I commute with a backpack...It is an older Suzuki one. has a chest strap and has a pouch that will strap in a helmet. I actually loosen the shoulder straps enough so it DOES rest on the pass seat. that helps a ton for weight on your back. BTW - my commute is 65 miles round trip, all highway.
Cooler months -
A*'s S-MX 1 boots
Joe Rocket textile windproof pants (forgot the name)
Joe Rocket textile jacket (hemp I think)
Suomy Extreme helmet
some no name thick leather gloves with carbon/kevlar knuckle/wrist protection
under 30*s - under armour cold gear top and leggings
Same a*'s boots
Joe rocket mesh jacket
Joe Rocket mesh pants
Bell Star helmet
I get into my office, strip the jacket, pants and boots and do my business....Joe Rocket actually makes the product big enough to actually call it 'over-wear'...
Edit - I ride until the first salting of the roads...then she goes into hibernation until spring time...I try to wait until the sweepers come out, but it doesn't always happen...
