Another vote for Kreiga R25 here. The quadlock strap system really unloads your shoulders and is far better than a regular backpack as far as comfort on the bike. I did 187 miles on Saturday (120 miles in the mountains) with the Kriega on without any soreness.
My best friend went for the Ogio Mach 5 (because it does look cool) and he said his shoulders were not happy after a longer ride. For me, it came down to aesthetics vs. function. The Kriega looks more purposeful and homely, but I was not convinced the aesthetics of the Ogio were worth the trade off.
I will note, the Ogio is more compartmentalized, so it's a good pack for commuting to work or school since you can easily organize it. The Kriega is one big compartment, so organization is less friendly, but you sure can stuff a lot into it when needed.
