Kriega R20 Backpack

The Kriega R20 motorcycle backpack has been designed specifically as an ‘active’ riding pack with Kriega's unique QUADLOC-lite harness system. The harness is angled away from underarms for total freedom of movement and once set, the pack is exceptionally convenient to use with none of the harness re-adjustment necessary on conventional harness systems.

The size adjustable harness allows the backpack position to be moved up or down to produce the best possible fit. The Kriega R20 can be worn with or without a waist strap. The waist strap is not really necessary for street riding

  • Main compartment with YKK water-resistant zip
  • Side access pocket with YKK water-resistant zip
  • Internal hydration sleeve with compression (bladder sold separately)
  • Internal zipped mesh-pocket
  • SUPERSPACE: 5mm airspace back.
  • YKK water-resistant zips
  • HYPALON: Abrasion resistent re-enforcement
  • Scholler Dynatech With integrated 3M scotchlite
  • 420 D nylon RipStop: lightweight yet extremely strong

  • Unique QUADLOC harness: adjustable back length and total arm freedom
  • Side access pocket

Kriega R20 Backpack 4.7 5 90 90
Great backpack for riding; A little pricey though. This bag is nicely constructed and has style. It is also very easy to put on/take off when wearing a leather jacket. I found the fit to be very comfortable and as mentioned in many of the reviews, the weight is not on the shoulders, which makes for a very comfortable fit. April 14, 2014
Awesome rider's backpack Granted I've only used it a couple times on short commutes to work, this thing is awesome. Great off loading and a true rider's backpack! A well thought out piece. No worrying about dangling straps, no worries about backs that ride up on ya or shift around while iding. This thing is planted. In terms of space it's been fine for me. I'm really just stuffing a lunch bag in there and maybe a pair of sneaker and this pack accommodated the items without any issue. I also love the sealed around the zipper. I mean the backpack isn't made to be waterproof but it sure gives you the piece of mind that if you did run into some rain, that you'd buy yourself a little time. I chose to go with the older R20 as opposed to the R25 simply because of price. Once again another great product carried by Revzilla! April 14, 2014
A great everyday pack. I absolutely love this backpack!. The harness system is probably the best out there. Unlike other backpacks, the Kriega doesn't restrict my movement and most of the weight is on your chest. I have ridden long distances with the backpack full of stuff and had zero fatigue. It was like the backpack wasn't even there. It is easy to put on and take off while wearing a jacket with armor in. Although not fully waterproof, I have ridden with it in light showers and even after ~30 minutes it didn't get soaked through. The only cons I can think of with this backpack is the price compared to other competitors and the harness system is kind of wonky when off the bike and walking around and not clipped in. But really, that wasn't what it was designed for. If you are looking for a riding pack, definitely pick this one up. April 13, 2014
Extremely well made, with all the features I need. As a female 5'4" motorcycle rider, I'm thrilled with this extremely well made and well thought out motorcycle backpack. It's very comfortable, and is easy to get on and off with a riding jacket. I really like the cinch down ability on this backpack, so when I'm carrying less in it, it's contoured to my body. I will definately purchase more Kriega products in the future! April 7, 2014
Great pack for commuting Love this pack...perfect for putting lunch bag and large plastic water bottle, plus wet suit in for my commute to/from work in Hawaii. Outside storage pocket items "can" get wet if you are caught in a heave downpour, but other than that I have no complaints. The zippers are very well sealed, and no problem after using for several months. Highly recommend this, or a larger Kriega if you need more storage space. April 6, 2014
Sweet, Sweet Backpack I have been using this backpack for at least a month now so I am pretty informed. This backpack is . . . can't even really describe it. It's just awesome! Look, functionality, space, durability, and practicality, this backpack has it all. This backpack has a subtle classy look so that's a bonus. What is said about how this pack release stress on your shoulder is true, as well as it doesn't move around too much while turning. The space is bigger than I thought. An easy comparison is this backpack can fit, at least, 8 70-pages normal notebook without trouble. The water-resistant zipper is a blessing and a half! Can't tell you how many times it saved the content I have inside. Works better in heavy rain than I thought. The problems I have: (1)The price, as awesome as it is, this backpack doesn't worth $139. Could certainly be much cheaper I think. (2) Adjusting the "dots" is a workout in itself. Moving from two dots to three dots is easy, but when you want to move from two dots to one dot, it gets more arduous then it should. Other than those two problems, this backpack is simply great! If you can afford it, buy it, you won't regret it. April 5, 2014
Incredibly comfortable Everything you see on the video is exactly what you get. The backpack has great durable materials and is amazingly comfortable. When you ride, you forget you´re wearing a backpack thanks to the weight transfer from your shoulder to your sternum. A must for everyday commuting. March 31, 2014
