It has been more than 8 months since I purchased it. Nothing wrong so far. I don't use it everyday though. I took pretty long trips (Los angeles to San Francisco, Los Angeles to Joshua Tree etc..) and it held up really well.

I have the Ogio Mach 5. I use it everyday for work, riding or not. The only downside is the holder for the extra faceshield was in the way, I went and cut it out and no problems since.

+1 anything by Kriega.

Fantastic packs, really comfortable to carry as it is all in the chest and not shoulders, so the pack doesn't move around.

Using my trusty Wenger (SwissGear) Pegasus. holds a 17" gaming laptop, my shoes, a change of clothes, lunch, along with my stethoscope and misc. medical gear & supplies.

I like it because it was affordable, stands up when you set it down, and has held up for a solid 5 years of nearly daily use and still looks brand new. When it gets dirty I just throw it in the washer and with some Nikwax to keep it waterproof. I keep thinking about buying a fancy purpose built "motorcycle backpack" but I don't really have the need right now as long as this bag keeps holding up...

I can't comment on the comfort, (because I still haven't ridden my pani yet) but I do have the Mach 3.
the construction looks good, I don't see any reason why the stitching would come apart. I don't think I would use the shoe holders, but its wide enough to throw a face shield across the bottom safely. I would be using mine for commuting to work so I would have no more than second face shield, lunch and maybe gym clothes.

I'm 5'8" 250 lbs (I lift) and my only gripe was that the waist strap snaps at the side instead of the middle. This is smart for those not wanting to scratch their tanks with the buckle, but horrible for big guys like me who can't reach that far around themselves, especially with a jacket on. Luckily, the two straps (chest/waist) are removable.

I use the Ogio Mach 5, pricey but it looks looks awesome and fits very well. The hardshell is really useful and I love the quick release shoulder straps. Makes it so much easier to get on and off when wearing a jacket and helmet.

One more vote for the Kriega R25. Or anything by Kriega, really.

Riding with this pack changed my perspective on gear dramatically. It's the most comfortable bag I've ever come across, even after a couple hundred miles.

It also feels like an extra layer of protection. When I ride without it, I get a weird feeling like I've forgotten to put my seatbelt on.
