Like most companies, OGIO was established to solve a problem. Athlete and sports enthusiast Michael J. Pratt needed a tote bag to carry his assorted gear without creating a jumbled mess. Organization was important to Pratt, so he created a tote that offered just that and gave his company a name reminiscent of its creation. Pratt’s company “Our Gear is Organized,” or OGIO for short, took off from there, and has been creating organized, problem solving bags ever since.
Now a part of Callaway Golf, OGIO has branched out to manufacture bags of all sizes and styles for various sports, one of which being motorcycling. With motocross gear bags and goggle cases, general riding backpacks and vests, along with casual purses and backpacks, OGIO has established themselves as a reliable and knowledgeable manufacturer. Their bags offer clever storage solutions for all the things riders take with them – boots, helmets, goggles, jerseys, pants, jackets, socks, tear-offs, hydration, etc. - fitting them safely, securely, and comfortably.
Ingenuity and innovation are the standard for OGIO, a unique trait that is reflected in every bag that leaves their warehouse. For durable construction, reliable performance, and life-changing conveniences, shop OGIO gear backs, riding backpacks, and more at RMATVMC.com.

I've had this bag for a month, compared to the equivelent USWE model, it has more foam padding that makes it a bit heavier but not much. It is very comfortable and well fitted on a body protecter if you use one. It is very easy to adjust the straps. The Ogio does have numerous pockets including a soft lining for a cellphone and many other for tools, papers and more, there is oom for basic tools, replacement tube and a pump. It gets very tight if you want to add more stuff but I guess that most of the users want a small bag like this because they prefer it that way. The front outer pocket is intended and can fitted with a helmet which is a bit odd especially for dirtbike riders but you can use it for other stuff you might want to add. The main issue i've had is the hydration pack lock pins design. After only a month of use (maybe 4-5 times) the pins just snap and the water bag is useless on spot. I did talk to other people in my country who had the same issue and they all had the same issue and contacted Ogio sellers to get a new hydration pack. I replaced it as well under warrenty, sold the bag to some guy who had the pins snapped as well...... If you want a cheaper version of the USWE bags, and don't care about the hydration pack issue, it is a good option. Otherwise, I would go and buy other bags.Read All Reviews

I've had this vest for at least three or four years now and it's a huge improvement over any kind of backpack. The weight of it is well balanced on you and it seems to rest on your hips. No stress on the shoulders at all. It sits fine on top of my neck brace and body armor. As it's aged and has been heavily used - a few concerns have come up. First - the rubber band that holds up the bladder in the back pocket finally broke about a year ago - so as the bladder empties - it just collapses in the pocket. When that happens - it seems like the bladder leaks and the bottom of the vest always seems to be wet. Second - yesterday I had a significant failure. I carry my tool pouch in the big front pocket on the right side. It's fairly heavy but not bad and there is plenty of room in that pocket for it. I ended up throwing my phone in that pocket as well since there was plenty of room for it with easy access to it to take pictures. About 15 miles into our ride we took a break and I looked down and the entire pocket had ripped itself off of the vest completely except for the very bottom. My phone and tool pouch were just hanging there. I'm amazed I didn't lose my phone. It appears that the stitching just failed and it came off as the material isn't ripped. Very scary. This vest has served me well but I think I'm going to try the Klim vest next. When I bought this I didn't see any alternatives and me and my riding buddies all have this one. Now I've got some options. Since this one has deteriorated so badly and I don't trust it - I'm going to try something different.Read All Reviews