Kriega R20 - Excellent An excellent motorcycle-specific backpack. As other reviewers have mentioned, it fits so well you can hardly tell it's there. Easy to adjust and carries a suitable amount of gear. Big enough to carry my laptop (9.5" x 14") as well as a few other items. March 31, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
William S: I have many backpacks, but not one specifically designed for riding - this hopefully will be just the right size! Apr 14, 2014
Sammy A: I needed a much smaller every day commuting bag. I already have the R35 which is an awesome pack but don't need that much space everyday. I love the Kriega products they are the best in the market, and they are truly riders bags. Apr 3, 2014
Michael R: Recommended Apr 2, 2014
Anthony H: I have read nothing but great things about Kriega products. I was able to physically handle a R25, but it seemed a little too bulky for what I was planning on using the pack for. I opted for the R20 as my commuter bag and to pack stuff for day or weekend trips. Apr 1, 2014
Schuyler S: Big (enough) backpack that feels good on the back and can handle the elements. Plus, it looks nice! Mar 31, 2014
David M: Great reviews. Mar 28, 2014
Scott F: Worked great. Comfortable. Holds a lot of stuff. Water is easy to refill and clean. Like being able to cinch down the sides real good to keep it from flopping around. Mar 27, 2014
Maurice V: It seems like it will hold everything I need it to...... All the reviews that I read were positive..... Mar 26, 2014
Bradley M: Great reviews and helpful video on the product Mar 20, 2014
Kirk S: Quality low profile construction with reflective material needed for commute. Mar 14, 2014
Richard W: Quality, light weight and size for commuting. I also have an older r35. Mar 13, 2014
Rodrigo M: Great reviews and pretty clear and explanatory video Mar 13, 2014
Isaac T: This bag seems to have perfect the perfect balance for what I need: convenience for commuting plus functionality for longer weekend trips. Plus I'm tired of my shoulders hurting. Will be getting the US-30 once I have the money. Feb 21, 2014
Kevin R: The revzilla gear geeks helped me pick this item and the reviews looked good. I hope it works out! Feb 20, 2014
Robert K: I chose a Kreiga R20 backpack because of the quick disconnect feature on the harness. Feb 17, 2014
Tony B: Looked like the best solution on the market. I was right, for me, the BEST backpack I have ever had! Feb 7, 2014
Anthony B: I unfortunately had to return my Icon Mil-Spec Squad3 backpack. Icon and Revzilla stood behind the product and refunded my money for that bag. I decided to go with one of the top reviewed bags instead, and the Kriega R20 fell into that category. It's a bit of a price jump, but with a 10 year warranty, I can ride confidently knowing my stuff is protected, and the stuff protecting my stuff is protected. Jan 7, 2014
Paul B: I needed a replacement for my MULE Camelbak. Being a big guy, the Camelbak was too small and dug into my shoulders. Also, the MULE didn't have much cargo capacity,especially when the bladder was full. The R20 is expensive, but the quality is unmatched. The shoulder strap design eliminates any shoulder digging and is easy to get in and out of. I've mounted my leatherman and my camera on each strap for easy access. If you want to buy only one hydration backpack, this is it. Dec 9, 2013
Kyle J: The reviews are good, and a friend recommended highly. Dec 3, 2013
Alexander H: I need a riding backpack, and after research and watching/reading reviews, it was easy to come to this conclusion. Thanks revzilla Oct 16, 2013
Ray M: Upgraded from the Icon MilSpec 3 rider pack. This one is much larger...the Icon one is great, but doesn't have a lot of room for stuff (lunch box, coffee thermos, water bottle). Love them both though. Oct 13, 2013
Henry C: It appeared to have plenty of storage, not too much worse than the R25, however it looks significantly less bulky with a lighter strapping system that will allow it to function as a casual backpack for school as well as a riding pack. Sep 14, 2013
Lee X: Unique buckling system in the front that takes the weight off the shoulders as well as the removable waist buckle. Aug 19, 2013
Alexander U: WOWZERS! Not only is this my fav moto purchase ever it may very well be my fav purchase all time of any kind. After what was hours of research I came to the conclussion Kriega was the way to go and the R20 fit my specific everyday sport riding needs. This pack gets excellent marks all around, I really can't ding it for much besides interior color (Black) Sits off your shoulders, feels great over gear or not. This pack is total sploosh tons of compliments really can't stop telling people about it Aug 14, 2013
Paul V asked: I have the US-20 tailpack and was wondering whether that can be attached to the R-20? Bascially turning into one bag and not having to carry a tailpack and backpack. I see that you can easily attach the US-10. Jan 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (2) No (0)
John S: I have both the r20 tail pack and the back pack. It doesn't look like they are designed to attach directly. The back pack only has two connection points, so the tail pack might not be too secure if connected there. It could be done but you would have to rig something up. Jan 8, 2014
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Stephan M: Technically yes! The US20 can be attached to the R20. However, Kriega only recommend the US-5 or US-10 to be attached to the R20 while riding. Since the US-20 would make the backpack unwieldy and overly heavy. Jan 8, 2014

