Ya I was riding last summer with a small Camelbak and my back was always soaked even after shorter 6 mile or less rides. But North Face advertises that it has some back sweat saver technology. It's like a vent or something, but if I get the pack and it turns out to ineffective I'll just pack a shirt to change into.

I was considering that, but then I realized that I'm commuting to school so it's not exactly a place to be leaving panniers on my bike.

Thanks to everyone that replied as well. I decided to get the Solaris 35
Many Panniers come with a shoulder strap and a means of hooking the pannier set together. Pull them off the bike, clip them together, hook on the shoulder stap and your good to go!
