Kriega Kube Pocket
The R3 may be better...
I recommend this item because it does what it says. I say the R3 may be better because it does more.
Build quality of the Kube is very good. Looks cool on my R25 and comes in handy for things you need handy like your phone or wallet or keys when jacket pocket zippers get too clumsy to get into with gloves on.
Much of the reviews I read about the Kube mentioned it being a bit too small. This is true. My Galaxy S3 is about as long but wider and thicker (with an extended battery) than an iPhone and it fit snugly along with my wallet. I believe switching over to a money clip with 1 or 2 credit cards should be much better.
As far as the comparison to the R3, I just ordered one and I feel this waist pack will do a better job at securing my wallet, phone, charger, paperwork, a GoPro camera, and a can of dip... in a waterproof environment to boot!
I still like my small Kube though. It is versatile, I can loop it on my belt while not riding or attach it to my R3 or R25 when I do ride or travel. It's all good!

great add-on for any backpack
I recently bought a R25, my old backback had a pocket like this, so I was already use to having my work badge, or cell phone there with easy access.
Not gona lie this is bigger than expected, I can fit my wallet, work badge and cell phone and still have some room left.
Fitting on the backback its a little weird, if you use the higher upper shoulder strap it will hit your helmet/face, lower part of the strap its weird and it doesnt feel right.
I use mine right in the middle between the two chest locking mechanism and it works great, it does hit my helmet, and its almost in the same position as my previous backpack.
I would recommend this if you need a little bit of extra space and need to access something quickly.

Nice little add-on for holding essentials
Fits my 5" phone, card holder wallet, cash and keys. It probably won't work too well if you have a fat wallet though. I'm curious why some other reviewers say they can't fit an iPhone, which is markedly smaller than mine. It's a great add-on to my waistpack so I don't have to unfurl the whole thing when I'm at the gas station.

A must have to complete your Kriega Pack
This is a must have for your Kriega backpack. It fits a smart phone exceptionally well if you have one that is smaller than a 4.5" screen. I only wish it this cube was a little wider to accommodate average sized wallets. You may have to find a card case to use instead.

Kriega loyalists only
This tiny case is almost more trouble than its worth. Hard to zip, hard to add onto a Kriega pack in a location where it is accessible but doesn't get in the way, and almost too small to be of use for anything except keys (which can just as easily be clipped on the main pack). Tough and durable, however.

Great addition to Kriega bag
Would recommend to anyone with a kriega bag. Fits a cellphone with a case (iphone, in my instance) and a pack of smokes with room to spare!

Great idea, needs improvement
I got the Kube based on other reviews. It is definitely helpful to have something to put your keys & wallet in while stopping by a gas station. I wish it was wider by a 1/4 to 1/2 inch. It was not designed for an i-phone in a case (would not fit at all) nor for a standard wallet (I BARELY could get the kube zipped with the wallet inside). I also had to experiment as of to where to attach it to my R25. I found that attaching to the left side-strap prevented me from looking over my shoulder to switch lanes. Not good. However, the right side leaves the zipper either upside down or to the outside (depending on how you velcro), which is awkward. Still helpful even if not wholly functional. Should be better designed for the price.

Does the job I wanted it for
I got the Kube to have a pocket for my wallet that was easy to reach when I needed to swipe a card to get into a parking garage. It's a little bulky but works just fine for what I wanted out of it. If I could add one feature, it'd be a small clip or something on the inside to attach keys to. 25$ is a little more than I wanted to pay for it but I'm sure it'll prove its worth in the long run. I put it on my R20 bag by the way.