Rhett V: I have an r20 and a us10 tail bag. When I attach my us-10 to my r20 and load everything up it does get heavy and definitely wouldn't want the us20 attached to it. Jan 25, 2014

brian s: not sure on the 17 as my laptop is a tiny 11 inch and yes it fits easily but i do know that my size 14 tennis shoes will fit but dont leave a whole lot of room for other items. I wish i could help you more. if i was planning on packing lap top and shoes on regular basic plus other items i would think on the R25. i wish i had bought it instead, as the 20 is little smaller than i expected.

Ray M: I cannot totally answer this question. I can put my 13" MacBook Air in this, and there is still plenty of space. On a daily basis, I take my ran suit (rolled up at the bottom), a lunch bag, thermos, and smaller portable bag in this backpack to/from work. There is ample space in the bag for many things, but cannot attest to the size for the laptop. Capacity is good! :) Nov 17, 2013
Reply to Ray Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Benjamin S: Yes. My 15" Mac Book Pro fits with room to spare on width and height. The 17" is a little over 1" bigger and wouldn't have an issue. The storage compartment is not huge, but would fit a pair of tennis shoes. I would think boots or stiff dress shoes might be a bit tight. Nov 18, 2013

Saladin J: I doubt it, you may be able to squeeze a slim 17 inch laptop in there but regular 17 inch laptops probably won't fit. It will fit a couple pairs of shoes though. Nov 17, 2013

anne r: It must be the Kube pocket they're talking about. It's a nice little square cube that zips up. Just know that finding placement so it is accessible but doesn't smack your helmet or get in your way while riding takes some experimentation. Dec 16, 2013

Rhett V: I have the r20 and a kube mounted to the harness. I like it to hold my sunglasses. My only complaint is it does get in the way of your helmet a little when you turn your head. Jan 25, 2014

David D asked: When using a regular back pack I have a problem where the back of my helmet gets caught on it when I tuck down keeping me from getting into the proper position so I can see. Does this sit far enough down so I can tuck properly without interfering with the helmet?
Thanks!

Guillaume C: I mean you will probably still make contact with the bag but it didn't interfere with my tuck...wore it on my Gixxer 750 last week and was totally fine. Every backpack in gonna limit you to some degree but I found this one did a very nice job at managing load without putting strain on my shoulders and clavicle. Like I said I didn't feel overly restricted in regards to motion and was able to get into the tuck no problem. Mar 19, 2014

colin b: it should be fine, i have worn it with my shoe rf1100 helmet (which does have a little rubber spoiler on the back) and it doesnt rub at all when tucked in on my gsxr. may depend how much you stuff in there though, i havent tried it with the bag at full capacity, just normal load for me which is a laptop, notebook and sometimes sneakers.

anne r: There are 3 settings for the length that can be set on the top of the arm straps. One, two and three dots. I use two dots and I'm 5ft5. I ride upright. I'm sure that if you increased the length, it is customizable for your seating position. In addition, there is an optional waist strap that helps the pack stay in place. Mar 18, 2014

brian s: everyone is built different but i have to say i never have that problem with my r20. I did have that same issue with some off the shelf back backs i used to use. Using the r20 is night and day compared to a regular backback. Mar 19, 2014

A shopper asked: Will this fit a clothes packer like the Timbuktu OCD? I want to commute to work and take my clothes, the packer is 14 x 10.2 inches. Also, anybody know of any good packers or ways to transport clothes on a motorcycle wrinkle free? Aug 19, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Kevin B: A packer like the one you describe will fit. Actually, if that's all you're carrying - a shirt and a pair of pants - this bag is overkill, but it's a good size if you're carrying shoes as well. If you need to carry a jacket, too, forget it - it will get wrinkled in ANY backpack. Whether your clothes will come out wrinkle-free really depends on how you fold them - the packer just makes it easier and keeps them flat. Aug 21, 2013

Louis P: I have the Kriega R20 and a medium sized eBags packing cube. The dimensions in the packing cube are 3 x 9.8 x 13.8 inches and I was able to fit that inside the Kriega. Not sure how that measures with the Timbukto OCD but hopefully this helps. Aug 21, 2013

brian s: from the size i would say it will fit. i carry two text books and a binder . one of the books is an oversized medical book aprox. 12x10 and 1 and 1/2 thick. with the packer being soft sided i would say it would fit. Aug 20, 2013

david m: I can't carry many clothes in the R20. I have a separate backpack for gym, extra shoes and such. An ole Navy trick is to roll your clothes up before placing in a bag. Save space and does help w wrinkles. Aug 20, 2013
Reply to david Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)

