic profile DOES seem to have an impact as it doesn't seem to drag heavily on you while on the move.  The straps are a bit narrow, especially the waist strap, and the padding isn't the best but trhat doesn't affect overall comfort or stability.

Capacity is maybe a bit lower than is intimated - over here at least - but certainly adequate for relatively short trips, a couple of days max., I'd suggest.

Probably the single most noticeable downside is the lack of compartments so pretty much everything is lumped in together.

Other than that it's not a bad bit of kit and is a bargain when it's on offer cheap from XL Moto.  So far, so good and a thumbs up from me, albeit with the caveats above and durability unknown!


Regards,

Adie

It arrived, and yes, the downside is indeed the lack of compartiments.
I will give it a try to use it as a daily tool for the PC , some paperwork and my lunchbox.
Not sure if it will be the right tool but hey, for the price it is more then one can expect, so I will surely use it on the street triple.
Glad to have it.

So , I found an alternative use for this cheap backpack, while commuting.
With the use of a cheap (spider) cargo net , I fix it behind me. And guess what, I like the look on the bike and it gives me some backsupport and it looks aerodynamic  :001: and no more hassle with things on my back while riding to work.

It sits over the light, but doesn't cover it in any way. I have a standard triumph rear grapbar and that helps to support it of course:
