Fubar et al,

I use a Jansport standard backpack in winter to transport my stuff to work. Pros of this pack:

-- lots of room
-- comfortable to wear (in winter)
-- rugged (it is many years old)

Jansport cons:

-- I boil in summer with this thing glued to my back
-- no partitions inside to organize my stuff
-- no easy way to transport a tennis racquet
-- no easy access if I need something while riding

I'm intrigued by the Superbike pack, especially b/c the design keeps the pack off my back. Questions on this and similar packs:

--Does this technology really work in extreme heat, i.e. will the pack really stay off my back when it's loaded?
--Are there any partitions inside to organize stuff
-- Can the superbike be loaded with roughly same amount of stuff as the standard Jansport pack?
--Any way to jam a tennis racquet in there?
