This page focuses on motorcycle luggage, backpacks, tank bag, tail bags, panniers. I prefer hard case backpacks and luggage because I think they look good. Besides they're still reasonably rare so you're unlikely to anyone else with one.


AXIO SWIFT 2.0 and FUSE 2008 hardcase backpack

These are the only two or three manufacturers of hardcase or hardshell backpacks I could find. They are AXIO and BOBLBEE and KATHMANDU.

AXIO backpacks

Now there is a difference between the two types they make. AXIO favours hard vinyl or fabric coated shell backpacks and proper hard plastic backpacks. Checkout their Fuse, Fuse 2008, Tekno and Rivet range for fabric coated packs. For hard plastic see their Swift 2.0 or Urban range of backpacks. They look and are well built I personally have the Fuse 2 and Fuse 2008. The range comes in airplane friendly size.

The Swift 2.0 range often comes in various limited editions and are genuine motorcycle backpacks. They release limited editions with the racing major sponsor logos of various motorcycle race teams. Currently the Repsol and Pramac schemes are available in most countries.

FUSE & FUSE 2008 51 x 36 x 22 cm (Linear 109cm) (20.1x14.2x8.7 Inches) 1.8Kg
Swift 2.0 51 x 35.6 x 24.1 cm (Linear 110.7cm) (20.1x14x9.5 Inches) 1.8Kg

Boblbe-e backpacks

Boblbe-e makes hard plastic cases that are really good too but they are more for outdoor sports. They say that some models are for motorcycle riders specifically the Megalopolis Aero range of backpacks but they aren't as aerodynamic as the AXIOs. Boblbe-e have just replaced the former Executive, Spark and Sport model's loose top cover for something a bit more solid. Nevertheless I love the Megalopolis Aero 'Darth' version!



Doblbe-e Megalopolis and Amphib

Seeing the Boblbee in the shops reveals good construction quality but it still looks 'extreme sports' than general motorcycle since the lid is not weather proof or even close to dust resistance.

I didn't get a chance to see the new Boblbee Amphib backpack range because these are clearly the most weather resistance out of all the ones I've seen. However if you use one of these on a motorcycle you'll find the flapping bits on the pack annoying. There are plenty of models to choose from but finding a retailer could prove difficult in some countries.

Kathmandu

This brand isn't too well known just yet (outside Australia and New Zealand) and they had one hardcase item worth having a look at (2008). It is not a backpack more a small satchel. It's called the Kathmandu Transit Case.



Black or Blue 400D Ballistics nylon - 3L 420gm

For me? Admittedly a Christmas present to myself. I chose the AXIO Fuse 2008 in black and the Transit Pack. Both look good and the compartments are well designed and easy to access. It doesn't have bits that flap in the wind, resists dust and looks good at the same time.