Delta: Inside the backpack there is a pouch that could probably be used for a laptop. It measures roughly 12 inches deep by 10 inches wide. It is a loose pouch though, so the laptop would probably not be secure against the back. I used it for a couple of books and it was great for that. Nov 7, 2012

8675309J: There's an elastic flap/separator where you can tuck your laptop (in the back compartment), but there's no special cushioning. However, slide my laptop in there all the time, and it works great. Jul 23, 2012

RevZilla: Neither the R20, nor the R25 are fully waterproof. Of the backpack options, the R30 is the only that is totally waterproof. As an alternative, the US-10 is fully waterproof and would take a small laptop or iPad type device. The US-10 can be attached to the R20 or R25. May 17, 2012

McGrathew: It's water resistant. You can get a 15" laptop in it easily, but it doesn't have the usual padded slot. The slot it does have won't protect your laptop from your other items, so pack wisely. Sep 3, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
John S: Nope. It's a very basic backpack as far as the internal compartment goes. That being said, the harness system and overall ergonomics of the pack are second to none. It's super comfortable when riding. I just tried getting my smallest full face helmet in there (Nexx XR1R Carbon) and it's not going to happen. Mar 28, 2014
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
melinda k: No, the interior does not have a helmet compartment. You *might* be able to stuff one in there but it would be a tight fit and the pack isn't specifically designed for it.

Even if you DID manage to fit a full-face helmet in there, I doubt the pack would be very comfortable to wear that way.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Craig W: Don't know much about the oxford, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Kreiga. It seems to have lived up to his reputation of high quality. I like the one point harness that comes with the r20. It feels very secure. I recently used it and had a full size DSLR and zoom lens and a bunch of other heavy stuff and I never noticed the bag while I was riding. Also, waterproofing is not an issue for me as I rarely ride in the rainy (It hardly ever rains here in LA ;-)) Jan 2, 2014

brian s: I know nothing about the oxford bag so cant say anything to its merits. All i can say is that i love my r20 and would buy it again in a second. I hate backpacks and tried to wear others while riding but the r20 is amazing you will not realize it is on you. it is that comfortable. rain wise, i have been through some rain and nothing inside was even damp BUT it wasnt a hard down pour. Also the r20 only has the 2 point harness you have to move up to r25 to get full 4 point. Jan 2, 2014

mark p: No experience with the oxford, but the kreiga is the best pack barr none that I've ever seen. No weight on shoulders or back. Giant opening for easy on/off. Load straps vacuum pack contents into a tight unit. After 5 min I forget it's there. Wildly impressed with kreiga. If you go that rout You will not be disappointed. Jan 2, 2014

Manuel H: I have the Kriega r20 and It's great. With the harness you don't eve feel it on your back.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Rory G: I'm not certain about the R15 but I use the R20 to commute every day to work and I can fit my laptop, pair of dress shoes and maybe my lunch and gloves. There isn't much room for anything else after that. So depends on what you need it for. Honestly, I think I should have gone for the R25 just for the extra space but I prefer the smaller latch system of the R20 as it looks more like a standard backpack. Nov 22, 2013

JIM C: I bought the R20 last year as a commuter bag to haul files laptop and whatever. It has a divider in main compartment and a small zippered compartment. It also has a fairly good sized zippered pocket assesible from the outside of bag. I've never used for trips and so have never tried to see how much crap I could stuff inside, or how it compares to the r15, but I can tell you from a comfort and ease of wearing, I can't imagine another pack that would be better. Do I wish it had more little pockets to but little nick nack stuff, yes, but for a day in day out pack it just works. If I lost this one I would another without hesitation. Nov 22, 2013

Jeff S: 20 is a great bag -- nice mount of space ( wouldn't want any less ) and forms to your body really well -- also easy to get arms in and out of which is saying a lot! Jan 9, 2014

A shopper asked: Not sure if I read it right on some websites, but is it possible to make this into a tail bag? Does it come with Tail bag attachments? May 8, 2012

RevZilla: This bag is not ideal for tailbag use, though with the right straps it is possible. The straps that are nessecary would come with any of the US models (Universal System). The US-20 is the better choice, and also comes with a strap for carrying as a messenger bag. Alternatively, you can purchase the R-20 and the US-10 can attach to it, or the US-10 can be made into a tailbag. May 16, 2012

amp63: There are no separate tail bag straps, but you can easily use the 3 straps to attach it to your tail. I used it yesterday, as a tail bag, and went through a very bumpy technical section. It didn't budge. Sep 30, 2012

A shopper asked: Is there an easy way to carry my laptop with this laptop? Sometimes I don't want to leave it on my bike but I am walking around long enough that carrying my helmet in my hand can become tiresome... Sep 23, 2012
