I don't think a real need really exists to buy a backpack designed by motorcycle gear makes.
If you carry a lot of stuff, or heavy stuff, do make sure to get a backpack with both a chest strap and a lap belt. If you don't have these features, the backpack will wiggle around at most inopportune time, like when you're leaning in a turn, or during a slow maneuver in a parking lot.
I have a bright yellow Northface backpack. Wasn't too expensive, and does its job quite well. However, I don't think it's water resistant.
