Kriega R20 Backpack
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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 youÂ´re wearing a backpack thanks to the weight transfer from your shoulder to your sternum. A must for everyday commuting.

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.
