Klim Krew Pak
great pack on and off the bike
first of all, I'm about 5'11" 150lbs, and the way this pack(as well as most klim gear) is made, I have the shoulder straps to their tightest position and wouldn't mind an extra half inch or so for when I don't have my riding jacket on. that being said, i really like this pack, the fact that it came with the water bladder and has the volume that it does made it a great buy. Its comfortable with good back support and sternum and waste straps. I always have it while riding and it makes a pretty good day pack for hiking. The shovel pocket and tool kit are really appreciated, i was able to fit all tools but my hand pump in it. It has been very versatile and has taken a bit of a beating without any problems. choose Klim.

Need a week long pack? Your search is over
I recently returned from a 1400 mile on my FZ8, went for a fun little cruise along the shores of Lake Superior. I rode through everything from 90 degree heat to 50 degrees and rain. This pack was FANTASTIC!
Before I purchased the pack I messaged Klim Customer service for some dimensions on capacity. I love Klim products, and own a few other items. I feel that it's good to note capacity if you're after a pack for a specific purpose like me.
The 3L's of water is in a separate rear compartment, that actually makes the water mold slightly to your back, so it's not bulky and uncomfortable. The hose quick releases from the bag so you don't need to constantly reroute the hose every time you refill. The top of the bag opens wide, and you can drop in a liter of water on the go in just a few seconds. The hose had a better nozzle than a camel pack, and didn't leak all over the place, like a CP usually does. The bag also flips inside out for easy cleaning.
The bags overall storage capacity is broken up into 3 compartments and a goggle storage. In the main compartment I was able to fit two pairs of Carhartts, 3 shirts, a dress shirt, a pair of shorts, and my daily vitamins, there was still room for easily another pair of pants and shirt. The mid compartment had a 5 day supply of skippies and socks. The front compartment held all my phone cords, a flashlight, tablet, and toiletries. The goggle pouch held a pair of Oakleys in their hard case, and my spare glasses. I even managed to throw a pair of flip flops by the tool bag and secure them in for my time at the beach.
Excellent bag, I will be multi-purposing this bag, so I can't wait to see how well it works on the sled.

Perfect Moto/Photo Pack
I needed a pack that allowed me to securely carry my Sony a6000 and Zeiss 16-70mm lens, plus other gear. Finally, after looking at BH, Zappos, REI, etc. I found it here! Duh, should have started my search at Revzilla. Could not be happier with my purchase!

Great Pack but Small
This pack has great features like the tool bag, shovel compartment, pole attachment and the water reservoir. Pack is made of durable KLIM material so you know if holds up. Did a 500 mile Dual Sport trip on it and had no complaints with comfort and durability. Multiple pockets to store your things like goggle section, the material is nice and soft and wont scratch the lens. There is a perfect compartment on the waist strap for your wallet and is easily accessible. Helps when filling up for gas on long trips.
My only complaint is the actual stuff sack is smaller than anticipated. I wanted this pack to hold my water, some tools and a weekends worth of clothes and a pair of sandals. I have a hard time just stuffing one nights work of clothes.
Overal, the pack is great if you dont plan on putting to many things in the main stuff sack. Everything else is great.

Better than advertised!
I have been riding with a standard backpack and after using this backpack what a difference. Airflow is fantastic and features are great. Plenty of room and mini storage pockets. This was definately designed by someone that rides. Best part is it fits great over my riding jacket like a glove.. Well worth the money. Only drawback is it doesn't come with a waterproof cover. Great bag though.

Dual sport riders must have!
I bought this specifically to replace my Camelback, which was still nice to use.....but this is even better! I'm able to carry a lot of stuff that I use to carry on my bike; tools, tube, air compressor, medical pack, and a few other items w/o getting too heavy. You just need to keep in mind of what you'd rather carry ON you......instead of your bike in case you ever get seperated from it.

The backpack is great, fits good and has a lot of adjustments to make sure it fits, across the chest over the arm. Lots of storage, haven't used the water tube yet put it looks functional and easy to use. A bit expensive but well made.

Solid Pack with Many Uses
- 3-liter fluid capacity with the best fill up design
- Nice tool pouch
- Fairly low profile, doesn't flap around on bike
- Seems well-made
- Comfortable and adjustable, forgot it was there
- Can actually feel air moving across my back through the air channels
- Roomy with lots of pockets
- Multipurpose - great for the motorcycle, snowboard, bicycle and hiking.
- No helmet sling
- Wish the mouthpiece to the hydropack could zip away completely out of site to keep it clean from bug impacts, mud and dirt.
- Would like for the main pouch to be waterproof.
