1. A third of the cost of the Ogio “Mach” series.
2. Almost identical to the Ogio (you’ll never have the “Is that a knock-off Ogio backpack?” conversation...unless you’re confronted by another rider who has a legit Ogio, which, no one would like that person anyway, so who cares).
1. Foul smell (which is very easily dealt with by drowning the bag in a strong deodorizer and air drying for a day or two)
2. Shoulder strap quality is a bit inferior (in terms of comfortability)
Overall, I think this is an awesome alternative to the original: I’d buy it again if anything happens to it. While the internal materials feel a tad cheap, this bag is a third of the cost of the Ogio (the quality of the aforementioned materials, however, is not relative to the cost - you get more than what you pay for, in my opinion). And if it isn’t obvious, this isn’t real carbon fiber, for anyone wondering...
