Kriega R20 Backpack
My New Fav Pack
This pack is awesome! It has an excellent fit and you don't even realize you have a pack on. It distributes weight well and looks cool doing it. Plenty of room when needed but able to cinch it up when there's not much in there. I use it pretty much every time I'm out. My only minor complaint is that the main pouch only has one zipper. I like two zippers and I feel like most packs have two but it's not that big of a deal. It took me a while to decide between the R15, R20 and R25 but I think I went with the right choice with the R20. That being said... I want all three. This pack is worth the price and you should rock one.

Great Backpack But...
So this pack is amazing. It just looks high quality, feels high quality, has the perfect amount of room for just a daily commute but has one major flaw for me: it impedes the movement of my helmet. I get a stiff neck on just a short ride and I don't know if it's just how low my helmet sits or what, but I do not have full range of movement while wearing this pack.
I had only had it for a week or so now and have used it about 10 times or so. It is super comfortable and adjusts like a breeze, but I am strongly considering returning it because of this major flaw. I just can't believe that nowhere in the manufacturing process nobody put a helmet on, sat on a sportbike and though, "Huh, this isn't comfortable."

This backpack is absolutely wonderful. My back is not sore and neither are my shoulders. It is ergonomic, and the chest clip + straps makes this thing easy to put on and take off. My arms don't get stuck at all when I have gear on.
It fits a 15.6" laptop with little room to spare. If you wanted to put something bigger then it probably isn't going to happen. This backpack does everything I needed one for.

Best Backpack Period
The bag is amazing, one of the best pieces of kit I have. I ride a lot of dual sport and thought the bag is not touted as being fully waterproof, it is as close as any piece of luggage I have. I use it everyday for work, and I wouldn't want anything bigger for the trails and big trips I do in the summer. No issues over the last two years with daily use. If it broke, or I lost it, I would buy another immediately.

Where have you been my whole life!!
The only negative thing I can say about this product is....I waited to long to purchase one.
My R20 arrived the day before my 2,000 mile trip, I was a bit worried in the beginning but after the first five hours I knew i had made the right call.
In regards to fit: Im 6' 2" with a 50" chest. The QUADLOC system fit very well. Other brands cut into your arm pits, not this system, the straps centers on your chest giving you arms full range of motion without the bind of other brands.
With a strong north wind and speeds averaging in the upper 40s the R20 was very stable with a moderate load.

I've had many backpacks for both hiking and off road motorcycling. This is one of the very best. Love the QuadLoc harness system......it makes this backpack extremely easy to carry and operate.

Very well built
I bought this backpack and have been using it for quite sometime now. I can say I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Backpack. I have recently trashed my other everyday backpacks like my Jansport for this R20. The size was smaller than I was expecting, being that I didn't measure the amount of space I actually needed, but no matter how full I stuff this thing I always seem to squeeze everything in. The Zippers are the best quality zippers I have ever zipped. could probably squeeze a baby elephant in this thing. love it and would buy it again if given the option.

Great commuter bag, perfect size!
The R20 really is the perfect size bag. I was on the fence about getting the R20 vs the R25 or even the 30, but after I received it in the mail, it has turned out to be the perfect size for commuting. I thought it would be a little small, I'm used to using larger Ogio bags for school, but this bag can fit a ton of stuff.
Things that I like:
-stays high on my back while riding
-front locking system
-dots on the straps help keep things equal
-back protector pouch/laptop pouch
Things that I don't like:
