Might be perfect for rain gear and cover. I currently use a cycleguys fastpack on my 04 Ninja 250 to hold all my rain gear and bike cover, and this looks about the same size.

The tail bag i had for my least bike was smaller than this one it all depends on what your buying it for. Mine was just to get my lunch to work.

I prefer a magnetic tank bag. Don't really need storage in the tail and every time I use a tail bag it gets annoying swinging my leg over.

Im new to riding bike, but eventually i would like to ride to uni (takes about 45 min to drive). Would you recommend me getting one of these tail bags, or wearing a backpack will be alright? My bag is usually heavy though, carrying my laptop, and textbooks and all.

What would you guys recommend?

Tank bag. Within your reach at stoplights and such, and you would get a magnetic one that is incredibly easy to take off

I commute with a laptop backpack at the moment and it seems to do the trick but it feels uncomfortable when leaning into corners and its a real bitch to put on and take off with a textile jacket on. Especially for the quick stops to grab a drink etc.

Well a rear trunk may be up your ally then lol but check demention because your laptop and books may not fit. I can remember atm, but I think I have seen some backpack size tank bags, they remove to actually be a backpack, so your can stick it on the tank for your ride, then take it off and wear it when you get there.
