Ogio No Drag Mach 1, 3 and 5 Backpacks

Ogio No Drag Mach 1, 3 and 5 Backpacks

Backpacks can be an essential part of travelling or commuting on a bike, but most standard packs are not designed for that purpose. Motorcycle riders generally require a different set of features, and that is exactly the group that OGIO No Drag series caters to.

There are three backpacks in the OGIO No Drag line. They are the Mach 1, Mach 3, and Mach 5. All three share the same basic shape and use a streamlined, molded shell that reduces drag whether the pack is full or not. This is because the shell is rigid and holds its shape at speed. The finish of the shell is differs between the three bags, but all are a high quality and water resistant to help keep your belongings dry in case you encounter some wet weather. Other shared features include a pocket for a hydration bladder and a protective laptop compartment that fits most notebooks up to 15Ē. From here, features and storage space varies, with the largest and most fully featured being the top of the line Mach 5.

Ogio No Drag Mach 5


The Mach 5 has the most storage thanks to its zippered expansion gusset. When fully expanded it gives 1475 cubic inches of storage. Storage space is organized and well thought out, with individual pockets for a spare faceshield, electronics, small items, and even your shoes. The Mach 5 is a very comfortable backpack with its padded back panel and straps. The pads also help keep a channel open down the center of your back to allow airflow. The molded shell of the Mach 5 is finished in a carbon weave pattern that we think looks great, and the addition of reflective piping and logos helps keep make you more visible on the road.

Ogio No Drag Mach 3


The Mach 3 keeps nearly all of the same features as the Mach 5, but it does not have the expansion pocket, carbon weave finish, or the interior pouch for a spare shield. This means that it has 1125 cubic inches of storage, or about 350 cubic inches less than the expanded Mach 5. In place of the carbon weave look, the Mach 3ís outer shell is a smooth, flat black with synthetic fabric panels separating the sides from the center.

Ogio No Drag Mach 1


Coming in at the base of the No Drag series is the Mach 1. This bag is the same size as the Mach 3 at 1125 cubic inches, but it does lack some of the bells and whistles. The interior has the laptop and hydration pockets, but the rest is unlined. The exterior finish is more restrained as well, with a uniform, tough, black synthetic material covering the molded shell instead of the more elaborate finishes and reflective piping/logos of the other two. The back is doesnít have as much padding as the two higher models, but it is still a comfortable pack. The Mach 1 may lack some of the finish and features of the Mach 3 and 5, but it is still a solid choice that offers a lot of bang for the buck.

With their motorcycle specific features, sleek aerodynamics, and high quality OGIO construction, you really canít go wrong with any of the No Drag backpacks. Riders Discount has all three available to you (along with the entire OGIO motorsports line), so get in touch with TJ if you're interested. You can give him a call at 866.931.6644 ext. 817 or shoot him a PM through the forum.

The interior of the Mach 5 is shown here, with the shoe pouches and the visor pocket. Remove the visor pocket from the Mach 5 and you have the interior of the Mach 3. Going with the Mach 1 will still give you a versatile bag with the laptop storage, but no lining or shoe pockets.


Soft padding is found on the back of both the Mach 5 and 3, but not the Mach 1. This padding helps keep you comfortable and leaves a channel open in the center for air to flow through.


All three use the same molded, aerodynamic shell, with the only differences being the exterior finish. In this photo the Mach 5 is on the left, the Mach 1 in the center, and the Mach 3 is on the right.

Just got the No Drag 1 a couple weeks ago and I am extremely happy with it. I liked it the most since it isn't as flashy as the other two. It would be nice to have a finished interior though, not that it really matters that much. But for having the exterior I wanted and lowest price of the three, I can't complain.

Highly recommend

Those who say it cannot be done should not interfere with those who are doing it.

Two wheels: 2007 Graphite Daytona 675

I picked up the Mach3 at the start of the season. Fantastic bag. Only complaint is that it can be a little tricky loading it because of the hard molded outside shell is round, and you load it from the strap side of the bag. Because you load it from the rear (derp) and the top is round, it doesn't want to sit flat on a table as you load it up. In fact, it doesn't really have a flat spot on it except the part that goes up against your back, so it doesn't really "sit" very well when you take it off. Very small nit pick though.

My work laptop doesn't quite fit the sleeve either. My work laptop is a honker though. Big awkward pointy Dell brick of a POS that I hate. My 15" MacBook Pro works fantastic in it. In fact, it fits so well that I can only assume the laptop pocket was designed around it.

Great entry and exit ergonomics. It has a quick release buckle on the left hand shoulder strap so you can just sling it off when you get to wherever you land without having to contort like a crazy octopus trying to wriggle out of it. I don't know how they did it, but the arm straps manage to be both long enough to allow you to put it on easy even in gear, but also keep it snug against you, especially with the chest buckle on. I don't use the waist strap so I can't comment on that particular feature, but the chest one helps a lot with keeping the load from dragging your shoulders down. Instead the weight is supported by your body, not your shoulders.

The upper part is slim and doesn't get in the way of head checks when you are hunched over.

All the straps (besides the shoulders) are removable too, so if you don't want to use the waist or chest straps, you can just pull them off. All of the straps have elastic keepers to cinch up the extra slack too, so no more flapping straps smacking you in the helmet!

Speaking of helmets, it has this cool helmet leash too. I put it through the chin bar on my helmet (it has some kind of micro-suede texture cloth on the webbing), and put my gloves curled up inside. Snap the shield closed and it just stays right on your right hip. Not quite out of sight out of mind, but out of the way for sure, and frees up your hands for smoking/shopping/high fives/peace signs/groping/whatever.

Just a really well thought out backpack for motorcyclists.
