Hi Everyone,
I'm just going to buy the backpack for my motorcycle to carry some of my stuff Including a 15" Macbook and some wires, an external hard disk, and some gym stuff during riding the motorcycle. I usually ride around 40 to 45 Km daily.
I'm a little confused in finding the best one, I want the bag which will be better in quality and capacity but light on my pocket, I've a budget of 100$, can you please let me know better option according to your experience.
I've some options in my consideration:
MOTORCYCLE BACKPACK Waterproof Bag Helmet Hard Shell Carbon Fiber JFG RACING
Motorcycle Backpack Waterproof Hard Shell Men Backpack Carbon Fiber Hardshell
Viking Medium Black Street/Sportbike Backpack
Motorcycle Backpack Carbon Fiber Hard Shell Turtle Bags Waterproof Large Capacity Cycling Helmet Storage Stealth Black
Motorcycle Hard Case Bag Cycling Backpack Motorcycle Carbon Fiber Racing Backpack Waterproof Luggage Bags

Please let me know if you have any suggestions

If you are only riding 40-50 kms per day, then just about any back pack will suit your needs. TJ Max usually has quite a selection of name brand school type packs for a good price. May be a place to start looking.
As soon as you go to "motorcycle backpack" brands, the price will go up significantly.

When you go looking, wear your riding jacket so you will be able to tell how it fits.

Be careful though with any device with a lithium ion battery in side and you have it on your body, rucksack or pocket on your bike, if it ever got punctured you in for a very warm time, I know it will probably never happen, but there is a slim chance still.

Back packs get very heavy and uncomfortable, No matter how far you ride,
This is an Rjays Rack pack on mine, Its years old,
It carrys every thing I need, When I go camping it fits a two man tent in it with poles,.
Small gas stove, Pots and utensils, Thermos for milk, Wet Gear, Etc Etc,
Its even had my PC in it when I took it for repairs,
It fits two helmets in it when fully extended,
Think long term, You will need a bigger bag on the back sooner or later,

I was always advised NOT to ride with a backpack on.
In the event you ever come off the bike - the backpack will try to turn you on to your front.
I'll echo Deano re safety… instead pop a Givi monorack on the back with a Givi E52 Maxia top box. Pop any backpack into the top box. Expensive solution but I've never regretted doing it (bar regretting not doing it sooner).

I already have this tail bag on my motorcycle tail I use it when I need to carry some more stuff with me although it's very easy to install and remove but it couldn't be that handy as compared to a backpack that's why I'm looking for a full fledge one for my daily commute.

I always have this Taichi backpack when I ride, not just because I'm a bit of a weeb :D but it's a nice spacey bag, 25L I think and it's top loading, you open it with a single click and throw things in. Previous Alpinestars backpacks I had, with zippers, started to annoy me a bit.

On this photo I'm carrying a long sleeve shirt, camera, probably some drinks, presents for my nephew, window wipes and a bike cover on the bottom.
