I've got the Ogio Mach 5 and I really like it so far. It's plenty big for shoes, gloves, change of clothes, etc. It has lots of compartments to keep your stuff organized. It also has a place to keep an extra face shield. Once you get the straps adjusted it sits nicely on your back so that it doesn't add any strain to your shoulders.

Check out the Rider's Discount section of the forum. They had an incredible deal on the Mach 3 and 5 not that long ago. They were the cheapest I could find by a considerable margin.

Not sure what your budget is... but if you like the "urban warrior"/military look, check out the FAST Pack or FAST Pack Litespeed by Triple Aught Design. I use the Litespeed as my everyday pack, it's with me everywhere I go. Made from Cordura (tough as nails in case of fall) and water resistant. Only issue is price, but I'd recommend anything from this company:

I have the older version Ogio no drag backpack. I would suggest this pack. I got stuck riding in the rain for an hour and everything in the bag was dry; on the other hand I and everything I was wearing was soaked. I would imagine the newer Ogio packs hold up just as well. The only negative aspect to the pack is that the outside of the bag was soaked due to the fact it is a nylon type of material. The inner portion of the bag has a water repellant liner to keep everything dry.

Triple Aught Design looks like a little costly to me. Thanks for the suggestion though. I was thinking about either an Oakley or Ogio. Will let u guys know if anything comes up. Thanks again!

I have used a Kriegga R-30 as my everyday pack for almost 2 years, i have to say the quality is amazing, i have no complains on the zippers, mesh panel or anything else, one big thing for me is that you can put Back protection right on the backpack main compartment, i like that.
Another big thing is that it carries 30L, which is a LOT of stuff, and the fact that it is waterproof is simply amazing, i live in Costa Rica and you can get heavy rain any day at any moment!
I can only speak of good things about the Kriegga, the build quality is simply stunning!, and the fit is incredible, it puts the pressure on the chest and not the shoulders, which is a good thing.

Not wanting a messenger bag?

I got sick of trying to fit everything into a backpack and went to a messenger because of the.. Well they're designed for bikes and motorcycles, and latch in two places to prevent swivel, but also sit at an angle on your back, giving you more packing width.

I use the Chrome mid sized messenger..
It has a full seatbelt latch, plus a secondary under the arm fastener.

I carry a laptop, change of pants, bike lock/chain, bike cover.. Various other things, and can just about fit a pair of shoes in there too..

It's completely water proof. I've used it as an umbrella here in the more violent Seattle cloud bursts. It doesn't have the type of waxed coating that wears through. it's solid military strength tarp material.. Reflective along the stitching.. When they go on sale they are a steal.

It would take a lot to steer me away from this brand at this point.
